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 OR2. 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.
