In this episode of the Be Well podcast, we’re joined by nontoxic lifestyle expert Sophia Gushee, author of “A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures.” According to Gushee, since World War II, over 82,000 chemicals have been introduced into American commerce. She talks to us about how many of these chemicals are lurking in our own homes — and the steps we can all start taking to detox our spaces.
Gushee didn’t use to worry about toxins, but once she became pregnant, she became motivated by a desire to provide the healthiest home possible for her kids. So what are some of the things we can do? Improve indoor air quality by ventilating our homes better, investing in a good air purifier, washing our hands frequently, and taking our shoes off before we come inside.
Also in this episode: electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and the air pollution coming from our electronic devices.
