Paul Goettlich writes and lectures on the health and socioeconomic effects of technology and plastics, pesticides, genetic engineering among other things he deems to be important. He is on the Board of In this show he concentrates on endocrine disrupters-- ie, chemicals, or combinations of chemicals that synergistically interfere with our endocrine systems which are crucial for normal and healthy human development as well as for other animals and living things. When these extremely finely tuned systems are disrupted the result is disease. Plastic is a major endocrine disrupter. It is oil-based in all it's forms and toxic for our bodies. As we know all too well plastic is everywhere in our modern industrial world and affecting all of us in negative ways. According to Goettlich, these toxins always leak out and into the systems of living things where they affect our hormones and therefore our lives. Though heat can make it worse this leakage occurs even without heat. Goettlich strongly advises us to avoid all plastics as much as possible-- not an easy task, but an important one. We can use paper, glass, cloth, metal, etc.. We need to eat lower on the food chain where the toxins are less concentrated and stay away from commercial food. Also recycle, reuse, etc..

He thinks that technology is most usually bad for us and gives some examples. He also gives examples of the plastic in the oceans -- six times more than plankton in the middle of the Pacific -- killing sea birds and fish.
