    Women vs. Toxic Chemicals

    in Environment

    Erin Switalski, Executive Director, Women’s Voices for the Earth


    All those in favor of a toxic free future, please say “aye.” Ready for this to start your new year off healthy? Women’s Voices for the Earth (WVE) was formed by a group of visionary women leaders in Missoula, Montana in 1995. Seeing that many environmental organizations at the time failed to include women in leadership positions and did not fully recognize the systemic connections between health, class, race, and the environment, WVE sought to create a new environmental organization led by women. Their incredibly important mission? To amplify women’s voices to eliminate the toxic chemicals that harm our health and communities. Imagine that! Plan to join us because our health matters – men, women, and children! This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.

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.  Tune in you will not want to miss our show, this Wednesday eveing at 7:PM EST

    Are Toxic Chemicals In Our Environment and Our Home Making Us Sick?

    in Environment

    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. She served in the 1970s as executive director of the National Consumers League, the country's oldest consumer organization, and in the 1980s as founder and executive director of the nonprofit Community Information Exchange, a nonprofit information service for the community development sector.

    Put Toxic chemicals to rest, permanently and live longer

    in Health

    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 Vietnam Vets Need To Know About Agent Orange Dioxin Poisoning

    in Military

    During the Vietnam War, the US military sprayed millions of gallons of Agent Orange and other herbicides on trees and vegetation. Several decades later, there were numerous concerns about the health effects due to exposure to these chemicals. One of the groups impacted by Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning is the servicemen who were at sea, often referred to as Blue Water Navy. This includes Coast Guard and Fleet Marine personnel. Although it has been over forty years, there are still so many servicemen as well as their offspring who continue to suffer due to Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning. While the United States Veterans Administration offers “eligible Veterans”, a free Agent Orange Registry health exam to assess possible long-term health problems related to exposure, gathering the information is quite a task. However, there are people out there who are doing everything they can to help our veterans get the help that they need. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Mr. John J. Bury, a retired US Navy and Vietnam War Veteran. He is going to talk about Agent Orange Dioxin poisoning and his work as an advocate, helping others that have also been affected.


    Today's show is sponsored by Molecular Bliss, a veteran owned business creating a new and unique molecular line of jewelry for both men and women in the form of neurotransmitters, which are Serotonin, Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Gaba.
