071 | Sicker Fatter Poorer | with Dr. Leonardo Trasande
Today’s guest is Dr. Leonardo Trasande, and he is an internationally renowned leader in children’s environmental health, and an associate professor at NYU. He is also the author of my new favorite book, Sicker Fatter Poorer.
I have been dying to share this episode with you! In his amazing book, Dr. Trasande clearly walks through how we are exposed to chemicals everyday: in our food, products, and environment. In this episode, we talk through the book step-by-step, eliminating the effects of the chemicals we are exposed to, how chemical exposure can alter our DNA, and so much more. This is one episode you don’t want to miss!
