BEWARE OF ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS

BEWARE OF ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS

BEWARE OF ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS

Never heard of endocrine disruptors? You must read this article:

 

WHAT IS AN ENDOCRINE DISRUPTOR?

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines them as "exogenous substance...that alters function(s) of the endocrine system and consequently causes adverse health effects in an intact organism, or its progeny, or (sub)populations". 

WHERE DO WE FIND ENDOCRINE DISRUPTORS

These substances can be found in many products of every day use: in cosmetics, food containers, cleaning products, cigarette smoke, pesticides... Reading a label, you may recognize them as Bisphenol A, phthalates, parabens...

WHAT EFFECTS ON OUR HEALTH?

The first studies report impacts on the human body, especially on the reproductive system. The effects of endocrine disruptors depend on the dose and the duration of exposure.

Endocrine disruptors are thought to disrupt the functioning of hormones, causing early puberty, sperm abnormalities, reduced fertility or malformations. They would also be involved in certain pathologies such as cancer or obesity.

On baby's little body, those harmful substances can also impact their brain development. In general, kids & pregnant women are the most at risk.

 

HOW TO AVOID THEM?

  • Avoid plastics as much as possible: replace plastic food containers by glass food containers. 

  • Do not re-use plastic water bottles

  • Do not re-heat food in a plastic container. Use a plate or a glass container.

  • Opt for natural substances paints like natural coatings

  • Use natural cleansers like bicarbonate, vinegar, lemon...

  • Avoid interior scent

  • Shift to organic cosmetics & skin care

  • Eat as much organic as possible & avoid processed foods

  • Wear organic clothes. Avoid anti-bacterial textile as often contains triclosan.

 

Stay Healthy!
