Toxic Chemicals and Your Hormones: Health Effects and How to Reduce Exposure  

Many consumer and personal care products are useful but contain chemicals that disrupt hormones. These endocrine disruptor chemicals (EDCs) have effects that are fascinating, alarming and far-reaching. An overview of EDCs will describe the sources, toxic properties, mechanisms of EDCs, and how we are exposed, then focus on the health impacts of specific EDCs. The course will conclude with a discussion of toxic chemical regulations and actions that we can take to reduce our exposure to EDCs. Fran Solomon is an environmental biology professor at WWU, Huxley College of the Environment. She earned a BS in biology from the U of Rochester, an MS in environmental health and PhD in fisheries from the UW. Her teaching experience includes teaching older adults through Shoreline CC and UW Osher. It is fun and rewarding for her to teach people in her age group eager for new learning and applying it to their lives.
