Its everywhere, and still no cures. A sad story for America's so called 'best of everything'.
Recently while searching around the net I found a very interesting article that I thought to share.....
.....and we wonder why so many are so sick....after reading the following article I really didn't wonder anymore.
Chemicals etc. theories to causes of cancer.....look over the list and then check the website listed at the bottom to read more on any of these...by checking around, you'll find that its well known that any or all of these chemicals are extremely toxic to our bodies, to nature and could easily cause cancer or at least be linked to cancer. Please be aware of what you put in or on your bodies.
methyl tert-butyl ether
polybrominated diphenyl ethers
216 chemical compounds were found to cause breast cancer in animal testing.
Over 200 are commonly found in urban air and consumer products.
Low levels of pesticides combined with low levels of fungicides are known to cause Parkinson's disease, but chemical manufactures will never admit it.
In July 2007 the Food and Drug Administration announced plans to close 7 of it's 13 food testing laboratories. The Food and Drug Administration now inspects less than 1% of food imports and tests only a fraction of the food inspected.
Since the days of World War II, when America prevailed by building the Earth's first atomic bomb, American public health leaders have maintained that low doses of fluoride are safe for people, and good for children's teeth.
Fluoride is a key chemical in atomic bomb production, according to World War II documents obtained by Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson.
Massive quantities of fluoride - millions of tons - were essential for the manufacture of atomic bomb grade uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons throughout the Cold War.
One of the most toxic chemicals known, fluoride rapidly emerged as the leading chemical health hazard of the American atomic bomb program.
Much of the original proof that fluoride is safe for humans in low doses was generated by atomic bomb program scientists, who had been secretly ordered to provide "evidence useful in litigation" against defense contractors for fluoride injury to citizens.
The first lawsuits against the American atomic bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage.
Human studies were required. American atomic bomb program researchers played a leading role in the design and implementation of the most extensive American study of the health effects of fluoridating public drinking water - conducted in Newburgh, New York from 1945 to 1956.
In this classified 'top secret' operation code-named "Program F," they secretly gathered and analyzed blood and tissue samples from Newburgh citizens, with the cooperation of New York State Health Department personnel.
The original 'top secret' version - obtained by Joel Griffiths and Chris Bryson - of a 1948 study published by Program F scientists in the Journal of the American Dental Association shows that evidence of adverse health effects from fluoride was censored by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) - considered the most powerful of Cold War agencies - for reasons of national security.
The American atomic bomb program's fluoride safety studies were conducted at the University of Rochester, site of one of the most notorious human radiation experiments of the Cold War, in which unsuspecting hospital patients were injected with toxic doses of radioactive plutonium.
The fluoride studies were conducted with the same ethical mind-set, in which "national security" was paramount.
An April 29, 1944 Manhattan Project memo reports: "Clinical evidence suggests that uranium hexafluoride may have a rather marked central nervous system effect.... It seems most likely that the F [code for fluoride] component rather than the T [code for uranium] is the causative factor."
Toxicologists have known since the early 1990s that some pesticides and industrial compounds, including phthalates, can mimic estrogen or block testosterone, the female and male sex hormones that control reproductive development.
Scientists studying the effects of hormone mimicking chemicals on humans have reported in May 2005 that phthalates, used in plastics and beauty products and widely found in humans, alter the reproductive organs of baby boys.
In the first study of humans exposed in the womb to phthalates researchers examined the genitalia of male babies and toddlers, found a strong relationship between the chemicals and changes in the size and anatomy of the children's genitals.
Mothers with the highest levels of chemical in their urine late in their pregnancies had babies with a cluster of effects. The span between anus and penis, called anogenital distance, was comparatively short, and the infants had smaller penises and scrotums and more instances of incomplete descent of testicles. Phthalate levels associated with the genital changes were not unusually high for the general population.
Reproductive biologists say that a shorter anogenital distance is a female like effect in animals, a telltale sign of decreased male hormones, and that it is likely that the human effects are similar, because hormones function the same in animals and humans.
In the late 1990s that a review of sperm counts in developed nations showed a substantial decline since World War II, when many synthetic pesticides and industrial compounds were introduced into the environment. Previous studies of men have linked phthalates to low sperm quality. Nearly everyone in a 1999-2000 survey of 2,500 humans throughout America had phthalates in their urine.
Toys, baby bottle nipples, pacifiers, teething rings, vinyl bath toys, medical equipment, hairspray, deodorants, perfumes, vinyl products including upholstery, packaging, wall and floor covering, nail polishes and other beauty products sold in America contain phthalates which has been banned in the Europe and Japan.
Europe has banned 2 phthalates found in cosmetics and 6 phthalates found in toys. Japan, Mexico and Canada has also banned phthalates. America is one of a few industrialized countries in which phthalates are still used.
"America has become a dumping ground for chemical filled toys that are banned in much of the industrialized world." - Fiona Ma
