Deirdre_approved_new_photo_11-6_FinalDear friends, 
As spring approaches and the days grow longer, we're reminded of renewal in nature and ourselves. In looking at how best to take care of both, this issue features an article on fish and fish oil from our medical advisor, Ben Kligler, MD, who explores the latest science on how to leverage this natural resource for optimal health. 
For many of us, spring is also a time to refresh our personal care routine and with that comes news on legislation in New York State to remove the chemical 1,4 Dioxane from these products. For more on what this means for your favorite go-to's - and how to ensure you're getting safer products, see our guide in this issue. 
As always, find spring-fresh recipes to make the most of seasonal produce. Whether it's switching to safer products or more sustainable food - or both - we invite you to join us in choosing one way to celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd. Thank you for joining us in pursuing a healthier planet! 
Wishing you health and wellness,
