What Are Endocrine Disruptors and How Do They Impact Us?

Endocrine disruptors is a term that has been surfacing a lot lately, especially in the clean beauty and food industries. Do you know what exactly they are and how they can impact you?

What are endocrine disruptors?
Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can mimic, block, or interfere with the body's natural hormones, leading to various health effects and disruptions in normal hormonal function.

How do they impact us?
Exposure to these chemicals has been linked to reproductive problems, developmental issues, immune system disturbances, and certain cancers.

Where can they be found and how do we avoid them?
