Health & Fitness News: BPA in 86% of Global Teenagers

 

HEALTH & FITNESS NEWS
BPA in 86% of Global Teenagers

Generations Lost to Chemically-Distorted Sexual Development:

Denied Natural Sexuality

Exposure to chemical found in plastics 'hard to avoid' in everyday life,
University of Exeter, February 5, 2018.

The unavoidable conclusion of this research is that very high concentrations of BPA are ubiquitous in the environment globally, and this estrogen-like compound exists in high concentrations in our planet's sexually-developing teenage population.

Gee, guess what that'd do?

LOOK AROUND.

 

FROM THE RESEARCH

"86 per cent of teenagers have traces of Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical compound used to make plastics, in their body."

"Measurable levels of BPA, an endocrine-disrupting chemical, were found in the urine of the vast majority of the 94 17-19 year olds tested."

BPA EXPOSURE UNAVOIDABLE

"They found that chemical is so ubiquitous that trying to reduce exposure by avoiding food packaging and food likely to contain BPA has no measurable impact on exposure."

Plastic Poisoning our Planet and People: True Nature and Extent of Plastic and Microplastic Threats Explored

 

HEALTH & FITNESS NEWS
Plastics and Micro-Plastics Poisioning our Planet and People

True Nature and Extent of Plastic Threat Explored

An underestimated threat: Land-based pollution with microplastics,
Forschungsverbund Berlin, February 5, 2018.

Our Plastic Reality

"Over 400 million tons of plastic are produced globally each year."

"...accepted that microplastics contaminate our oceans and are harmful to coastal and marine habitats."

Our Micro-Plastic Reality

"...estimated that one third of all plastic waste ends up in soils or freshwaters. Most of this plastic disintegrates into particles smaller than five millimetres, referred to as microplastics, and breaks down further into nanoparticles, which are less than 0.1 micrometre in size."

Terrestrial Mico-Plastic

"...terrestrial microplastic pollution is much higher than marine microplastic pollution – an estimate of four to 23 times more, depending on the environment."

The Question

"...what effect do fragments of plastic have on ecosystems “on dry land”?"

Polluted air may pollute our morality,
Association for Psychological Science, February 7, 2018.

Creating the Crappy "Box" we Live Within:

"Exposure to air pollution, even imagining exposure to air pollution, may lead to unethical behavior...is linked with unethical behavior such as crime and cheating. "

"Previous studies have indicated that exposure to air pollution elevates individuals’ feelings of anxiety. Anxiety is known to correlate with a range of unethical behaviors. Lu and colleagues hypothesized that pollution may ultimately increase criminal activity and unethical behavior by increasing anxiety."

"The researchers found that cities with higher levels of air pollution also tended to have higher levels of crime. This association held even after the researchers accounted for other potential factors, including total population, number of law enforcement employees, median age, gender distribution, race distribution, poverty rate, unemployment rate, unobserved heterogeneity among cities (e.g., city area, legal system), and unobserved time-varying effects (e.g., macroeconomic conditions)."
