Reducing our carbon footprint is important for our environment – but steps taken also need to protect the health and future of the human race.
We need to make sure that environmental alternatives support health and reproduction – and this is often not taken into account.
Many chemicals compounds produce environmental contaminants that act as hormone disruptors – some are still in use despite their known risks to health and reproduction. Extensive research also links environmental contaminants to obesity, diabetes and problems with reproduction.
We consumers can affect our health and wellbeing by questioning the norm and requesting healthy solutions. Some solutions are simple. Other bigger problems still need to be worked out and some are on their way to being solved. Be inspired!
