Why are lab animals whose diet and exercise levels are precisely controlled getting fatter along with the rest of the modern world? In the Ancestral health movement we've become very aware of the harmful effects of mismatches in diet, exercise, sleep, stress and social connections, but is there more to obesity and disease than just those factors? Growing evidence points to the role endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), and specifically a class of them known as obesogens, are playing in the obesity and diabetes epidemics. This talk will explore EDCs and obesogens – what they are, and how they work - as well as talk about what ancestrally-minded individuals can do to protect themselves and their loved ones.
