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.

What is the point of ingredient and calorie labels if they can’t be trusted?
There is NO safe level of this ingredient and food producers should cease and desist the industrial production of it. In fact, eating just a tiny amount of this nasty ingredient can increase your risk of heart disease and make you store more and more visceral fat (the belly fat most golfers have) A dangerous kind of belly fat that’s almost impossible to get rid of. We want to help you learn EXACTLY how to eliminate this toxic food from your kitchen forever. MANY of the “health” food labels that show zero amount of this toxic ingredient contain significant amounts, but food companies get to LIE about it.

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.

Rock and Spectre are no strangers to the music scene, with many years experience rocking crowds of all sizes, so you can expect this to be a trip down memory lane, geeking out over our favorite bands, sharing ugly (and sometimes disturbing) stories from the road, but most of all learning from Toxic Radio what it takes to create an honest new brand and give the finger to conformity!

Spring cleaning not only refers to cleaning our homes and our minds, but also removing negative people from our lives. We tend to hold onto negative thoughts in our minds and clutter in our closets, but did you know that we tend to hold on to other people? It's hard to let people go, especially when we feel like we have a connection with them or we think we "owe" them something: "I really like this guy. He's not that bad...maybe he didn't mean those things he said" or "Well...he/she's always been there for me." Toxic people do not have your best interests at heart and can't give you what you're looking for. What price are you willing to pay to keep them around? Tune in as we discuss the characteristics of toxic people, why it's hard for people to leave them, and how to get away from them.
