-- Frank Lipman MD, New York Times bestselling author of The New Health Rules.
Sophia Ruan Gushée has provided a great and useful book. It is a very readable but very scientifically accurate account of toxins in common products we all use almost every day, with appropriate information on how we can reduce our exposures to ourselves and especially to our children. The chemicals of concern are identified and their presence in everything from shampoos to foods to furniture is reported, including ways by which one can avoid excessive exposure.
-- David O. Carpenter MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment, a Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization, as well as professor of environmental health sciences at the University of Albany's School of Public Health.
As consumers, parents, occupants of a stressed planet, many of us seek information and strategies to reduce our exposure to toxins and those that are introduced into the environment. This book is a timely and invaluable resource for all. I urge you to keep it within reach and consult it often.
-- Tim Elgren PhD, dean of Arts and Science, Oberlin College; Dr. Eldren has taught courses in chemistry, biochemistry, and environmental studies.
A to Z of D-Toxing is a veritable encyclopedia regarding the nature of the substances with which we interact everyday - in our homes, our food, our drinks, our childrens' products, and much more. Turn to this book to learn valuable details about how you can keep your home, your body and your family educated and safe. Thank you Sophia, for creating this invaluable resource.
-- Elena Brower, author of Art of Attention, yoga and meditation teacher, and founder of Teach.yoga
Sophia Gushée is a leader and refreshing voice in the environmental health and wellness community. A to Z of D-Toxing is the new bible, setting a new standard for families wanting to take a deep dive into optimal wellbeing providing the very best for their children and protecting them from toxic exposures. Gushée uses an educational rather than punitive approach to disseminating the information in the book, A to Z of D-Toxing should be required reading for expectant and new parents.

I am truly impressed with Sophia Gushée's book and it is an unbelievable resource. In our quest for healthier lives through preventative medicine with diet and exercise, we have forgotten the potential hazards lurking in common products all around us. This well researched and scholarly work is one that I know I will turn to often in my clinical practice."
--Hooman Yaghoobzadeh, MD, at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian hospital. Dr. Yaghoobzadeh was selected from among 60,000 physicians to be one of New York magazine's 2017 Best Doctors.
"I usually approach lay writing about “detoxifying” with skepticism, expecting alarmist rhetoric. Sophia’s book, however, is just the opposite. It is fact-based, filled with common sense, and completely readable!
I absolutely recommend her work as a starting place for anyone trying to get healthy by getting a handle on the lifestyle and environmental factors that we can control in our busy lives."

Before having this reference guide I had little to no idea about the toxins in my home and how they impact my health. Now I feel much more in control of my environment and health.
We are thankful for this book. It's on our shelf, and is slowly accruing lines and lines of yellow highlighter.
