Chemical Toxins Destroy Our Health
More and more serious health issues are linked to chemical exposure. These problems include chemicals that we face every day, in nearly every environment.
- NBC News reported on the link between early menopause in women and 15 specific chemicals.
- CBS reported a story about a link between chemicals in plastic containers and birth defects in boys’ genitals.
- Scientific American reported on the level of chemicals found in the blood from several newborns’ umbilical chords. Including the very harmful BPA found in many bottled water containers.

in your environment and ways to best avoid what is

Consider these serious conditions that have been linked to common environmental chemicals.
“Their 2006 review identified five widely used industrial chemicals as “developmental neurotoxins.” Such chemicals can contribute to developmental brain disorders such as autism. The five were lead, methyl-mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic and toluene.” (source: Autism Speaks, Feb. 2014)
“The greatest concern is the large numbers of children who are affected by toxic damage to brain development in the absence of a formal diagnosis,” said Philippe Grandjean, adjunct professor of environmental health at HSPH.
“They suffer reduced attention span, delayed development and poor school performance. Industrial chemicals are emerging as likely cause.” (source: Harvard School of Public Health/Harvard Gazette, Feb. 2014)
Researchers have begun to find links between increased risk of thyroid disease and exposure to certain chemicals, especially among women. “Pesticide Use and Thyroid Disease among Women in the Agricultural Health Study,” published in the American Journal of Epidemiology in 2002, found that Iowa and North Carolina women married to men using such pesticides as aldrin, DDT and lindane were at much higher risk of developing thyroid disease than women in non-agricultural areas.

“Women with the highest levels of these chemicals in their bodies went through menopause anywhere between two and four years earlier than women with the lowest levels, the team at Washington University in St. Louis found.” (source: NBC News, Jan. 2015)
Genital Deformation in Boys
“The study, which included more than 700 infants in four U.S. cities, is the largest of its kind to date. It confirms earlier findings in humans and animals that exposure to certain types of chemicals called phthalates may lead to changes in the way the male reproductive tract develops, said Dr. Russ Hauser, an epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health, who was not involved in the new study.” (source: Live Science, Feb. 2015)
“The report catalogues the growing evidence linking breast cancer to, among other factors, synthetic hormones in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and meat; pesticides in food; solvents in household cleaning products; BPA in food containers; flame retardants in furniture; and radiation from medical treatments.” (source: Breast Cancer Fund, Oct. 2010)
To name a few…
The overwhelming evidence of the relationship between everyday chemicals and serious health issues is frightening. Until we know how we’re being exposed, we can do nothing.
