Obesogens: Uncovering a Hidden Weight Gain Factor

Obesogens are a class of environmental chemicals that have been found to contribute to weight gain and various other health issues. These chemicals interfere with the normal functioning of the body’s metabolic processes, altering hormone levels and disrupting energy balance. This leads to an increase in fat storage, particularly in the abdominal area, and an increase in body weight. Obesogens can be found in everyday products such as plastic bottles, food packaging, personal care products, and pesticides, making them nearly impossible to avoid. Exposure to obesogens has also been linked to several other health problems such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, infertility, and certain types of cancers. It is important to be aware of the potential presence of obesogens in our daily lives and to take steps to reduce exposure in order to promote health and well-being.
