Shifting Gears: Theo Colborn Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

 

For three days Host William Evans will speak with, Theo Colborn founder of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX) . She is credited with identifying damage to human’s  reproductive health caused by small doses of toxic chemicals. Together they will explain why the lack of Public Health Protection of Air and Water is a concern to residents of the Upper Colorado Drainage.

This is from the Split Estate film’s website:

Honored by Time Magazine as a 2007 global Environmental Hero, Dr. Theo Colborn is Professor Emeritus at the University of Florida, Gainesville, and President of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX, Inc) in Paonia, Colorado. She is the author of numerous scientific publications about compounds that interfere with hormones and other chemical messengers that control development in wildlife and humans. Her incisive research has demonstrated that endocrine disrupting chemicals alter development of the fetus in the womb by interfering with the natural hormonal signals directing fetal growth. She is co-author of the groundbreaking 1996 book Our Stolen Future with Dianne Dumanoski and J. Peterson Myers. Her work has prompted the enactment of new laws around the world and redirected the research of academicians, governments, and the private sector. Most recently, Dr. Colborn was awarded the Swedish Goteborg Prize for the Environment and Sustainability.
