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.

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.
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.

The realization has slowly been dawning on increasing numbers in the past few years that we’re living in a soup of toxic chemicals. Toxic chemicals are sadly omnipresent in our modern world – in our water, air, food, clothing, carpeting, furniture, the soil, etc. Report after report comes out these days on new health impacts of these toxicants. Is there any change on the horizon? Diane Brandon, your Host and author of Intuition for Beginners, is joined this week by John Warner, Ph. D., Founder and President of the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, founder of University of Massachusetts - Boston's first Green Chemistry Ph.D. program, and co-Author of Green Chemistry: Theory and Practice.

He’ll be sharing the ins and outs of Green Chemistry with us, where we are in the process of replacing toxic chemicals, and what he envisions for the future.
Life becomes stagnant when we can’t seem to push pass the people we think we love. This will only happen when we continue to keep those toxic relationships on life support by talking about them daily.

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
