Environmental Home Makeover (Episode #106)

KQED Life: Fri, Jan 10, 2014 -- 1:00 PM

Many of us think of our homes as safe havens, but you may be surprised to learn how many toxins are hiding in common household products. In this episode of EcoSense for Living, we discover potentially harmful chemical ingredients in and around our homes and do a makeover inside our chemical-laden cabinets. Environmental experts including Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Dr. Andrew Weil, Ken Cook and Laurie David explain why harmful ingredients are in our products, how we can avoid or replace them, and what actions we can take to make sure we have a "Home, Safe Home."

Environmental Body Makeover (Episode #105)

KQED Life: Fri, Jan 3, 2014 -- 1:00 PM

In this episode, we explore makeovers that matter: getting rid of toxins in and on our bodies. Bestselling author, Dr. Andrew Weil, tells us how to keep healthy by making smart diet & nutrition choices and knowing what food labels really say. Director of Environmental Working Group, Ken Cook, shares some surprising tidbits about chemicals in everyday body products. A boy with Autism makes amazing progress with help from Shauna K. Young, PhD, through a manganese-free diet and elimination of food additives. Environmentalist Laurie David gives us her take on how the overuse of antibiotics on farm animals makes us more susceptible to disease and sickness, and what we can do about it.
