Nourishing Your Health by Living Green
Modern life exposes us to chemicals that may be subtly or profoundly impacting our health.  We absorb toxins in the food we eat, the beverages we drink, the products we put on our skin, and the sprays we use in and around our homes. Mounting evidence links environmental toxins to developmental disorders, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and neurodegenerative changes. Dr. Maizes addresses the evidence for harm, the steps we can take to reduce exposures, and the multitude of resources that can help nourish our own health and that of future generations.
