ENDOCRINE DISRUPTING CHEMICALS


Gillian Martlew, N.D. | 13 Feb 2004

Many pesticides and industrial chemicals are capable of interfering with the proper functioning of estrogen, androgen and thyroid hormones in humans and animals. These substances are called endocrine disruptors.
It is really frightening when you think that our health, and the health of the children, is in the hands of a bunch of people who think with their wallets, not their brains. The following quote aptly illustrates the corporate thinking of the last few decades. The little treasure who let this one slip is one Othal Brand, a member of a Texas pesticide review board on the chemical Chlordane. His words of wisdom are thus, “Sure it’s going to kill a lot of people, but they may be dying of something else anyway.”
There are over 100 chemicals linked with a new and disturbing medical condition known as endocrine/hormone disruption. Scientists are reporting that chemicals and other compounds we are exposed to on a daily basis can mimic, block or otherwise interfere with the signals of naturally occurring hormones, particularly estrogens. These hormone/endocrine disrupting chemicals are also known as environmental estrogens, xeno (foreign) estrogens, or estrogen mimics.
