BPA-Free food containers are coated with BPS–a synthetic chemical that is just as dangerous to health and well-being as BPA. More specifically, researchers have linked BPS (aka the BPA-Free chemical) with serious problems for the developing brain.
A new first of its kind study suggests infants who are exposed to cleaning products are more likely to develop asthma and wheeze later in life than their unexposed counterparts.
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.
The results of a new scientific study demonstrated that many popular home water filtration systems are not filtering out toxic PFAS chemicals.
Acetaminophen, the super common and popular pain killer in the U.S., may get blacklisted as a carcinogen in the state of California.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Drug Evaluation and Research division has just completed their research on sunscreen chemicals. Their findings: Seven of the most commonly used chemicals in sunscreen (including known endocrine disrupting chemicals) are, in fact, absorbed by the skin and enter the bloodstream–and when they do, they exceed safety thresholds.
New research findings have revealed a dirty secret in this widely used industrialized food additive: Soybean oil can not only lead to obesity and diabetes in some people (something that has been suspected for some time), but it also appears to have the potential to trigger neurological problems–which could potentially lead to conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression.
There are distressing results from a new scientific study focusing on the adverse health effects from chemicals commonly found in cosmetics and personal care products: At least two of these chemicals have now been shown to damage the DNA of breast cells–even at low doses.
New research examining BPA has discovered that its ability to trigger allergic asthma in some people could last for as long as three generations.
The results of a new scientific study researching potential health effects to the industrialized food additive BPS (BPA’s counterpart replacement for lining food and beverage containers in the U.S. food supply) BPS can hinder heart function within minutes of a single exposure.
