    Oyster Source/Brand - Glass/Jarred Rather Than Fresh/Canned

    1) Fresh Oysters Pro - Healthy and fresh. Con - Expensive and a pain to buy as they don't keep a long time. 2) Canned Oysters Pro - Cheap, portable, long-lasting. Con - Canned - along with whatever contaminants that might include - BPA, alum, etc. Does anyone know of an alternative to canned...

    Downtrend of sperm count, penis length accelerating; humans now endangered species

    A number of eminent fertility experts are now sounding a dire alarm in regards to the human species. What used to be mostly the stuff of girls-night-out jokes in regards to the size of a male's member has now apparently acquired catastrophic proportions due to male penis size emerging as a...

    Call for information: Trying to determine extent of estrogenic substances still in food supply.

    I would like for anyone to help contribute some knowledge, speculation and studies, and open a discussion on the extent to which, despite supposedly getting rid of BPA containing plastics, there are still estrogenic substances in all the plastics we store much of our food in, and used during the...

    Even very low-dose endocrine disruptors induce learned helplessness, anhedonia

    Not much to comment on this study, considering the mountains of literature already available on the topic of endocrine disruptors such as BPA/BPA/DEHP, except to point out that the results were obtained even with very low-dose exposure to the harmful chemicals. Another interesting finding was...

    DHT blocks, androgen antagonists promote breast cancer

    The first claim of the title is already well-known to my readers and to clinical practice. DHT was clinically used back in the middle of the 20th century as a treatment for breast cancer, and the synthetic androgen Drostanolone (Masteron), which still retains its approval by FDA for breast...

    What benefits have you seen from just using water instead of toiler paper after bowel movements?

    I started experimenting with just using water to wash after bowel movements. After some of the threads shared on this forum about the presence of possibly estrogenic substances in toilet paper, I decided to stop using it for a while. Unfortunately, I don't experience ghost-like stools, and I...

    Steroid Receptor Antagonists in Bottled Water

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC3756062/ An increasing number of in vitro studies reports the presence of EDCs in bottled water [12], [13], [14], [15], [17]. With previous studies focusing on estrogenicity, the present work provides evidence for an additional contamination...

    Drop In Mom's Thyroid Levels, Undetectable By Blood Tests, Tanks Child IQ

    I am posting this article mostly for the specific quote corroborating Peat's writing that thyroid blood tests are very unreliable and always have to be interpreted together with other "biomarkers" of thyroid function such as pulse, core temperature, muscle tone, reflexes, etc before a...

    Endocrine Disruptors (BPA) Can Cause Autism Several Generations Later

    In one of his recent newsletters, as well several KMUD interviews, Peat mentioned that the effects of GMO foods and other environmental toxins would not be immediately visible. In fact, they would take several generations to manifest and by the say third, forth, fifth generations we would start...

    High Metabolism Quickly Destroys / Chelates Endocrine Disruptors Like BPA

    I suspect the topic of endocrine disruptors is on many forum users' minds. We have had multiple discussions about them here, and the ability of chemicals like BPA / BPS to act as thyroid antagonists and estrogen agonists. Bpa-free Plastic Just As Dangerous As One With Bpa Plasticisers (bpa...

    Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Exposure During Pregnancy Feminizes The Offspring

    I posted a number of threads on acetaminophen (Tylenol) in the past, in regards to its toxicity and questionable benefits, given the availability of much safer alternatives. The most concerning findings about acetaminophen to me (up until now) were related to its potent serotonergic effects...

    Bpa-free Plastic Just As Dangerous As One With Bpa

    The dangers of the so-called plasticisers are well-known and have been known for decades. Despite the extensive research, FDA refuses to ban these chemicals that are banned in many other countries. I recently posted a study on the mechanism through which the plasticisers cause damage...

    Plasticisers (bpa, Dehp) Boost Pufa, Estrogen, Cortisol & Block Glucose Oxidation

    While the FDA continues to claim that BPA and other plastic derivatives are harmless since no known mechanism exists to explain their effects, the mechanisms of action have been quite well known for decades. BPA specifically is an estrogen "receptor" agonist more potent than estradiol, AND also...

    Estrogen (and Bpa) Cause Infertility For Several Generations

    Chelating BPA

    Actually, this should apply to all estrogenic chemicals similar to BPA contained in plastics. Just b/c the plastic container says "BPA-free" does not mean it is not harmful. Often they have BPS (a close relative of BPA), which is even more toxic and less studied than BPA. It looks like activated...
