This is an eye-opening account of the landmark research into the hidden chemicals that are endangering our health and keeping us fat. A new group of silent saboteurs—obesogens—is contributing to the obesity epidemic. These weight-inducing chemical offenders disrupt hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat, and change how we respond to dietary choices and caloric intake. The unregulated obesogens are pervasive (present in food, furniture, plastic products such as water bottles and food storage containers). Furthermore, the effects of some obesogens can be passed on to future generations by irreversibly interfering with the gene expression. Help your clients implement a three-step solution for reducing exposures and identify obesogen-free items for better health and weight management.
