Ever wonder how chemicals are affecting your hormones?

We live in a toxic world that can leave our bodies screaming for help.

While technology advances are good in some ways, they are bad in others.2

Some of these advances lend themselves to dangerous chemicals that we let into our homes and lives unknowingly.

As with anything, education is key.

Find out what chemicals are affecting your hormones so you can avoid them.

1. BPA

BPA is also known as Bisphenol A.

You may know it to be a chemical in plastics, but did you also know it is found in the lining of cans used to contain foods?

Despite recent media coverage and cries for concern, many manufacturers still use BPA lined cans and plastics.2

If you want to avoid BPA, donโ€™t use containers marked with a 3 or a 7 on them for recycling.

They contain BPA.

2. Arsenic

Wait, that sounds a bit poisonous!

Yeah, it is, yet it is listed as an ingredient in foods and found in drinking water.2

Make sure you know whatโ€™s in the food you eat.

Arsenic affects the way your body processes sugar.

As for your drinking water, I use a water filter that does well at getting rid of all contaminants in my water.

I use the filtered water for drinking, cooking, and making ice cubes.

3. Phthalates

Check your beauty products for this chemical.

It is commonly found in lotions, creams, cleansers, and some makeup products.

Why is it so dangerous?

Phthalates are known to induce apoptosis in the immune system cells.

It pretty much lessens the effectiveness of your immune system, which I am sure we can all agree is not a good thing.

4. Lead

Lead is a well known poison, but it it still a concern.

If you live in an older house your paint may be lead based.

Take extreme caution when removing paint from walls and furniture.

Wear a face mask so you donโ€™t breathe in any dust.

Lead can also seep into your drinking water.

Just another reason to use a good filter system.
