Chemicals in our Lives

I spend quite a bit of time at the gym where there are 12 television screens with mostly different programs on each one.  The main thing I noticed is that a majority of the commercials are for chemicals. Either it is a drug, a cleaning product for the body or the house, a food or drink loaded with sugar, artificial sweeteners and chemicals or for lawyers suing for injury from one of the toxic drugs.

 

Warnings from a Flabby Mouse  from the New York Times is a great article about the chemicals in our lives and the related issues as a result of  them.

Nicholas D. Kristof says, “That experiment is one of a growing number of peer-reviewed scientific studies suggesting that one factor in the industrialized world’s obesity epidemic (along with Twinkies, soda and television) may be endocrine-disrupting chemicals.”

 

Here is an excellent article by DR.  Judy Roth that explains xenoestrogens in depth.  What are they and what to do about it and why you have to.
