Endocrine Disruptors - Common Chemicals that Severely Alter Hormones - Dr. Shanna Swan

Shanna H. Swan, Ph.D., is one of the world’s leading environmental and reproductive epidemiologists and a professor of environmental medicine and public health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. An award-winning scientist, her work examines the impact of environmental exposures, including chemicals such as phthalates and Bisphenol A, on men’s and women’s reproductive health and the neurodevelopment of children.

In this video we explore how endocrine disruptors, in everyday things we use, are altering our hormones and reproductive systems. We've seen a massive decline in testosterone, fertility and other markers. Could this explain some of the social changes as well?

One important thing to note - products that don't contain phthalates and Bisphenol are more expensive. Services, like assisted reproduction, can only be accessed by those who can afford it. The ability to have a baby has become something of a class issue as well.
