How to keep your pets safe when buying toxic chemicals
I’m sure you’ve heard of the dangers of toxic chemicals, but if you haven’t, here’s a refresher.
Toxic chemicals are chemicals that contain dangerous levels of lead and other chemicals that are not naturally occurring in the environment, like coal or cement.
They are also very rare, so it’s easy to mistake them for something else.
These are chemicals we use to make things like household cleaners, pesticides, and household products.
We often think of toxic substances as dangerous, but we don’t necessarily understand the full spectrum of how toxic chemicals can affect our health.
In this episode, Recode’s Chris Mooney breaks down the chemicals we’ve been exposed to in our lives, and what we can do to avoid the chemicals that could cause harm to you or your family.
We also delve into the issues surrounding toxic chemicals in our communities, and the role that scientists are playing in determining what’s safe.
