    How to Protect Yourself From Glyphosate with Kelly Ryerson

    How to Protect Yourself From Glyphosate with Kelly Ryerson

    My goal is not to be a fearmonger, but today’s topic is not to be taken lightly. The use of glyphosate on our crops and in our environment is a public health emergency. Glyphosate, the active chemical in the weedkiller product Roundup, is the most widely used pesticide on the planet. Glyphosate is having a devastating impact on our health. It is linked to many serious health conditions, including cancer, liver disease, and infertility. Yet it’s used by farmers, landscapers, in schools and parks and even by your neighbors. 
    Today’s guest Kelly Ryerson, is here to help us understand glyphosate and its uses, the impact it is having on human and planetary health, and most importantly, she will provide us with easy ways to reduce our exposure to this incredibly harmful chemical.

    How Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals are Impacting Your Health and What to do About it With Dr. Leo Trasande

    How Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals are Impacting Your Health and What to do About it With Dr. Leo Trasande

    It’s quite likely that your doctor has never mentioned Endocrine Disrupting chemicals, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t impacting your health. Each and every one of us, albeit often invisibly: is impacted by endocrine-disrupting chemicals every single day. They are in our food, our personal care and cleaning products, and in so many other aspects of our daily life. 
    For many years the research focused only on early-life exposures, but now endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are understood to contribute substantially to chronic disease in adulthood, especially metabolic, cardiovascular, and reproductive consequences as well as endocrine cancers. 
    My guest today is Dr. Leo Trasande, With his extensive background as a medical doctor, researcher, health policy expert, and author, Dr. Trasande is committed to providing us with the tools and knowledge necessary to reduce our exposure to these chemicals. Our conversation today goes beyond merely spotlighting the issue; it's about providing actionable solutions and most importantly, fostering optimism for a safer and healthier future.

    What you need to know about chemical vs physical sunscreen with Christina Ross

    What you need to know about chemical vs physical sunscreen with Christina Ross

    Have you ever found yourself standing amidst the sunscreen options, gazing at shelves brimming with choices, and pondering, "Which sunscreen is the right choice for me? What sets apart physical zinc sunscreen from chemical sunscreen, and are the chemicals truly detrimental to my health? Do they pose a threat to coral reefs?"
    While it's crucial to wear sunscreen for skin cancer prevention, the challenge lies in selecting a sunscreen that not only offers confidence in safety but also provides effective sun protection.
    Today’s guest, Christina Ross, is going to help us answer these questions and so much more. Christina is a senior scientist with Credo Beauty who has spent much of her career looking at the safety and regulatory landscape of consumer products, including sunscreens.  
    Christina will guide us through understanding the disparities between physical and chemical sunscreens. She'll address safety concerns associated with chemical sunscreens and help us tackle the essential question: How do we choose a sunscreen that prioritizes safety?

    What you need to know about Clean Beauty with Mia Davis and Christina Ross

    What you need to know about Clean Beauty with Mia Davis and Christina Ross

    There are thousands of chemicals used in personal care products. These chemicals are in lotion, deodorant, toothpaste, skincare and makeup, and the majority have never been tested for human health and safety. No matter your gender or age, you are being exposed to these chemicals and they could be having a negative impact on your health.  In the US there is no requirement for pre-market testing of ingredients to determine their safety and very little government regulation to protect us as consumers. 
     
    So, how do you know who to trust, and how can you ensure you are choosing safer products? That is what you will learn in today’s episode. My guests are Mia Davis and Christina Ross, two experts with a passion for safer ingredients and greater regulation in the beauty industry. Mia is a clean beauty pioneer who created and implemented some of the leading standards in the industry, including The Credo Clean Standard and Beautycounter’s Never List. Christina is Senior Scientist at Credo Beauty where she is responsible for product and ingredient safety.
     
    Mia and Christina are here to help us understand the landscape of chemicals, lack of safety data and regulation in the beauty industry, and the most valuable thing you will walk away with from today’s episode is what you can do to make safer choices for you and your family.
