“Our research has shown that PFAS impact biological functions linked to an increased risk of cancer,” warns Alexis Temkin, Ph.D., toxicologist and primary author of https://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/17/5/1668/htm, a collaboration between the EWG and the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at Indiana University Bloomington’s School of Public Health.
In fact, these chemicals are linked to cancer, birth defects, liver disease, thyroid disease, plummeting sperm counts, kidney disease, decreased immunity and a range of other serious health problems.
And they are found in all these products:
- Plastic ANYTHING: baggies, bottles (water, soda, milk), bags, personal care product containers, pharmaceuticals, cleaning products, drinks
- Prepackaged food including the wrapping on vegetables
- Grease-resistant takeout food containers (like McD’s French fry boxes)
- Fabric softener
- Nail polish
- Makeup (foundation, lipsticks, eyeshadow, mascara, etc) ESPECIALLY WATERPROOF or LONG-LASTING PRODUCTS
- Moisturizers & hand creams
- Body wash
- Shampoos & conditioners
- Dental floss & plaque removers
- Non-stick cookware & containers
- Aluminum foil
- Wrinkle-free clothing
- Water-proof jackets
- Water-proof boots
- Stain-resistant carpeting
- Furniture fabric
- Plastic building materials
- Fast-food wrappers
- Pizza boxes
Wow. Think about your chicken thighs: in a package sitting on a plastic moisture barrier bed sitting on styrofoam all covered with a plastic wrap…
WAIT! WHAT’S A “PFA”?
Poly- & perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are compounds used in industrial & consumer products.
PFAS have been classified as “forever chemicals” because they never go away. E V E R.
They’ve also been found in 97% of people tested.
Several studies going back 50 years identify PFAS as dangerous to our health & Fauci’s NIH is responding to that by conducting its own research to confirm this. Gee thanks… Meanwhile, keep ingesting it… even though we’ve known since the 60s that it causes liver damage in rats.
Your chance of getting cancer is 1 in 2 for men, 1 in 3 for women. Chronic illness in children has risen 54% in the last 20 years. (Yeah, 20) Alzheimer’s is practically guaranteed for people 85yo+ and that just happened. Could chemicals & toxic overload in our food, air & water be part of the problem?
Why aren’t we using the precautionary principle?
THE PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE
Simply exercise precaution before using/doing something. Like looking both ways before crossing a street: that’s precaution. PREcaution.
In Europe, nothing comes on the market until PROVEN SAFE. That’s PREcaution. In the US, if a chemical maker says it did the tests that prove its new billion $ product is safe, it can be sold.
It’s only removed when it’s PROVEN UNSAFE. Sometimes not even then, judging from the fact that PFAS are still in use & widely available. EVEN TEFLON. (Search “teflon” on Amazon.)
So when you see a product for sale or in use, you gotta stop assuming it’s safe.
2 VIP Things To Do
Here are the first 2 things to do to protect your and your family’s health:
1. Stop putting toxins in.
2. Detox. And I’m not talking about a water fast or a parasite or colon cleanse, I’m talking major chemical & heavy metal detox.
I’ve watched too many friends & family die of preventable diseases. PREventable. Don’t be one of them.
