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.
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals Discovered in Infants (Again)
A new scientific study has revealed several endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) present in infants.
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.
Restrict PFAS and Other Chemicals of Concern, says Vermont Senate
Bill S.20 would restrict PFAS — perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl — in consumer products sold in Vermont. It also includes restrictions on phthalates and bisphenols.
BPA-Free? More Scientists find that BPA Substitutes are Worse
Researchers again report that BPA substitutes (BPS and BPF) are as bad or worse than BPA. In the latest study, prenatal exposure for the BPA-substitute chemical BPF was associated with impaired cognitive development in children.
Lower IQ Linked with Consumer Product Chemical Exposure during Pregnancy
A new study found that exposure during the first trimester of pregnancy to mixtures of suspected endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in consumer products is related to lower IQ in children by age 7.
Child-Teen Obesity Linked to Food Container Chemicals: Study
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.
