Book Details

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘chemicals’? Friendly, hostile, smelly, radioactive, volatile—chemicals are all these and much more. And it’s not possible to do without them in our daily lives because they are present in just about everything. So the next best thing to do is to separate the good chemicals from the bad ones and the absolutely deadly ones! Peppered with curious facts and useful information, Friends and Foes explores the lesser-known, mystifying universe of chemicals and guides you towards a better judgement of what chemicals to avoid and what to limit. It is your guide to the most pressing need of the hour—a healthier and environment-friendly life.
