What do you do when the cashier hands you a paper receipt?
For many of us, we just stuff it into in our wallet or pants pocket without a second thought.
According to a new study, BPA (still used in the manufacturing of many cash register paper receipts) is transferred from the paper to the skin even after only handling it for only a few seconds.
There are many dangerous and toxic chemicals lurking in the everyday items we use.
From our shampoo, toothpaste, body wash, shaving cream to even the vinyl shower curtain, many products found in our bathroom contain chemicals which are not only unhealthy but can significantly impair our male and reproductive health.
Men everywhere need to pay special attention to these items.
Chances are you will find at least a few of these items lurking in your bathroom.
You may want to think twice after reading this.
A study conducted by the Goethe University of Frankfurt and German Federal Institute of Hydrology found over 24,000 chemicals in bottled water (now it is worth mentioning that in the United States, tap water is better regulated than bottled water).
In this study, even more disturbing were many of the chemicals found in bottled water have also been shown to be endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDC) such as di(2-ethylhexyl) fumarate, or DEHF.
Unlike bisphenoal-A (BPA) an estrogen-mimicking chemical used in the production of many plastic products (which is already banned in many countries), the chemical DEHF found in bottled water is completely unregulated.
Researchers in this study found 13 of the 18 bottled water products tested exhibited “significant” anti-estrogenic activity, while 16 of the 18 samples were found to inhibit the body’s androgen receptors by up to 90%.
This is very bad news for men.
