She points at the spot. He digs. Then she plants. It's a system that has everything coming up roses. With that I send it back to you all in the studio. Riva does that without you asking, right? And so much more, robin. Lara, thank you. Now to our "Gma" cover story, a new story finds many cosmetics sold in the U.S. And Canada contain hidden toxic chemicals. Two senators introduced a bill that would ban these products. Dr. Whitney bow joins us now to tell us more. What is the concern here? These chemicals, these researchers studied over 200 different cosmetics. They specifically looked for this chemical. They're man made products added to cosmetics. You can find them in mascara, long-wear lipstick. They resist moisture and add to the staying power of a cosmetic. The same properties that make them so desirable are what causes concern when it comes to our bodies and comes to the environment because, robin, this class of chemicals, they don't break down. They've been nicknamed forever chemicals because they accumulate in our tissues, persist in our environment. The researchers found concerning leveling of these compounds in foundations, lip products, eye products, mascara. A number of these products don't list these ingredients in the label. What are the health concerns associated with this? Don't know how much is absorbed through the skin and can enter the blood stream. The fda hasn't set a limit when it comes to safety. Any time you apply an ingredient close to the eyes or on the lips, there's an increased risk of the absorption. They're made up of mucous membranes that more readily absorb ingredients. When you apply a product to your lips, think about it, you're licking your lips throughout the day. You're potentially ingesting some of those ingredients. The chemicals are in our soil, getting into our water supply. We're ingesting and coming into contact with these chemicals potentially throughout our day and there are concerning studies linking this class of compounds to certain types of cancers, thyroid disease, liver toxicity and reproductive issues. Doctor, as you said, manufacturers are not required to put this on the label. I know you're always stressing read the label. If it's not on there, what can we do to product ourselves? So knowledge is power. I'm always telling my patients pick up the product, turn it around, read the ingredient list. If there is an ingredient that starts with perflor that's a red flag. An extra added precaution might be to limit your use of cosmetics that claim to be water proof or long wear or long lasting. We have to keep that in mind. As always, doctor, thank you so much. Have a great day. For more, head to our Instagram page @goodmorningamerica. This morning we're meeting the mom and dietician trying to get kids to eat more foods. For more on this erielle reshef. That mom of two is trying to get kids to eat more foods, and she says it doesn't have to break the bank. Cooking for kids can take creativity. Getting them to eat, that's another story. It's a struggle mom of two Jennifer Anderson knows all too well. My first son fell off the growth chart when he was 6 months old. I was in the pediatrician's office thinking I'm a dietician. How does this happen to a dietician? Reporter: Jennifer dove into research and created kids eat in color. Where she gives her 1.3 million followers tips. You may be feeding your child only fast food.

Jennifer teaming up with experts to develop a resource to feed a family of four for $500 a month or less. The plan including step by step recipes, shopping lists and a wide variety of food cultures. We don't believe you have to eat poorly on a budget. You have to be careful and creative, but the food can be flavorful, delicious. Reporter: Jennifer recommends serving child micro portions which stretch your food budgets. That's when you serve your child a small amount of food and let them keep asking for more until they're full. Reporter: Learning to cook basics means big savings.

Conventionally grown foods are less expensive and you'll get more variety and more food for your dollar. Reporter: Satisfying meals and savings for your family. Picky eating is not a character defect. There's many reasons why kids avoid certain foods. It's important not to force them to clean their plates.

