Lately there has been an alarming amount of thyroid problems around the world... and many people are not understanding the role of plastics in this situation... plus other challenges that are coming up.
Plastics contain “Phthalates” which are in flooring, paint, toys, cleaning products, shower curtains, packaging, raincoats... and most of the plastic in the world. These chemicals have a impact on our endocrine system and especially our thyroid gland. But they also impact our ovaries and testicles and every other endocrine gland in the body including our pituitary gland.
These chemicals have been limited... but they have not been taken off the market, they are found in almost every plastic.
Did you know that every cell in our body contains plastic? Did you know that every cell in every fish in the ocean contains plastic? It’s True! We have created a plastic world! And our plastic has created undersea graveyards of plastic that a exist in almost every ocean on the planet... the largest of these being in the Pacific Ocean... it’s larger than the state of Texas.
Also BPA plastics are found in plastics water containers and canned food liners and much more. And both of these plastics are creating havoc in our bodies. First of all causing possible thyroid tumors, and changes in thyroid function... and secondly causing the feminization of male children.
Not only are animals ingesting plastics and dying like birds, sea turtles, whales, and other sea creatures... plastics are having a huge impact on our bodies.
A study was done at the University of Michigan - a very large scale study showing these two chemicals are causing thyroid changes. Here is a link to a downloadable MP3 audio of a talk given by Professor John Meeker at the University of Michigan talking about all the problems connected to plastics and thyroid problems. - http://www.ns.umich.edu/podcast/science/meeker_jul_11.mp3
Also there have been many articles on the feminization of males being caused by plastics... and the decrease in male fertility too (sperm counts have been going down in males all over the world over the last few decades). Plastics in the body change into Xenoestrogen that plays havoc with our endocrine system and create cancer.
In fact in China workers in plastic plants who were saturated with plastics had very lower sperm counts. And studies by Dr. De-Kum Li at Kaiser Permanente Research Division showed that studies with plastics and animals showed the same results.
Between 1979 and 1987 mens sperm counts went down over 27 percent. Plus cancer testicular cancer increase dramatically at the same time. Together with hormones in drinking water that is not filtered out caused by birth control pills, plastics all around us, meat being full of hormones that mimic estrogen, pesticides that mimic estrogen, GMO foods that are full of pesticides... and much more... and all over the world fish are becoming feminised too.
Here is a link to an article on the BBC that talks about - “Plastic Chemicals Feminise Boys” - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8361863.stm and here is another article - “Chemicals used in plastics feminise the brains of little boys so that they avoid rough and tumble games” - see link - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1228095/Toxins-plastics-fem...
These same toxic elements are responsible for breast cancer and other cancers of the body... we are causing amazing harm to the natural workings of the balance of the world, our bodies, and the interplay of every organism on the planet.
How do we solve this challenge - Get rid of plastics in general, they are killing us and causing harm to the environment. Eat organic, wild range foods, pesticide free, and stop all GMO foods. And find ways to eliminate hormones from our drinking water with technology. We need to shift to cotton and other natural fabrics because petroleum based fabrics contribute to the problem.
Plus we must drink water from glass bottles, find paints that are plastic free, go back to basics and find natural ways of living with the environment that creates a positive impact and creates a better world.
Call your congressman, call your senator, call the president, and let them all know we need to change and live simply!
But you can start right now... in your own home.
We can do this!
