Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month.

We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

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.
