We all have plenty of disruptions in life. School. Car problems. Losing your phone. But, what about those disruptions that are truly unsettling, endocrine disruptors? Increasing production of certain hormones. Decreasing the production of certain hormones. Imitating hormones in the body. Turning one hormone into another. Interfering with hormone signaling. Telling cells to die prematurely. Competing with essential nutrients in the body. Binding to important hormones. Accumulating in the organs that secrete hormones. There is no end to the tricks that endocrine disruptors can play on our bodies.
Here are twelve of the worst, how they do their dirty deeds, and some tips on how to avoid them. We here at the Non Toxic Revolution are huge proponents of staying ahead of the curve: the toxic curve that is. So while there’s plenty that we can and should be aware of there is always more we can be doing to live the healthiest, cancer-free lives we can. Well, we teamed up with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) on a project that highlights twelve of the worst endocrine disruptors.
