Intersex fish on Colbert Nation

Thursday, July 2, 2009

On July 1st Nicholas Kristof wrote an opinion piece in The New York Times on endocrine disruptors: It's Time to Learn from Frogs.

If you missed it, or prefer to get your science on Colbert Nation where Kristof appeared to discuss his piece, check out the show for yourself. Word to the wise: Colbert's humorous suggestion that intersex fish are caused by what Colbert calls "lady pee" is (surprise!) not true.

We recommend you read Kristof's NYT piece, his follow-up blog post, or our Enviroblog post on endocrine disruption to get the real story. But we're sure glad this important public health issue is getting some prime time.
