Hormones are essentially messengers. They exist in all parts of the body and travel throughout the body. They tell our cells and organs what to do.
Endocrine disrupters mimic, block, or interfere with hormones.
A chemical compound studied and proven to be an endocrine disrupter is Phthalates and they’re in virtually everything. Hence the nickname, “the everywhere chemical.”
Mess with the hormones and mess with…everything.
No need to stress! There is much we can do to limit our exposures and also to create and maintain bodies that are better able to be resilient to what we can’t control.
