WATCH Dr. Cohen's TEDx talk: 
"How to Protect your Kids from Toxic Chemicals"

In 2013, Dr. Cohen created The Smart Human LLC, a company designed to inform the public and private institutions about environmental health concerns and practical solutions to help minimize chemical exposures. Whether they are found in hospital neonatology intensive care units, pre-schools, or even in our own homes, the 90,000 chemicals that we are surrounded by, on a daily basis, may have serious health implications, (neuro-developmental, fertility, cancer, thyroid, autoimmune, and endocrine system risks). The Smart Human LLC. was created to help address these concerns, and to work together with institutions, communities and in-home, to create practical, cost-effective solutions.

Dr. Cohen's recent text, "Integrative Environmental Medicine", Oxford University Press, 2017 - is now available!

Dr. Cohen’s new book, "Non-Toxic: Living Healthy in a Chemical World", is slated for publication - September, 2020 (sign up for our newsletter to receive book and lecture updates at!)

​This book gives an anthropological perspective on where human beings have come from, describes the amazing protective abilities of the human body, discusses many of the chemicals we have created and how they get into and wreak havoc on the human body and then shares real-world, practical recommendations for staying healthy in this chemical laden environment. This book will empower people to make choices that are right for them, their friends and their family!
Everybody can become “the smart human,” if the appropriate information is presented to them – knowing the potential threats in your environment, will give you the option to choose better.
