Several podcast interviews, including Dr. Gottfried, mention the impact of environmental toxins on all aspects of health (endorcrine, gut, brain, etc). I was wondering what evidence there is for specific types of toxins in our environment for increasing risk for autoimmune disorders, endocrine, reproductive, cancers, etc. I have tried to limit these as much as possible in our family's cleaning supplies, body products, food, materials, etc., but I also feel there's only so much I can do. At the same time, I hear more and more about exposures to these "poisons" and I worry about future generations AND I also don't want to develop health anxiety. What evidence is there and what are your general guidelines and suggestions for limiting?
I ask because I’m in this situation now and would like to choose a design that covers as much as possible from the start. So far, I plan on installing a dry sauna, cold plunge, and some bars to hang from in several spots around the house. I’m curious what you would add to this. Is it important to choose non-VOC materials, etc. too? Thanks for your input!
