It’s Time to Pay More Attention to Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDC)


It’s surprising that the wellness industry hasn’t paid more attention to endocrine disruptors—a “silent killer” of wellbeing for both humans and the planet.

There is strong, recent evidence that exposure to toxic EDCs should be reduced through regulatory action.
