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. Mr. Warner is an award-winning leader in Green Chemistry and has worked to incorporate it into semiconductor design, biodegradable plastics, personal care products, solar energy, and other materials. 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.
Today Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian welcomes Dr. Janice Stanger author of the book: The Perfect Formula Diet. We’ll hear about toxic chemicals in personal care and cleaning products and how a whole foods, plant-based diet helps protect you against the health effects of toxic chemicals. Look for the companion cookbook to Season Three: Jazzy Vegetarian Classics: Vegan Twists on American Family Favorites. (You can pre-order it now!) Dr. Stanger has a Ph.D. in Human Development and Aging from University of California, and she is Certified in Plant-Based Nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation and eCornell University. She holds a M.B.A from the University of California, Berkeley and is author of Vegan From the Inside, the first-of-its kind survey of the experience of being on a plant-based diet. Dr. Stanger spent 14 years critically analyzing scientific findings until perfecting the formula she shares with us in her new book.
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. Tune in you will not want to miss our show, this Wednesday eveing at 7:PM EST
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.

ENVISION THIS: A future without the threat of toxic chemicals in our daily lives
“Unacceptable Levels” examines the unseen threat of toxic chemicals in our daily lives through the eyes of filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. Anchored in Brown’s own poignant experiences, the film follows his quest to uncover the impact of toxins on his family’s health.
To create this debut documentary, Brown traveled extensively to interview top minds in the fields of science, industry, government, law and environmental advocacy. Compiling their testimonies into a provocative narrative, he chronicles the history of industrial chemicals—from the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the shocking prevalence of unregulated chemicals in our everyday lives. The film seeks to impart greater understanding about the compounding effects of chemicals on our health; engage questioning around the potential human and environmental risks; and ultimately inspire people to take action.
Ed Brown shares what he has learned, his insights, and his vision, mission and passion with us on Envision This!

Survivor spotlight on Chris Wark,
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.
