What are Endocrine Disruptors?

Nourish your health and boost your fertility by saying goodbye to endocrine disruptors (EDCs)! Endocrine disruptors are common chemicals used as preservatives in foods and cosmetics. But, EDCs also mess up your hormones [1]. So, promote hormonal balance by avoiding these endocrine-disrupting chemicals.



Common sources of BPA include cashier receipts, canned food, plastic water bottles and containers, plastic toys, as well as CDs and DVDs.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is an industrial chemical that is used in making polycarbonate (clear and hard) plastics and epoxy resins (can coatings). Polycarbonate plastics are often used in storing food and beverages, while epoxy resins are present in some dental sealant and used to coat food cans and bottle tops.


Common sources of phthalates include the above personal care products, as well as some children’s toys, plastic packaging film, and cleaning supplies.

Phthalates are chemicals that make plastics more flexible and durable. Phthalates are also used as solvents for materials such as adhesives (glues), detergents, plastic clothing (raincoats), perfumes, soaps and hair sprays.


Biomonitoring is the measurement of people’s exposure to chemicals. The key objective is to advance the understanding of health implications of environmental chemical exposures.

In the 1970s, the National Biomonitoring Program was established by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Biomonitoring specimens from the U.S. population have been collected through the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). This program monitors the levels of environmental chemicals in the U.S. population and assesses trends over time.


The Human Exposome

The food and water you consume, the air you breath, and the products you use can all contain toxic chemicals.

Exposures to toxic chemicals being from the moment of conception and continue throughout life. The exposome is a measure of all exposures over a lifetime. The exposome interacts with your genome (genetic information) to determine your health.
