How Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals are Impacting Your Health and What to do About it With Dr. Leo Trasande Clean & Green Living

    • Health & Fitness

It’s quite likely that your doctor has never mentioned Endocrine Disrupting chemicals, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t impacting your health. Each and every one of us, albeit often invisibly: is impacted by endocrine-disrupting chemicals every single day. They are in our food, our personal care and cleaning products, and in so many other aspects of our daily life. 
For many years the research focused only on early-life exposures, but now endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are understood to contribute substantially to chronic disease in adulthood, especially metabolic, cardiovascular, and reproductive consequences as well as endocrine cancers. 
My guest today is Dr. Leo Trasande, With his extensive background as a medical doctor, researcher, health policy expert, and author, Dr. Trasande is committed to providing us with the tools and knowledge necessary to reduce our exposure to these chemicals. Our conversation today goes beyond merely spotlighting the issue; it's about providing actionable solutions and most importantly, fostering optimism for a safer and healthier future.
