Researchers examining the effects of pregnant women exposed to toxic chemicals in their homes have substantiated evidence linking exposure to phthalates to altered cognitive outcomes in their infants.
A new study revealed 64 percent of land used for agriculture and food crops is at risk of pesticide pollution.
Synthetic Blue Dye (#1 and #2) has a long history of holding the possibility of pernicious outcomes for some people when used in medicines, hospital pharmaceuticals and food. But all of that may be a thing of the past because scientists have uncovered a natural alternative to artificial blue food coloring in cabbage.
Results of a new study reveal that women with higher levels of phthalates in their system during pregnancy were most likely to suffer from postpartum depression.
Bill S.20 would restrict PFAS — perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl — in consumer products sold in Vermont. It also includes restrictions on phthalates and bisphenols.
A scientific study has demonstrated that men who have been exposed in utero to products known to contain endocrine disrupting chemicals (Phthalates and pesticides in particular) are twice more likely to have semen volume and total sperm count per ejaculation below the reference values set by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Scientists heading up a large, longitudinal, global study have found a link between eating processed meat and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and death.
The latest published scientific study has again found that expectant women are more likely to give birth early if they have high blood levels of a chemical used in flame retardants compared with those who have limited exposure.
The results of a nine-month investigation reveal that millions of people in the U.S. continue to face serious water quality problems because of contamination, deteriorating infrastructure, and inadequate treatment at water plants. Included in that contamination were what has been called “alarming levels” of toxic PFAS “forever chemicals”, lead and arsenic.
New scientific research has linked autism to chemicals commonly found in U.S. household products, personal care products and food: PCBs, Phthalates, Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Pesticides. More specifically, the study found that women who are exposed to these toxic chemicals while pregnant are more likely to have autistic children.
