Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) are found in our homes, offices, and air we breathe – and accumulating evidence shows they are negatively affecting our brains, bodies, and environment. In his book, Sicker, Fatter, Poorer: The Urgent Threat of Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals to Our Health and Future…and What We Can Do About It, Dr. Leonardo Trasande, a pediatrician, professor, and world-renowned researcher, exposes the chemicals that disrupt our hormonal systems and damage our health. Trasande will present a talk and discussion, “What should we do about PFAS, BPA, and other endocrine disruptors?” on Thursday, April 18, from 6 to 7 p.m. in C217 CPHB. His presentation is free and open to the public. He will be available to sign books following his presentation.  Trasande, MD, MPP, is an internationally renowned leader in children’s environmental health and a tenured professor in pediatrics, environmental medicine, and population health at New York University (NYU).
