The Human Experiment Movie Review (2015) | Roger Ebert

This is a no-frills documentary that interviews people who's medical conditions are believed to be directly related to the chemicals included in our everyday products, many of which are unregulated yet ever-present in our lives.   “The Human Experiment” starts out by sketching in the range of these phenomena via interviews with people who’ve had medical problems that are thought to be chemically related and doctors who’ve been studying them. The narrative soon enough turns to the economic and political forces behind the overall situation. Source: The Human Experiment Movie Review (2015) | Roger Ebert
