Healthy Living – WHO Warns Against Everyday Chemicals, Hormone Disrupters

Healthy Living:
Bisphenol-A and Phthalates Have Some Frightening Effects

Healthy Living | Dangerous Household Chemicals

The World Health Organization is not your run of the mill little group advocating for healthy living. They are a “big deal”, and when they issue a report it’s usually serious stuff. Yeah, they have ties to “Big Pharma” worldwide that some of us believe are too close and cozy, but still, they are an important group and represent, in many cases, the “cutting edge” of science.

The WHO has recently released a report that should be important information for anyone interested in healthy living … and how to pull that off in today’s polluted environment where we deal not only with pollutants from our waste and trash, but from chemical pollutants in the products we use daily in our homes.

The WHO reports that many products we use, and have used for decades, in our homes, are endochrine disruptors (EDC’s). Endochrine disruptors affect the production and regulation of hormones in the body. This type of chemical intrusion can cause some serious and frightening effects in our bodies, especially in those of developing children. This ties in with the report we posted just the other day regarding the FDA and the chemical Triclosan. This report is substantiating evidence for the fears of that chemical … but the report goes much further and includes EDC’s such as biospheol-A and phthalates, which are also some fearsome adversaries to healthy living.

Here’s a report from Elizabeth Renter at “Natural News” about the WHO’s findings and their possible consequences:

WHO Warns Against Everyday Chemicals, Hormone Disrupters

Though the WHO is far from sincere and as helpful as it should be, the organization released an insightful report that links chemicals we all use, touch, and breathe with hormone disrupting effects. According to the report, The State of the Science of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals, endocrine disruptors (EDCs) can occur naturally, but those synthetic varieties are the ones that we should be most worried about.