We're always on at or download the free ABC 7 ny app. We play music during the break. For some reason we were talking about mixed tapes. You're telling your age when you know about mixed Back on "Gma," it's time for our June book club pick, "The other black girl" by zakira Dalila Harris. I had the opportunity to speak with the young author about her "New York Times" best seller, one of the hottest books of the summer. Break out author zakira Dalila Harris is reriveting readers. How does it feel? It feels surreal. I wanted to write since I was 5 or 6 years old. Reporter: The novel tells the story of 26-year-old editorial assistant Nella who is forced to navigate being the only black employee in the office. She got used to being around white people for most of her life. Then hazel the new girl who comes to work, born and bred in Harlem, has been around black people all her life. Has really cool dread locks. When hazel comes into this space, she has this assumption we got into this white world Reporter: The book tackles micro aggressions and workplace politics. I wrote this book for black women who have been in those workplaces, but anyone who has been an "Other" in those types of spaces. What it's like to go through certain things on your own. There was a poignant line, you wrote it would be great to have another black girl working at Wagner, but Nella was hesitant to do a celebratory electric slide sequence. Over the last two years, the only people hired were very specific people who came from a very specific box. Yes. There's the burden, feeling like you have to speak for all black people in the world when you're the only one which is it a self-imposed burden versus one that people ask for you to do. How much of you is Nella? So much. Maybe too much. Reporter: Zakira used her own experiences, including hair. We're in the sunny salon in Harlem because hair is almost a character itself in your book. Yeah. I grew up like Nella, the main character, in very white spaces in Connecticut. For most of my young life I wanted straight hair like my young friends. I wanted to explore how hair is supposed to bring them together. You're getting rave reviews, brilliant, twisty, highly relevant. What impact are you hoping to have? I want readers to come away with another example of what blackness can be, what black women can be. Reporter: Now being adapted into a hulu series co-written with Rashida Jones, zakira says it's a cross pattern. Your hope is when you close the book you'll want to throw it against the wall and have a conversation. Yes. What do you want that conversation to be? I want readers to talk about diversity and workplaces an how to make those spaces more diverse and how to retain the diversity and make it an environment where people can be themselves. I want it to be better for black women, for people of color, any marginalized groups not represented way they they should in the workplaces. Anyone whoever felt they were the only -- not felt that way, but they were. If you didn't know it, you wouldn't tell this is her debut novel. She weaved in so many different timelines which is complex. Just 28 years old. She's also old school. Her first draft written by hand. I love that. Written by hand. I think we have some of her work you saw that she did by hand right there. Isn't that amazing? Incredible. So many folks can relate to that story. She said she wrote it for black women, a lot of people in the office have been in that you make it. I'm the only one that looks like me. Workplace politics. And a cross between "Get out" and "Devil wears Prada," I'm in. Be sure to read along on our gram. Coming up next, "The hand Hi, I'm Dr. Dave Chokshi, your health commissioner. I'm Helen Arteaga Landaverde, Ecuadorian and New Yorker, and the proud CEO of New York City Health and Hospitals, Elmhurst. Hi, I'm Dr. Bookhardt-murray, Chief Medical Officer at Morris Heights Health Center. Hi, I'm Dr. Stella Safo, an HIV primary care physician at Mount Sinai Health System. As a health care provider and a New Yorker, we are daily asked questions about the covid-19 vaccines by our friends, families, and patients. I get asked - why did you choose to get vaccinated? And I tell them - I did it honestly to feel free... Free to hug my mom, free to hug my sister, free to hug my children and my neighbors, even able to give my mother-in-law a big kiss. Even though she doesn't want one. My patients say to me - I hear the vaccines have bad side effects. Will I get any side effects from the covid-19 vaccines? I tell them some people do get side effects. The most common side effects are pain, redness and swelling in the arm where the shot was given. Some people may get a headache, muscle pain, nausea, or feel really tired. My patients ask me - will I need a booster shot after I get a covid-19 vaccine? I tell them we may need to get booster shots in the future as we do not yet know how long protection from the vaccines lasts. However, it is very important to get vaccinated because we do know the authorized vaccines are very effective at preventing severe covid-19 and will protect you right now. All of the authorized vaccines are safe, free and decrease the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death due to covid-19. So we urge you... To learn more about the vaccines and make an appointment or walk in to get yours. Thank you. Diana's brother's new mission. An expedition to find a legendary ship wreck.

