Joining me in today’s show is Dr. Gabriel Smolarz. He is the medical director of obesity in US Medical Affairs at Novo Nordisk, Inc. in Plainsboro NJ. He is also Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and a practicing endocrinologist in NJ. He is board-certified in Endocrinology as well as Obesity Medicine. In the show, we discuss:
Dr. Smolarz acknowledges that EDCs are everywhere, but the first step in reducing exposure is increasing awarness. Beyond that, though, he suggests:

Today’s Episode is brought to you by Life Extension…
…. I’ve learned a lot this year about the importance of Omega 3s. Maybe it’s because I’m a mom with a child playing sports or maybe it’s my growing interest as I age in heart and brain health. No matter the reason, I know two things.
I want to take an Omega 3 that offers a high enough dose to meet experts’ recommendations…
But I don’t want it to cause fish burps!
Yep. I said it. Fish burps. If you’ve tried Omega 3s before and found that to be a problem, I have good news for you. Life Extension’s Clearly EPA/DHA Omega 3 supplement is manufactured close to where the fish is sourced, which maximizes the freshness of their fish oil. I’ve been taking their Omega 3 for quite a while and I love it! To learn more about Life Extension’s Clearly EPA/DHA Omega 3, visit lifeextension.com/regan. As a fan of the show, you’ll get $5 off orders of $50 or more plus free shipping. Again, that’s lifeextension.com/regan.
