January 27, 2022
Dr. Valencia Porter is an expert on environmental toxins. Her new book, "Resilient Health: How to Thrive in Our Toxic World," is a roadmap to identifying threats to our food, water, soil and air, and how to minimize exposure. She discusses “forever chemicals” like Teflon and flame retardants; phthalates; glyphosate; BPA/BPS, organophosphates like chlorpyrifos, and insect repellants like pyrethroids. Conventionally trained as a pediatric neurologist, Dr. Porter has a background in Ayurvedic Medicine, having trained with Deepak Chopra; she discusses how the Doshas (vata/pitta/kapha) provide keys to individualize diet, lifestyle, and herbal treatments, and how Ayurveda’s emphasis on detoxification became the basis for her interest in environmental medicine.

The Insidious Dangers that Contaminate Our Food, Part 1
January 13, 2022
Each year, Americans consume hundreds of food products that contain truly dangerous compounds, including heavy metals, pesticides, and other harmful additives—with the blessing of the FDA. Why is this happening and why haven’t you heard about it? In "Unsafe at Any Meal", Dr. Renee Dufault, former food investigator for the Food and Drug Administration, provides the startling answers. While at the FDA, Dr. Dufault discovered that mercury—a highly toxic metal—was contaminating the plumbing systems of many food manufacturing plants. Upon further examination, she discovered that the same mercury was also evident in a number of processed foods commonly sold in supermarkets. When Dr. Dufault revealed these disturbing findings to her superiors, she was told to stop her investigation. Her continued efforts to raise the issue always met with a dead end, so she chose to take early retirement from the FDA. Dr. Dufault then devoted her energy to making the public aware of the insidious dangers that contaminate our food. In 2010, she founded an organization of scientists to study the scope of this problem and has published numerous research articles on the topic with little fanfare. To expose what still seems to be a well-kept secret by the FDA, she has written "Unsafe at Any Meal" to provide consumers with the information they need to know . . . before it is too late.
