EWGs Dirty Dozen Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is at it again. Famous for their Dirty Dozen list of the top 12 fruits and vegetables most contaminated with pesticides, EWG has a new Dirty Dozen—for hormone-disrupting chemicals. They have compiled a list of the 12 worst endocrine-disrupting chemicals and how to avoid them. Here is the list:
- Bisphenol A (BPA)
- Fire retardants
- Perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs)
- Organophosphate pesticides
- Glycol esters
For more information about these chemicals, their damaging effects, and how you can avoid them, see EWG’s guide here.
