"Health Recovery" before Wealth Recovery.

We need to recognize the huge rapidly growing health threat posed by endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) which are behind the rise in many cancers, such as prostate and breast cancers, metabolic syndrome, Type 2 diabetes, and morbid obesity and many more in a dose related manner.

EDCs build up, “persist” in the environment. There is an urgent need for universal healthcare because people will need care if we continue polluting as we have been. many of the illnesses caused by EDCs are increasing rapidly. Shortening lives is not the answer, reducing the pollution is.
