A new study has revealed that Black and Hispanic hair salon stylists may be at increased risk due to higher levels of various endocrine-disrupting chemicals in their urine.
Chemicals in Food and Products Causing Sperm Counts to Crash: Scientists
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.
Hair Straightening Chemicals Increase Risk for Uterine Cancer: Study
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.
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals Discovered in Infants (Again)
A new scientific study has revealed several endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) present in infants.
Harmful Chemical Toxins Found in Breast Milk: Study
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.
FDA Revisits Safety of BPA
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.
Cancer-causing Chemicals Leaching into Food from Packaging: Scientists
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.
BPA can Harm Brain Development of Unborn Babies: Study
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.
Phthalate Chemicals Linked with High Cholesterol and Heart Disease: Study
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.
Even Low Levels of BPA Harms Developing Brain’s Sleep Center: Study
Scientists have now found that BPA disrupts the development of the brain’s sleep center.
