Rebekah: Hey guys. It's Bex here and I amhere with the lovely Alisa Vitti in her apartment in New York City, surrounded by baby things. Alisa: Yes. Rebekah: The last time you were on Bex Life,you were not pregnant. I was not pregnant and we were talking about birth control. Alisa: Right, and why we should all get offof it. Rebekah: We didn't take it and look whathappened to us. Alisa: Well, this was by planning, yes.
Rebekah: And this was by planning too. Alisa: That's right. Rebekah: I'm really excited because I'm36 and you're 37. Alisa: And look at how young and gorgeouswe look. Rebekah: I know. We are gorgeous! Alisa: Gorgeous. Rebekah: Healthy, vibrant. We are of advancedmaternal age. I can hardly get the words out. Alisa: Technically speaking, yes.
Rebekah: It's so gross. I hate â€“ I don'teven like saying that. Alisa: I know, I know. Rebekah: We only advanced in intellect andbeauty, really. Alisa: Amen. Love it. Love it! Rebekah: But a lot of our girlfriends arehaving babies, having their first babies. This is your first. This is my fifth. I'mnot the norm and they're having trouble and girlfriends our age and girlfriends youngerthan us and their men. Alisa: Yes.
Rebekah: What's going on? Alisa: I think it's a growing and somewhatfor whatever reason silent epidemic, this rise in infertility, both male and femaleinfertility, and what is termed idiopathic meaning no known cause. So you go. You haveyour checkup. Everything looks normal. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to makethe baby. But you can't.

Now we have women struggling in their midto late 20s. So what has changed? Here's what I think has changed. One, we're beingexposed to way more chemicals than we ever have been before.
The statistic that I have just read aboutis that your grandparents' generation was exposed to chemicals over the course of theirlifetime that you are exposed to in a 30day period. You're exposed to more chemicalsin 30 days than they were their entire lives. Rebekah: That's so scary. Alisa: And these chemicals of course are endocrinedisruptive which means they're really messing with your fertility. So that's reason numberone. Reason number two is that we are micronutrientdeficient in ways that we just are not realizing. We're eating like different kinds of diets.We're cutting out big macronutrients. We're
