Join Sanjay Gupta MD for his premiere, “Toxic America” on June 2 & 3rd at 8pm ET on CNN! This 2 Night Special Investigation into the toxins we are exposed to each and every day – in the air, in common household products and in our homes. How can we minimize our exposure to potentially harmful chemicals?

The 2nd night of this illuminating special, “Toxic Childhood” focuses on the hidden effects of toxins on our babies and children, as early as the womb!

It can be overwhelming for parents trying to limit the exposure their families have to such chemicals through the products used daily in the home. Making educated choices is paramount but there is so much to know and understand! What are phthalates, why is Bisphenol-A considered dangerous, is painting a room with low VOC paint worth the extra expense…the questions go on and on. Making a conscious effort to “go green” is well worth it, but again, if babies are now entering the world with more than 200 dangerous chemicals already found in their blood, are we too late?

Toxic America ” will be addressing frightening facts, such as:

  • Exposure to car and truck exhaust in the womb has been shown to result in lower IQ at age five
  • Babies enter the world with more than 200 dangerous chemicals in their blood, including flame retardants, dioxins, substances in non-stick coatings like Teflon and hormone-like compounds found in plastic.
  • Out of the 80,000 chemicals in use in the United States, the EPA has only tested about 200 and only banned five.

Don’t forget to tune in on June 2 & 3 at 8 pm ET to watch “Toxic America.”
