The toxins from indoor and outdoor air pollution can trigger eye infections, dry eye disease, eye irritation, burning and itching and vision problems, including blurry vision. This is nothing to take lightly. Scientific studies have confirmed that if exposure to toxic air is prolonged it has the potential to cause chronic and even serious eye diseases like glaucoma.
The results from a long-term study revealed a significant link between air pollution and an increased risk of hospital admissions for several neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementia-related conditions.
The results of new scientific lab testing reveal that high levels of microplastic particles are released from baby bottles during formula preparation. That means that infants may ingest unwanted microplastics along with their formula.
A new study reveals that radiation levels downwind of fracking sites tend to be significantly higher than other surrounding areas, posing a potential health risk to nearby residents.
New study finds no observable effects of the phthalate-replacement chemical DINCH on reproductive hormones.
To increase screening of chemical intolerance, researchers have developed and validated a three-question survey that can be incorporated into patient visits within a minute.
New research has demonstrated that it is possible to spray sanitizing chemicals (levulinic acid and sodium dodecyl sulfate, aka sodium lauryl sulfate) to produce preharvest–while it is still in the fields.
Findings from a new scientific study suggest a link between eating a diet of highly processed food–and the synthetic and industrialized chemicals it contains–and acceleration of the aging process.
The results of a new study revealed concentrations of atrazine (an herbicide), DEP (an endocrine disrupting chemical from the phthalate family found in our plastics), NPE ( a chemical commonly used in processed food packaging) and endocrine-disrupting triclosan* (an antibacterial/antifungal chemical used as a pesticide and found in consumer products such as toothpaste, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, some versions of soaps including dish-washing liquids and laundry detergents, hand creams and toys) in the bodies of stranded whales and dolphins.
Scientists conducting a new research study have just released some disturbing results: Exposure to mobile phone light at night raises risk of colon (bowel) cancer. The study revealed that LED “blue light” emitted by our electronic devices (that is, exposure to artificial light-at-night (ALAN) and particularly blue light spectrum) can worsen health problems–including increasing the risk for colon cancer by as much as 60 percent.
