If you could, would you like to know how long you had to live? What diseases you’re susceptible to? Or, what the environment around you is doing to your overall health? Ultimately, would you want to know how you might die? In EXPERIMENTAL MAN: What One Man’s Body Reveals About His Future, Your Health, and Our Toxic World, Duncan takes "guinea pig" journalism to the very edge of science, building on award-winning articles he wrote for National Geographic and Wired, in which he was tested for hundreds of chemical toxins – from pesticides to plastic additives – and for millions of genetic markers associated with disease, emotions, and other traits.
David Ewing Duncan is the author of seven books including the worldwide bestseller Calendar. He is Chief Correspondent of public radio's Biotech Nation, a commentator on NPR's Morning Edition, and a contributing editor and a columnist for Conde Nast Portfolio.
