Dr. Rob Brown uses an EMF meter to measure electromagnetic radiation from a microwave. Brown will be the featured speaker at the AAUW’s Feb. 14, 2019, meeting in Murrysville.

A Murrysville doctor will discuss eliminating household toxins for healthier living at the next American Association of University Women meeting, set for Feb. 14 in Murrysville.

Dr. Rob Brown is the author of “Toxic Home, Conscious Home.” He wrote the book after a series of nosebleeds, which he ultimately traced to volatile organic compounds in the paint he was using to redo a room in his home. The discovery led him to look more deeply into the products he uses every day.

“My mother was very health-conscious about food and healthy living, and it really led me to be very aware of how I feel in the presence of different things in my environment,” he previously told the Tribune-Review.

Brown’s formal medical education began at the University of Miami School of Medicine. He completed a residency training program in diagnostic radiology in Pittsburgh and his fellowship training at the University of California, San Diego in musculoskeletal radiology.

He will be the featured speaker at the Murrysville AAUW’s Feb. 14 meeting, set for 9:30 a.m. at the Murrysville Community Library, 4100 Sardis Road.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
