Environmental Toxins

There are over 90,000 commercial, industrial, and agricultural chemicals currently registered and available for use in the United States, the majority of which have never been tested in humans for safety or toxicity. Only 5 chemicals have been taken off out the U.S. market since 1976, under the Toxic Substance Control Act. The food industry alone uses over 3,000 different chemicals and billions of pounds annually of chemicals that have been grandfathered in as 'safe', under the Generally Regarded as Safe regulations. Dr. Aly Cohen will discuss evidence-based data on everyday chemicals that we put in, on, and around our bodies and how they contribute to human health conditions, such as obesity, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, infertility, mental health disorders, and cancer. She will discuss dietary approaches to reduce toxicity, clean drinking water, beneficial supplements, indoor & outdoor air quality, sleep hygiene, stress management, and safe use of cellular technology.
