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.

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
