Ep. 15: What's In the Stuff We Put In Us and On Us?: Ingredients with George Zaidan| Orbitals 305
We’re each a big mush of chemicals surrounded by chemicals, and figuring out which of these chemicals are helpful, versus harmful, is complicated.

I chat with him about some of what he found, and how he found it. Ingredients is on bookstore shelves now.
