On most days, many of us go about our routine rarely thinking twice about the ingredients in our shampoos and conditioners, hand soaps, lotions, laundry detergent, or even the water we feed our pets. It wasn’t until her dog fell extremely sick with a mysterious illness that Dr. Aly Cohen started to wonder if there was something toxic in her dog’s environment. This quest led her on a life-long journey to uncover the toxins all around us.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with Dr. Cohen about all things environmental toxins. From the water you drink, to the shampoo you use, to your cookware, toxins can be hidden in many places. Though it can feel overwhelming to switch out all of the areas where toxins lurk, Dr. Cohen assures us that making small swaps here and there can add up and have a major impact on our overall health.
