Judi Vance (Biography)
Judi Vance is a speaker, author and publisher of the Cosmetic Health Report. She is an in-demand television and radio talk show guest. Her own hard-fought, emotionally harrowing journey back to health makes this book important reading for everyone interested in long-term good health. Her philosophy and story comes from experience. She is the country's leading crusader, demanding that cosmetics be brought out of their self-sanctioned immunity and reevaluated by way of long-term human studies. "Science doesn't have all the answers," says Vance. "There's no scientific agreement on what tests can correctly determine whether someone's immune or nervous system, or genes have been damaged. Nor is there a consensus on what constitutes a safe level of exposure. Reproductive, developmental and genetic damage is a non-threshold event and the only safe dose is zero. Until, we know the answers to these baffling questions, avoidance is probably our antidote."
