Summary

An eye-opening account of the landmark research into the hidden chemicals that are endangering our health and keeping us fat

Being overweight is not just the result of too many cheeseburgers or not enough exercise. According to leading-edge science, there are silent saboteurs in our daily lives that contribute greatly to our obesity epidemic: obesogens. These weight-inducing offenders, most of which are chemicals, disrupt our hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat, and change how we respond to dietary choices. Because they are largely unregulated, obesogens lurk all around us - in food, furniture, plastic products such as water bottles and food storage containers, and other surprising exposure points. Even worse: research has shown that the effects of some obesogens can be passed on to future generations by irreversibly interfering with the expression of our genes. The good news is we can protect ourselves by becoming more informed consumers.

In The Obesogen Effect, Dr. Bruce Blumberg describes how obesogens work, reveals where they are found, and offers a practical three-step solution for reducing exposures. He explains why one size does not fit all in a weight loss program, what hides in our household goods, and how we should shop for items we buy every day - from vegetables and meats to canned soup as well as household cleaners, air fresheners, and personal care products. The Obesogen Effect is an urgent call to action to protect your body, clean up your life, and set a straight course for better health.

excellent important information!

got real bogged down in scientific details in the first 3rd. maybe that would be important to somebody writing a research paper but I think a good follow-up should be made to this that's a little more easy to follow. super great information though! ground breaking research
