Chronic Toxicity is defined as the development of adverse health effects as a result of long-term exposure to a toxin or stressor. We are all affected! Did you know babies in the U.S. are born with an estimated 287 chemicals already in their bodies? More than 80,000 chemicals are allowed on the U.S. Market without safety testing. In this lunch and learn we will identify common chemicals to avoid when purchasing cosmetics, personal and home cleaning products. Resources to help you evaluate your favorite brands will be shared. A “make and take” all-purpose cleaning spray station will also be offered for participants.
