"Limiting Exposure to Environmental Toxins"

  community member   < less Cindy Klement

TONIGHT'S BOOK RELEASE AND LECTURE HAVE BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHERWhat are the health consequences of continued exposure to environmental chemicals throughout a lifetime, beginning in the womb? Scientists found an average of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborns including pesticides, flame retardants, consumer product ingredients, and industrial pollutants. And that's just the beginning. Exposure to contaminants continues thereafter on a daily basis creating a "body burden" or, simply put, an accumulated slurry of chemicals stored in our bodies.
What are these chemicals used for in industry?
How are we exposed?
In which bodily tissues are they stored and how do they affect our overall health?
Cindy Klement, MS, CNS, MCHES, is an integrative health specialist and adjunct professor at Eastern Michigan University. Klement will answer all of these questions, based on the research summarized for her new book, Your Body's Environmental Chemical Burden. The go-to toxin reference for the 21st Century!
