Can Dry Cleaning Really Be Green?

By Dr. Marisa Weiss on March 20th, 2014 Tags: , , , ,

What happens to clothes at the dry cleaners was always a bit of a mystery to me. I know there’s some sort of chemical process going on — how else could everything get so clean without falling apart? But while I’m careful about the products I use when I wash clothes at home and I’m concerned about dry cleaning chemicals, I haven’t asked my dry…

What Meat and Egg Labels Really Mean

By Dr. Marisa Weiss on January 15th, 2014 Tags: , ,

Anyone who’s read even one of my Think Pink, Live Green columns knows that I am passionate about food and making sure that I eat the healthiest, most nutritious food I can afford. But sometimes when I’m deciding what to buy, I get confused by all the “natural,” “lean,” “responsibly raised,” and other stickers trying to grab my attention on meat and egg products. Since…

If you’re interested in eating healthy, tasty food, but don’t have a fortune to spend, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has put together a great new guide that will help you eat well and save money.

But what if your local store carries little or no organic produce and there’s no farmers’ market close by?…

Eating Locally, Eating Fresh

By Dr. Marisa Weiss on May 16th, 2012 Tags: , , ,

What does eating local mean? To some people, it means eating food that’s traveled fewer than 100 miles from the farm to your fork. That’s because moving food long distances can mean more fuel is used, which means a larger carbon footprint, which affects the environment outside our bodies. Food in the United States travels an average of 1,500 miles to get to a grocery…

Popcorn: Food for Thought

By Dr. Marisa Weiss on February 22nd, 2012 Tags: , , ,

What’s not to love about popcorn? It’s easy to make, filling, and for me, the perfect nibble during a night in with my favorite movie. On its own, popcorn is a great snack. It’s naturally high in fiber, low in calories, contains no sodium and is fat-free. But the ways in which it is grown or prepared can be cause for concern. So before you…

My Story on Click4Breastcancer.org
