"Brain Robber: The Poisoning of America by Rotten Egg Gas" examines one of the most insidious yet underpublicized public health threats we face today - overexposure to the hydrogen sulfide gas that permeates our environment, our homes, our food, and our economy. It is the first full-scale report on the effects of the 'rotten egg gas' that emanates from volcanoes, caves, and hot springs, but is also a byproduct of energy production, large-scale livestock operations, sewage treatment, and other industrial processes. Scientific studies show that exposure to H2S overwhelms impulses and stops energy flow in the brain, and all signs point to the dangers being worse for children. Drawing on this landmark research, as well as interviews with individual patients and community groups, "Brain Robber" maps out the entire issue of 'rotten egg gas' - where it comes from, how we are exposed to it, what kind of damage it can cause, and what the government, industry, and citizens can and must do to alleviate the danger.
