2FA protects you

If you are using two-factor authentication (2FA), even if a hacker has your password, your information is probably safe.

The book looks at the ways that everyday things may be making people sick and shows how they can protect themselves by making wiser, healthier choices.

It examines the way products are made and regulated, the way synthetic chemicals enter bodies and the latest research about what this chemical “body burden” may be doing to people’s health. It looks at shopping habits, drinking water and lawn care, and ponders the ways advertising and marketing have blinded people to problems.

All Green Liaisons are encouraged to attend the presentation, which is also open to the general public. Drinks and light refreshments will be available.
