Quote of the Day: Endocrine Disruptors

Quote

“We seem to be accepting as a society that it’s acceptable to load up our next generation with chemicals in an unregulated manner and hope they’re not bad. We need to change that entire culture.”

— Thomas Zoeller, UMass Amherst Professor and co-author of a joint report by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Environment Program on endocrine disrupting chemicals.

The report, State of the Science of Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals, concludes that endocrine disruptors, which interfere with human and animal development and reproduction, present a “global threat.”

Finally, we are moving in the right direction.

One of my personal goals for the near future is to learn exactly how the endocrine system works and how these chemicals disrupt it.
