The Anti-Aging Problem

The Anti-Aging Problem

By Stephanie Seferian

It can often feel in our culture as though women aren’t allowed to age. If we do? The patriarchy will (gasp!) deem us irrelevant.  Enter countless off-the-shelf products, monthly treatments, and medical procedures that claim to turn back the clock, albeit temporarily. And while hair dyeing, teeth whitening, and more are wildly popular amongst women (and men!) forty-plus, such habits often come with excessive exposure to cancer-causing agents and hormone disruptors. On today's show Sophia Ruan Gushee encourages us to diversify our risks as we consider which anti-aging products to try.   Here's a preview: [6:00] "I never worried about toxins and I turned out fine." This logic is flawed, and here's why [11:00] Don't go straight to the permanent hair dye! And other hair dyeing considerations  [17:00] Teeth no longer pearly white? Beware of the heavy metals  [24:00] Take an inside-out approach (not a 10 step regimen) to glowing, radiant skin    Related episodes:  Episode #194: Safer Nail Polish Episode #203: 5 Non-Toxic Hair Dye Solutions * Have you left this show an Apple Podcasts review yet?
