We were saddened to hear of the passing of environmental health analyst Theo Colborn this past December. Dr. Colborn was the Founder and President of The Endocrine Disruption Exchange and Professor Emeritus of Zoology at the University of Florida, Gainesville. She was best known for her ground-breaking studies on the negative health effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals, which really speaks to us here at Ursa Major (super natural and toxin free!). Her pioneering work prompted the enactment of new laws internationally and has influenced the future of research on these issues. If you want to learn more about Dr. Colborn and her work, watch her TEDx talk - "Letter to the President about chemicals disrupting our bodies". And if you want to dig a little deeper (which we highly recommend - this lady Lived Major!), check out the following links.
