These “Stealth Chemicals” Are Slowly Killing You

Remember all the things that were supposed to make our lives easier?

Things like microwave-safe dishes… canned foods… and stain-resistant clothing.

But lots of these modern “conveniences” are loaded with stealth chemicals that most Americans don’t know about.

They can slowly wreck your heart, and even put you on the fast track to diabetes.

These chemicals aren’t making life easier… they could be killing you instead.

Here’s how to stay safe.

We’re being poisoned by some of the simplest items in our homes.

A new study from the University of Adelaide and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) has shown that the plastic products we use every day are far more dangerous than we’ve ever expected.

The chemicals found in these items, known as phthalates, have now been linked to cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Phthalates are used to make plastic and vinyl more flexible, so they’re in nearly everything we touch… and eat… and wear… and use in our daily life.

The SAHMRI researchers tested 1,500 Australian men and found evidence of phthalates in the urine samples of 99.6% of those 35 and over.

That’s nearly all of them!

It’s safe to assume that the build-up of these chemicals only increases over time. Meaning that those of us over 65 are in even more danger.

Phthalates cause so many problems because they interfere with your endocrine system, which controls the hormones that regulate your body’s growth, metabolism, circulatory system, and sexual function.

There’s no way to live completely free of plastic poison but you can minimize your exposure.

Instead of packaged meals and bottled drinks (which come in containers loaded with phthalates), opt for fresh produce and drink from a glass.

Additionally, choosing natural (instead of synthetic) fibers for clothing can reduce your levels of phthalates.

Avoiding plastic altogether is a pipe dream, but being more conscious could save your life.
