The Chicago Tribune tested popular cell phones for radiofrequency radiation.
Research conducted by Mesnard et al, published in the journal Toxicology, found that the additives to glyphosate-based herbicides are themselves toxic to human cells. Pesticides typically consist of an active ingredient, such as glyphosate in Roundup, and additives, or “adjuvants”.
The decision by the IARC (part of the World Health Organization) to list glyphosate, found in the commonly-used herbicide Roundup, as “probably carcinogenic to humans” (group 2A), was based on their review of about 1000 studies. Read more about the IARC’s decision here.
In 2017, the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) listed glyphosate and three other common pesticides as “known to the state to cause cancer”.
Results of a study by Mesnage et al, published in the journal Environmental Health, suggest that chronic exposure to a glyphosate-based herbicides (such as Roundup) given to rats at an ultra-low environmental dose can result in liver and kidney damage.
In research published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, The commonly-used herbicide glyphosate (found in Roundup) was found to induce breast cancer cell growth by acting as an endocrine disruptor in humans. Read the study abstract here.
The National Institutes of Health has a very useful website containing basic information about pesticides and the most recent studies involving the effects of pesticides on human health.
An experimental study has demonstrated a cocktail effect for a mixture of five pesticides commonly found in human food. This means that these chemicals are more toxic when combined than alone. The results showed DNA damage on lines of human cells cultivated in vitro.
The incidence of thyroid cancer is rising in the United States.
A study by Yang et al, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, found that most plastic products release estrogenic substances.
Toxic Matters, a program of the University of California, has put out a brochure offering practical recommendations on how to avoid exposure to common substances encountered in everyday life that can be harmful to reproductive health.
Excellent and welcoming and I look forward to continuing! It’s what I feel has been missing after my surgeries and all the doctor visits. Thank you!
“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section. People get some nutrition, stress management, and exercise guidance but virtually no information about toxins and their impact.”
“I love that this course provides participants with evidence-based information and concrete tools for living a happier and healthier life, even while coping with a cancer diagnosis.”
