Environmental Estrogens

Deformed Frog


Was it an environmental estrogen that cause the deformities in this frog? Some well water in Minnesota has been shown to cause such deformities. Nor is the problem confined to just Minnesota, the deformities have been found throughout North America. This is the next major environmental crisis set to explode in the next century and has the potential to be larger than global warming and ozone depletion combined. Many of the suspected environmental estrogens are chemicals that are in widespread use and can have a wide range of effects. Are we poisoning our environment and ourselves all in the name of corporate greed? The one sure way to stop this madness is to support tough environmental laws that include prison terms for senior mangaement and members of the board of directors for violating the environmental laws.
