Dr. Sarah Evans Featured on Health Daily article “Unhealthy Phthalate Chemicals Found in Restaurant Food”

Dr. Sarah Evans weighs in on a recent study that showed higher levels of phthalates in people who dined out more often. In the Health Daily article, Dr. Evans emphasized that eating more home-cooked meals could help limit phthalate exposure– but people need to be mindful of the foods they choose.That’s because phthalates can lurk in the processed, packaged foods sold at grocery stores, too. “The best way to reduce exposure is to eat whole, fresh foods at home as often as possible,” said Evans, who was not involved in the study. “Phthalates have been shown to accumulate in high-fat foods, so limiting consumption of those items may be effective at reducing exposure.” To read the full Health Daily article click here.
