The microbes that inhabit our bodies are influenced by what we eat, drink, breathe and absorb through our skin, and most of us are chronically exposed to natural and human-made environmental contaminants. In this study, scientists reviewed the research linking dozens of chemicals present in our personal care products, home care products, general environment and our food to changes in the gut microbiome and associated health challenges.
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 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.
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. More specifically, the new study has demonstrated that ultra-processed foods, which account for more than half of an average American’s daily calories, are linked to lower measures of cardiovascular health.
Two more large-scale studies have demonstrated a link between diets containing ultra/highly processed foods and heart disease, stroke risk and early death.
A new first of its kind study using endothelial stem cells has been published specifically linking some vape flavoring additives (esp. menthol and cinnamon) with potential heart problems.
Despite scientific evidence that it disrupts the human endocrine system, BPA continues to be a widely used chemical in the … More
