The results from a long-term study revealed a significant link between air pollution and an increased risk of hospital admissions for several neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementia-related conditions.
To increase screening of chemical intolerance, researchers have developed and validated a three-question survey that can be incorporated into patient visits within a minute.
After reviewing hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies researches have concluded that a growing number of chemicals in pesticides, flame retardants, and certain plastics have been linked to widespread health problems including infertility, diabetes, and impaired brain development. Exposure to certain chemicals found in industrial and household goods has also been linked in new studies to obesity; to endometriosis, a painful and abnormal growth of tissue on the outside of the womb; and to polycystic ovary syndrome, a significant cause of infertility.
The microbes that inhabit our bodies are influenced by what we eat, drink, breathe and absorb through our skin, and most of us are chronically exposed to natural and human-made environmental contaminants. In this study, scientists reviewed the research linking dozens of chemicals present in our personal care products, home care products, general environment and our food to changes in the gut microbiome and associated health challenges.
Why so many people are eating poorly during the coronavirus lock down–and solutions for eating clean during times of chaos and uncertainty.
The results of a new study suggest that children in households with frequent use of toxic chemicals in household cleaners were more likely to show delays in cognitive and language development by age two.
A new study has demonstrated a link between pregnant women’s exposure to the endocrine disrupting toxic chemical family known as “phthalates” and autism in boys.
BPA-Free food containers are coated with BPS–a synthetic chemical that is just as dangerous to health and well-being as BPA. More specifically, researchers have linked BPS (aka the BPA-Free chemical) with serious problems for the developing brain.
New research findings have revealed a dirty secret in this widely used industrialized food additive: Soybean oil can not only lead to obesity and diabetes in some people (something that has been suspected for some time), but it also appears to have the potential to trigger neurological problems–which could potentially lead to conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
The results of a current scientific study indicate that the children of mothers exposed to flame retardants during their pregnancy have an increased risk for the type of cognitive deficits that lead to reading problems.
