The other “ED” and it’s many times worse.

You can choose to spend a little more on clean, ethical food or you will spend more on the drugs needed to treat whatever condition you contract from eating the other stuff.

Dr. Colborn has accumulated a database of eight hundred compounds that have documented, peer reviewed citations indicating endocrine disrupting properties; just two of the chemicals on that list – atrazine and glyphosate. Have pesticide registration requirements changed? No. Why? The pesticide industry is terrified of endocrine disruption. I laid out the science that underpins our entire registration and regulatory framework for pesticides. There is a fundamental assumption that as the dose of a poison gets smaller, its toxicity declines. With this assumption research is structured to discover the lowest dose that is toxic and then the safe level is set at a dose that is many multiples smaller. If the pesticide industry accepts endocrine disruption as a valid impact, there is no linear relationship between toxicity and dose and no short cut to determining safe levels.
