NIH research reveals that women who use permanent hair dye and chemical hair straighteners have a higher risk of developing breast cancer than women who don’t use these products.
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.
Chemicals in air pollution linked with serious eye disease: Living in a more polluted area is associated with a greater likelihood of having glaucoma, a debilitating eye condition that can cause blindness.
The results of a new pilot study have confirmed what many of us having been saying for decades: Highly processed foods are damaging to health and well-being.

New case study findings have strengthened the link between talcum powder, asbestos (which can be co-mingled with talc due to mining processes) and mesothelioma–a deadly cancer of the lining of organs (most often occurring in the lining around the lungs or the abdomen).
Public officials in Colorado acknowledge that fracking can harm public health based on new scientific study results.
New research has confirmed that eating out and eating processed foods are linked with higher levels of toxic chemical PFAS in your blood.
If you clean with bleach you might want to rethink that practice. Researchers have now discovered that bleach fumes, in combination with light and a citrus compound found in many household products, can form airborne particles that might be harmful when inhaled by pets or people.
New scientific research has demonstrated that exposure to dioxin, a common toxic chemical in industrial pollution, during pregnancy can harm the immune system of offspring and that this injury is passed along to subsequent generations, weakening the body’s defenses against infections such as the influenza virus. Exposure to dioxin in pregnancy occurs primarily in the food humans eat.
A new study conducted at the Mayo Clinic provides evidence that lung injuries from vaping is most likely caused by direct toxicity or tissue damage from noxious chemical fumes.
