The latest national survey on the levels of chemical pollutants (such as heavy metals, toxic solvents, endocrine-disrupters, flame-retardant chemicals, PCBs), and pesticides (such as DDT) in the bodies of pregnant and non-pregnant Americans.
This is the first of a long series of videos on the role of diet in both accumulating and eliminating industrial pollutants that build up in the food chain. In this video, and also in President’s Cancer Panel Report on Environmental Risk, I set the stage. And then, we’ll get down to the nitty-gritty, in terms of what we may want to avoid to decrease our toxic burden. I’ve done dozens of other videos on persistent organic pollutants, including Fish Oil in Troubled Waters; Food Sources of PCB Chemical Pollutants; Dioxins in the Food Supply; and Industrial Pollutants in Vegans.
