Do We Need to Stop Burning Candles? The Truth About EDCs.

What are EDCs and why should you care about them? 

Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) are a group of compounds that, despite being unnoticeable, have the potential to disrupt the delicate balance of our endocrine system. These seemingly harmless substances are part of our daily lives, from the products we use to the food we consume. EDCs lurk in unexpected places, impacting hormonal functions and, consequently, our overall well-being.

I’ve invited environmental toxins and green living expert Deborah de Moulpied onto the show to give us the 411 on all things EDCs.

Stick around to learn where these toxic chemicals are hiding in our daily lives and how we can minimize our exposure.
