Author and self-proclaimed father of biohacking, Dave Asprey, recently posted a video on his Instagram page. The video showed a person explaining how the high levels of Atrazine in water have feminized male frogs. Additionally, he wrote in the caption, “Your body has more water than anything else in it. Perhaps that water ought not to have potent feminizing endocrine disruptors.”

He also shed light on the ills of chemical poisoning by major companies.

This was not Ali’s first time passionately talking for a cause. In fact, she recently opened up about the dangers of ‘mock meat’. Notably, ‘mock meat’ is a plant-based substitute for actual meat. And is used to mimic the texture and flavor of actual meat.

Ali urged people to avoid consuming mock meat. Additionally, talking about a study on the popular mock meat brand, ‘Beyond Meat’, she said, “This is really processed. And there’s a lot of sodium in it. I don’t recognize some of these ingredients.”

Meanwhile, her statement came at a time when former champ, Mike Tyson, opened up about leaving veganism.
