Clouded in Clarity: A comic on chemicals & controversy

Clouded in Clarity: A comic on chemicals & controversy

The ongoing health concerns and mixed messaging over the chemical BPA

Harmful chemicals are difficult to understand. So, to pair with our investigation, "Exposed" we present EHN's first comic, "Clouded in Clarity," which focuses on BPA and the controversy around an ongoing, massive study on it.


We hope you read the entire series — it's worth it. But we know your time is valuable and, hey, comics are cool!

With words from our editor Brian Bienkowski and art from the incomparable Andrew Towl, Clouded in Clarity is a true story, though some quotes have been added, amended or edited for brevity and context.

Enjoy!
