The results of a new study reveal that toxic chemicals known as PFAS have been found in all 50 samples of breast milk tested–at levels nearly 2,000 times what is considered safe in drinking water.
Some hand sanitizers have been recalled for containing the toxic chemical methanol. Additionally, an independent pharmacy and lab has petitioned the FDA to recall other hand sanitizers after a study found unacceptable levels of benzene in several brands of hand sanitizers.
In May 2021 the European Food Safety Association (EFSA) announced that food dye additive “titanium dioxide” (aka the “white” nanoparticle food coloring *) is no longer considered safe when used as a food additive.
According to documents obtained by researchers, Big Chemical companies DuPont and Daikin knew the dangers of a PFAS chemical compound widely used in food packaging since 2010, but hid them from the public and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
According to a new study meat that is certified organic is less likely to be contaminated with bacteria that can sicken people compared to conventionally produced meat.
Today many people are exposed to a wide range of toxins, such as ozone, nanoparticles, microplastics, household cleaning agents, pesticides, enzymes, emulsifiers, fine dust, exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke and countless chemicals in the air, food and water–all of which are now believed by scientists to harm the epithelial barrier and are subsequently responsible for up to two billion chronic, non-infectious diseases including allergic conditions, inflammatory bowel disorders, celiac disease and even Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorders and chronic depression.
A growing number of research scientists are recognizing a possible link between certain synthetic and industrialized chemicals in our food, products and environment and weight gain/obesity.
The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) has completed a comprehensive investigative report and concluded that synthetic dyes used in numerous processed foods and drinks can negatively affect attention and activity in children.
Scientists have uncovered a link between living near fracking activity and an increased risk for heart attacks.
