Packaged food eaters beware: here's a hint of just a scant few of the items that lurk beneath the label in your packaged food products. And for those who are trying to get your friends and family off of packaged foods and on to a whole foods lifestyle, here's some more ammunition!
Plastic revolutionized the world, but it did so with consequences. In recent years, more attention has been given to the potential dangers of plastic to human health and the environment. However, plastic remains one of the most widely used materials for everything from packaging to construction to consumer goods to manufacturing
Could bacteria and related microbes, widely believed to be a primary cause of disease, explain how we are capable of surviving through the self-created chemical nightmare of industrialized society?
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
Hormones and/or hormone-mimicking chemicals are omnipresent environmental contaminants. Already found in places as varied as our teeth (dental sealant) to our paper products (receipts, money), our meat to our canned foods, new research now indicates that even fresh, whole vegetables and fruits are no longer immune to this growing biological and chemical threat.
A new study reveals just how profoundly misled we are about Bisphenol A and its analogs: they are at least 100x more toxic than we previously imagined.
As we reported on back in June of last year in an exposé titled, Consumer Alert: BPA-Free Goods Still Contain Toxin Bisphenol, the petrochemical bisphenol A (BPA), a ubiquitous ingredient in thousands of consumer products and which has been linked to a wide range of serious adverse health effects, has been removed by many ostensibly scrupulous manufacturers in favor of another equally toxic analog in the same chemical class, known as bisphenol S (BPS).
Environmental contaminants are causing decreased sperm production among men, with couples having difficulty conceiving and children being born with numerous health concerns
It appears that food, air, water, power, pets, your physiology and physical whereabouts, are targets for control. Think about it. We have already unknowingly eaten GM food, been victims of toxic environmental disasters, unleashed depleted uranium upon the earth, yet we sit on the sidelines watching total control unfold.
Just when you thought it was safe to buy "BPA-free" products, manufacturers flood the marketplace with an alphabet soup of toxic bisphenols.
Boosting testosterone is becoming all the rage today, but unless you activate your body's innate ability to do it naturally there are some very serious side effects that could get in the way of your health
You're likely already aware that global plastic pollution has reached an all-time high, but did you know you're eating it, too? Research concludes that, on average, you're consuming a credit card's worth of plastic each week
Effective and safe treatments for ovarian cancer simply do not exist today within conventional medical practice. However, promising research indicates that flaxseed and at least 30 other natural substances do have potent anti-ovarian cancer properties
You know about the dangers of Bisphenol A (BPA), and hopefully Bisphenol S (BPS), but did you know that there are at least 8 toxic bisphenols in our food supply, with 75% of food samples from the US tested showing significant levels of these ubiquitous poisons?
The Environmental Protection Agency recently removed Bisphenol A from a list of "chemicals of concern" for proposed regulations, once again siding with an increasingly deregulated chemical industry .
According to a recent study’s findings, 93 percent of bottled water showed signs of microplastic contamination averaging 10.4 large (> 100 um) microplastic particles per liter of bottled water. The tests included brands like Evian, Aquafina, and Dasani.
Frankly, there is a frightening coincidence glaring at us, right before our eyes. Obesity has become pandemic in the past 30 years, paralleling the use of genetic engineering, and increased pesticide use. More than 60% of Americans are overweight, and obesity has doubled in the past 20 years globally. Our intestines may be colonized with new microbes, making us very sick. Something is seriously wrong here and has not been seen before.
Nearly 200 Cans Analyzed from Campbell’s, Del Monte, General Mills, Kroger, Albertsons and More contain toxic BPA.
Obesity is developing at an alarming rate even in developing countries. Maybe the global obesity epidemic has nothing to do with eating too much food. Research suggests the problem may be rooted in your food’s packaging.
If you’ve ever wondered where all the alpha males have gone, the interaction between chemistry and biology may offer a clue.
It looks like this NZ food bill will pave the way to reduce the plant diversity and small owner operations in New Zealand, for example by way of controlling the legality of seed saving and trading
Breaking new research indicates that manufacturers throughout the world who were using the toxic hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A (BPA), may have simply switched to an equally toxic analogue in the same bisphenol chemical class known as bisphenol S (BPS), to evade regulatory oversight and trick consumers with their misleading "BPA-FREE!" labels....
Traditional toxicology relies on archaic methods that focus on the short term while ignoring the long term effects of repeated small doses over time
Despite known negative effects of BPA and BPS in plastic, these toxic chemicals are still prevalent in many home products and food items. BPA and BPS exposure is linked with reproductive disorders, lowered cognitive function, behavioral problems in children and increased oxidative stress, among other health disorders. Reducing your exposure to these harmful chemicals is vital to lowering your risk of serious diseases and improving the health of your family
