EDC-Free campaign support Alborada Foundation has launched a new international project in Spain entitled ¡Que no te alteren las hormonas! (Don’t let EDCs disrupt your hormones!).
The objective of this new project (in Spanish) is to raise awareness about EDCs and chemicals that may affect our hormonal system and have irreversible impacts on our health and the health of future generations.
As we are exposed on a daily basis to these chemicals which could be avoided and replaced, ¡Que no te alteren las hormonas! aims to inform the public about these substances, where they are found, how we can act and how we can reduce our daily exposure. You can find information on EDCs, with all the latest news and FAQs. Resources are available in Spanish.
Alborada Foundation works at the international level to inform citizens and policy makers on EDCs as it is vital to reduce exposure to these chemicals and use alternatives to protect our health and the environment. There are increasingly more diseases and health conditions such as cancer, fertility problems, increase in allergies and other diseases that are not only of genetic origin. There are several factors involved with growing evidence that our environment plays a fundamental role in the development of many of these diseases.
There has been a significant growth in chemical production in the past decades which has increasingly affects our health and the environment in which we live. Scientists around the world are ringing the alarm bell on the impacts of EDCs. As we are exposed to EDCs every day for example in products such as shower gel, lipstick, perfume, cleaning products, toys, plastics, carpets, etc, it is important to reduce the exposure to these chemicals and everyone can play a part in doing so.
