Friday: Chat live with UC researchers on how environment, diet and social experiences affect health

Ask questions live to UC researchers as they discuss invisible exposures that are getting underneath you — and your children’s — skin. Learn about the science that suggests how toxicants such as cosmetics, chemicals, pesticides, and foods, along with mind states such as stress can change your body, metabolism, weight and health. Join the Facebook Stream from 12:30–12:50 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, to have your questions answered!

The panelists are:

  • Tracey Woodruff, PhD, UCSF. How chemical exposures in pregnant women can affect the next generation.
  • Kimberly Harley, PhD, UC Berkeley. Youth exposures to toxic endocrine disrupting chemicals through beauty and hair products.
  • Martyn Smith, PhD, UC Berkeley. Defining the exposome and how diet and environmental exposures impact cancers and child health.
  • Candice Price, PhD, UC Davis. How diets high in sugar and soda are toxics influencing metabolic disease and obesity.
