There is evidence suggesting that the compost-based, eco-friendly food packaging used by some carryout restaurants and delis contain toxic PFAS chemicals which have been demonstrated to leach into the food–and therefore into the consumer’s body.
Scientists have discovered that the new replacement chemicals for BPA (bisphenol A) the food industry is now using, BPS (bisphenol S) and BPF (bispheol F) also act as hormone disruptors and carry as much potential risk for serious adverse health outcomes as BPA. The researchers have already linked the new food container chemicals BPS and BPF to child and teen obesity.
Yet another study is reporting an alarming increase in the number of young people diagnosed with colon cancer. There are likely multiple contributing factors but here are two strong suspects…
Flawed governmental policies and oversight are to blame for failures to protect human and environmental health from toxic chemicals, argue scientists.
New study reports women exposed to common paint chemicals at work are more likely to have a child with autism spectrum disorder.
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.
