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.
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.
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.
New research examining BPA has discovered that its ability to trigger allergic asthma in some people could last for as long as three generations.
A new scientific study has demonstrated that living in neighborhoods with high risks of lead exposure is associated with differences in brain structure and cognitive performance in some children and adolescents.
The results of a new scientific study researching potential health effects to the industrialized food additive BPS (BPA’s counterpart replacement for lining food and beverage containers in the U.S. food supply) BPS can hinder heart function within minutes of a single exposure.
A new scientific study has revealed the process by which the common phthalate chemical DEHP (used to make plastic flexible) triggers birth defects, miscarriage and male infertility.
Additive laden, highly processed foods–or more accurately, “non-food foods” where the amount of synthetic or industrialized chemical additives significantly outweigh the amount of natural whole food ingredients–have once again been linked with rising U.S. obesity and disease rates.
Scientists have found a decrease in fine-motor functioning among girls following mothers’ exposure to phthalate chemical metabolites during pregnancy.
Using new direct testing methods, scientific experts on the chemical BPA have made a new discovery: Previous estimates of the levels of BPA consumers are exposed to each day have been based on flawed, inaccurate testing methods. The previous measurements and estimates that have been used by regulatory agencies–including the FDA**–have underestimated exposure levels by as much as 44 times. With new, more advanced methods*** scientists are now able to see that previous estimates of exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical are far greater than regulators and legislators believed when establishing guidelines for what is “safe” exposure levels for U.S. children and adults.
