Publisher's Summary

After years of prosecuting hard-core criminals, rising legal star Alan Bell took a private sector job in South Florida's newest skyscraper. Suddenly, he suffered such bizarre medical symptoms, doctors suspected he'd been poisoned by the Mafia. Bell's rapidly declining health forced him to flee his glamorous Miami life to a sterile "bubble" in the remote Arizona desert.

As his career and marriage dissolved, Bell pursued medical treatments in a race against time, hoping to stay alive and raise his young daughter, his one desperate reason to keep going. He eventually discovered he wasn't poisoned by a criminal, but by his office building. His search for a cure led him to discover the horrifying truth: his tragedy was just the tip of the iceberg. Millions of people fall ill and die each year because of toxic chemical exposures - without knowing they're at risk.

Stunned by what he discovered, Bell chose to fight back, turning his plight into an opportunity. Despite his precarious health, he began collaborating with scientists dedicated to raising awareness about this issue. Soon, he also found himself drawn back into the legal field, teaming up with top lawyers fighting for those who had already fallen ill.

Both a riveting medical mystery and a cautionary tale, this book puts a human face on the hidden truths behind toxic dangers assaulting us in our everyday environments - and offers practical ways to protect ourselves and our children.

Life altering story

This story reminds us that living the American Dream is meaningless if you don't have your health and your family. This is one man's incredible journey. When things were hopeless he fought to stay alive, fight for the lives of others and leave this planet better than he found it. Inspiring, informative and touching.

Must Read

Where does Poisoned rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the very best and useful medical story books I have read.

What did you like best about this story?

Mr. Bell's establishment of the Environmental Health Foundation and helping others with his condition.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Mr. Bell took his first walk outside of his "bubble" in Arizona.

Any additional comments?

This is a must read for all clinicians and highly recommended for laypersons who know some one or are themselves suffering with multiple chemical sensitivity. This is a very real and quality of life (if not life itself) robbing condition which can be prevented if you are informed.
