Chemicals Interfere with Hormones In Adults, Infants and Children

Holy Hormones Journal:

Although this article was written and posted in 2012, it is worth sharing with my readers. We have to come to the realization – and fast – that all of those chemicals that we are exposed to in our homes, schools and work places are interfering with our health in epidemic proportions.

For those of you who are not familiar with parabens – which is why I re-posted this article – Wikipedia has the very succint definition:

Parabens is a term used within the vernacular of the specialty chemicals industry to describe a series of parahydroxybenzoates or esters of parahydroxybenzoic acid (also known as 4-hydroxybenzoic acid). Parabens are widely used as preservatives by cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. These compounds, and their salts, are used primarily for their bactericidal and fungicidal properties. They can be found in shampoos, commercial moisturizers, shaving gels, personal lubricants, topical/parenteral pharmaceuticals, spray tanning solution, makeup, and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives.

And we wonder why women and men – and our children are suffering from hormone imbalance – related mental, emotional, and physical issues?
