In addition to settlements for PCB and Dicamba, aspirin giant, pharmaceutical-agricultural chemicals company Bayer says it will pay up to $10.9 billion to settle a lawsuit over subsidiary Monsanto’s weedkiller Roundup.
Perchlorate, a chemical compound used in rocket fuels, fireworks, fertilizers, food packaging and many other industrial materials, seeps into groundwater–the very source of our drinking water. Now scientists have discovered perchlorate presents far more of a threat to our thyroids than previously believed. Unfortunately, the U.S. government has just decided not to regulate the amount of this toxic chemical in our drinking water.
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.
The links presented here will take you to the latest scientific research findings concerning PBDE chemicals and their link with adverse health outcomes. These research articles will also tell you where PBDE chemicals are hiding so that you can minimize your exposure.
New research has linked an increase risk for celiac disease in young people to toxic chemicals commonly found in pesticides, nonstick cookware, and fire retardants.
Bayer claims that the economic downturn resulting from the corona virus is behind the decision to offer less compensation to customers with cancer.
The synthetic “forever chemical” PFAS commonly found in processed food packaging, drinking water, stick resistant cookware, and stain resistant carpeting and clothing has been linked with an increased risk for miscarriage.
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 scientific study has demonstrated that RoundUp weedkiller triggers loss to biodiversity, thereby making ecosystems more vulnerable to pollution and climate change.
Scientific studies have demonstrated that PFAS is a toxic chemical and numerous adverse health consequences have been linked to it including some kinds of cancers (especially breast, testicular and prostate cancers), liver problems, heart disease, hormonal disruption, low birth weight and numerous other health problems including thyroid problems, high cholesterol, kidney problems, prostate problems and fertility problems. Now, another adverse health consequence has been added to that list: tooth decay in children.
