Before starting a family, Soozie Eastman, daughter of an industrial chemical distributor, embarks on a journey to find out the levels of toxins in her body and discover if there is anything she or anyone else can do to change them. Soozie has just learned that hundreds of synthetic toxins are now found in every baby born in America and the government and chemical corporations are doing little to protect citizens and consumers.
With guidance from world-renowned physicians and environmental leaders, interviews with scientists and politicians, and stories of everyday Americans, Soozie uncovers how we got to be so overloaded with chemicals and explores whether there is anything we can do to take control of our exposure.
Just as she feared, extensive blood testing reveals alarming levels of chemicals such as organophosphates and PBDEs in her body, so she undertakes a rigorous detox regimen of dietary changes, exercise, and informed product choices designed to manage and minimize her toxic body burden. But can she hit the reset button or is it too late?

“‘Overload’ leads viewers along an entertaining personal journey, beginning with the startling discovery that we each carry hundreds of synthetic chemical ingredients in our bodies that are commonly used in consumer products, without any effective regulatory oversight or understanding of the consequences. … As conscious consumers, we have the potential collective power to help drive changes that ripple further out into our communities and the industries that are the ultimate source of the problem.”— Charlie Cray, Senior Research Specialist, Greenpeace USA
“Soozie’s personal journey to learn about and reduce her exposure to harmful chemicals in everyday products is illuminating. Overload highlights that we each have the power to make meaningful changes to protect our health. Her experiences also underscore the need for governments and corporations to step up and remove these chemicals from the marketplace.”— Dr. Katie Pelch, Senior Scientist, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange REGISTER TO WATCHABOUT SOOZIE EASTMAN
