On tonight’s show, Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy learn all about the the dangers of toxins in everyday products like cosmetics and plastics from award winning investigative reporter Mark Schapiro.
Mark has been investigating environmental and international issues for over 20 years. His work has been featured in: Harper’s, The Nations, NOW with Bill Moyers, FRONTLINE and NPR.
In 2007 he wrote Exposed, a book that compares the proactive governmental policies of the European Union when it comes to environment, safety and health to the the more reactive policies of the US.
Mark explained that in the United States their are no government regulators checking to see if there are any toxins in products such as cosmetics and plastics. In Europe that is not the case. The European Union have oversight over cosmetics and they have compiled a list of dangerous ingredients that are not allowed in cosmetics. Sadly in the US cosmetics sold here are filled with carcinogens that are banned in Europe.
