We live in a time and place where we are constantly being barraged by negative things for our overall health and happiness – whether it’s chemicals, unhealthy food, or unhealthy messages we’re told will make us happier.
We need to break free from the message that consumerism will make us happier, and become aware of some of the biggest and worst negative stuff that is bombarding us, so that we can do our best to protect ourselves. We also need to understand how we got into this mess in the first place, and what possibilities we have to get out of it.
This show is brought to you by our sponsor THIRD, and we reference the following sources:
Chemerical – a great short documentary about ridding our homes of everyday cleaning chemicals, as well as some of their effects.
Fooducate – a smart-phone app which helps you understand what’s in your food. Highly recommended.
Midfully.org article on plastic and chemicals – mentions quote: “According to Dr. George Pauli, Associate Director of Science Policy, FDA Office of Food Additive Safety, the regulations mandated in 1958 assume that all plastics migrate toxins into the food they contact.” Also, the idea that nurdels are destroying our oceans.
