Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History

When science writer Florence Williams was breastfeeding, she decided to have her milk tested for environmental contaminants. Her results were average for American women and included chemicals found in flame-retardants and jet-fuel. It's not, she says, what her daughter had in mind for dinner. It set her off on a journey to study the history of breasts: how they evolved and what modern life is doing to them. Williams is in Utah on Monday and joins Doug in studio.

Monday, May 14 at 7:00 p.m., Florence Williams will give a reading at The King's English Bookshop in Salt Lake City. Click here for details.
