Did you know that chemical residues and toxins build up in our homes during winter, because we don't open the windows?

In Staying Alive in Toxic Times, A Seasonal Guide to Longlife Health medical doctor, qualified nutritionist and lecturer Dr Jenny Goodman, draws on her 20+ years experience to look at the common challenges impacting our modern lifestyles.

How is our 21st century environment making it harder for our bodies to absorb nutrients? Should we eat the same foods all year round? Are there certain nutrients we might be lacking in certain months?

Dr Goodman answers these questions, and also takes a deeper look at both indoor and outdoor environmental - and the toxins commonly found in household products and cosmetics.
