The Estrogen Effect: How Chemical Pollution Is Threatening Our Survival

Scientists around the world are finding alarming changes in human reproduction and health due to our over-exposure to chemicals that can mimic the female hormone estrogen.

Through extensive interviews with fertility experts and scientists worldwide, as well as members of the chemical industry, Cadbury provides a balanced, cogent argument that these hormone-disrupting chemicals may pose a threat not only to our human potential, but to our very survival.
