A Toxic Lexicon

A Toxic Lexicon

Do you know the difference between a toxin and a toxicant?
It turns out that many of us use these terms interchangeably. But there is a difference between a toxin and a toxicant—a big difference! Although popular usage may have us thinking that a toxin and a toxicant are the same, it’s essential for Femme Toxic readers know their meanings.

Why? In our work, we talk about the effects of toxic substances and how they affect your body and your health. We want you to be well-informed!
Who better to helps us explain this difference than two former BCAM and Femme Toxic public health interns, Amy Elefson and Natalie Martin.

Is it really possible to clean your hair naturally?

We asked Dipti Karmakar, a biomedical researcher, to share her scientific expertise on the potentially harmful chemicals in many store brand shampoos. Read below to learn how better living through chemistry can be simple and lead to healthier hair.
