We’re surrounded by tens of thousands of chemicals every day. They lurk in our food, drinking water, personal care products, household cleaners, furniture, clothing, children’s toys—you name it.
More than 80,000 of those chemicals have undergone little or no safety testing.
Constant exposure to toxins is making us sick in ways we don’t yet fully understand, says green living expert and Mamavation.com founder Leah Segedie in her new book, “Green Enough: Eat Better, Live Cleaner, Be Happier.”
Our government does more to protect the chemical manufacturers than it does to protect us. So how do we protect ourselves "enough"—without driving ourselves "batshit crazy," Segedie asks?
In her book, Segedie exposes thousands of brands and products that contain toxic and hormone-disrupting ingredients. She also offers sane, common-sense guidance for choosing safer, toxin-free products, as well as advice on where to buy meat, dairy and eggs that don’t contain antibiotics, GMOs, growth hormones and dangerous pathogens.
