Scientists have now identified over three thousand chemicals leaching into food from the food packaging. Experts warn that some of the chemicals found were extremely dangerous and could cause cancer.
Based on a report that has found “concerning levels of lead” in U.S. fruit juice* the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now plans to lower the acceptable levels of lead permitted in fruit juice.
Microplastics from clothing, packaging and bottles discovered in human lung tissue.
A new study has found microplastics in human blood for the first time. The discovery shows the particles can travel around the body and may lodge in organs. Microplastics enter the body from food and drink containers.
Researchers have provided evidence that complex mixtures of endocrine disrupting chemicals impact children’s brain development and language acquisition and disrupt the regulation of genes linked to autism.
The results of a new scientific study have demonstrated that exposure to phthalates — a ubiquitous group of chemicals found in everything from plastics to personal care products to electronics — may disrupt an important hormone needed to sustain a healthy pregnancy.
Scientists have recently demonstrated that the direct transmission of bisphenol A (BPA) from a mother to her developing child via the placenta could negatively impact fetal brain development.
The results of a recent study indicate that pregnant women exposed to these ubiquitous chemicals (phthalates are found in food/drinks, home care products and personal care products) can harm the reproductive systems of female offspring.
A new study has found that eating ultra-processed foods can increase the likelihood of a subsequent, more likely fatal heart attack–or stroke–in individuals who have already suffered an initial heart attack.
The results of a new scientific study have demonstrated that exposure to plastic-associated chemicals such as phthalates can increase the risk of high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
