These are excerpts from a newsletter from William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
"Triclosan, an antibacterial agent found in soaps, detergents and even clothing, has been sucking the human endocrine system dry. And as it goes to work on your body, it's also helping to kill off common bacteria... while allowing powerful new ones to rise."
...The latest study found that young girls around the country have alarming levels of three frightening hormone-like substances that I've been warning you about: phenols, phthalates and phytoestrogens.
When researchers from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine studied urine samples from 1,151 girls between 6 and 8 years old from New York City, Cincinnati and northern California, they found high levels of all three of those "p's" in the pee.
I'll throw in one more "p" -- poison, because these awful chemicals will harm you and your family, especially your children and grandchildren.
...the troubling trio is everywhere. Phthalates are in plastics -- even toys -- as well as cosmetics. Phytoestrogen is the key hormone-like substance that makes soy so dangerous. And the most common phenol, BPA, is in just about everything -- including plastic bottles and can linings.
...phthalates are even helping boys to grow their own breasts -- to the point where some of them practically need bras themselves. (Read, "Why some boys have breasts.")
I've also told you plenty about BPA -- it's been linked to heart disease, cancer, obesity, asthma and all manner of sexual dysfunction in males and females alike. Soy is quite simply the world's most dangerous substance disguised as food.
There's no room for debate on this, and no time to wait for the feds to act. Avoid soy, plastics and cans as much as you possibly can.
And those aren't the only dangerous chemicals turning up everywhere. Keep reading...
linked to early pubertyAntibacterial madness could be killing us
We're so clean we're filthy. In fact, we're washing our way towards illness and death.
Triclosan, an antibacterial agent found in soaps, detergents and even clothing, has been sucking the human endocrine system dry. And as it goes to work on your body, it's also helping to kill off common bacteria... while allowing powerful new ones to rise... it's actually a pesticide, not a soap.
You've probably been washing with it for years, then eating with your "clean" hands.
The feds now say they're concerned about this chemical... but don't wait for them to save your skin. The FDA has been working on rules for the use of triclosan for 38 years -- so if they haven't figured it out by now, you're on your own.
Here's what you need to know -- what even the feds already admit to: This stuff is so dangerous it kills fish when it gets into the water.
And it's in the water -- because it's literally everywhere. Triclosan can be found in everything from clothing to cutting boards. Pretty much anything with the word "antibacterial" screaming from the label has triclosan in it.
It's so common it's in the urine of 75 percent of the population.
And yet people keep buying up that antibacterial soap in the mistaken belief that it must be better. After all, it costs more... so it must be good, right?
Studies have repeatedly proven that antibacterial soaps are no better than ordinary soaps.
That shouldn't surprise anyone past a certain age. We grew up without this stuff, and didn't face anything like the bacterial threat running rampant today.
So if you're looking to stay clean, just do what we did -- warm water and plain old soap.
