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 the production and use of chemicals that interfere with healthy hormone function. We achieve this by identifying and responding to pressing scientific questions, and collaborating with partners to protect and improve human and ecological health.
At TEDX we use systematic review methods developed by the US National Toxicology Program to answer questions about the hazards chemicals pose. We publish the results of these reviews in peer-reviewed scientific journals. We also host presentations and create unique interactive tools to communicate the work of other 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. Our primary focus is endocrine disruption, however we also explore the effects of other chemicals that, like endocrine disruptors, undermine the potential of humans and animals to thrive. For example, see our Oil and Gas Program Overview. We believe preventing exposure to harmful chemicals is a path to good health, and we strive to achieve this in everything we do.
