“Innately villainous and shrouded by deceit, PCBs are the cigarettes of the chemical world.  Finally, with Biocidal, their treacherous story is told.  And, because all of us on Earth carry molecules of PCBs within our bodies, it is a story that all of us on Earth need to hear.  Happily, Ted Dracos makes listening to PCBs a captivating task.”
—Sandra Steingraber, biologist and author, Living Downstream: An Ecologist’s Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment
