Endocrine-Disrupting Obesogens: An Interview with Stephen Perrine

Last week we talked about the basics of a group of endocrine-disrupting chemicals called obesogens.  The whole thing sounded pretty bleak, but I promised to bring you some good news, so here we go!

I had the opportunity to interview Steve Perrine, author of The New American Diet, Editor of Children’s Health and Editor-at-Large for Men’s Health.

In our recorded interview, you’ll  learn why:

  • The Old American Diet has stripped vital nutrients from our food, trained our bodies to store fat, and kept us hungry and unhappy
  • Solutions that will trim flab from our bodies, improve our emotional well-being, and cut down our impact on the environment
  • Top 3 recommendations for removing surprise obesogens from your diet
  • How to support repair for harm from exposure

    Nice job and good advice with the folates and leafy greens. Good thing my DD loves ceaser salads, so she'll do the romaine lettuce.

    Thanks for the kudos! We've been focusing on getting more of those good greens in our diets in my family too. I also learned recently that lentils are packed with folate (and tons of fiber), so I just cooked my first lentil soup tonight and it was a hit! Here's the recipe I used (with all organic ingredients of course!) http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/fr

    My 1.5yo son's morning routine is a serving of fruit and oats [mashed with split peas or lentils] which provides complete a protein in our vegetarian diet. 3 times a week we do an omelette with a few spinach/kale frozen baby cubes tossed in. Nice to know there are other benefits to our porridge and “green eggs” I hadn't considered. As always, thanks for all the info!

    The medical science has very few methods to treat this types of cancer. This method helps the doctors to detect the severity of the neuroendocrine colon cancer and helps to determine the suitable medication and treatment for it. Immunohistochemical staining methods is specifically used for neuroendocrine markers.
