Why We Gain Weight More Than We Used To
Research just released from Endocrine Society at the Conference on Chemicals Management, in Geneva, Switzerland flat out points to chemicals as one of the biggest reasons we are getting obese. But wait there's more.
Unnatural chemicals are in just about everything, things like cash register receipts, plastics, can linings, cosmetics, and food.
These chemicals for practical purposes are called "EDC's." EDC's affect your hormones and make them go haywire, bringing on Type 2 Diabetes, Cancers, Obesity, make your pancreas have not only problems, but brings on cancer of the pancreas. It can start before you are even born. If you are under 70, you've been exposed and face problems from EDC's.
Now just because you know this, doesn't mean you have to be obese, have type 2 diabetes, cancer or other problems. We all have been exposed to the same EDC's, so everyone is in the same boat. All this study says is, "We all have a problem that we need to overcome."
It's up to you. Are you going to overcome it or own the victim role? I have cancer and odds are it's because of EDC's. I choose to overcome it not be a victim because of it.
I do find it rather ironic, that in order to make our lives better, we've done just the opposite.
