TEDX podcast: Science of fracking and hormone disruption

When absorbed in the body, an endocrine disruptor can decrease or increase normal hormone levels (left), mimic the body’s natural hormones (middle), or alter the natural production of hormones (right).

The latest TEDX podcast asks:

What is the latest science on fracking and hormone disruption?

Episode 7:  Dr. Susan Nagel, Associate Professor and Director of the Research Success Center in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at the University of Missouri, discusses the science on health effects from prenatal exposure to fracking chemicals, and the possible connection to adverse birth outcomes from human epidemiological studies. She suggests expanding research through further collaboration with impacted communities.
