I've read Fred vom Saals work in this area in other venues. I have a question. How does one prevent exposure, or, at least lower exposure to these estrogenic chemicals?

No one is educating the average person on the street about the dangers inherent in their use of these chemicals and products. It's assumed by the general public, that the government would not allow the use of these chemicals if they were harmful.

People do not understand how the process works. They are not aware that the government doesn't, for the most part, regulate the chemical industry.

So, again, I ask, what can the average person do to protect themselves and those they love?

No competing interests declared.
