It is hard to know who to trust in this day and age of information overload. The Internet provides many benefits but the downside is that just about everybody can make up a story and post it for the world to see. News media often sensationalizes stories and sometimes offers only a partial picture. Scientific literature has to be examined closely to see where the funding of the research came from. Stories can be slanted by the writer’s bias.
On this resource page I offer you links to information that I, as a healthcare professional, find to be helpful. They are sources that I trust and that is why I am sharing them with you. On your journey to learn about toxins in our environment I hope you too find them helpful.
I have included, in the tables below, different types of media so you can choose your preferred delivery method. I categorized them according to main content but some may overlap in the categories. I didn’t describe them for you. Just open the links and explore, learn something new!
