Appel de la Jeunesse: Conference on the impact of our environment on our health – EDCs

On 29 January, Appel de la Jeunesse in partnership with the Association ‘Eco-Campus’ held a conference on the impact of EDCs and the environment on our health.

André Cicolella, President of Réseau Environnement Santé who attended the conference highlighted the relationship between the increase of chronic diseases and our environment through the use of EDCs.

Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, chronic respiratory diseases, and hypersensitivity, are long-term illnesses and the leading cause of deaths worldwide despite the fact that nearly 80% of them are preventable.

Discussions followed on the lasting political, economic and social consequences of EDCs for public health.
