"The Effects of Organic Chemicals on Human Health" with David Carpenter, MD

Sign up for the mailing list and we will send you invitations to all upcoming webinars by clicking HERE. On Tuesday 6/2/15 join David Carpenter for a discussion on  The Effects of Organic Chemicals on Human Health.

Recent studies have implicated exposure to different chemicals with increases in risk of diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and diseases of endocrine organs. This presentation will review the evidence for these concerns and suggest ways in which one can take action to reduce exposure.
