How many of you are still using perfume or products with fragrance on the label? One of my big goals is to get as many of the people I love (if you’re reading this, you’re included!) to ditch these products because here’s the deal: FRAGRANCE STINKS. Why does it stink so much? Because currently there is a giant loophole in labeling laws that allows companies to hide 4000 different ingredients behind that single word and claim that it’s a trade secret. Companies aren’t even required to release that info to the FDA, so if consumers want to know what’s in there, they have to pay for lab testing! What those lab tests have revealed are ingredients linked to certain types of cancer, infertility, ADHD, developmental delays, PCOS, endometriosis. We know that some of these ingredients disrupt our whole hormonal system which regulates our health even at very low doses. But here’s some really great news: SB 574, the Safer Fragrance Bill is heading to the Senate floor in the California State Legislature later this month. If passed, SB 574 would require the disclosure of fragrance ingredients in personal care products, the first bill of its kind in the U.S.! And because California is such a huge market, this will change everything! Are You a California Resident? Text SAFERSCENT to 52886 to send an email urging your state senators to vote in support of SB 574. Not in California? Send our text action above to family and friends in the state and let them know! And if you’re still using fragrance and want to ditch it, let’s chat!
Did you know that drinking out of plastic coffee lids can expose you to BPA. The hot drink can leach the BPA into your yummy drink. This is really bad news if you have a immune response to BPA. One way to see if you are immune reactive to BPA is through a laboratory called cyrex labs. But even if you aren’t BPA is no good regardless! Where are other areas in your life where you can reduce your exposure to BPA or other chemicals? #alicaryannutrition#chemicals#bpa#coffee#coffeelids#gigharbornutrition#pnwnutrition#healthy#nutrition #nutritionaltherapypractitioner #cyrex
My preferred coffee shop has compostable cups and a little splash stick instead of a long one that touches the coffee. Hot plastic leaches toxic chemicals into the liquid or food that it touches. Coffee is acidic and causes further leaching. A half stick doesn’t touch the liquid. I can wash mine and use it over and over. Pretty neat! I don’t always have coffee out, but when I do, I appreciate the thought put into the process.
Bisphenol A (BPA) and Bisphenol S (BPS), often used in replacement of BPA, are endocrine disrupting chemicals used to make polycarbonate plastics. 🎞 Endocrine disrupters refers to chemicals able to mimic or interfere with the normal function of hormones. 🎞 These epoxy resins are found in food and beverage packaging (packaged meat, canned goods, water bottles, baby bottles, juice and tea cups), medical devices, straws, & thermal printed receipts. 🎞 Fantastic post by @plateful.health! ・・・ 🙅🏻♀️Let me start by saying that plastic should be avoided. However, for some of us, it is not always possible. So which plastics are “better” and what do these signs mean? . These signs were originally designed to identify the type of plastic used so we know which ones can be recycled and reused (eg 1,2,4,5) . . However, I’ve lumped them by potential toxicity. Avoid those on the right... ones on the left are ‘safer’ but doesn’t mean they are 100% safe. . ☠️Plastics can leach chemicals, particularly if exposed to sun, heat, repeated use, abrasives; some are better than others. . 👩🔬Here are some common uses of these by the number you see inside the triangle: . . 1- (this is usually deemed safe but because arsenic is used in manufacturing, I put it on the right hand side) - soft drinks, water bottle, nut butter jars. These are single use so recycle them but do not re-use them. . 2-milk jugs, juice and detergent bottles. Considered the safest, and most stable (ie less breakdown). . 3-Cling film, food wrap, PVC pipe, teething rings and toys 🤬 - major source of phthalates, avoid. . 4-Frozen food bags, squeezable bottles, Cling film - consider replacing ziplocks with silicone bags like @stasherbag or fabric bags (make sure the coating is food safe eg @lunchskins ). . 5-reuseable microwaveable ware, kitchen ware, disposable plates and cups- more heat resistant than others so considered safer. . 6-styrofoam cups, plates, disposable

¿POR QUÉ NO SON RE-USABLES LAS BOTELLAS PET? SOLO en EEUU está prohibido el uso de BPA y en los productos de lactancia y maternidad en Europa. El BPA se encuentra en los envasados y empaquetados plásticos de pet, es un aditivo que se utiliza para endurecer plásticos y se ha demostrado también que si el plástico se somete a temperaturas muy altas se multiplica la liberación de este. Este aditivo segun estudios se ha demostrado que causa efectos negativos en tu salud. En nuestro caso, en Yucatán por tener temperaturas tan altas se libera constantemente este aditivo. #health#bpa#plastic#zerowaste#plasticfree#eligealplaneta#vegan#vegetarian#globalwarming#reducecarbonfootprint#carbonfootprint
“Don’t bite the boob that feeds you” . . You can get these teething necklaces instead. When I was breastfeeding I struggled with the pinching, hair pulling and all sorts. That’s why I think these necklaces are ideal. They keep the baby entertained while breastfeeding and, when they start teething, they can use them as pain relief. Hygienic as well as practical. BPA silicone beads that you don’t need to wash every five minutes as they’ll never fall on the floor. These are mother and baby accessories to be worn only by adults, never the child/baby. . . I’ve made these combinations but there are others available if you want something different. Please DM to order. Thank you!! . . #sewyarnilicious#handmade#teethingnecklaces#breastfeeding#motherandbaby#babyessentials#babygirl#babyboy#eidgift#accessories#siliconebeads#bpa#safebabies#necklace

