How many plastic food containers are in your kitchen right now? What about your lunch bag each day? It's a good bet you use soaps with fragrance. What about scented candles?

I talked with a renowned scientist at North Carolina State University who is doing extensive research into the health impacts of chemicals in products we use everyday – from containers to soaps to cosmetics!

Some of you have probably wondered about it. If you haven't, what she found will likely get you thinking! Especially when you hear some of the simple changes she made to protect her family, all because of the research results.

Wednesday on WRAL-TV at 6 p.m., find out which products she no longer uses and the number one item she says we should all immediately get rid of!
