DO YOU KNOW THE HIDDEN AFFECTS OF CHEMICAL TOXICITY?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), some 80,000 human-made chemicals have been contaminating our environment since the beginning of the industrial revolution.

Studies have shown that most of us have accumulated between 400 and 800 chemicals within our fat and nerve cells. 

According to (WHO) chemicals and toxic metals like lead, mercury, arsenic, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, phthalates, and plastics like Bisphenol A (BPA) and Bisphenol S (BPS) have been shown to cause male and female neuro-endocrine brain dysfunction.

It has also been demonstrated that (BPA) & (BPS) imitate the role of oestrogen, and can cause problems in the embryological development of the fetus, and can disrupt the reproductive function in infants and children.

Studies have also linked heavy metals to Neurodevelopmental Disorders that are disabling a generation of children around the world. 

Consumption mostly occurs through foods and liquids stored in plastic bottles, containers and tin cans.
