What if everything you knew about the biology of body weight is wrong? According to compelling, leading-edge science, being overweight isn't just the result of too many cheeseburgers and not enough cardio. Another silent factor is contributing mightily to our obesity epidemic: "obesogens."

These toxins--which are everywhere, from our food containers to furniture--sabotage our efforts to lose weight by disrupting our endocrine system, altering how we metabolize fat and permanently changing our fat cells, despite our efforts to count calories, exercise, and lose weight. Even scarier: lab tests have proven that these chemicals can irreversibly re-program the expression of our genes, which means that obesity can become an inherited trait. The chemicals we're exposed to will not just meaningfully affect our health, but our children's health, and future generations as well.

Sound like science fiction? Dr. Blumberg was the first to coin the term "obesogens" in 2006 when the irrefutable data was staring him in the face. His research spawned a whole new area of study that has triggered a fascination among top scientists worldwide to understand obesogens-how they work, where they are hidden, and what it means for our health and that of future generations.

In THE OBESOGEN EFFECT, Dr. Blumberg is ready to reveal his landmark research to show how hidden chemicals might be the root cause of our 21st century obesity epidemic. With a rich blend of storytelling, anecdotes, a synthesis of his research, and a three-step action plan to prevent and minimize the effects of obesogens, THE OBESOGEN EFFECT will transform your life and the lives of future generations.
