Dr. Ben begins by sharing the subject of today’s show – chemical toxicity.

3:20 – Dr. Ben gives some statistics surrounding men’s fertility and toxins found in the umbilical cord of new born babies.  These toxins have been found to be endocrine disrupters and are present in most of the personal care products used today.

7:33 – Dr. Ben welcomes David to the show and asks him to share a bit of his story.

9:35 – Dr. Ben shares some information from Dr. Mercola’s newsletter about uterine cancer being linked to a hair straitening product.

10:28 – David shares what prompted him to start looking in to these things before chemical toxicity in hair products was even widely known, back in the 90s.  He also discusses some of the beginnings of building the company and products from the ground up.

14:00 – David highlights the history of the chemicals in conventional shampoos.  This is vastly different from what is in his products, so he tells listeners how his products are different and what to expect when using them.

16:48 – Dr. Ben chimes in with the importance of our microbiome and how beauty products affect the microbiome of the skin.  He goes on to commend David for hearing the truth and then doing the righteous thing by creating a healthy line that adheres to the highest standards.

19:43 – David gives some details on European standards regarding personal products. He moves on to a story of his grandparents that he remembers as a young kid.  They were living organically before they even knew what that was.  They both lived in to their 90s.

David will be at the Merc Friday, November 18th from 9:00-5:00 to share information on his products.

32:28 – Dr. Ben brings up a study about breast cancer and parabens, a common toxin in conventional products.  He discusses the basics of how these chemicals affect the endocrine system.
