ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS, HOW TO DETECT THEM SO NOT TO GET SICK
Did you know that endocrine disruptors can cause infertility, menstrual pathologies, fibroids or tumors? Also prostate problems, sterility or feminization in men.
Cosmetics are a great way for ENDOCRINE disruptors to enter our body.
Endocrine disruptors are chemicals with a shape similar to our hormones. So much so that they have the ability to attach to our hormonal receptors and alter their function.
They can act in different ways:
- Increasing the action of our own hormones.
- Inhibiting its action or producing a different effect.
They are like “hormonal thieves” that can alter our endocrine balance.
They can also cause metabolic disorders such as obesity and type II diabetes and in relation to the thyroid gland.
Both the European Parliament and the WHO have commissions dedicated to the study of these substances and the withdrawal of the most harmful ones such as bisphenol A is already being considered.
