Household POISONS Are Making Us Fat!

Household POISONS Are Making Us Fat!

Let’s face it… lots of us are losing the “battle of the bulge.”

We try to eat right… and even exercise… but the pounds just don’t come off.

And there could be a VERY good reason why.

Our homes – and even our foods – are filled with toxins that literally force our bodies to be fat.

They’re part of a nasty family of chemicals called obesogens.

And if you’re looking to lose weight… and protect your health… you need to get them out of your life right away.

Obesogens are artificial chemicals that cause, you guessed it, obesity.

And they’re everywhere – from food packaging to baby bottles to cosmetics.

These chemicals are endocrine disruptors, which interfere with your hormones.

They activate your estrogen receptors and promote fat storage in both men and women.

Obesogens have even been linked to deadly diseases like breast cancer.

There are over 20 chemicals categorized as obesogens – full list here – but there are a handful proven to be the most dangerous of all:

  • Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a synthetic compound found in baby bottles, plastic food and beverage containers, and the linings in metal cans.

 

BPA’s structure mimics estradiol, a crucial component of estrogen. Because of this, BPA is able to bind to estrogen receptors inside your body and throw your hormones out of whack.

 

BPA is so dangerous, in fact, that other countries have set laws to reduce the amount of BPA in consumer products. The FDA, however, refuses to do anything about it.

 

  • Phthalates, which we covered here, are chemicals used to make plastic flexible. And they’re found just about everywhere: pharmaceuticals, baby food, beauty products, toys, paint, and countless household items.

 

Phthalates leach out of plastics and contaminate everything they touch – they’re even in the air we breathe!

They promote weight gain by affecting hormone receptors called PPARs, which slows your metabolism.

 

  • Organotins are chemicals found in industrial use, and they come in many forms.

 

They can be used as fungicide on water crafts, as wood preservatives, and in industrial water systems to prevent mold.

 

As a result, many small bodies of water are contaminated with these obesogens.

 

Organotins cause obesity because they signal stem cells to turn into fat cells. And they reduce the production of natural fat-fighting chemicals in your body.

 

  • Atrazine is an herbicide that has been shown to cause human birth defects.

 

And while it’s been banned in Europe for over a decade, atrazine remains one of the United States’ most widely used herbicides.

 

In fact, there is a clear correlation between areas where atrazine is commonly used and obesity within those communities.

 

You see, atrazine decreases your metabolic rate and increases abdominal obesity.

 

  • Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical found in all kinds of products – usually used with food and cooking. For instance, microwave popcorn, non-stick cookware, and anything made with Teflon.

 

No surprise here: more than 98 percent of Americans have PFOA in their blood.

 

And it not only causes obesity but has been linked to thyroid disorders, low birth weight, and other deadly disorders.

While it can feel downright impossible to avoid obesogens completely, there are a few easy ways you can reduce your exposure and avoid complications from these fat-causing chemicals.

First, be aware of how your food is stored. Avoid anything edible that has been stored in plastic containers (including water). Use stainless steel or cast-iron cookware instead of non-stick, and opt for glass bottles whenever possible.

When it comes to cosmetics and toiletries, always use organic, natural products.

And, of course, the same goes with your diet.
