Editorial Reviews

Narrated by Olivia Newton-John, Exposure unwinds like 60 Minutes "lite" the goods are in there somewhere, but the production isn't quite sure how to package them. It works best as a beginner's guide to environmental dangers that may be boosting breast cancer rates: radiation, toxic chemicals, and therapeutic drugs. The scientific and medical experts, nearly all women, do an excellent job making concepts understandable. The ever-quotable Dr. Susan Love, known for her breast cancer research, addresses the controversy over mammograms for women under age 50. Activists are also part of the story as several, including a model who had a mastectomy, speak out about the need for women to fight for research that will lead to breast cancer prevention. It often seems like an information-filled tract from Big Sister that's trying to incite fear in the masses. By that measure, it scarily succeeds. Valerie J. Nelson, Amazon.com

The Canadian producers of this video and I often show up at the same conferences. They have clearly put their hearts and collective knowledge into this production and push it relentlessly into the hands of anyone with concern for our future. As the review below suggests, their is an air of Big Sister linked to this film. TBS
