Obesity and Type II Diabetes

The Inability To Control Glucose & Calorie Levels

What Happens?

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC's) enter into the body and hijack the chemical messengers in the pancreas, fat cells, and liver. This can cause insulin resistance and an abundance of the hormone. Over time, this can lead to health problems like obesity and type II diabetes.
