How Toxins Disrupt Your Endocrine System and What To Do About It
Are your hormones disrupted? Every year, chemical companies in the US manufacture over 6.5 trillion pounds of 9,000 different chemicals. Over 7.1 billion pounds of 650 different chemical pollutants are released into our atmosphere and water. Of these, about 48 tons of mercury are released into our environment annually.
If it is in our air and water, it is in us.
The CDC found BPA in the urine of 95% of the adults tested.
The Environmental Working Group found 200 chemical pollutants in the cord blood of all tested newborns, including PCBs, dioxins, flame retardants, DDT, pesticides and mercury.
Many of these chemicals are potent endocrine disrupters, meaning, they will wreak havoc on hormone balance, and contribute to a number of endocrine and other conditions, including:
- Attention disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Immune dysregulation and autoimmunity
