It’s Danger Week at BTR!
On today’s Third Eye Weekly, we bring you an extra special extended episode with four expert guests chiming in on hidden dangers in our health and food system.
First up, Darell Rogers of the Alliance for Natural Health USA, Jonathan Emord, lead attorney with Emord & Assoc. join us to talk about how regulatory policies and procedures at the FDA only stand to benefit big phrama and factory farms while putting public health at risk.
You can check out the film, War on Health, featuring Mr. Emord below:
And later, Dr. Heather Patisaul of North Carolina University and Dr. Michael Hansen of the Consumer’s Union join us to talk about the unseen dangers of endocrine disruptors, and their ubiquity in the marketplace.
Also, during the introduction to today’s program, we refer to a recent story about a N.Y. state legislature bill that would ban a dietary supplement because of its use of a potentially dangerous stimulant, DMAA. Here’s more details on that story, as well as the May, 2012 Forbes Magazine piece we refer to on the fight over advertising, the FDA, and dietary supplements.
