Study: Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals Causing Genital Defects in Boys

Holy Hormones Journal: Are we falling down the rabbit hole or what? Chemical exposure and its affect on our body happens in stages. In some, those stages might be slow – in others the stages might occur rapidly. That really does not matter – the fact that it is happening scares the hell out of me. Confused?

It is obvious – that this man this man-made world is killing us. This is what happens when 50% of the population is left out of not only the conversation, but the equation. We no longer have time for finger-pointing. Genetic defects are real – and they are going to multiply at a rate – if they are not already – that is going to boggle the mind.

Has anyone seen the multiple birth defects infants and children have in the war-torn areas of the Middle East. The war that plays out in the media is a crock of lies and deceit. The real war is always on women and children. They are left with dealing with chemical exposure and genetic defects. Here is the article that I came across.  Iraqi Birth Defects Worse than Hiroshima 

This is really happening. I discussed stages in the beginning of this post. I am referring to how strong the immune system to fend off the damage done to our 06.18.15 Progressive Stages of Diseasebodies by chemical exposure. Over 286 toxins, heavy metals, BPA, and synthetic hormones have been found in the umbilical cord. How long do you think we will be able to sustain ourselves when we are constantly bathing, eating, drinking, breathing, walking in, sleeping and wearing chemicals?

The image to the right is of a chart I had made 40 years ago. I found list of the progressive stages if disease in a book on macrobiotics – all the craze in the 1970’s. I just took a quick photo of it today and inserted.

Dis-ease just does not happen. It is a process – stages if you will – a downward spiral into an abyss.  I know you can all relate. The thing is that we can turn this downward spin into an upward spin at any juncture. This is called healing. The chemicals we are exposed to are causing us to be tired. Our body cannot sustain the constant onslaught.

When we are tired – we force ourselves to keep moving forward so we put additional stress on our bodies – and we develop aches and pains (inflammation). When we are tired and have aches and pains, our body cannot move the toxins out of the blood stream – nor does it digest the nutrients or receive the oxygen it needs to sustain itself. Hence, the next step is emotional disease. Anxiety, depression, anger, rage bipolar disorder, psychosis, autism spectrum disorder, PMS, PMDD, PPS… the list goes on. These are all labels of where we are on the emotional level of disease. Taking drugs (other than short-term for relief) only dives the body deeper into the abyss…. to organ disease – and then nervous system afflictions. But arrogance you ask? Isn’t that the most interesting perception on the part of the Japanese? “Arrogance” in this case means disconnected; separate from – better than. Isn’t it interesting that the final stage of disease is an attitude? This is where we see “false realities, perceptions, sociopath behaviors – mass killings that are now filling the media. This is one reason why addictions are so prevalent. Ask any addict, and they will tell you they feel disconnected from family, work, life, God/Goddess – and of course, this disconnect can lead to suicides.

I wonder if all these decades later, the Japanese would add genetic mutations as the last step in the disease process. Unless we reverse this cycle, there is no doubt that genetic mutations – from epigenetic exposure to chemicals is the next step.

If you want to reverse the process you need to detox and you need to take micronutrients that are bioavailable and contain the synergistic ratio of vitamins, minerals and amino acids to the body needs to heal.

Hypospadias  refers to a birth defect of the urethra in the male where the urinary opening is not at the correct location on the head of the penis. 06.18.15 Hypospadias-lgIt is the second most common birth abnormality in boys, affecting approximately 1 of every 300. In approximately 90% of cases, the opening (meatus) is on or near the head of the penis (glans), referred to as distal hypospadias, while the remainder have proximal hypospadias with a meatus near or within the scrotum. Shiny tissue seen extending from the meatus to the tip of the glans, which should have made the urinary channel, is referred to as the urethral plate. ~Wikipedia

Genital defect in baby boys linked to moms’ chemical exposure

Boys born to mothers living and working around endocrine disrupting chemicals are more likely to have a urethra on the underside of the penis, rather than at the tip, based on a French study

Mothers around a lot of endocrine disrupting chemicals at home or in jobs such as cleaners, hairdressers and laboratory workers during pregnancy are more 06.18.15 Chemical Study Quotelikely to have baby boys with a genital defect, according to a new study in the south of France.

The study adds to mounting evidence that fetal exposure to chemicals that mimic people’s natural hormones may cause hypospadias, a condition where the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis rather than at the tip.

French researchers examined more than 600 children in the south of France and found that babies exposed to endocrine disrupting chemicals while their genitals were developing were more likely to suffer from hypospadias.

Half the boys had hypospadias and half did not. The risk for those exposed was 68 percent higher than the unexposed boys. The researchers ruled out baby boys with known genetic risks for such defects.

“This study is well-crafted and supports the thought that chemicals in the environment are affecting our genital well-being,” said Dr. George Steinhardt, a pediatric urologist at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan, who was not involved in the study.

“This is another little piece of the puzzle that says we are affected by these exposures,” he said.

The defect, which can be minor or quite severe depending on how far the opening is from the tip, can lead to problems with urination and, later in life, sexual difficulty.

About 70 percent of deformities are relatively mild, Steinhardt said.

It is one of the most common genital defects in baby boys, and most cases require surgery, often done before they reach two years old. In the United States, an estimated five out of 1,000 boys are born annually with hypospadias, while Europe’s rate is slightly less than two out of 1,000.
