Avoidable toxic exposures pervade not just our outdoor environments but also our homes, bodies, and diet.
Research is linking everyday toxic exposures to many adverse health effects, including skin issues, asthma, allergies, cancer, developmental disorders (like attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and autism), fertility challenges, hormone disruption, obesity, precocious puberty, pregnancy issues, and more.

Only after she became a mother did she become aware of an overlooked influence on health: toxic exposures. Sophia invested nearly ten years identifying approaches for a practical nontoxic lifestyle. In A to Z of D-Toxing: The Ultimate Guide to Reducing Our Toxic Exposures, Sophia shares what she learned.
