Sicker, Fatter, Poorer

$340 billion. That’s what diseases caused by exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals in our food, environment and household and personal care products cost the U.S. every year, says children’s environmental health expert Dr. Leonardo Trasande.

Trasande is the author of “Sicker, Fatter, Poorer,” a new book highlighting the harmful effects of thousands of endocrine disruptors, also known as hormone mimickers.

In a recent CBS News segment, Trasande said,  "Hormones are molecules that our body uses to signal and communicate, and hormone disruptors are chemicals that scramble those signals and contribute to disease.
