You Could Be Ingesting These 12 Hormone-Altering Chemicals
What chemicals can alter your hormones, and are you accidentally ingesting them?
Environmental Working Group Executive Director Heather White was on A Healthy You today to discuss the 12 hormone-altering chemicals: BPA, atrazine, perchlorate, arsenic, dioxin, mercury, phthalates, fire retardants, lead, glycol ethers, perflourinated chemicals and organophosphate pesticides.
BPA, a synthetic estrogen, is found in receipts. It is associated with heart disease and obesity.
Eggs and dairy contain dioxin, which comes from industrial processes. Fire retardants are found in foam.
Lead can be found in bright red lipstick.
