About the Book

The New York Times bestselling author of SuperLife and cohost with Zac Efron of the hit Netflix series Down to Earth, Darin Olien offers invaluable advice for addressing the health of our bodies and the health of the planet by identifying common products and behaviors that are harmful and providing alternatives that are non-toxic and life-enhancing.

Fatal conveniences are the toxic products we routinely use and the unhealthy things we do that our culture and corporations have made us believe are safe and necessary for living well and efficiently. These things—from deodorant, cosmetics, dental floss, and sunscreen to laundry detergent, air fresheners, carpets, and crayons to candles, tea bags, cell phones, and chewing gum—are ubiquitous in daily life . . . and they are wreaking havoc on our health and our planet. The environmental toxins found in these products create a cascade of problems, including chemical sensitivities, auto-immune issues, obesity, chronic health diseases, and more.

 Darin Olien has spent most of his adult life obsessively researching these “conveniences” and in this book, he raises our awareness of their dangers, demolishes the myth that “if it’s easy, it must also be good,” and gives us alternative choices to take control of our lives and our health. Fatal Conveniences offers a fresh perspective and achievable, small tweaks that will lead to big, life-enhancing changes.

Critical Praise

“Bending the planet to our will comes at a cost—a debt to human and environmental well-being we’ve packaged, sold, and blindly incurred that has now come due. Darin Olien’s Fatal Conveniences provides a stunning and urgent reconciliation of the many invisible ways the convenience of modern products we trust—our food, our homes, our clothing—are in truth shockingly toxic, buffered with pragmatic solutions for a healthier future. An evidence-based primer for better living, this book is a must-read reality check, offering a better way forward for all.” — Rich Roll, bestselling author of Finding Ultra

"Darin’s eye-opening book is a necessary education for us all to understand the invisible challenges of how our health is being harmed by modern toxic exposures. Alongside the shocking discoveries presented herein, Darin shares very pragmatic solutions leading to a healthier and better way forward for us and our environment." — Max Lugavere, New York Times bestselling author of Genius Foods and host of the Genius Life podcast

"Fatal Conveniences is a book the world has been waiting for, a compendium of what we don’t know, weren’t told, and are lied to about: the presence of synthetic toxins that are deceptively but deliberatively added to our food, cosmetics, clothing, and homes. Darin’s research is revelatory and shocking, a what-to-do-manual for living purely, cleanly, and simply." — Paul Hawken, Executive Director, Project Regeneration
