Environmental Protection Agency officials will be traveling around the country this month to hold public meetings to address growing concerns about the problem of hormone-disrupting chemicals that are finding their way into the food chain and water supplies.

These so-called endocrine disrupting chemicals mimic hormones, and their presence correlates with a wide range of health problems including declining sperm counts and increases in breast and testicular cancer.

Guest:

  • Dr. Ted Schettler, a spokesman for Physicians for Social Responsibility and a member of the Endocrine Disrupters Screening and Testing Advisory Committee of the EPA.
