I recently gave a TEDx talk in the Berkshires speaking about environmentally-induced illness and disease. Did you know that one quarter of all deaths worldwide could be prevented if we mitigated environmental exposures?
If you want to learn more about how exposures to endocrine-disrupting and other toxic chemicals in our everyday lives rob us of our health and wellbeing, then watch my full talk (scroll to bottom of page). In the meantime, here are five things I would urge you to start doing now to reduce your exposure to harmful substances:
Convenience is often the reason we buy certain products. Take dishwasher and laundry pods or “sheets.” Do we need them? Truthfully, we could measure out powder or liquid detergent, but these small household helpers have become cleaning staples in many homes due to their ease of use. All you need to do is pop one of these pods, tabs, sheets or strips into your machine – no measuring – and voilà: spotless dishes or clean clothes. These human-made modern miracles not only save you time, but in the end, you’re left with… nothing! Hallelujah!
In the wintertime, perhaps more than any other time of year, we prize our gear. Particularly our outdoor gear making it possible and even fun to be adventuring in the wind, cold, rain and fog. I suppose that’s why they say, there’s no bad weather, just bad clothing. Bottom line, if you’re enjoying outdoor activities, you’ve got performance gear on.
