    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...

    SSRI drugs decrease androgens / progestogens, increase estrogens

    As hard as it is to believe, this is the actual title of the study - i.e. SSRI drugs are bonafide endocrine disruptors. As it turns out, all of the six most-prescribed SSRI drugs the study looked at behaved not only as inhibitors of gonadal androgen synthesis (e.g. testosterone, DHT), but also...

    Endocrine disruptors in cosmetics may cause postpartum depression, premature births

    Hardly a surprising finding, but it will probably come as a shock to most modern women who are the biggest consumers of such products (e.g. nail polish, perfumes, shampoo, etc). One of the reasons for this "controversy" is that doctors continue to insist that using such products during pregnancy...

    Specific advice / a funny predicament.

    Hi! I've made a few posts before but I'd like to keep it short and ask for specific advice. Apologies in advance for my weird English. As you can imagine, it's not my mother tongue, haha. LATER-EDIT: I guess you can ignore the ''keeping it short'' part. I'm a 23 year old male, 1,83cm tall...

    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...

    Reversed Evolutuon - Environmental Hormones (documentary French/german)

    A great documentary about why people on average are becoming more and more stupid and how that ties in with environmental toxins, the thyroid and autism . It might not be 100% inline with what peat says but even seeing all those things talked about on mainstream TV is groundbreaking ! I...

    Estrogen Excess During Pregnancy May Cause Autism

    Finally! Some common sense is emerging from the medical profession. For one, it points the finger straight at estrogen as a possible cause of autism. And not just estradiol, which the medical profession considers the only estrogen of note, but all 3 of them (estrone, estradiol, estriol). So, all...

    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...

    Endocrine Disruptors In Sunscreen Absorb Systemically And Persist For Days

    So much for the safety of sunscreen. Of course, the article immediately goes on the defensive and warns against stopping sunscreen. It even includes gems like "The sun is the real enemy here" and keeps repeating the mantra that it is all about risk-benefits analysis. Yet, even MSM is forced to...
