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.
- Food, for example soy produces large amounts of estrogen when digested.
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.
