These environmental concerns cover breast milk, food additives, farm and yard herbicides and pesticides, city and well water, food containers, and radiofrequency. Many studies reveal that exposure to chemicals and radiation in our everyday environment may increase risk for chronic diseases, asthma, autism, autoimmunity, type 2 diabetes, multiple cancers, etc. Over 87,000 chemicals are now commercially available in the U.S., almost all of which have not been tested for safety. The risk may be particularly high in children and fetuses with developing brains and bodies.
