Quotes:

  • “You want to do most of what you can do on a consistent basis. It’s better to get it right than to get it fast.” – Dr. Cohen
  • “We have over 95,000 chemicals in just 200 years of our existence on everything from cosmetics to personal care products… not one of these chemicals is required for testing for safety or toxicity before they go into cosmetics. In the food industry there are incredibly low bars to set for safety, if there is even safety testing. It’s shocking. I think people would be completely confused that we are buying products that have no oversight from a safety standpoint.” – Dr. Cohen
  • “Don’t buy the junk you’re marketed to.” – Dr. Cohen
