What Are Endocrine Disruptors & Why Avoid Them

Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can interfere with your endocrine/ hormone systems.
These disruptions can lead to incorrect hormone production (lowered testosterone & increased estrogen production) & imbalance, cause cancerous tumours, birth defects & other developmental disorders.
Any of the systems in the body which are controlled by hormones can be devastated by hormone disruptors.
