I had the pleasure of being interviewed for Irina’s excellent website, I Read Labels For You, where she helps moms and families navigate the multi-syllabic ingredients in even those products touting the phrases “natural” and “organic.” This is a priceless resource for those interested in mitigating the health impact of our modern-day toxic environment, and I spoke with her about how our interests overlap. I also tried to shed some light on why there are so few doctors sounding the alarm and educating patients in the office:

Conventional doctors feel uncomfortable making recommendations around anything but medication for fear that their recommendations are not based in real science.  There seems to be a changing tide; however, and an increasing sense that we cannot wait for the fallout of some of these exposures because of how persistent many of these chemicals are in the environment.
