Flavour of the Week

Environmental Contaminants and Obesity


Here at No Baloney we take an interest in all things nutrition-related and even step beyond those borders on occasion. The announcement last week regarding the increased incidence of breast cancer due to toxins in the work environment got us thinking about environmental toxins related to other diseases, particularly obesity. Rather than reinvent the wheel, we thought we’d send you to Verdant Nation (a blog by a PhD candidate in Population Health at the University of Ottawa) for an excellent post on environmental contaminants as they relate to obesity.

Pervasiveness of environmental contaminants: what does this mean for obesity?

Thanks for a great post, Megan!
