Your PFAS & Environmental Toxin Consultant

“Each of us has a unique pattern of toxin exposure. Deciphering and disrupting that pattern is imperative for good health.”

Angela Hind, M.D.

Angela C. Hind, MD practiced traditional internal medicine for 17 years.  After a toxic exposure led to health challenges in her own life, she became interested in environmental health and toxicology.  She is certified in Functional Medicine and focuses on the intersection of toxic exposures, diet, and chronic disease at the societal level.

Since 2015, Dr. Hind has been a PFAS health consultant for communities exposed to polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in their public water and private wells, including working with PFAS scientific experts to development medical monitoring programs for exposed populations. Dr. Hind also served as the medical consultant to the hundreds of workers injured by toxin exposures in the Kingston coal ash spill. This was one of largest environmental and human health disasters in U.S. history, exposing workers to toxic levels of radiation, arsenic, PM2.5, cadmium, chromium, and lead.  She also consults with communities suffering health injury from coal ash fill, aerial pesticide spraying, and arsenic contamination from leaking landfills.

She has over a decade of experience working with a wide range of toxin exposures and their effects on our health. In addition to her consulting work she served as the Chief Medical Officer for a 52-store chain of natural food stores, advising management and customers on pesticides and PFAS in produce, unhealthy additives in foods, and toxic ingredients in body care and beauty products.

Votary, M.D.’s Mission to Reduce PFAS & Toxin Exposure for Better Health

The widespread PFAS contamination of our drinking water, agricultural soil, and consumer products, in addition to the exposure of our firefighters, has increased the risk of cancer and other debilitating diseases that reduce the length and quality of lives for millions of people.  In combination with the other chemicals we are exposed to in our air, soil, and food, toxins are a leading cause of the current unprecedented epidemic of chronic illness in our country, with half of us having at least one chronic illness such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, ASD, infertility, asthma, or heart disease.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) notes that when drinking water regulations of PFAS are fully implemented they “will prevent tens of thousands of serious PFAS-attributable illnesses or deaths.”  However, these regulations will not be in effect for at least 6 years. And because PFAS remains in the blood for years after exposure, this means at least 10 more years of exposure for the more than 200 million people in the U.S. who are drinking tap or well water known to be contaminated with PFAS.

To protect our health it is imperative to know now, not in ten years, which of us has high levels of PFAS in our blood so that PFAS exposure can be stopped immediately, protecting our health and preventing disease.

“Each of us can be a votary for our own good health, and the health of our children”  -Angela Hind, M.D.
