How to Protect Ourselves from Toxic Chemicals
Sunday, October 25 @ 3 PM via Zoom
Presenter: Aly Cohen, MD, Integrative Rheumatology Associates, Princeton, NJ,

There is no question that our environment has changed dramatically over the past few decades. The influx of thousands of toxic chemicals that seep into every aspect of our lives wreaking havoc on our bodies can seem daunting, but research now shows that by making simple changes, we can dramatically reduce exposures to many harmful chemicals that we eat, breathe, and lather on our skin. Dr. Cohen talks about what we can do to protect ourselves and our families from environmental toxins.
