    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...

    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

    I guess everybody is getting a free dose of estrogen and BPA through the water we drink. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/0 ... tists-say/ "...In a study published in the journal Scientific Reports, U.S. Geological Survey researchers found that fish exposed to 17a- ethinylestradiol, also...

    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...