You don't know what's under the That was a very successful dive. It's incredible. We found a piece of ship wreck. Reporter: One more analysis needs to be done to confirm it's the white ship. It was beyond my wildest dream. When the drivers said this is what they had seen, the right configuration of wooden nails and copper and iron. It's incredible. Reporter: The team already has more explorations planned to figure out more about this discovery. The moment those divers came above the surface and said we found a ship wreck it was so cool. Just like lord Spencer said, it's about bringing history back to life. We can feel your excitement, Maggie. It's precious. Thank you. Thank you for bringing that to us. What adventure. Take care. Let's go The season finale of the Emmy award winning show "The handmaid's tale," the cast calling it the most satisfying finale. We have star Joe feinnes to talk about it. Joe, good morning. I don't know if you heard earlier, but I'm a mega, super fan. I feel like I should call you commander or Fred. You look different without your I'm curious what it's been like for you to take on such a role. I mean, I love to hate you, and how fans react to you. Well, you should love to hate me, not me per se, but certainly the character. He's despicable and it's about time that he met his demise. You know, Fred hides behind mahogany desks and studies and powerful double breasted suits and big beards. Much like gilead he's a warning to us all about the dangers of this rule and how precious our democracy is. I think the fans will be supremely rewarded by the season finale. I applauded the great finale which really delivers. You are so phenomenal throughout this. I'll be watching later today. I have a watch party planned for later this afternoon. We have a clip from the finale. We can get a sneak peek. This is June, played by Elisabeth moss, pays you her former commander a visit. Blessed evening, June. May I call you June? That is my name. Yes, it is. Always was my name actually. Of course. Well then, June, why have you come? I have been cheering along with Elisabeth moss' character June throughout the entire season. She's been doing a lot of work behind the scenes. What has it been like to be directed by her? Well, I mean, lizzy is an extraordinary actor. She's luminous and gifted beyond belief. As a producer from day one, along with Bruce Miller, this year she delivered two for me out of her three extraordinary stand-out episodes as director. To be directed by her was a joy. She knows the materialnside out. She's got a gift of communicating with actors. That would come naturally to her. Her eye as a director is extraordinary. She has this gift of moving the camera in a very lean, fat free way. It's economic and gets to the heart of the narrative. She's extraordinary and it adds to an amazing season. She's extraordinary. You're extraordinary. The entire cast is. You really -- it's an immerse if experience. Are you ready to take a break from a drama like this? Maybe dabble in some comedy? You know what, as soon as I wrap, the first thing I do is run to the trailer and shave off the beard that takes me months to get on, but seconds to get off, so I can get rid of the residue of Fred, the creepy man he is. This is a shout out to Disney. Give me a cheesy comedy. No more villains. A cheesy comedy. You mention the villain thing. How do you get into playing someone so dark and go home and say, okay, I'm Joe again? Yeah, that's tough. I mean, it's a tough thing for a lot of actors, to film away from home and being away from family I found difficult amidst the pandemic. I miss them dearly. In many ways it's a virtue. I go to a kind of pretty horrible place with Fred. I don't necessarily want to meet my children straightaway. You know, my two girls and my wife are the most important elements of my life, and to do this show juxtaposed to those important elements is a tough one. It's nice to have space apart while I'm working. I'm looking for that cheesy proud of. I don't think they're going to be proud of daddy playing Fred. You're brilliant as Fred. Joe, thank you so much for being with us. Thank you. Good morning to you. 01:00:7200,379 -- 01:00:7202,419 Have a wonderful day. 01:00:7202,419 -- 01:00:7204,969 The season four finale of 01:00:7204,969 -- 01:00:7208,539 After 9-11, he was a young Assemblyman 01:00:7208,539 -- 01:00:7211,089 who helped pass emergency aid. 01:00:7211,089 -- 01:00:7215,679 In the Great Recession, he was the borough president 01:00:7215,679 -- 01:00:7219,249 who led the call for affordable housing. 01:00:7219,249 -- 01:00:7223,329 And from the first days of the pandemic, 01:00:7223,329 -- 01:00:7227,409 he was the comptroller fighting for economic justice. 01:00:7227,409 -- 01:00:7230,979 Now, when the stakes couldn't be higher, 01:00:7230,979 -- 01:00:7235,569 Scott Stringer's the only candidate prepared to be mayor. 01:00:7235,569 -- 01:00:7240,159 He'll rebuild our city...
