Estrogen In Our Food & Water Creating Feminine Men, Cancer And More?


I have not blogged in a while.  A lot has been going on and I haven't found the time to sit down and tell all my business.

The reason I decided to blog today is because I was watching television this morning and there was an interesting topic being discussed on one of the shows.  There was a doctor discussing the amount of estrogen found in our drinking water and our canned foods.

I am concerned.  This is so scary to me because our men drink water (obviously) and many eat canned foods.  Has anyone else noticed an increase of femininity amongst our men?  Could it be the estrogen consumption?  This is yet another one of those things that make you go "hmmmmm".

Research shows that about 80% of 139 US rivers are contaminated with trace estrogen compounds.  Some of the sources are:

1) Livestock urine and feces
2) Human excretions which contain contraceptives and hormone replacement meds; like birth control, etc.
3) Insecticides
4) Plastic bottles

I did some research on my own about plastic and this is what I found:


The Dangers of a Plastic World


Since you can’t see, smell or taste them, you can’t tell which products contain estrogen look-a-likes. But they are very common. Here’s a short list:

Vinyl Flooring
Deodorants
Moisturizers
Pesticides
Detergents
Perfumes
Garden hoses
Fertilizers
Shampoo
Hair Spray
Inflatable toys
Plastics
And the list goes on… But plastics are the worst – because they are everywhere. 


From plastic bags and water bottles to the packaging your food comes in – plastic is almost impossible to escape.
Two of the big offenders are bisphenol A andphthalates (pronounced THAL-ates). These man-made chemicals have structures that look strikingly similar to estrogen.
Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is another. It’s used to make Teflon and Gore-Tex. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) tested for the presence of phthalates and PFOA in the general population. The results were sobering. Every person tested – without exception – had trace amounts of both chemicals in their bloodstream.1
Jim Pirkle, deputy director at the CDC’s Environmental Laboratory warned that these findings have serious implications – especially for men. “The big concern with phthalates is that they have anti-androgen activity. They get rid of things that are in the testosterone line – the things that make a man a man.” 1

If that's not enough, check this video out!  FOX did an investigation on the chemical Bisphenol A.

Scary!  To me it is at least.  This is just not natural.  And why is there estrogen being found in canned goods? Well, because all canned goods are lined in plastic!

What are some things we can do to decrease the amount of estrogen being pumped into our bodies?

1) Drink filtered water out of glass.
2) Store left overs in glass, not plastic.
3) Eat natural foods instead of canned goods.

It's up to us to keep ourselves and our families healthy, not our governments!

To your HEALTH,
