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.
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.
A new medical science study reveals that phthalates leaching into the bloodstream from plastic medical equipment appears to contribute or trigger arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms) in vulnerable patients.
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.
A new study has replicated previous findings demonstrating there are toxic levels of carcinogenic chemicals in nail salons and in some cases the toxic levels can be higher than those found in auto garages and oil refineries. The study examined levels of chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) inside the air of nail salons. More specifically, the chemicals that are commonly found in nail products (benzene, formaldehyde, ethylbenzene, xylene and toulene) were measured inside of several nail salons. The study then went a step further and linked the presence of toxic chemicals in salons with self-reported adverse health symptoms of salon workers.
Scientists in charge of a novel wristband study that spanned three continents detected chemical exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs), flame retardants and phthalates in adults and children. Previous studies have indicated the potential for adverse health-related outcomes linked with these chemicals.
