New study results have revealed that we are breathing in concerning levels of toxic outgassed PFAS chemicals inside our homes, schools and workplaces everyday.
According to documents obtained by researchers, Big Chemical companies DuPont and Daikin knew the dangers of a PFAS chemical compound widely used in food packaging since 2010, but hid them from the public and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
International scientists from around the world are warning that chemical pollutants in the environment have the potential to alter animal and human behavior.
Endocrine disrupting chemical BPA (bisphenol A) and BPS (aka, BPA-Free; bisphenol S) which allows manufacturers to now list their food and drink containers and other products* as “BPA-Free” on the labels, is causing concerns among scientists that these chemicals could “seriously damage” human brains.
According to the results of a new scientific study eating processed meat has been linked with an increased risk of developing dementia.
Researchers again report that BPA substitutes (BPS and BPF) are as bad or worse than BPA. In the latest study, prenatal exposure for the BPA-substitute chemical BPF was associated with impaired cognitive development in children.
U.S. congressional investigators found “dangerous levels of toxic heavy metals” in certain baby foods that could cause neurological damage.
Two separate scientific studies have revealed some sobering news about the link between air pollution chemicals and serious brain harm. In the first study, higher exposures to air pollution chemicals were associated with increased depressive symptoms and subsequent memory decline. In the second study, people who had higher levels of air pollution exposure had more brain shrinkage–the kind of shrinkage commonly seen in people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
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.
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.
