Chemical poisoning is more common than you think: BPA levels in humans “dramatically underestimated,” warn scientists

The amount of toxic chemicals that scientists say we are exposed to is incredibly alarming, but it turns out those scary figures that have long been reported are actually wrong – and the real numbers are even higher. This is according to a study published in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology. The researchers in the … Continue reading Chemical poisoning is more common than you think: BPA levels in humans “dramatically underestimated,” warn scientists

Preservative in thousands of children’s food products found to damage immune system

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) published a paper recently that exposes a common food preservative for damaging the immune system. Tertiary butylhydroquinone, or TBHQ, is added to more than 1,250 food products, many of them marketed for children. The latest data shows that it suppresses immunity, which is especially concerning during a global “pandemic.” Published on March … Continue reading Preservative in thousands of children’s food products found to damage immune system

Cancer-causing chemical found in hand sanitizers made during the pandemic

Some hand sanitizers made to meet the surge in demand amid the coronavirus pandemic contain high levels of a cancer-causing chemical known as benzene, according to a study conducted by the online pharmacy, Valisure. Valisure analyzed 260 bottles of hand sanitizer across 168 brands in its laboratory in New Haven, Connecticut. The analysis showed that 44 … Continue reading Cancer-causing chemical found in hand sanitizers made during the pandemic

Scientists find 55 new environmental chemicals in pregnant women, newborns

Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) detected 109 chemicals in pregnant women and their newborn children, including 55 that have never before been found inside human bodies and 42 whose sources and uses remain unclear. Of the 55 chemicals, 37 are ones that researchers have little to no information on. Published recently in the journal Environmental Science and Technology, … Continue reading Scientists find 55 new environmental chemicals in pregnant women, newborns

US scientists detect MORE THAN 50 chemicals from everyday products in pregnant women and newborns

American scientists have detected more than a hundred chemicals in the blood of pregnant women and their children. Fifty-five of these substances had not been found in humans before, while 42 “mystery chemicals” had no sources or known uses. Based on their findings, the scientists posited that the children receive the chemicals through the mother’s placenta while … Continue reading US scientists detect MORE THAN 50 chemicals from everyday products in pregnant women and newborns

Top 10 foods and beverages you probably had NO IDEA contain chemical pesticides

Are you eating pest killer food? Would you eat a plate of food if someone accidentally sprayed the whole dish with bug killer or weed killer? Are you one of those people who think there’s no cure for cancer, while you consume pesticides all day long? If you don’t want to die like a roach in … Continue reading Top 10 foods and beverages you probably had NO IDEA contain chemical pesticides

Is the money you save buying GMO foods worth the price of cancer later in life?

Let’s take an inside look at just how much money you’re really saving on the food you buy that’s not organic or at least non-GMO certified. Then, we’ll compare those ‘savings’ to the co-pays for cancer treatments (if you even have coverage), loss of job time, hospital time, loss of time with your family, plus … Continue reading Is the money you save buying GMO foods worth the price of cancer later in life?

New research suggests BPA exposure leads to poor lung function in children

Prenatal exposure to the industrial chemical bisphenol A (BPA) may lead to poor lung function in children, according to a recent study presented at the European Respiratory Society International Congress held in Madrid. Researchers from Spain examined pregnant women’s phenol exposure and found that many of them had detectable BPA levels in their urine. Children born to women with higher BPA levels had a smaller … Continue reading New research suggests BPA exposure leads to poor lung function in children

Chemical reaction between pipe alloy and water disinfectants produce cancer-causing chromium in drinking water

Researchers from the University of California, Riverside have found that pipe alloy can react with residual water disinfectants to produce cancer-causing chromium that gets mixed in drinking water. In a study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, the researchers said that chemical reactions can change chromium in water pipes into a form that creates genetic mutations in cells. Pipe alloy plus disinfectants … Continue reading Chemical reaction between pipe alloy and water disinfectants produce cancer-causing chromium in drinking water
