Podcast #2 Chemophobia: Why does it exist? Who is promoting it?

IWF Culture of Alarmism director Julie Gunlock was joined by the Dr. Julie Goodman, an expert in toxicology, epidemiology, and assessing human health risks from chemicals in consumer products and the environment. Dr. Goodman specializes in analyzing and interpreting epidemiology and toxicity data, apparent disease clusters, and chemical exposures. She currently works for Gradient, an environmental and risk sciences consulting firm. On the podcast, Gunlock and Goodman discussed what constitutes a safe level of chemical exposure and why this issue is so often badly reported by the mainstream media. Goodman also explained the latest studies on BPA safety and why many of the replacements for BPA do not have the safety record of BPA. Lastly, Goodman explained why there’s so much fear surrounding chemical use and how environmental groups often frighten women unnecessarily.
