Endometriosis occurs when endometrial cells grow where they shouldn’t – in places other than the uterus lining. It is estimated that up to 10% of women, or more, suffer endometriosis. Some studies have recently indicated that molecules from plastic, that break down in heat, can mimic estrogen, and may contribute to hormone problems, such as endometriosis. The rate of endometriosis is estimated to be 80% greater in women exposed to DiEthylStilbestrol in utero.
