World Heath Report jointly with the United Nations Environment Forum

This is a short story-at-a-glance

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released a joint report with the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), titled: State of the Science of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs), which suggests a ban of endocrine disrupting chemicals may be needed to protect the health of future generations

The joint study is the most comprehensive report on EDCs to date, highlighting a wide variety of health problems associated with exposure, including: non-descended testes, breast, prostate and thyroid cancer, nervous system defects, and ADD/ADHD

Some of the most commonly used endocrine disrupters are Bisphenol-A (BPA), Bisphenol-S (BPS), PCB’s, phthalates and agricultural pesticides

Rather than compile an endless list of things to avoid, it's far easier to focus on what you should do to lead a healthy lifestyle with as minimal a chemical exposure as possible. Thirteen helpful tips are included
