NY Times reported today the findings of a 15-year study of young girls in Denmark, which immediately sent me into a tizzy.
The average age of
breast development has fallen by a full year compared to girls studied
in the early 1990s, as reported in the this months Pediatric Journal.
The culprit? Chemicals.
Chemicals that "mimic estrogen"
Chemicals that are known to cause cancer.
Chemicals that screw up the endocrine system of human beings.
Kinda like the chemicals that were used to make that plastic water bottle you are sucking out of right now. And the lunch you nuked in the microwave today. The one that is it is found in the lining of nearly every soft drink and canned
food product. Oh, and that makeup slathered on your face, don't even get me started.
Hmmm…could this be why breast cancer has gone through the roof? And the reason why girls are 9 feet tall these days?
"The concern is that early puberty is linked with higher breast cancer risk in adulthood," the study revealed.
Well, la-dee-fricken-da….what an amazing finding! Are we insane? Who the hell approves this stuff?
Shouldn't the warning bells go off when you are packing Coca-Cola into bottles made with "estrogen-like-cancer-causing" materials?
Get 'em out
Pump out production
Keep this wheel-a-turning.
Chemical paranoia has been one of my hobbies for a while now, having kids does that to you. We manage to afford non-nuclear milk, eggs, and sometimes meat. Strawberries are organic only, and our lawn is a dandelion field.
Hopefully this got you thinking about how you can preserve your well being in this oh-so- lovely-world we live in.
