Additive laden, highly processed foods–or more accurately, “non-food foods” where the amount of synthetic or industrialized chemical additives significantly outweigh the amount of natural whole food ingredients–have once again been linked with rising U.S. obesity and disease rates.
Scientists have found a decrease in fine-motor functioning among girls following mothers’ exposure to phthalate chemical metabolites during pregnancy.
Using new direct testing methods, scientific experts on the chemical BPA have made a new discovery: Previous estimates of the levels of BPA consumers are exposed to each day have been based on flawed, inaccurate testing methods. The previous measurements and estimates that have been used by regulatory agencies–including the FDA**–have underestimated exposure levels by as much as 44 times. With new, more advanced methods*** scientists are now able to see that previous estimates of exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical are far greater than regulators and legislators believed when establishing guidelines for what is “safe” exposure levels for U.S. children and adults.
The results of a scientific study on weight gain demonstrate that it is harder for adults today to maintain the same weight as those 20 to 30 years ago did, even at the same levels of food intake and exercise. In other words, people today who eat and exercise the same amount as people 20 years ago, are still fatter–and additives in food and prescription drugs may be the culprit.
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.
Public officials in Colorado acknowledge that fracking can harm public health based on new scientific study results.
A new study has discovered that approximately 95 percent of baby food products contain traces of heavy metals, including arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury. Heavy metals are a source of neuro-developmental harm.
New research has confirmed that eating out and eating processed foods are linked with higher levels of toxic chemical PFAS in your blood.
New research reveals that pregnant women exposed to higher levels of the commonly used chemical BPA are more likely to have children who suffer with wheezing and poorer lung function.
New study reveals that popular spice turmeric is being adulterated with lead, a potent neurotoxin.
