Yet another new scientific study has confirmed that toxic, endocrine-disrupting chemicals in our personal care products, food, home care products and general environment may be behind the dramatic drop in sperm counts worldwide.
Scientific researchers have found that women who frequently use hair straightening products are more than twice as likely to go on to develop uterine cancer as women who do not use these products.
A new scientific study has revealed several endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) present in infants.
A new scientific study has revealed that breast milk is often contaminated by environmental pollutants. Some of the toxins uncovered in breast milk can disrupt the hormonal balance, brain development, and establishment of the gut microbiome in the infant.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has finally decided to take another look at the safety of allowing food manufacturers to inject BPA (bisphenol-A) into consumers food containers. The chemical leaches from the containers like cans and plastic bottles into our food. That much scientists have known for a very long time. And BPA is an endocrine disruptor linked with myriad of very serious health outcomes–that too we have known for a long time. Additionally, it takes very little BPA inside food containers to raise the risk of serious health problems.
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.
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 new scientific study have demonstrated that exposure to plastic-associated chemicals such as phthalates can increase the risk of high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
Scientists have now found that BPA disrupts the development of the brain’s sleep center.
Endocrine disrupting chemical BPA (bisphenol A) and BPS (aka, BPA-Free; bisphenol S) which allows manufacturers to now list their food and drink containers and other products* as “BPA-Free” on the labels, is causing concerns among scientists that these chemicals could “seriously damage” human brains.
