The results of a new study suggest that children in households with frequent use of toxic chemicals in household cleaners were more likely to show delays in cognitive and language development by age two.
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 current scientific study indicate that the children of mothers exposed to flame retardants during their pregnancy have an increased risk for the type of cognitive deficits that lead to reading problems.
A new scientific study just released examined the extent of IQ loss linked to toxic chemicals over a 15 year period in the U.S. Flame retardants and pesticides, and to a lesser extent, heavy metals like lead, resulted in more than a million cases of intellectual disability in the United States between 2001 and 2016. As a result of significantly fewer restrictions, flame retardants and pesticides now represent the bulk of that cognitive loss.
A new scientific study has revealed the process by which the common phthalate chemical DEHP (used to make plastic flexible) triggers birth defects, miscarriage and male infertility.
Scientists have found a decrease in fine-motor functioning among girls following mothers’ exposure to phthalate chemical metabolites during pregnancy.
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.
