How Everyday Foods and Products Are Disrupting your Hormones--and How to Protect Yourself and your FamilyeBook - 2000
Undetected intruders are lurking in your homes, creating havoc with our bodies' hormones and affecting our health, intelligence, fertility, and behavior. These "intruders" are hormone disruptors--chemicals from common foods and household items that masquerade as hormones--that can throw off the balance of our delicate signaling system.
In "Hormone Deception," Lindsey Berkson clearly explains where hormone disruptors come from and how they affect adults, children, and the unborn child. She also gives easy, practical tips for protecting home and family, such as vacuuming frequently and using water filters. She discusses the effects of common synthetic hormones such as birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, and fertility drugs.
