My Sustainable Home, Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals & Breast Cancer
My sustainable home aspires to limit my exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals which are now seen as a factor in the development of hormone sensitive cancers.
This project was undertaken after recovering from a third breast cancer.
Simple changes can lessen ongoing exposures to these chemicals.
A metal electric jug rather than a plastic jug means each time you have your tea or coffee it does not come spiced with cancer causing chemicals.
Replacing your plastic drinking bottle with a metal bottle stops chemicals leaching into your drinking water.
Saving glass jars for storage also stops endocrine disrupting chemicals corrupting healthy foods.
