Resource Guide on Alternatives and Recycling, Environmental Estrogens in Everyday Products
Stone, Heather M.; Snedeker, Suzanne M.
This handout is a Resource Guide on alternatives to products that contain environmental estrogens. This includes alternatives to bisphenol-A (BPA), and how to choose detergents that do not contain estrogenic ingredients. It also provides links to resources on how to recycle electronics that may contain heavy metals that are known to be estrogenic. Researchers are concerned that low levels of environmental estrogens can work with the body's own estrogen to increase the risk of breast cancer. Keeping environmental estrogen out of our common environment is important to reduce exposure and reduce health risks.
