Going Green is Good for Your Health
Earth Day, April 22nd, is not just about recycling or climate change, it’s about better health. The pollution of our planet and how it affects our health have been well documented, including respiratory disease, heart disease, and even cancer. Harmful chemicals that include BPAs, toxins in cosmetics, and pesticides find their way into our environment and into our food and water sources. We are all literally sick of the status quo. On this week’s To Your Good Health Radio Show, Dr. Friedman talks with experts who can help you to live a little greener and be a little healthier and dispute Kermit the Frog’s famous saying, “it’s not easy being green.”
A pioneer and leader in the field of integrative medicine, Dr. Gary Kaplan founded and is the medical director of The Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine. He specializes in pain management, and says that toxins such as molds, food preservatives and other harmful chemical agents have been wreaking havoc on our bodies, and can manifest as many different diseases and conditions. He joins the show to educate us on what we can do to protect ourselves from becoming sick with toxicity.
