Letter from Dr. Theo Colburn

The following letter was sent from Dr. Theo Colburn, who first discovered and coined the phrase "endocrine disruptors."  Her Colorado-based non-profit, the the Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX), advocates for more widespread information and protection from endocrine disrupting chemicals in our environment.

Dear friends and colleagues,
I recently gave a presentation at a TEDxMidAtlantic event in Washington DC in which I read a letter I sent to the President and First Lady of the United States. In this letter I remind them of the current epidemics of endocrine-related disorders and describe how the laws that were supposed to protect us have let us down. I close with two practical suggestions for the President to take action.

Please take a minute (actually 16 minutes) to view this, and if you agree, share it with everyone you know .

You can also copy the link and paste it in a message directly to the President.

Best wishes for a safe and healthy holiday season,

Theo Colborn
