So what is an endocrine disruptor and why should it concern you?
It all boils down to this: they mimic, disrupt or block the actions of your hormones and interfere with your body’s hormonal pathways.
And when you consider the fact the endocrine system regulates every function of your body and provides instructions to your body that tell your cells what to do, this can have disastrous consequences.
For instance, one messenger hormone, estrogen, is secreted by ovaries and plays a big part in regulation of fertility, pregnancy, menstruation and fat cell activity.
And too much estrogen can cause big problems including weight gain, fluid retention, and depression.
