Have you heard of Obesogens?

Coined in 2009 by researchers, these are chemical contaminants that mess with our hormonal systems and stimulate fat accumulation in the body.    The American Medical Association says it plays a major role in America’s obesity, heart disease and diabetes.  Obesogens work to lower metabolism and the ability to burn fat.  The 3 main sources of obesogens are pesticides, hormone-fed beef & poultry, and the plastic lining found in metal cans.

The average American is exposed to 10-15 pesticides per day, 90% of which are linked to obesity. The average cow is injected with 5-6 hormones to fatten them up. The plastic which lines metal cans, has BPA which the FDA has warned is very toxic.
