  • Bioaccumulation of toxins – “slow poisoning”
  • 1998 1.2 billion lbs of toxins were dumped into our environment
  • Plastics leeching chemicals like BPA
  • Our current healthcare system is designed for emergent care, not chronic degenerative diseases
  • Pesticides account for about 70% of the endocrine damage in our society, causes massive changes in our hormonal balance
  • Pesticides mimic your hormones, thereby creating abnormal physiology

  1. Great podcast, Dr. Mike! I’m actually listening to this with my mom right now, and I’ll also share this with some friends who are interested in wellness!

    BTW: Having those “Show Notes” are a great idea! It allows us to see what each show is about before listening. It would also be cool to denote which part of the podcast (ex 1:34 or 2:12) each subject is being talked about so we can rewind and replay when we’re taking notes. THANKS FOR PRODUCING THIS!
