Effecten van toxische chemicalieën op kinderen (Engels)

It’s about time medical "experts" are finally recognizing the growing number of health problems resulting from contact with toxic chemicals.
It is shocking, but nevertheless, increasingly common for five and six year old children to go through precocious puberty. The signs of which include:
For girls before age 8:
§  Breasts
§  Armpit or pubic hair
§  First menstruation

For boys before age 9:
§  Enlarged testicles and penis
§  Armpit or pubic hair
§  Facial hair

Accidental contact with endocrine disruptors present in many household products and cosmetics, including:
§  Bovine growth hormones commonly added to commercial dairy
§  Soy products which are loaded with hormone like substances
§  Bisphenol A, commonly used in many plastics
§  Phthalates also commonly used in plastics
§  Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) — better known as Teflon
The disruption of your hormone system, and all of the consequences resulting from it, is a typical way that environmental toxins negatively impact your body.
No surprise, Congress told the EPA to develop a comprehensive screening program within three years a decade ago. The agency never got around to it, however, due to efforts to squash it by representatives from the chemical industry serving on a program committee.
If you have children this is clearly something you will want to avoid. Here are some measures you can take to protect you and your children from common toxic substances which will cause them to go into puberty more than a decade before they were designed to:
§  Store your food in glass containers whenever possible, as it is the most inert container you can use. 
§  Only use natural cleaning products in your home. Most health food stores will have these available or you can search online for them.
§  Buy and eat, as much as possible, organic foods, especially mik which is frequently contaminated with bovine growth hormone.
§  Avoid processed foods.
§  Switch to natural brands of toiletries, including shampoo, toothpaste, antiperspirants and cosmetics. Same sources as above for these, either your local health food store or you can search online.
§  Review Our Stolen Future, probably the best resource on this topic
