Many consumer and personal care products that we use every day contain chemicals that disrupt our hormones. A large body of scientific evidence indicates that these endocrine disruptor chemicals (EDCs) cause or contribute to many diseases and health issues in humans and other species. This talk explores how EDCs in personal care products harm our health, specific health effects, why our children are especially vulnerable and actions that we can take individually and collectively to reduce our exposures and the exposures of our families.
