Hidden toxins can be found in our everyday products and increase our risk of chronic diseases like cancer. Not only can these toxins be found in products that are absorbed in our skin, but they may also be in the air we breathe and the water we drink daily. Learning about the impact of these hidden chemicals and where they are commonly found can empower us to make better choices as consumers, limit our exposure, and create better health for ourselves and our families.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Yvonne Burkart, a board-certified toxicologist. Dr. Burkart shares the top sources of hidden toxins in everyday products, like cosmetics, cleaning, and household products. Dr. Burkart shares the latest research around toxin exposure, the most common toxic ingredients and where they can be found, and her top tips on protecting ourselves from exposure and optimizing detoxification in our bodies.
Dr. Yvonne Burkart is a 22-year veteran of Toxicology with expertise in reproductive toxicity, particularly endocrine disruption, infertility, and cancer. She has also served as a Senior Toxicologist in the flavor and fragrance chemical industry, where she helped to ensure the safety of flavor ingredients, and is now a whistleblower on the lack of regulations in that field.
After going through her own health crisis from exposure to harmful chemicals and witnessing firsthand the power of a low-tox lifestyle, Dr. Yvonne began a mission to help consumers slash their toxic exposure with confidence and ease.
