Every year Mamavation hosts a weekend conference called ShiftCon Social Media Conference where we bring influencers together with brands, nonprofits, scientists, doctors and other health professionals to discuss food & wellness issues, science, social media and female empowerment. Over the years, we have amassed a considerable library of videos from professionals that speak to topics of wellness, health, the environment, justice, and science. We wanted to share these videos with you because they contain information that is truly mind blowing, science-based, and enables you to be in the know about issues that are impacting your health and the health of your family everyday.
We have over thirty videos in our library, but have selected five of our favorites that present science-based information on our health, food & safety of consumer products in the grocery aisle. These videos represent scientific information that is most relevant to your health. Watching these videos will give you the best chance you have at combating chronic disease, protecting the IQ and fertility of your children, as well as protecting them from things like depression and obesity.
Video One–Dropping Science: The Mindblowing Truth Behind Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals
Pete is the scientist who coined the phrase “endocrine disrupting chemical” and has received awards and accolades from the National Institute of Health. We are living in an era of hormonally-related epidemics worldwide like breast cancer, ADHD, infertility, autoimmunity, obesity, diabetes, etc. Last year the World Health Organization (WHO) published a study saying endocrine disruption is a public health threat. But many endocrine disorders are on the rise and chronic diseases are happening at a greater frequency than gene alteration is possible. That tells you the environment is at play. And learning what type of consumer products are problematic are important to protecting your health and the health of your family. There are legions of studies that show plausible links to endocrine disrupting compounds and health effects in wildlife. The World Health Organization says there are ways to reduce exposure to disease by reducing exposures to endocrine disrupting chemicals. What are these chemicals, what is the science behind why they are dangerous, what can they do to your family and how to avoid them? All these questions are answered in Pete Myer’s presentation.
