    I’d heard that scented products are generally “bad,” but the evidence put together here is so compelling that I’m buying unscented products for our home for the first time. Surprisingly, I am not missing the scents like I thought I would. Thank you, Dr. Greger!

    Love the videos! Do you have a suggested list of household products that are “lower offgassing” and safer for our newborn? Thanks for your help Doc.

    For all sorts of home and bath products, many of which you can’t avoid (like soap and toothpaste) the absolute BEST source I’ve found is Environmental Working Group. You can check to see the toxicity of your current products, from make-up to shaving cream, to just about anything else.  Check it out here:  http://www.ewg.org/

    It reminds of this website – informative and user friendly!

    Could you post a link to your video regarding cleaning and getting chemicals off vegetables? I know I saw a title regarding this but I’m having no lick finding it. Thanks a lot for all your work.

    My daughter has terrible asthma. I have read that increasing her D and balancing the Omega 3 and 6 is a cure-all. This info is backed by studies what are your thoughts on this? Here is the link to the studies: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/04/06/managing-your-childs-asthma-with-natural-medicine.aspx

    Hi Dr Greger,
    I have a burning question regarding the cookware we use to cook our food. Apparently some articles I read mention that metals such as nickel, chromium that made up the stainless steel cookware could bleed into our foods when we eat and thus our food is contaminated with toxic carcinogens. May i ask how true is that? As I am a nickel allergic, which is the best cooking hardware to use. Heard of a type called the surgical stainless steel, which is good for cooking as it retains its nutrients more than the others, however it is also made up of higher nickel components. Hope to hear your views on it!
