A study by Young et al, published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, found that nail polish contains plasticizers to make it flexible and chip-resistant, but as endocrine disruptors, these chemicals–which can be absorbed into skin or inhaled–may adversely affect repr…
The journal Chemistry World has published a great overall summary of the PFAS contamination problem and what is being done about it.
Women’s Voices for the Earth put out a useful infographic about fragrance that you can download and print.
A study released by researchers at McGill University in Montreal revealed that steeping a single silky plastic tea bag at brewing temperature (95C) releases approximately 11.6 billion microplastics and 3.
A study by Flarend et al, published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, found that a one-time use of aluminum chlorohydrate, found in many antiperspirants, applied to the skin is not a significant contribution to the body burden of aluminium.
This study by Fraser et al, published in the journal Environment International, found that polyfluorinated compounds, or PFCs, are ubiquitous in indoor environments and suggest that many PFCs may be higher in the dust of offices than in other microenvironments.
This study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, reviewed the scientific literature about indoor exposures and asthma, found that multiple indoor exposures, especially dampness-related agents, merit increased attention to prevent exacerbation of asthma, possibly even in non-sensitized ind…
Excellent and welcoming and I look forward to continuing! It’s what I feel has been missing after my surgeries and all the doctor visits. Thank you!
“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”
“I love that this course provides participants with evidence-based information and concrete tools for living a happier and healthier life, even while coping with a cancer diagnosis.”
