If you're familiar with the problem of endocrine disruption, which was brought to public attention by the book co-authored by Dr. Theo Colburn, "Our Stolen Future" (http://www.ourstolenfuture.org/), you might be interested in this talk by Dr. Carol Kwiatkowski, the Executive Director of TEDX, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange. It's not only a problem for humans, but for other species exposed to hormone disruption.

State of the Science with a Message from Alaska

Dr. Carol Kwiatkowski has been the Executive Director of TEDX, The Endocrine Disruption Exchange since 2008. She is an Assistant Professor Adjunct at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Department of Integrative Physiology. She and her team review scientific studies of endocrine disruption, including impacts of environmental chemicals on the reproductive, central nervous, immune, and metabolic systems. Much of the work focuses on the life long health effects of endocrine disruption experienced during prenatal and early post-natal development. Chemicals of particular interest include plastics, pesticides, and air pollutants associated with unconventional oil and gas production.
