Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Experts proclaim Hormone Deception a must-read:

"In Hormone Deception, Lindsey Berkson makes a compelling case for another reason to avoid a diet rich in animal fats, as these are most likely to contain hormone disruptors. Highly recommended."

--Dean Ornish, M.D., author of Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease and Love and Survival

"A wake-up call for the twenty-first century similar to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring! This book is absolutely essential reading for everyone who wants to reduce their exposure to the unsuspected new breed of toxins in everyday life--hormone disruptors."

--Ann Louise Gittleman, N.D., C.N.S., author of Eat Fat, Lose Weight and The Fat-Flush Diet

Undetected intruders are lurking in our homes and affecting our health, intelligence, fertility, and even behavior. These "intruders" are hormone disruptors--substances from everyday foods and products that masquerade as hormones and deceive our bodies' delicate hormonal signaling systems.

In Hormone Deception, Lindsey Berkson reveals where hormone disruptors come from and how they affect adults, kids, and unborn children. And she provides hope for better health with easy, practical ways to minimize your family's exposure to these dangerous substances.

In Hormone Deception, you will learn:

  • How hormonal messages from outside our bodies may be playing a vital role in our children's behavior, our fertility, and our overall health
  • The danger areas of a typical home and how to reduce the presence of hormone disruptors in those areas
  • Common foods and household products that have the highest and lowest amounts of hormone disruptors
  • Why scientists do not microwave food in plastic containers or with plastic cling wrap

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 347-420) and index.
