Despite how much you exercise or diet there could be something happening with your shoes that could be causing you to gain a few extra pounds.

As we head towards summer you will start to see a lot of people focusing on their beach body. Get ready for all of the pictures of healthy foods and of course the notable gym selfie. How else would we know about someone's progress and physical transformation if they didn't post a picture of themselves staring at locker room mirror?

There are approximately 80,000 registered obesogen chemicals and we encounter a lot of them everyday.

Some of the most common things around your house that contain obosogens are cleaning products, plastic bottles, teflon pans, cigarette smoke, shampoo, soaps and even dust particles.
