    EP 39 EXPOSED! The Warnings Doctor - Dr. Gerry Goldhaber | Success or Failure?  50 Years of the Consumer Product Safety Commission

    Have we learned anything about consumer product safety in the last 50 years?  Caveat emptor:  If consumers don't look out for themselves, they can't rely on governments or corporations to effectively do so.  The stark truth is that governments and corporations sacrifice principle for profit and safety for economic growth.  For 50 years, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has aimed to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of consumer products.  The independent agency was established in 1972 by federal law to identify and evaluate product hazards, alert the public of unsafe consumer products as quickly as possible, and establish strong mandatory safety standards.  But does the Commission play a role in pushing for a more consumer-driven marketplace in which people benefit from safer products and fewer product-related injuries and deaths?  This episode of EXPOSED! explores numerous examples to answer that very important question.  And remember, the more informed you are, the safer you'll be!

    EP 38 EXPOSED! The Warnings Doctor - Dr. Gerry Goldhaber - Can the NFL make Football Safer?

    Is it possible to make football safer?  It is an important question following the terrifying injury to Buffalo Bills' Damar Hamlin during a Monday Night Football game.  His collapse reignited the NFL safety debate.  What kind of strong safety rules and protocols can the NFL implement that reduces the risk of injury?  While players understand the risks that come with playing a sport as physically aggressive as football, they shouldn’t have to worry about potentially fatal injuries every time they step on the field.  (Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa remains in the league's concussion protocol and has been ruled out for Sunday's Super Wild Card Weekend matchup against the Buffalo Bills.)  In this episode of EXPOSED! you'll hear about player safety, research and studies surrounding football, and lawsuits involving helmet warnings.  Can the Safety Triad - corporations (NFL), consumers (players and fans), and regulators (federal and state) - work as stakeholders to prioritize safety and minimize injury in this inherently dangerous sport?  This podcast traces the evolution of NFL player safety from a medical, legal, and historical perspective.  And remember, the more informed you are, the safer you'll be!

    EP 37 EXPOSED! The Warnings Doctor - Dr. Gerry Goldhaber -Hair-Raising Data About the Link Between Hair Straighteners & Cancer

    Frequent use of hair straighteners may pose an increased risk of cancer, especially among Black women.  A recent study found that women who reported regular use of hair straightening products were more than twice as likely to develop uterine cancer than women who did not.  Scientists are uncovering new details about the connection between using hair straightening products, such as chemical relaxers and pressing products, and an increased risk of cancer in women.  Researchers at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) reported an increased risk of hormone-related cancers in people who use hair straightening chemicals, which are often Black women.  As a result, Black women may be disproportionately affected.  If consumers had known all those years ago from a warning on the box to say this product could cause cancer, they likely wouldn't have used it.  Women have filed federal lawsuits against companies who manufacture these products, alleging that chemicals in the companies’ hair products caused them to develop uterine cancer or other severe health effects.  The women in the suit said they were unaware that the use of chemical hair straighteners had put them at an increased risk of cancer until the release of the NIH study.  There was never anything on the products' packaging, their lawsuits allege, indicating that normal use of the products could cause them to develop uterine fibroids or breast or uterine cancer.  Manufacturers and corporations often do not have our best interests at heart.  I write about why companies cannot be trusted for disclosing hidden hazards and potential dangers in my bestselling book, Murder, Inc.  And remember, the more informed you are, the safer you'll be!

    EP 36 EXPOSED! The Warnings Doctor - Dr. Gerry Goldhaber - Gas Stoves Could Be Leaking Toxic Chemicals

    Your stove is off and the burner is off but it could be leaking small amounts of gas.  It's odorless and colorless, but now researchers believe if you cook with natural gas it could be hazardous to your health since natural gas stoves and ovens could be leaking toxic chemicals into the air.  Gas stoves and ovens can leak harmful chemicals inside homes even when they're not in use, mounting evidence shows.  About 47 million U.S. households use such appliances, according to the federal Energy Information Administration.  A recent study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology found at least 12 hazardous air pollutants emitted from gas stoves in California, including benzene — a chemical known to cause cancer in some people.  The researchers behind the study — a group from the nonprofit energy research institute PSE Healthy Energy — took gas samples from 159 residential stoves in 16 counties throughout California.  They found benzene in 99% of the samples.  This episode of EXPOSED! explores the research to help keep you and your loved ones safe, offering helpful analysis and solutions.  Get your copy of my book murderincbook.com for more details about safety and chemicals.  And remember, the more informed you are, the safer you'll be!

    Ep 35  FDA Proposes Updates to ‘Healthy’ Claim on Food Packages

    Are you cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs?  Do you find Lucky Charms to be magically delicious?  You may want to rethink your breakfast cereal choices.  The FDA recently announced changes to criteria for manufactured foods to be labeled as “healthy,” using some popular cereals as an example of how things could change under the new guidelines.  The FDA proposed the rule change to help Americans make sounder dietary choices.  The FDA is charged with the task of protecting the general public when it comes to health and safety, holding corporations accountable for making accurate claims about the ingredients and effects of products consumed by Americans a.k.a. the Safety Triad.  As a consultant to the FDA on issues dealing with nutritional labels, I have unique insight about health, safety, nutrition, and ways consumers can make more informed food choices.  We know that nutrition is key to improving our nation’s health but too many people may not know what constitutes healthy food.  This podcast will help educate more Americans to improve health outcomes.  Get your copy of my bestselling book Murder, Inc., which is filled with eye-opening analysis and statistics about our nation's foods.  Now available in Audible, hardcover, and paperback.
