The average woman will have her period once a month, for about 5 days, for around 40 years of her life.
Products to keep women clean and fresh during this period are a necessity. Because of this, the Tampon and Pad industry is a $718 Million dollar market. These products are mass-produced, heavily marketed, and cheaply made, out of bleached rayon and plastics.
How safe do you think that material is to put inside your Vagina? And why is it that we never see ads for the much safer Read more [...]
The end of last year was masked with sadness for Belgium parents Raphaël Sirjacobs & Béatrice Dupont, as their nine week old daughter Stacy Sirjacobs lost her fight for life. Stacy died just one week after her first vaccinations and left her twin sister Lesly behind. Devastated by their loss their parents are convinced that vaccines and hospital failures were the cause of their beautiful daughters death.
Stacy and Lesly were born one month premature by Caesarean section and spent the Read more [...]
Here's a sign that Teflon coating could cause serious health problems: It gives off fumes that kill birds! Veterinarians call it "Teflon Toxicosis" and it happens because birds develop powerful respiratory reactions to Teflon fumes.
Teflon Bird Fatality Reports:
When a Teflon-lined oven was used to bake biscuits at 325 degrees Fahrenheit, an owner reported the death of his parrots.
When four stovetop burners lined with Teflon drip pans were preheated for a meal, 14 birds died within15 Read more [...]
Breathing in air pollution at a lower rate than prescribed limits for prolonged periods of time increases your risk of lung cancer, according to a new study published in the Lancet Oncology.
The study looked at the association between long-term exposure to ambient air pollution – the everyday pollution we breathe around us – and lung cancer in Europe.
Using information gathered from 17 cohort studies into the long-term effects of air pollution across nine European countries (nearly 313,000 Read more [...]
Have you ever wondered how toilet paper (or any paper, for that matter), gets to be so white? Paper made from wood would ordinarily be brown (like paper bags or cardboard boxes) and would yellow in time (as newspaper does), so the pulp and paper industry, which some say is among the worst-polluting industries on Earth, uses chlorine and its derivatives, such as chlorine dioxide, to bleach it.
This process leads to the creation of cancer-causing chemicals like dioxins and furans, which not only Read more [...]
A recently published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have "significantly lower" IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.
In a 32-page report that can be downloaded free of charge from Environmental Health Perspectives,1 the researchers said:
"A recent report from the U.S. National Research Council (NRC 2006)2 concluded that adverse effects of high fluoride Read more [...]
In Russia, microwave ovens were banned in 1976 because of their negative health consequences as many studies were conducted on their use.
The Nazis are credited with inventing the first microwave-cooking device to provide mobile food support to their troops during their invasion of the Soviet Union in World War II. These first microwave ovens were experimental. After the war, the US War Department was assigned the task of researching the safety of microwave ovens.
But it was the Russians who Read more [...]
If you use store-bought, conventionally-formulated shampoos, conditioners, body washes and other similar personal care products on a regular basis, you could be exposing yourself to high doses of a cancer-causing chemical that few people are even aware exists. The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) recently published the findings of an independent study it conducted which found that 98 tested shampoos, soaps and other personal care products contained high levels of cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide Read more [...]
"Just about every acute or degenerative disease would be alleviated by controlling serotonin."
- Dr. Ray Peat
As a culture it appears we have been conned into believing that serotonin is a 'happy' neurotransmitter, and that people who are depressed need more of it. This lie paved the way for the introduction of a whole host of antidepressant drugs (as well as the illegalization of LSD due to it's serotonin-antagonizing effect) which increase the effect of serotonin in the body. "Serotonin research," Read more [...]
Water fluoridation has been an increasing topic of public concern over the past few years. Skeptics tend to argue that there is no evidence to support the claim that water fluoridation is harmful to human health. If this were true, why are townships all around the world coming together to ban fluoride from their water supply? Communities in Australia, Canada, the United States and more, have all been convinced that fluoride can be extremely hazardous to human health. Sodium fluoride, sodium silicofluoride Read more [...]
At Ngoc Sinh Seafoods Trading & Processing Export Enterprise, a seafood exporter on Vietnam’s southern coast, workers stand on a dirty floor sorting shrimp one hot September day. There’s trash on the floor, and flies crawl over baskets of processed shrimp stacked in an unchilled room in Ca Mau.
Elsewhere in Ca Mau, Nguyen Van Hoang packs shrimp headed for the U.S. in dirty plastic tubs. He covers them in ice made with tap water that the Vietnamese Health Ministry says should be boiled Read more [...]
