This week’s show is part of a two-part special on toxics in consumer products.

Today, we will look at health and environmental risks of toxic ingredients in personal care products specifically, such as antibacterial soaps, hair dyes, and hair straighteners, and what individuals and organizations are doing to address the risks now.
