Xenoestrogens

At least a quarter of couples marrying today cannot take for granted that they will be able to have children without some dramatic intervention. This is probably due to a host of hormone disrupting chemicals to which most of us are exposed in greater or lesser measure. While this alone is grounds for serious concern, of even greater consequence is the increased incidence of cancer, especially among a younger and younger sector of the population.

Xenoestrogens can come from a variety of sources, but the bulk of the non-human hormones come from ingestion of animal products. This is followed by use of birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy. There are also substances that mimic hormones. These are largely found in petrochemicals, everything from plastics to fuel inhalation.
