Why are so many people dying of cancer and other diseases? Are there toxic chemicals to blame? In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer, talks to Alice Shabecoff to discuss her book, Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children. If you would like to learn what you can do to protect yourself and your children from these toxic assaults, stay tuned!
Alice Shabecoff is an advocate who has been working diligently to raise awareness about the dangers of the chemical use in our environment as well as inside our own homes. She educates the public about how these toxic chemicals have impacted our health and what we can do about it. Alice is the author of Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children, which she co-authored with her husband, Philip. The Shabecoffs reveal that the children of baby boomers—the first to be raised in a truly "toxified" world—have higher rates of birth defects, asthma, cancer, autism and a frightening range of other neurological illnesses from ADHD to mental retardation and other serious chronic illnesses, than previous generations.
Bio: Alice Shabecoff is co-author with her husband Philip of Poisoned for Profit: The Toxic Assault on our Children. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Birth Defect Research for Children.

How many chemicals are sitting under your sink? What do you use to wash your counter tops, stove top, oven, sinks, cutting board, dishes, pots and pans? No doubt, you are trying so hard to keep everything clean and sanitized. Odds are, you have a kitchen laced with unhealthy chemicals. Our guest, Leslie Reichert, “The Green Cleaning Coach” is a nationally-recognized “green” home-keeping expert who knows how to use food based liquids to clean. As she says, you’ll be moving your cleaning solutions from under your sink to your pantry or cabinets. Her book, The Joy of Green Cleaning, rightly lets you know Leslie is a lot of fun; cleaning your kitchen won’t be drudgery!
My special guest today is Sharon Ball. We will be talking about how the toxins and chemicals in our lives are leading us into obesity and early death.
Sharon is a Baby Boomer; one of those people from 48 to 66 years of age who are as a group the healthiest, best educated and most affluent generation in the history of our country. Many baby boomers could live into their 90’s or even older. And she wants to help both herself and others to live those years as vibrantly and satisfyingly as possible and not with disability and depression. Sharon sees the foundation of a vibrant and satisfying life that of health and wellness. Physical, Spiritual, and Mental health and wellness.
Sharon has been in health care, both as a nurse and as a mid-level provider for over 30 years. She became more interested in helping people stay healthy or recreating their health rather than just treating illness. She authored the book REINVENTING YOURSELF TODAY in 2011 and went on to add psychology, alternative and functional medicine skills to those of traditional medicine to help you eliminate the self-defeating behaviors and roadblocks that stop you from living a happy, successful and healthy life. Self-development, time management and organization, weight loss, smoking cessation, self-esteem growth, managing life transitions or surviving grief are all issues that she helps people achieve success in. She will help you live by DESIGN, not by DEFAULT. You can find more information about her at http://www.reinventingyourselftoday.com
Put Toxic chemicals to rest, permanently and you will stay healthy longer, and resist disease longer and live longer.
Pollution you expose yourself to on a regular basis, of particular concern are chemicals known or suspected to be carcinogenic. Even "green" alternatives can contain harmful ingredients. It’s unfortunate, but the terms “green” and “natural” are really nothing more than marketing terms, and they do not automatically equate to safety. Moreover, many ingredients do not even have to be listed on the label in the first place, which makes it even more difficult to discern what you’re being exposed to. The manufacturers have conveniently lobbied the government to exempt them from this requirement, so they can purposely omit any ingredient that is considered a secret formula from its label. Not surprisingly, many of these non-disclosed ingredients are actually very toxic.
Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Even our unborn children are affected. Due to this constant exposure, we have approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is changing.
Join me as I interview the filmmaker of the movie, Ed Brown, "Unacceptable Levels" a powerful film that explores:
What the top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law are saying about the current levels of chemicals in our most commonly used products
What the current level of chemical exposure has to do with rising rates of disease, and long-term health results
What you can do to protect you and your family from chemical exposure
Lara Adler, a toxins expert, talks to me about chemicals, called obesegens, that make you FAT! It seems that Americans and people all over the world are living in an ‘obesogenic’ environment.

These chemicals promote obesity in a number of ways that may alarm you. Lara is going to tell you where they lurk and what you can do to avoid them.
