Online event: Biomedicine in our daily life - Oestrogens, Fish, Frogs, and Water Bottles​ Webinar

Event status:

Xeno-oestrogens are everywhere, in plastics, foods, detergents, pharmaceuticals, shampoos - everywhere! Learn about how our long-term exposure to a high estrogen environment can cause many health problems, like cancer. It’s not good news for fish or frogs either, so what we can do about it?

Xeno-oestrogens are organic molecules that behave like the female estrogen hormone. They are everywhere - in plastics, foods, detergents, pharmaceuticals, and shampoo. Our long-term exposure to a high estrogen environment can cause many health problems, like cancers. It’s not good news for our aquatic life either that swim in water contaminated by these pollutants.

In this webinar you’ll find out more about xeno-oestrogens, where they are found in our everyday life and how we can manage our use and look to the future.

This webinar will highlight elements from our Bachelor of Biomedical Science.
