One of the world’s leading environmental and reproductive epidemiologists and a professor of environmental medicine and public health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City, Dr. Shanna H. Swan recently authored the groundbreaking book Count Down: How Our Modern World Is Threatening Sperm Counts, Altering Male and Female Reproductive Development, and Imperiling the Future of the Human Race (with the award-winning writer Stacey Colino). 

In this podcast, Dr. Swan shares empowering insights that can optimize influences on reproductive health, fertility, assisted reproductive efforts, and pregnancy outcomes. For example, you will hear how decreasing your exposures to endocrine-disrupting chemicals decreases risks in conceiving a child (including IVF outcomes), miscarriage, and birth defects. These EDCs are found in common household products, like plastic food containers, canned foods, and cleaning products. 

You will also hear how your reproductive health can signal your current overall health and life expectancy. Listen for Dr. Swan's recommended solutions to protect your "sixth vital sign."


The ideal time to eliminate chemicals, heavy metals, and EMFs from your home, diet, self-care, and technology is before you conceive. The earlier you start detoxing, the better.
