These health chats are put on by the Cleveland Clinic. The Cleveland Clinic is combining Western medicine with other modalities in their Center for Integrative Medicine and Wellness Institute. Two (free) talks that may be of interest here are:

Environmental Toxins and Your Health

Environmental toxins are all around us. From the food we eat and water we drink to the products to the energy we consume. Toxins have been found in beauty products, household cleaners, carpets, furniture, mattresses, and even house dust. Being surrounded by chemicals on a daily basis can have some harmful effects on your health. Take this opportunity to join us as our expert discusses different environmental toxins, their effect on the body and how to avoid them.
