This report was released on Feb 19. An international team of experts reported today that evidence linking hormone-mimicking chemicals to human health problems has grown stronger over the past decade, becoming a "global threat" that should be addressed.
The report is a joint effort by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme to give policymakers
the latest information on chemicals that alter the hormones of people and wildlife.
“Over the past decade, we know much better that chronic diseases, ones related to the endocrine system, are increasing globally,” said Thomas Zoeller, a professor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a co-author of the report.
BPA and Phthalates are named in this report as two of the most pervasive endocrine disruptors. “Frankly, for BPA, the science is done. Flame retardants, phthalates … the science is done,” Zoeller said. “We have more than enough information on these chemicals to make the reasonable decision to ban, or at least take steps to limit exposure.”
Route One Pumpkins products are guaranteed free of these chemicals.
