Katie Boyle brings her experience in and passion for public health to her New England-based natural products manufacturing start-up, Boyle Public Health. The documented health risks associated with exposure to toxins in our homes' air, water, food and the products we buy and use on our bodies are the forces that usher Katie along in fulfilling her company's mission. Boyle Public Health manufactures natural products along with teaching consumers ways to reduce toxic exposures - and toxic stress - in the world around us. Why not create health-supportive environments instead? A Millisecond of 'Me' Time Foaming Hand Soap (TM) is found on the web at boylepublichealth.com and at natural food stores and grocers in Connecticut and New Hampshire. Pit Grit (TM) underarm scrub needs help to get off the ground!
