Obesogens:Do They Make Us Fat? Chemicals, Foods, Hormones and Pesticides in the Green Scheme

How Do Obesogens Make Us Fat? 

Through endocrine disruptors.

Endocrine disruptors work in two ways

1. They mimic the actions of naturallyoccurring hormones in our bodies 
     OR
2. Prevent the hormones we produce from performing correctly.

By doing this the endocrine disruptors:

  • Encourage the body to store fat.

  • Reprogram stem cells to become fatcells.

  • Cause the liver to become insulinresistant

  • Prevent leptin from being releasedfrom your fat cells to tell your body you are full.
