Your being exposed to them in the air you breath, the water that you drink and the food that you eat the things you touch. You can not avoid ingesting them. A hormone is a signal chemical a molecule attaches itself to a cell. It will portray this message to that cell. If that message is to cause cancer it only takes one cell an one molecule to potentially kill you. You have no protection, unless you live in a room with filtered air, water and food all the time. Oh! and don’t touch anything man made. Good luck with that. 🙂

Everyone faces fatal hazards everyday, from driving to the fire and explosion hazards of heating our homes to electrocution from the electrical appliances we use daily. We manage our activities to reduce the risk of these hazards, and we function satisfactorily. It is impossible to live without facing hazards!

If exposure is not considered, we might as well ban everything, including fire and water!
