Results from a new survey published by the Belgian Independent Health Insurance Funds (Mutualités Libres / Onafhankelijke Ziekenfondsen) reveal nearly half of Belgian citizens have little knowledge of what endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) are and how they can impact our health, despite having daily habits like heating up food in plastic containers that could increase their exposure to these harmful hormone disruptors.

This is why the Mutualités Libres and the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) have teamed up to bring you 10 tips on how to avoid endocrine disrupting chemicals in and around your home. This infographic is available in English, French and Dutch.
