Scientific studies have demonstrated that PFAS is a toxic chemical and numerous adverse health consequences have been linked to it including some kinds of cancers (especially breast, testicular and prostate cancers), liver problems, heart disease, hormonal disruption, low birth weight and numerous other health problems including thyroid problems, high cholesterol, kidney problems, prostate problems and fertility problems. Now, another adverse health consequence has been added to that list: tooth decay in children.
New research examining BPA has discovered that its ability to trigger allergic asthma in some people could last for as long as three generations.
A new scientific study has revealed the process by which the common phthalate chemical DEHP (used to make plastic flexible) triggers birth defects, miscarriage and male infertility.
New research has confirmed that eating out and eating processed foods are linked with higher levels of toxic chemical PFAS in your blood.
Scientists are calling on corporations and regulators to stop unnecessarily exposing the public to potentially deleterious chemicals like PFAS.
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.
Another state has filed a lawsuit against Big Chemical companies 3M, Dupont and others over toxic chemicals used in food packaging and other products that have ended up contaminating the public drinking water.
Styrofoam containers are harmful to humans, animals and the environment. Scientific research has demonstrated that the toxic chemicals (Benzene and Styrene) in Styrofoam (polystyrene) leach into our food (this is especially true with hot drinks and foods and red wine) where they act as neurotoxins adversely affecting the brain and nervous system. Additionally, Styrofoam cannot be recycled and is accumulating in landfills where it breaks down leaving its toxic chemicals to harm wildlife, marine life and the environment.
Now one state has decided to take action to reduce the amount of Styrofoam on the planet. Maine has just become the first U.S. state to officially ban Styrofoam containers outright.
OK, here are those PFAS chemicals (perfluoroalkyl/polyfluoroalkyl substances) rearing their ugly little heads again. This time it is the newer … More
