The food additive Propionic Acid (PPA), a commonly used preservative in processed foods has been linked in new scientific research to harming the fetal brain and possibly leading to autism.
Scientists are calling on corporations and regulators to stop unnecessarily exposing the public to potentially deleterious chemicals like PFAS.
Highly processed junk food linked with lower test scores: A new study has found that children who reported higher consumption of snack foods and sugar-sweetened beverages scored lower on standardized academic tests.
According to the results of a new scientific study, micro-plastics are pervasive in your food and drink and the average American consumes more than 70,000 particles of “microplastics” every year — and that’s likely an underestimation, say the scientists heading up the research.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just released the findings of its own study of the presence of toxic industrial chemical PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalykyl substances) in food and found that it is, as numerous independent university and research institute studies have reported, leaching into the U.S. food supply.
Two more large-scale studies have demonstrated a link between diets containing ultra/highly processed foods and heart disease, stroke risk and early death.
Another state has filed a lawsuit against Big Chemical companies 3M, Dupont and others over toxic chemicals used in food packaging and other products that have ended up contaminating the public drinking water.
A new National Institute of Health (NIH) study has just been released that links highly processed foods to weight gain in a rather dramatic way.
More scientific findings linking food additive and nanoparticle Titanium Dioxide (used as a whitening agent in processed foods and medications) with serious adverse health reactions. As earlier studies have demonstrated, the current study links food additive Titanium Dioxide with triggering a host of serious inflammatory bowel diseases and even colorectal cancer.
A new study has replicated previous findings demonstrating there are toxic levels of carcinogenic chemicals in nail salons and in some cases the toxic levels can be higher than those found in auto garages and oil refineries. The study examined levels of chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) inside the air of nail salons. More specifically, the chemicals that are commonly found in nail products (benzene, formaldehyde, ethylbenzene, xylene and toulene) were measured inside of several nail salons. The study then went a step further and linked the presence of toxic chemicals in salons with self-reported adverse health symptoms of salon workers.
