"Unacceptable Levels" is a story about the chemicals in our bodies, how they got there, and what we can do about it. The film opens a door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies carry so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future.

Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Even our unborn children are affected. Due to this constant exposure, we have approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interacting with our cells every single day. Modern science really didn't understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is changing.

To explore different facets of common chemical exposure, "Unacceptable Levels" follows a father on a personal journey as he attempts to bring these issues to light for everyone.

Please join us, and bring a friend, a family member, or your neighbor for this fascinating film screening, and an open public discussion afterwards.
