Roundup harms human endocrine system at levels allowed in drinking water, study shows

By Gutierrez: (NaturalNews) The blockbuster herbicide Roundup causes damage to the human endocrine system at levels that people could easily -- and legally -- be exposed to, according to a new study conducted by researchers from Flinders University in Australia. The researchers found that, in a laboratory study, Roundup killed cells responsible for producing progesterone in women, leading to a drop in levels of that hormone. The effects were seen at Roundup levels currently permitted in Australian drinking water, which 1 mg/L.

Chemical corporations buried report on endocrine disruptors to trade health for profit

By Wilson:(NaturalNews) A scientific report linking endocrine-disrupting chemicals to a myriad of health effects was reportedly blocked from being published by European Union (EU) officials, according to new investigation by The Guardian.

Endocrine disruptors are foreign substances found in many products, including pharmaceuticals, pesticides, plasticizers and cosmetics, that interfere with the human endocrine system. Disrupting the human endocrine system may result in developmental, reproductive, neurological and immunological complications.

EU lowers safety limit for endocrine-disrupting chemical BPA

By Huff: NaturalNews) For the first time in nearly 10 years, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has conducted a reassessment of the safety of bisphenol A (BPA), the plastics chemical that many a study has linked to endocrine disruption, behavioral disorders, heart disease and cancer. But rather than concur with this growing body of evidence showing the chemical's dangers, the group has declared BPA to be safe at current exposure levels for all age groups, including unborn babies.

BPA alternative in plastics disrupts brain cell growth, triggers hyperactivity

By Huff: (NaturalNews) In order to make plastics pliable and thermal receipt paper printable, certain chemicals have to be added to the mix that a growing body of research shows can damage the human endocrine system and cause other serious health damage. And some of the latest research on this subject warns that a popular alternative to bisphenol A (BPA), the infamous plastics chemical that manufacturers are actively phasing out of their products, may inhibit the development of brain cells and promote hyperactivity.

Nearly all EU scientists attacking new restrictions on toxic chemicals have financial ties to chemical industries


Following a bid to place tougher EU regulations on chemicals that act as hormone-altering endocrine disruptors, 18 scientists have published an editorial in 14 scientific journals ludicrously criticizing the move to protect consumers from these potentially harmful ingredients.
