Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that interfere with our endocrine system, the hormones that control development & growth and the way our bodies function on a daily basis. Exposure can lead to reproductive disorders, weakened immune systems, reduced intelligence, increased aggression, and can have devastating effects during pregnancy and on young children. Unfortunately, these chemicals are found in household products, toys, plastic food and beverage containers, herbicides & insecticides, and even in many of the foods we eat.
