Two new recently presented studies show a link between BPA and phthalates, both common chemicals, and serious reproductive risks in both men and women.

Last year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) FDA refused to ban bisphenol-A (BPA) from food packaging, despite major health concerns that have only become worse with further research.

One of the studies presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine suggests that high levels of BPA, the common chemical in many plastics including the lining in canned foods, are linked to increased risk of miscarriage in certain women.

The study shows that there is increased evidence of “the biological plausibility” that BPA might impact fertility and other aspects of health, according to Dr. Linda Giudice, a California biochemist and president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, cited by the Associated Press.

However, the study does not prove a link, according to the Associated Press. (more…)

Nestle and Mead Johnson Nutrition recently dismissed calls to remove genetically-modified organisms (GMO) from their infant formula products in the US and now evidence is coming forth on long-term risks related to infant formulations. Epidemiological research has indicated a relationship between infant formula feeding and increased risk of chronic diseases later in life including obesity, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Researchers stated that the comprehensive metabolic implications of formula vs breast-feeding play a role in long-term health risks.

Nestle and Mead Johnson Nutrition recently dismissed calls to remove genetically-modified organisms (GMO) from their infant formula products in the US — citing the approved use of GMOs by several national and global regulatory bodies. (more…)

Medical and Parental Malpractice

http://oddemail.com/files/2010/08/newborn_babies_Funzug.org_06-e1282648779602.jpg

Before I say a word in this essay I want everyone to see the true care that newborns and young children deserve. It is my deepest belief/feeling that we all deserve this kind of love as we touch town on this planet because we need all the love we can get to withstand all the difficulties we will face with life on earth.

For years I have written about malpractice in oncology and pediatrics and I wonder upon parents who drag their kids to doctors only to have them seriously abused by them. Our entire civilization is built upon abusive behaviors and attitudes so no one should be surprised when I say that doctors abuse children and should be charged for child abuse. Just because the abuse is not sexual in nature does not excuse the offense.

If you think I am on extreme territory with these statements please read what Glenn Harlan Reynolds, professor of law at the University of Tennessee wrote:

For a while, I’ve been wondering if it’s parental malpractice to put your kids in public schools. More and more, it’s gone beyond wondering. For example, last week the Washington Post reported a nasty case of abusive behavior by school officials in Calvert County, Maryland: A five-year-old who brought a cowboy-style cap pistol on a school bus — orange-tipped, and something that no one could possibly mistake for a real gun — was interrogated for two hours (an interrogation that was so long, or so stressful, that he wet his pants) and then suspended for 10 days. Who treats a five-year-old that way? (more…)

The Chemical Castration of our Children’s Brains

 

Government should not be in the business of mandating personal choices and government should never be allowed to legislate choices which should be reserved for parents with regard to their children’s health and welfare. The parents are sovereign over the welfare of their children, not the state.

In the name of increasing the corporate bottom line, the government watchdog industries of the DEA and FDA, as well as the office of the President, have become the willing lap dogs for Big Pharma and this unholy alliance is serving to endanger our children.

Big Pharma has gone to great lengths to increase sales to the youth of America either through chemically castrating our children’s brains or by producing drugs with very serious side effects which serve to seriously degrade both the brain and the body. Our children are being systematically destroyed by the pharmaceutical industry.

The Ritalin Conspiracy

ritalin 5Let’s make up a brain disorder, which parallels normal restlessness of children and then transform a dangerous drug, methamphetamine, and get as many kids on the drug as possible. It is good work if you can find it and pharmaceutical companies like Merck and Eli Lilly are leading the way in medical fraud and in the name of record corporate profits (more…)

Soy Infant Formula: A Formula For Disaster

soy formula for disaster

The following is a guest post by Dr. Kaayla Daniel, author of The Whole Soy Story and blogger at Dr. Kaayla Daniel The Naughty Nutritionist. Thank you Dr. Kaayla for sharing with us!

Soy infant formula should only be used as a last resort.

That’s the word from the Israeli Health Ministry, French Food Agency, German Institute of Risk Assessment, British Dietetic Association and other government health organizations around the world.

The biggest danger is the phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) found in all soybeans, organic, conventional or GMO. Although phytoestrogens are not identical to human estrogens, they are close enough to cause significant hormone disruption, adversely affecting the infant’s developing body and brain. (more…)

New study: Common chemicals combine to create super potent hormone wrecking toxins

For years, Natural News has reported on research from scientists who are sounding the alarm that estrogen-mimicking chemicals in the environment, including bisphenol A (BPA) are ending up in our bodies — with potentially health-harming results. Specifically, in study after study, researchers have found links between these “xenoestrogens” and decreased sperm viability, obesity, ovarian dysfunction, neurodevelopmental problems in children and more.

Unfortunately, this tale of chemicals-changing-humans just got worse. Much worse.

Does Vaccinating Pregnant Women Really Slash The Risk of Pertussis in Infants’ First 4 Months?

Saturday, March 23rd 2013 at 5:00 am

Vaccinating pregnant women “halves the risk of pertussis in infants’ first four months” ~ A critique by Dr Suzanne Humphries

The latest propaganda hitting the provaccine press today involves the results of a retrospective study conducted through channels at the University of Sydney, NSW Australia. Click to see the conference poster HERE.

The headlines in the press include “Whooping cough jabs for mum protect baby”, “Protecting babies against pertussis: pregnant moms and caretakers need the vaccine”, “Whooping cough vaccine advised for pregnant women”, “pertussis immunization before pregnancy halves risk.” The title of “halving risk” comes from a medical organization called the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases. They made a statement that is not in the poster by Dr Quinn, and stated:

Importantly, 14% of case mothers and 26% of control mothers were vaccinated before delivery, most within 2 years but up to 6 years previously. (more…)

Fertility Destroying Chemical Added To Tap, Milk, Salt

Fertility Destroying Chemical Added To Tap, Milk, Salt

Fluoride is promoted above good nutrition as a ‘therapeutic’ chemical necessary to prevent cavities, but it lowers IQ, calcifies the pineal gland and harms fertility, among a wide range of other adverse health effects.

There is no question remaining that fluoride lowers IQ, at least as far as high-quality epidemiological research published in peer-reviewed journals has shown.

Take the conclusion of this systematic review of the literature published in the journal Biological and Trace Elements Research in 2008, which looked at whether fluoride exposure has increased the risk of low intelligence quotient (IQ) in China over the past 20 years:

[C]hildren who live in a fluorosis area [high fluoride exposure] have five times higher odds of developing low IQ than those who live in a nonfluorosis area or a slight fluorosis area.

[See our IQ and Fluoride research page for seven first-hand study abstracts on this connection] (more…)

Opening windows while pregnant improves baby’s health

Women who regularly open the windows of their homes while pregnant are significantly less likely to have premature and low birth weight infants, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Southern California and published in the American Journal of Public Health.

Preterm birth and low birth weight are significantly associated with poor infant health, higher infant morality, and lifelong problems with the heart, breathing and behavior.

Researchers collected information on the birth weights of 1,761 Los Angeles babies, along with information from their mothers about how often windows had been kept open in the home during pregnancy, how often nail polish, hairspray and bug spray were used in the home, and whether anyone smoked inside the home.
