Did you know that the American Cancer Society estimated that there were going to be 1.9 million new cancer cases diagnosed in the year 2021? There is growing evidence around less-publicized chemical exposures that have been linked to certain cancers such as breast cancer. So what are these chemical exposures that we encounter every day, and what can we do to reduce our exposure? Listen to this powerful conversation with Dr. Aly Cohen, author of Non-Toxic: Guide to Living Healthy in a Chemical World, as she provides key take-home tips that can help improve your health.
