Toxic Exposure Begins in the Womb
In 2004 the Environmental Working Group (EWG) tested cord blood from 10 Americans. One sample of blood was taken from each person
and 413 chemicals where tested. 287 toxic chemicals where found across the group (about 200 per person). They found consumer products
ingredients such as scotch guard, stain master, teflon, flame retardants, pesticides from fruits & vegetables; toxic heavy metals;
waste byproducts such as dioxins, furans, volatile organic compounds (VOCs); and industrial chemicals and pesticides that were banned 30 years ago.
Among these toxic chemicals where substances that have been shown to be associated in laboratory studies done in people with cancer
in lab studies in people, birth defects, hormone disruption, infertility, immune sx disruptors, and neurotoxins. This video discusses how even
low-doses of a chemical substance can have a substantial effect on our bodies. Chemicals are not tested to make sure they don't have effects in
Think twice about water delivery
Check out your water cooler. Most are made from polycarbonate plastic with a number 7 recycle symbol
on it. If this is the case then your water cooler contains Bisphenol A (BPA). BPA is a hormone
disrubtor also found in the lining of canned foods along with other hard plastics such as baby
bottles, sippy cups, sports water bottles and more.
Recently in Israel an exposee was done on the television secretely video taping the storage facilities
of one of the largest bottled water companies, Mei Eden (מי עדן). The water bottles for delivery were
not kept in a cool place, but rather are kept and allowed to heat up. When these bottles heat up
they leech more bisphenol A into the water than if the water was just sitting there normally (where
it would leech anyhow).
Are Plastic Baby Bottles Harmful?
North American environmental and health groups released a paper recently showing that many
major-brand baby bottles leach bisphenol A, and is now calling for a ban on the use of the compound —
used to make polycarbonate plastic — in food and beverage containers.
Bisphenol A is a hormone disruptor. Studies have linked low-dose BPA exposure with such effects as:
permanent changes to genital tract; increase prostate weight; decline in testosterone; breast cells
predisposed to cancer; prostate cells more sensitive to hormones and cancer; and hyperactivity.
Ban on Bisphenol A Polycarbonate Bottles in Canada?
Canada is the first country in the world to complete a risk assessment of bisphenol A and to initiate
a 60 day public comment period on whether to ban the importation, sale and advertising of polycarbonate
baby bottles which contain bisphenol A (hard plastic bottles with a number 7 in the centre of the recycling
symbol on the bottom).
