Guest: Dr. Susan Shaw, environmental health scientist, author and Dr. of Public Health is investigating toxic chemical exposure in firefighters. Decades of heavy use of brominated flame retardants (PBDEs), resulted in many toxic chemicals in our couches, carpets, baby strollers, plastic TV casings, computers, and foam insulation. In fact, Americans have 10-40 times higher levels in their bodies than Europeans or Asians. What does this mean when firefighters enter a burning house or business? When the soot permeates their skin through their gear? The research is still unfolding more evidence of danger. Co-host Dr. Peter Hofland, Joni live M-F at 2:00 p.m. ET on
