Heavy Metals As Hormone Distuptors

The Environmental Working Group just released a list of what it considers the 12 worst hormone disrupting chemicals, and the heavy metals arsenic, mercury, and lead are on the list (which comes as a surprise to many).  This is very useful to know for those of you trying to figure out why hormone imbalances happen (whether the imbalances relate to low or high estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, etc.).  So, taking hormones is one way to try to address the problem, but to truly address the cause of hormonal imbalances, you may have to take into account the direct impact of your living environment.  That awareness will often translate into healthier dietary and lifestyle choices.  It should motivate us all to purchase as much organic food as possible, to filter our drinking water, and to use more environmentally friendly products in the home.  The Environmental Working Group website is an excellent resource in that regard, which is www.ewg.org.  Please clickhere to read a fascinating article discussing this study and to learn more about the environmental impact on hormones.
