Dr. Jenna Hua explains hormone disrupting chemicals and talks about how to optimize fertility through reducing toxins.
In episode #097, Dr. Jenna Hua shares her expertise as an environmental health scientist and dietitian. Jenna is passionate about the environment, public health and everything food. She holds a BS in Nutrition and an MPH and PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from UC Berkeley, and completed her postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford Medicine.
Frustrated by the lack of data for how harmful chemicals (like BPA, phthalates and parabens) from plastics and everyday products affect our health and clinical outcomes, and the absence of personalized approach to mitigate harmful chemical exposures, Jenna set out on a mission to change these.
She founded Million Marker, a health-tech startup dedicated to empowering everyone with the data and tools to determine how the products they use, the food they eat, and the water they drink negatively or positively influence their health. Million Marker helps people understand what chemicals are inside of them—and then provides simple solutions for quickly reducing harmful chemicals through mail-in test kits, lifestyle audits, product recommendations, and counseling.
We discuss common environmental exposures and hormone-disrupting chemicals – including how we become exposed to them and where they may be hiding. Jenna also shares tips to start a “low-tox” life and to optimize fertility.
Topics Discussed: environmental toxins, hormone-disrupting chemicals, reducing exposure to toxins, low-tox life, fertility optimization
