Dr. Mike Moreno’s launches his exciting new podcast, Wellness, Inc., with breaking news about everyday household products and how they could negatively impact your health.
In this shocking episode, Dr. Mike welcomes Dr. Tod Cooperman, a revered physician and founder of ConsumerLab.com , an Internet publisher of unbiased research on health and wellness products. The two discuss surprising findings about every day household items that are marketed as healthy, but can be toxic.
ConsumerLab recently published their finding that some water filters inserted in pitchers actually increase micro-particles of plastic in drinking water! That pitcher with a filter you bought to keep dangerous particles out of drinking water may actually add danger in. We were blown away says, Dr. Cooperman. And, that’s just one of the scary recent results.
Dr. Mike asks about a recent red flag that was raised in ConsumerLabs: because of Covid-19 consumers are increasingly buying canned fish. Dr. Mike says there are dangers if mercury and arsenic levels are high in these products, particularly to pregnant women. The research found that there can be a range of these toxins in brands. Watch out, says Dr. Cooperman.
Founded 21 years ago ConsumerLab is an independent review platform with ratings for thousands of wellness products. In 2000, ConsumerLab.com generated media attention when it’s testing of ginseng products revealed substantial pesticide contamination in many products. Dr. Mike says it’s a Godsend for anyone who has ever looked at a supplement pill or a bottle of oil – even CBD -- and wondered if the claims on the label were true.
Dr. Cooperman and ConsumerLab is an impeccable source for doctors, nutritionists, and consumers, as well as journalists and public officials. He has spoken in front of numerous government committees and is regularly interviewed on the subject.
In this episode, you can learn more about ConsumerLab. Dr. Mike thinks a year’s subscription to the service for under $50 is a deal but points out there is plenty of free information too.
