    Hello Theo,

    I didn't catch this email when it came through, and just found it, so please forgive the delay.

    I can't say enough about your positive impacts in bringing endocrine disruption, particularly by commercially important chemicals, effluents, and degradation products, into the mainstream so that scientists and the public can generate and access necessary information to give rise to reduced exposures and impacts now and into the future. Your founding of TEDX, now a decade ago, is another feather in your cap in this regard.

    Thanks for working both with and through the scientific community, to be both a catalyst and a science translator to the pubic.

    All the best,

    Dear Dr. Colborn,

    On behalf of my colleagues at Pesticide Action Network, congratulations on the 10th anniversary of TEDX!

    Our Stolen Future did so much early on to promote the undercurrent of advocacy that has been present in the endocrine disruptor field. We have seen advocacy from endocrine disruptor researchers in full play recently, with the recent public debate on the European Union’s plan to regulate endocrine disruptors. TEDX provides valuable resources for people seeking information on endocrine disruption, in a credible and science-based manner.

    Your work to publicize the problem of endocrine disruptors has been so important to the aims of science and organizations like mine. Pesticide Action Network recognizes your achievements and those of TEDX.

    Thank you for all you have done.

    Dear Theo,

    Thank you, from from your days back in Washington, DC until now, for the work you have done to support evaluation of New Chemicals at EPA and the treatment of environmentally sensitive patients by the alternative health community.

    With all best wishes for your continued well being,

    Pat Hilgard

    Dear Theo -- You're one of those rare and special people who have changed the way we view the world, and hopefully the way we will treat and care for it in the future. You have touched so many. Thank you for your inspiration, and for being you!

    Dear Theo
    We sincerely cerebrate TEDX’s 10th anniversary. Owing to your great problem presentation of “Endocrine Disruptive Chemicals”, we Japanese have learned a lot to look at the changing world around us.
    Although most of Japanese scientists are not so much interested in this matter as before, our NPO, JEPA (Japan Endocrine-disruptors Preventive Action) has been continuously paying attention to EDCs. For the last 5 years, we have been busy striving for the ban of neonicotinoids, because this pesticide could cause the nervous damages even to the humans, and aerial spraying of neonicotinoids in Japan has now become the problem of the humans, not the bees. At this moment, I am worrying the children’s nerve intractable diseases, neuromuscular diseases have also been increasing in Japan, I guess those are because of pesticides.
    Along with this problem, we think we have to introduce the new information which TEDX has been releasing. As in your country, developmental disabilities of the Japanese children have been increasing, however, at this moment, only few scientists relate this children’s disease with the chemicals around us in Japan. We need to break through this barrier first. We are going to introduce your precious knowledge as much as possible to Japanese. Hope you and TEDX will further contribute to the wellbeing of the society.

    I am sorry to send you congratulation message so late.
