Endocrine Disruptors Everywhere

The Flag of the Corporate-Chemical-Corruption Pirates:
Corporate Corruption Perverts & Kills Man & Nature
 Corrupted Regulatory Apparatus allows Dangerous Chemicals in Everything
"Skully," is the, "battle flag," a representative symbol, and practical result of Our Bribed & Corrupted Political Regulatory Apparatus allowing Dangerous Chemicals into Everything, among many other dangerous policies (!), that are highly detrimental to us and our environment's health, our wealth, and everything's welfare.


Heavy Plastic and Endocrine Disruptor Distrubition.



A Troubling Discovery in the Deepest Ocean Trenches,
The Atlantic, February 27, 2019.


Deepest Trenches
“...vehicles to the bottom of marine trenches, which can be as deep as the Himalayas are tall. Once there, these landers have collected amphipods—scavenger relatives of crabs and shrimp that thrive in the abyss.”

“...analyze their body for toxic, human-made pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, which have been banned for decades but which persist in nature for much longer.”

“PCBs Galore”
“Some amphipods were carrying levels 50 times higher than those seen in crabs from one of China’s most polluted rivers.”

Logistics of Destruction
“The world produces an estimated 10 tons of plastic a second, and between 5 million and 14 million tons sweep into the oceans every year.”

Plastic Distribution
"...found plastic fibers and fragments in 72 percent of the amphipods that the team collected..."

"In the 6.8-mile-deep Mariana Trench, the lowest point in any ocean, all of the specimens had plastic in their gut."

“It’s not a good result,” Jamieson adds. “I don’t like doing this type of work.”


Bottom LIne

Getting up to Speed

Let’s review the recent research on endocrine disruptors and plastics, below. Plastics, because plastic acts as one of endocrine disruptor's main vectors for entry into the environment.
The widpread distribution of plastic trash everywhere around the world looks like it's accounting for the subsequent, "ubiquitious," distribution of endocrine disruptors into the environment and humans. Finally, we cannot help but note the lack of research about the effects that a couple of decades of deep human and environmental innudation in plastics and endocrine disruptors is having on humans and the environment.

Notice a rise of disconnected, dysphoric individuals?

Has the trajectory of human childhood development been altered by the ubiquitious distrubition of endocrine disruptors into the environment and humans? What effect, and how deep is the effect of the widespread distribution of plastics and endocrine disruptors having, on how large a part of our population, exactly?
