Dr. Jay has been researching these for years and even published a book on the topic. So he’s a top expert that can explain where these harmful chemicals are hiding, why they’re so dangerous, and what you can do to eliminate them from your life.
On top of diving into this topic on a deeper level, Dr. Jay and Dr. Anthony Gustin also veer off into other important ones like DNA testing, water filtration, avoiding grains and high-carb diets, epigenetics, and intermittent fasting.
