Episode 115: Reducing Exposure to PFAs with Leah Segedie of Mamavation

Aaron Zober welcomes Leah Segedie of the blog Mamavation to The Appropriate Omnivore podcast. Leah runs a successful blog reaching millions of American women annually about the hormone-disrupting chemicals their families are exposed to and how reduce that exposure. Recently, Leah has been focusing perfluorochemicals or PFAs as they’re commonly referred to. They’re also known as forever chemicals because they build in up in your body from consuming products with them and remain in your body for several years. The first type of food Leah discovered often contains PFAs is ketchup. She then gets into other products were PFAs are found. This includes products used in food preparation or cooking, such as parchment paper and water filtration systems. Leah mentions what other types foods she’s looking at examining for PFAs. Plus with Halloween having recently taken place, Aaron and Leah share what they see as better candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters.
