Hidden Toxins In Your Dog's Natural Food: How to Avoid Sneaky Industry Practices That Put Your Dog at Risk
There are toxins in pet foods that government regulators and the pet food industry have never told you about. In this session, Larry will share Health Research Institute’s test results for weed killers, plasticizers, pentobarbital and more. Results vary dramatically among different types of foods and in the urine of dogs tested by HRI. They provide clear choices in what to feed our animal companions and ourselves.
Health Research Institute (HRI) is an independent, internationally accredited, non-profit laboratory. HRI uses testing to shed light on questions of human and animal health.
Larry Bohlen is a former NASA engineer. Today he brings his scientific expertise to food, health and environment issues. Larry’s experience in food and agriculture started with his investigation of contamination of the food supply by an illegal variety of GMO corn.
Most recently, Larry co-founded Health Research Institute, a non-profit, independent laboratory helping to creating more transparency in food and agriculture. HRI’s priorities include studies on human and pet exposure to the herbicide glyphosate. The lab’s work has been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, and has been cited numerously in global media.
Larry lives in Baltimore with his wife Susan and their three dogs Joonie, Ella and Shadow.
