Is Your Makeup Killing You? Decoding Cosmetic Scare Stories

Tue, 2014-03-18 23:36

You’ve seen the stories: There’s Lead in Your Lipstick! Pthalates in Your Shampoo! Parabens in Everything!

 

Our cosmetics are awash in toxic chemicals, or so it seems. Are we in imminent danger? Should we throw them all out and go au naturelle? Or slather away in a fool’s paradise, only to develop cancer – or worse, pass on our toxic habits to our children as birth defects? Why are there toxins in our products at all? And if these toxins are so dangerous, why isn’t anything being done?

Dr. Joe in Grenada!

Thu, 2014-02-20 07:42
Had the pleasure tonight of meeting with McGill graduates who are now studying medicine at St. Georges University in Grenada. Was really, really proud of them! St. Georges students were invited to field questions from a group of advisors and profs from about 17 universities in Canada and the US. More McGill grads showed up than from any other school and they answered all questions with great aplomb. Everyone was greatly impressed. These students are energetic, bright and dedicated.

More Oz Folly

Mon, 2014-01-27 08:48

Dr. Oz has absolutely gone haywire. In pushing the "alkaline" diet he takes a piece of kidney and pours acid on it to show how it disintegrates and infers this is happening in the body. This is insane. The pH of the blood is maintained at about 7.35 no matter what the diet. Oz has lost all perspective and is falling deeper and deeper into the abyss of quackery.
