My Favorite TED Talk: Toxic Baby

favorite TED talk

Hey, everyone!

I’m back to business after taking the weekend to myself. I loved relaxing this weekend and hanging out with my husband & puppy. We ran our usual errands on Saturday and on Sunday we took Roxie to her first dog park and she LOVED IT! I had plans to show snippets on my Instagram stories but I’m just not good at remembering to do that. Plus, I find that adding to IG stories or Snapchat just distracts me from being in the moment.

Anywho, today I wanted to start the week off on the right foot by sharing my favorite TED talk!

But first…Confession Time: I have many favorite TED talks so it’s really hard to just pick one. But, I chose this TED talk because I reference it nearly every day. It’s relevant, heartwarming & heartwrenching at the same time. I just love it!

I am such a documentary & TED talk junkie. I’m also a health & wellness junkie so most of the documentaries/TED talks that I watch are in the health/wellness world. My favorite TED talk has to be the Toxic Baby TED talk by Penelope Jagessar Chaffer. Penelope Chaffer, a filmmaker, created a film called Toxic Baby which explored the consequences & ramifications of environmental toxins on fetuses.  Her TED talk, under the same name as her film, describes quest to reveal the hidden dangers associated with the thousands of chemicals present in our environment, beauty products, and even our water supply.

Given all of the political changes that have been implemented since the inauguration of 45, I think that Mrs. Chaffer’s film & TED Talk are just as relevant today as they were in 2012.

After you’ve watched the talk, I’d love to chat about it with you in the comments section. Also, I’d love it if you’d leave your favorite documentaries and/or TED talks in the comments. I’m always looking to watch new ones!
