About TEDX

We believe preventing exposure to harmful chemicals is a path to good health, and we strive to achieve this in everything we do.

TEDX is a science based, nonprofit research institute. Our mission is to reduce harm caused by exposure to chemicals that affect the body's endocrine (hormone) system. We do this by identifying, evaluating, synthesizing, and interpreting scientific evidence. We publish peer-reviewed papers, host scientific presentations, and create unique interactive tools to communicate the work of scientists studying endocrine disruption. By partnering with other nonprofit organizations we share this information with the public, policy makers from the local to global level, government agencies, and health conscious businesses. We believe preventing exposure to harmful chemicals is a path to good health, and we strive to achieve this in everything we do. 

TEDX's Oil and Gas Program

Many chemicals associated with oil and gas operations are endocrine disruptors. This includes chemicals used to facilitate oil and gas extraction, and those released from deep within the earth during the process. TEDX was one of the first organizations to recognize the potential health impacts of exposure to chemicals associated with hydraulic fracturing.Chemicals retrieved from underground rock formations are valuable feedstock chemicals that are refined and synthesized into thousands of other chemicals used in industrial and consumer products, many of which are also endocrine disruptors.

TEDX was one of the first organizations to recognize the potential health impacts of exposure to chemicals associated with hydraulic fracturing, a relatively new process of extracting oil and gas that has spread rapidly across the US and the world. Our work in this area has been used to stimulate scientific research, prompt government regulatory action, and raise public awareness from the local to the global level, all in an effort to protect public health.
