The world is a wild ride of chemicals that industries and businesses tell you are toxic (when they are really pretty benign) or harmless (when they can be quite hazardous). This class is designed to help answer many of these questions, from foodstuffs to cosmetics, cleaners to waste products. Attendees are asked to bring empty containers with labels or copies of the labels they are concerned about. J. S. Reed, PhD, holds multiple degrees ranging from biochemistry to psychology. As a licensed clinician, he served as an on-site toxicology referral for a regional hospital.
