Pete is the scientist who coined the phrase “endocrine disrupting chemical” and has received awards and accolades from the National Institute of Health. We are living in an era of hormonally-related epidemics worldwide like breast cancer, ADHD, infertility, autoimmunity, obesity, diabetes, etc. Last year the World Health Organization (WHO) published a study saying endocrine disruption is a public health threat. But many endocrine disorders are on the rise and chronic diseases are happening at a greater frequency than gene alteration is possible. That tells you the environment is at play. And learning what type of consumer products are problematic are important to protecting your health and the health of your family. There are legions of studies that show plausible links to endocrine disrupting compounds and health effects in wildlife. The World Health Organization says there are ways to reduce exposure to disease by reducing exposures to endocrine disrupting chemicals. What are these chemicals, what is the science behind why they are dangerous, what can they do to your family and how to avoid them? All these questions are answered in Pete Myer’s presentation.
