Someday, I imagine myself and my generation in a world with happy, healthy children. In the name of science, culture, and social interactions, I also treasure being apart of an intelligent, socially complex, and long-living population. #UnleashValues
However, when our plastic planet is exposing us to Endocrine Disruptors (affecting not just fertility, but social cognition, brain development, puberty onset, cancer onset...etc.) via myriad pathways, this future feels out of reach. To me, the only resolution is to stop the situation from getting any worse.
For the sake of our children and our population, I advocate for:
◾️ Drastically transforming regulatory and preventative frameworks for Endocrine-Disrupting Pollutants
◾️ Immediately banning the use of single- and multi-use plastics outside of those completely necessary (e.g. PPE, or medical supplies)
