On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation with Dr. Leonardo Trasande about his new book Sicker, Fatter, Poorer: The Urgent Threat of Hormone-Disrupting Chemicals to Our Health and Future … and What We Can Do About It.

He says over 1,000 everyday chemicals could disrupt hormones and have life altering effects on all of us, especially children. What can we do to limit our exposure to harmful chemicals?
