3 Ways Obesogens Promote Weight Gain

Obesogens disrupt three important systems in our body, the disruptions in all three cases lead to weight gain.

The first method obesogens take is to block or up-regulate hormone receptors[1] of the metabolism.This leads to changes in the numbers and sizes of fat cells.

The next way obesogens attacks us is by unbalancing our sex hormones—which play a role in our weight management.


Negative effects of this include lowered growth hormone secretion and insulin resistance.

The final way obesogens affects us is a little too complicated to get into for this article, but they mess with the hypothalamus, adrenal, and pituitary glands in multiple ways.

This leads to an unbalancing of our energy and appetite systems.

Nasty stuff. Right?
