Could Be One Reason For Early Menopause In the largest study ever done on the effects of perfluorocarbons (PFCs) on womens hormone systems, West Virginia University researchers found in blood tests that higher levels of these man-made chemicals are associated with early menopausal symptoms in females aged 42 to 64. Premature menopause has been linked to a variety of health problems, including cardiovascular disease. Researchers collected data from 25,957 women, measuring serum concentration levels of PFCs and the female hormone estradiol, and reported a definite association between... (Read More ...)

When Was The Last Time You Looked At Ingredients On Your Toothpaste or Detergent? Do you have a rash, a consistent sneeze, or runny nose that won’t seem to go away? Did you ever stop to think it could be caused by something toxic in your home, office or car? We are exposed to so many toxic substances on a daily basis and we don’t even think about it. It has become our “way of life.” Usually, it is not until something happens to our health or a loved one’s health, that we will be forced to look around at some of the chemicals we come in contact with. It isn’t... (Read More ...)

Food Matters asked seven experts a simple question: “What foods do you avoid?” Here are some of their eye-opening responses: Canned Tomatoes An endocrinologist won’t go near canned tomatoes — the cans are lined with a resin containing BPA, and tomatoes are especially dangerous because their acid breaks the BPA down in dangerous amounts. Conventional Beef Conventional cattle are fed grain, corn and soy to make them fat, even though studies show that grass-fed beef is higher in important vitamins, minerals and heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory fats. Microwave Popcorn Perfluorooctanoic... (Read More ...)

If You Don’t Read Labels, Maybe Now is the Time to Start (NaturalNews) “Should the FDA be so permissive with chemicals in food, suspect or not, that amount to little more than marketing?” asks The Daily Green (http://www.thedailygreen.com/health…). This question is particularly pertinent considering that colorings have not always proven to be harmless. Citrus Red 2, Red 3, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2 and Green 3, –which include some of the most commonly used artificial food colorings–have all been identified as being, or being contaminated with,... (Read More ...)

Are You Familiar With This Preservative? (NaturalNews) TBHQ is used in many foods, ranging from crackers to crisps to fast foods. It is also found in certain brands of pet foods, as well as in cosmetic and baby skincare products, varnish, lacquers and resins. It is used in the stabilisation process of explosive compounds.

Protect Your Family From Cancer-Causing Chemicals Here is an interesting site I came across and wanted to share with you. The foods we eat, may not be as healthy as we think they are. There are more than 3000 different food additives that are purposefully added to our food supply. Some of them are known to cause cancer! How is this possible? Even though the Delaney Clause of the 1958 Food Additives Amendment states that any additives shown to cause cancer in humans or animals are not permitted to be added to our food, political pressure has caused the FDA to relax these standards and allow “small... (Read More ...)

Here is a Natural News Tip and it is one that affects your whole family, not just menopausal women.  Also something we probably don’t even think about.

Only buy completely fragrance-free toilet paper, and if possible, buy it made from recycled, non-bleached paper.
