Pesticides and Prenatal Development

Filed under: toxins — Tags: organic pesticides, pesticide, pesticides — doctorsolve @ 11:21 pm

Three new medical studies from April 2011 reached a similar conclusion:  common plant and household pesticides have adverse effects on a prenatal’s future cognitive development. The studies tested different types of pesticides, including organophosphate (OP) pesticide, otherwise known as organic pesticide, which is utilized on fruits and vegetable, and chlorpyrifos (CPF), which is a popular pesticide used to kill insects and other pests.  Nonetheless, not all insect pesticides pose a threat to a prenatal’s future development.  For example, DEET, a popular insect and mosquito repellent pesticide, doesn’t seem to have any adverse effects on prenatal health, at least when applied in the doctor recommended small quantities.

How did the studies measure prenatal exposure to pesticides?

The researchers took urine and blood samples from mothers in their third trimester to analyze increases and decreases, caused by the presence of either OP or CPF, of certain metabolite levels.

How pesticides effect prenatal development:

The studies reached the following conclusions about how OP and CPF adversely affects a prenatal ‘s future cognitive development:

  • Exposing a prenatal to OP risks a decrease in mental development at 12 months.  Additionally, prenatal who are exposed to organic pesticides exhibit decreased perceptual reasoning.
  • Prenatal exposure to CPF results in an average IQ deficit of 7.0 points, as well as a memory deficit, when compared to their ‘unexposed’ seven year old counterparts.
  • Of course, overexposure to pesticides have been linked to childhood cancers, especially leukemia.
  • It is important to note that doctors have widely recognized for some time how vulnerable prenatals and babies are to pesticides and chemicals.  For example, doctors discovered in 2010 that premature infant inflammation was caused by phthalates, which are chemicals found in plastic.

Conclusions:

While clinical doctors warn against taking any study’s findings as absolute, when three studies arrive at the same result, the discovery can not be ignored.  As such, the researchers caution against CPF’s continued usage for agricultural purposes, particularly when pregnant women are at risk of exposure.  Moreover, a pregnant woman must take the necessary precautions to avoid both OP and CPF, in order to ensure the future healthy mental development of her child.

The Dangers in Your House

Filed under: toxins,Uncategorized — doctorsolve @ 7:28 pm

Purchasing a house is often a very significant moment in almost everyone’s lives. A house provides a person with shelter and a feeling of comfort and stability. However, lurking in your house are certain health hazards, and many of these are right out in the open.

These potential health hazards can generally be fixed fairly easily and are not expensive repairs. Simple daily household items may be changing your house from a safe place to a danger zone.

Mold – Mold can cause allergens, irritants, and harmful toxins. Always make sure to repair any water damage. Black mold can be especially dangerous and you may want to hire someone to dispose of this mold and search the rest of your house for any other mold growths.

Aluminum Cookware – Aluminum found in pots and pans may be able to leach into the foods that you eat. Aluminum can be very harmful when consumed, as it may damage your kidneys, liver, and weaken your bones. Some researchers suggest that aluminum may be able to cause Alzheimer’s disease.

Air Ducts – An easily missed part of your house that can become a real health hazard are your air ducts. Your air ducts may become the home of an enormous amount of dust, pollen, bacteria, and mold. This contaminated air is then sent throughout the house where it can become a real nuisance.

Lead – Lead can affect the brain and result in a lower IQ, memory problems, and increased aggression. Often, lead will be found in old paint, pipes, and soil. You may want to hire a professional to check for any lead contaminates.

Kitchen Sponges – These little sponges can become extremely dirty and they often carry a ridiculous amount of germs. Unless you take the time to regularly sanitize, a quick rinse does not count, than these tiny terrors may actually carry more germs than your toilet seat! You should fairly regularly replace these sponges with new ones, throw them into the dishwasher, or I’ve heard you can put them in the microwave for two minutes. I personally, like to just replace them.

Bisphenol-A – More commonly referred to as BPA, Bisphenol-A is a chemical often found in water bottles, cups, baby bottles, tin cans, and many other household products. BPA is a hormone-mimicking chemical use in polycarbonate plastics. In animal testing, BPA has been shown to increase the likelihood of prostate and breast cancer, the early onset of puberty in girls, and the chances of developing diabetes and obesity.

Which Candles are safe?

With the cold weather dark weather creeping in, its nice to light the house with candles. The scents and flickering lights are somewhat relaxing. Recently, however, there has been talk about candle fumes being unsafe. Most candles are made from oil which is bleached and mixed with dangerous toxins that are harmful to inhale. These candles are called Paraffin candles, and burning them will put toxins and carcinogens (cancer causing substances) into the air you breath. The EPA has recently confirmed that Paraffin candles contain some dangerous chemicals in large quantities that include carcinogens, neurotoxins, and reproductive toxins.

Which candles are safe to burn in the home?

A study presented at the American Chemical Society’s meeting in Washington D.C by R. Massoudi and Amid Hamidi found that the more expensive candles made from beeswax or soy are safer because they do not release harmful chemicals. Lighting one Paraffin candle occasionally will not harm you – but continuous use of paraffin candles for many years may increase the carcinogens that you consume.

It’s worth it to spend more money on Soy or Beeswax candles. They are safer for the environment and to those living in your home. In fact, soy candles have many benefits – the first being that they are not harmful to your health! Soy candles have the capability of lasting up to 50% longer than Paraffin candles, they are not made of foreign oil, they do not contain animal fats, and they are derived from a renewable resource. If you want to live healthy, try switching from Paraffin to Soy!

The Dangers of Everyday Products

Filed under: cosmetics,dangerous chemicals,makeup,toxins,Uncategorized — doctorsolve @ 1:13 pm


Although we use multiple products every day – including hair products, skin products, and cosmetic products, most of us are unaware of the dangers we face by exposing ourselves to the chemicals and toxins within them.

Deodorant – Deodorant is very acidic therefore it weakens the skin making it vulnerable to penetration. Most deodorants can contain ammonia, formaldehyde and phenol, which have been linked to cause cancer.

Shampoo and conditioner – can contain several mutagen inducing chemicals which are supposedly cancer causing.

Hairspray – has a toxin known as polyvinylpyrrolidine. During studies, researchers found that test rats developed tumours after being exposed to large amounts of this chemical.

Toothpaste – can contain carcinogens (radioactive chemicals which are linked to causing cancer) as well as resorcinol which may cause blood disorders and convulsions.

Mouthwash – can contain ethanol which may be linked to esophageal cancer

Makeup (Mascara, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner) – can contain carcinogens and dangerous toxins like Parabens and Benzoyl Peroxide

It’s not to say that by using these products you will develop cancer, high blood pressure or other severe ailments, however by avoiding these harsh substances you will be taking better care of your body, and better care of the environment. Before buying beauty products, consider checking the ingredient labels for any chemicals which may be harmful to you such as…

Benzoyl Peroxide, diethanolamine, monoethanolamine, triethanolamine, dioxin, imidazolidinyl urea, synthetic colors and pigments, parabens (methyl, butyl, ethyl, propyl), propylene glycol, and butylenes glycol.

Try to buy “green” or Natural products as alternatives to ones which may be harmful to you or to the environment.
