Listen now
This episode is brought to you by AquaTru and Lumebox.  Environmental toxins, such as PFAs present in nonstick cookware, pose significant health risks, including increased risk of chronic diseases, fertility issues, hypertension, and thyroid complications. These kitchen toxins are particularly concerning as they can infiltrate our bodies through the food we consume, food preparation surfaces, and even our drinking water. By understanding the impact of these hidden chemicals and their common sources, we empower ourselves to make informed consumer choices, minimize exposure, and foster better health outcomes for ourselves and our families. Today on The Dhru Purohit Show, Dhru sits down with environmental educator Lara Adler to discuss environmental toxins in our home. Lara shares the top sources of plastic and toxic cookware in our kitchens and how we can reduce our daily exposure without feeling overwhelmed. Lara Adler is an Environmental Health Educator and Science Communicator who teaches health professionals and individuals with health-based businesses to better understand the role of environmental chemical exposures in causing or contributing to chronic health issues so they can more comprehensively support the clients/patients they serve.
