Once a rare problem in the Western world, this imbalance is on the increase in North America.

The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century ActOn June 22, 2016, President Obama signed into law the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act which amends the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), the Nation’s primary chemicals management law.
The new law, which received bipartisan support in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, includes much needed improvements such as:

Somehow this type of news never surprises me. This is why I use glass for everything now instead of any BPA Plastic Free

BPA-free alternatives may be no safer than BPA, say researchers
Most common alternative, BPS, linked in study to disruptions of estrogen and thyroid hormones
(CNN)Your "BPA-free" plastic product may be no safer than the product it replaced, says a new UCLA study that analyzed the impact of a common BPA alternative on zebra fish embryos. The study joins a small but growing group of similar research sounding the alarm about so called "BPA-free" alternatives.
"Our findings are frightening and important," said senior author and reproductive endocrinologist Nancy Wayne. "Consider it the aquatic version of the canary in the coal mine."
After decades of animal research linked BPA (Bisphenol A), a known endocrine disruptor, to problems with brain and reproductive development, early puberty and a rise in breast and prostate cancer, many manufacturers stopped using the chemical to harden plastics, replacing it with "BPA-free" alternatives. The most common replacement is BPS (Bisphenol S), said Wayne.
Wayne and her colleagues exposed zebrafish to low levels of both BPA and BPS, and looked at the impact of the chemicals on genes and brain cells that control reproduction. Zebrafish have often been used to study the impact of plastic additives because their transparent embryos allow scientists to see and monitor cell growth.
"Our research showed that low levels of BPS had a similar impact on the embryo as BPA," Wayne told CNN. "In the presence of either BPA or BPS, embryonic development was accelerated. Additionally, BPA caused premature birth."
In addition to the effect on estrogen, the study also found both BPA and BPS affected the thyroid hormone system. "Because of thyroid hormone's important influence on brain development during gestation," said Wayne, "our work holds important implications for general embryonic and fetal development, including in humans."
BPS research growing
I received this article today from Dr Axe who has a great website with good information about natural health ~ I have posted about this many times but again I am posting his information about the dangers of these Artificial Sweetners - their names - what they are hidden in the foods and drinks we eat because they are not something I want to put in my body and once you read it you should not either. The only Sweetner I ever use is STEVIA and I use the Sweet Leaf Brand ONLY (he talks about that too) I like the Lemon drops brand but you can choose from many - here is a link to many choices or you can purchase at some grocery stores.

The 5 Worst Artificial Sweeteners by Dr Axe
If you haven’t stopped using artificial sweeteners, please do so immediately! Artificial sweeteners, or non-nutritive sweeteners as they are sometimes referred to, have been controversial since they were first introduced to the market in the 1950s, and scientific research shows they are associated with many dangerous side effects.
Introduced to satisfy consumers’ sweet tooth, these artificial sweeteners with no calories seemed, at the time, like good alternatives to refined sugars and natural sweeteners. However, the side effects simply aren’t worth it. These fake sweeteners cause symptoms that range from headaches and migraines to weight gain and even more serious conditions like cardiovascular disease. (1)
Caralluma Fimbriata ~ Is it the miracle weight loss solution we've been searching for? Could Be ~~ Read All About it
My good friend asked me to check out a weight loss product out there that was claiming dramatic weight loss promises. It took me 2-3 hours to check it out and realized there were bad reviews and no scientific research behind it. I researched each one of the ingredients and one of them stood out to me. I had never heard of Caralluma Fimbriata so I researched that ingredient. What I found was really good reports and scientific studies to back it up and that one ingredient may be all you need to take along with exercise and not overeating ~~ it surpresses the appetite so you feel full which is only one of the benefits.
