. . . because health is influenced by what's happening inside your body AND around it.
5 things to REMOVE from your life
⚠️Non-stick pans - known to contain trace amounts of a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), which has been shown to cause cancer. 📍Swap for cast iron pans
⚠️White side dishes - potatoes, noodles, rice and bread are typical sides served with meals and they tend to cause high blood sugar, putting you at risk for heart disease. 📍Try adding flavor and spice with sides like honey, balsamic brussel sprouts, spicy collard greens, or garlic broccoli.
⚠️Air fresheners & dryer sheets also known to contain phthalates (linked to reproductive problems), benzene, & formaldehyde (cancer causing chemicals). 📍Use essential oil diffusers/ spritz the house with a spray bottle of water & a few drops of oil. Exchange your dryer sheets for wool dryer balls.
⚠️Plastic food containers - many are made from phthalates which are endocrine disruptors (endocrine disruptions are associated with infertility and some cancers). 📍Opt for glass storage containers - available at @target and @costco
