New research from the West Virginia University School of Medicine has confirmed other research finding that Bisphenol A (BPA) – found among various plastics and resins in consumer goods – may lead or contribute to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Traditional toxicology relies on archaic methods that focus on the short term while ignoring the long term effects of repeated small doses over time
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).
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
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.
New research from New York State University has confirmed a link exists between Bisphenol A (BPA) and obesity. But there are a few caveats that reveal an even bigger link exposed in other research: The combination of sugary sodas in canned and plastic containers.
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.
Nursing school researchers have determined that a majority of mothers' breastmilk and the urine of low-exposure babies contain the hormone disruptor bisphenol A (BPA).
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
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 .
Keeping your receipts may make good financial sense, but it can seriously harm your health.
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?
Environmental contaminants are causing decreased sperm production among men, with couples having difficulty conceiving and children being born with numerous health concerns
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.
If you’ve ever wondered where all the alpha males have gone, the interaction between chemistry and biology may offer a clue.
Researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have concluded that BPA and seven other toxins are building up within the bodies of U.S. children according to blood and urine studies.
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!
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?
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.
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.
New research has confirmed that exposure to Bisphenol A (BPA) – a well-known endocrine disruptor – through mothers' breast milk is widespread.
Have you ever wondered where that funny taste and/or smell comes from when you take a drink of water out of the garden hose? Most likely, it comes from toxins in the lining of the garden hose and its fittings.
BPA-lined Containers Hike Blood Pressure - Immediately A recent study finds drinking from BPA-lined containers can immediately raise ones blood pressure. Did you notice the word 'immediately'?
