High level of Female Hormones?

According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIEHS, which is part of the National Institute of Health of the US government:

  • We come in contact very frequently with chemicals endocrine disruptors that are chemicals.
  • That may have an effect and interfere with the endocrine system in our body.
  • And produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological and immune system effects in our bodies.

Some man-made and natural substances, found in the most common household products contain endocrine disruptors and hormone-binding proteins, that generate large amounts of estrogen and hormonal imbalances to men, are:

  • Plastic bottles.
  • Inner lining of food cans.
  • Detergents.
  • Flame-retardants.
  • Food, for example soy produces large amounts of estrogen when digested.
  • Toys.
  • Cosmetics.
  • Deodorants.
  • Toothpaste.
  • Pesticides.

These man-made and natural substances, called xeno-estrogen (chemical compounds sources), phytoestrogens (plant sources), and other forms of estrogen including those derived from metal come from:

  • PVC (polyvinyl chloride), used to make plastics such as polyvinyl chloride, a type of phthalate chemical group of substances.
  • BPA (Bisphenol-A) found in the inner lining of canned foods.
  • Parabens are chemicals used in the personal care, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries to increase shelf life in these products.
  • Diethylstilbestrol (the synthetic estrogen DES)
  • Dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, long known endocrine disruptors
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) known as endocrine disruptors
  • DDT and other types of insecticides and pesticides
  • Flouride found in toothpaste, mouthwash liquids and other personal care products.
  • Most types of food additives to increase shelf life
  • Chemical substances that are endocrine disruptors and produce estrogen are called Nonylphenol ethoxylates.
  • Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) used to manufacture consumer food packaging and some children products
  • Chemical compounds fed to cattle, pork, chicken and farmed seafood to increase the rate of weight gain and desired size generate faster sales.
