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.
A new scientific study has revealed several endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) present in infants.
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.
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.
Bill S.20 would restrict PFAS — perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl — in consumer products sold in Vermont. It also includes restrictions on phthalates and bisphenols.
According to the 2021 rating report card of retailers, a dozen major companies earned an “F” for failing to publicly address the growing problem of toxic chemicals that may be in the products they sell to consumers.
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.
Just touching store receipts and boarding passes can be dangerous to your health. A rapidly growing body of scientific evidence strongly suggests that commonly used thermal paper chemical BPS, like its predecessor BPA, disrupts hormones and harms reproductive, developmental, metabolic and cardiovascular health.
