11 Effective Ways to Avoid Endocrine Disruptors for Better Health

1. Wash your hands
Wash your hands frequently using non-fragranced and antibacterial-free soaps. This simple act helps remove chemical residue such as endocrine disruptors and minimize exposure.

2. Vaccum and dust your home often
Keep your home clean by dusting with a damp cloth and using a vacuum with a HEPA filter. This reduces the accumulation of hormone-disrupting flame retardant chemicals, along with other harmful substances like lead and phthalates.

3. Say no to fragrances

Opt for fragrance-free creams, cleaning products, and laundry detergents. Check ingredient labels to avoid unexpected sources of fragrance in products like diapers or garbage bags.

4. Be mindful of plastics

Swap plastic food storage containers with glass or stainless steel alternatives. When choosing plastic items, research safer options and avoid using them to store fatty foods or heating them in the microwave.

5. Minimize canned food consumption

Cans are often lined with BPA, a known endocrine disruptor. Opt for fresh, frozen, or dried alternatives packaged in aseptic cartons or glass containers.

6. Make conscious food choices

Whenever possible, opt for organic produce and whole foods. Choose conventionally grown foods known to have minimal pesticide residue. Cook with stainless steel or cast iron cookware instead of nonstick options that may harbor EDCs. Filter for products using the Organic Certified preference

7. Filter your tap water

Use an NSF-certified water filter to reduce exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals that may be present in tap water.

8. Pay attention to your cosmetics

Double-check the ingredient tab for Yellow or Red highlighted Ingredients. Cosmetics are known to have endocrine disruptors and other toxic ingredients that are detrimental to your long-term health. Don’t forget to verify products with Tera.

9. Clean smarter

Opt for cleaning products from companies that disclose their ingredients and look for the Safer Choice label. Only by cleaners that are highlighted as Non-Toxic, No Reproductive Impact, and Non-Carcinogenic.

10. Raise your voice and vote with your dollar

Advocate for stricter regulations and systems to keep toxic chemicals out of our food, water, and homes. Let companies, agencies, and policymakers know that protecting our health and the environment is of utmost importance.