Voiiceover sesh went pretty well for the new classification video for @paralympicsgb_official Although, have to ask - can you get sick of your own voice? (I did) 😜 #athcomm#bpa#paralympicsgb e#classification
👉 Um recente trabalho da #usp demonstrou a influência do #bisfenol A em desregular os hormônios #tireoidianos. O Bisfenol A, também conhecido pela sigla #bpa, é um composto muito utilizado para fazer plásticos de policarbonato e resinas epoxi, sendo comumente utilizado em recipientes para armazenar comida, garrafas de água e de refrigerantes e em latas de alimentos em conserva. ⠀⠀⠀ 👉 No entanto, quando esses recipientes entram em contato alimentos muito quentes ou quando são colocados no microondas, o bisfenol A presente no plástico contamina o alimento e acaba sendo consumido juntamente com a comida. ⠀⠀⠀ 👉 No organismo, o BPA se comporta de maneira semelhante ao #estrógeno, um hormônio feminino. Ele interfere diretamente no funcionamento de algumas glândulas endócrinas e pode aumentar ou diminuir a ação de vários hormônios naturalmente produzidos pelo corpo, trazendo danos como #infertilidade, alteração no desenvolvimento de órgãos sexuais, #endometriose e câncer. ⠀⠀⠀ 👉 Para evitar a ingestão do #bisfenola, deve-se ter alguns cuidados, como não aquecer os alimentos guardados em recipientes de plástico no microondas e comprar produtos de plástico que não contenham essa substância, sempre com o selo "BPA FREE".
Posting this was super hard, but if it helps someone, let it be. This is me in February 2017 and me today, two years later. I am not wearing make up in neither of the photos (duh on the left one). My hormones were out of control 2 years ago and to be honest, I don’t have a magic pill that helped me. The photo on the left is actually just after I stopped taking #metformin. Other than helping me lose some weight, it didn’t do much more. What did help: 1. I really, I mean really cleaned up my diet. I always ate healthy but I eliminated all processed foods, sugar, omega 6 fats and soy. I mostly eat vegetables, seafood, whole grains and healthy fats. If I do eat dairy and eggs (rarely) it’s only organic. 2. I got rid of all chemicals not only in my household products and beauty products, but also in my food containers and drink bottles (especially #bpa) 3. I supplement with #turmeric and I believe in it more than in ANYTHING. It helped regulate my periods, make them less painful, it helps with water retention too. 4. MOST IMPORTANTLY. I started taking care to eliminate stress from my life - both physical and emotional. I used to push myself much harder at the gym 2 years ago, until I hurt my back and was forced to slow down. I do pilates and swim now, plus a bit of light lifting. I started meditating and try to stick to it in my daily routine. I started reading things that help me switch off my mind, or ones that make me see the bigger picture in life and make everyday problems seem insignificant. I cannot emphasize more how important coming to peace with yourself is to curing #pcos . I’ve recently started a more wide ranging approach (my DHEA is still elevated and I have some weight left to lose) - I introduced #inositol#ashwagandha#sawpalmetto and eliminated #plastic COMPLETELY from my life. I will keep updating this profile with my progress. Let’s support each other girls. Let’s share best practices. Let’s be each other’s lab rats. The doctors
I heard a story from Sara Blakey, the woman who invented and founded Spanx (which is now valued at over $1bn 😲) about how at dinner time, her dad would have them go around the table and tell about one thing that they had failed at that day. Not to shame them, but because he wanted to normalize failure and struggle. I love that so much! One of my greatest hopes is try to help my kids be unafraid of failure because fear of failing or looking dumb held me back from so much for so long. I am working on sharing with my kids when things don’t turn out the way I hoped, which happens SO much when you’re trying to build something. So many no’s. Lots of times of planning an event and having no one show up. So much learning from so many mistakes. I think self-compassion is pretty magical here because once you remove the threat of having to spend a bunch of time beating yourself up when things don’t go as planned, you have so much more freedom to just try and learn from whatever happened. How could anything ever be a failure if you learn from it?? That said, in the interest of normalizing failure, what’s one thing you failed at this week? Let’s celebrate that we even tried!

According to research, Bisphenol A (found in plastic bottles) can bind to estrogen and androgen receptors and have anti-androgenic and estrogenic effects on male reproductive system, thereby altering the normal production of steroid hormones responsible for testicular function. BPA can alter gonadotropin levels which in turn can cause decreased luteinizing hormone (LH) production. Since LH is responsible for the stimulation of Leydig cells to produce testosterone, a hormone responsible for sperm production and maturation, reduced LH levels can compromise spermatogenesis. Some animal studies show that even low exposures to BPA during fetal life can alter androgen function and have negative impacts on male reproductive organs. These studies demonstrated that low dose administration of BPA in rats can reduce reproductive hormones (FSH, LH, GnRH); and stop germ cell meiosis, thereby leading to reduced testes and prostate gland weights, decreased serum testosterone levels and abnormal spermatogenesis.
