Chemical Industry has put Endocrine Disruptors in Everything

Prenatal exposure to chemicals in personal care products may speed puberty in girls,
UC Berk Dept Public Health, December 5, 2018.


“Girls exposed to chemicals commonly found in toothpaste, makeup, soap and other personal care products before birth may hit puberty earlier...“

“...followed 338 children from before birth to adolescence to document how early environmental exposures affect childhood development.”

Developmental Dysfunctions
“Over the past 20 years, studies have shown that girls and possibly boys have been experiencing puberty at progressively younger ages. This is troubling news, as earlier age at puberty has been linked with increased risk of mental illness, breast and ovarian cancer in girls and testicular cancer in boys.”

diethyl phthalate and triclosan
“...daughters of mothers who had higher levels of diethyl phthalate and triclosan in their bodies during pregnancy experienced puberty at younger ages. The same trend was not observed in boys.”

In fragrances, cosmetics, & toothpaste
“Diethyl phthalate is often used as a stabilizer in fragrances and cosmetics. The antimicrobial agent triclosan — which the FDA banned from use in hand soap in 2017 because it was shown to be ineffective — is still used in some toothpastes.”

Phthalates, Parabens & Phenols
“...chemicals in personal care products can interfere with natural hormones in our bodies... Chemicals that have been implicated include phthalates...found in scented products like perfumes, soaps and shampoos; parabens, which are used as preservatives in cosmetics; and phenols, which include triclosan.

My Fellow Test Subjects
“...studies have shown that exposure to these chemicals can alter reproductive development in rats...few studies have looked at how these chemicals might affect the growth of human children.

“The researchers found that every time the concentrations of diethyl phthalate and triclosan in the mother’s urine doubled, the timing of developmental milestones in girls shifted approximately one month earlier. Girls who had higher concentrations of parabens in their urine at age 9 also experienced puberty at younger ages.”

“...people should be aware that there are chemicals in personal care products that may be disrupting the hormones in our bodies,””

Locating the Poisons
“Resources like the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database or the Think Dirty App can help savvy consumers reduce their exposure.”



The Bottom Line

You, your family, (our environment), and your children are all test subjects in an ongoing "test," testing to see just how far & fast the forces of greed can use all the powers at their disposal, (composed mostly of political bribery and commonplace corruption), to continue concentrating the remaining wealth and power of our nation, into their greedy hands.

Our lives, health, and welfare concerns them not, when balanced against the weight of their greedy desires, and the current influence of their present corrupt powers and wealth.
