Pesticide Action Network. If there is a single pesticide almost everyone can name, it's DDT.

Pesticide Action Network

DDT was one of the first chemicals in widespread use as a pesticide. Following World War II, it was promoted as a wonder-chemical, the simple solution to pest problems large and small. Today, nearly 40 years after DDT was banned in the U.S., we continue to live with its long-lasting effects: The effect of polysorbate 80 on brain uptake and analgesic effect of D-kyotorphin. Abstract The effect of the non-ionic surfactant, polysorbate 80, on the blood-brain barrier was investigated by using an in situ brain perfusion technique.

BPA chemical in plastic found in 90% of teenage bodies

Bisphenol A (BPA) is found in plastic containers and water bottles, on the inside of food cans and in till receipts. The chemical, used since the 1960s to make certain types of plastic, mimics the female sex hormone oestrogen, and has been linked to low sperm counts and infertility in men, as well as breast and prostate cancer. A study by the University of Exeter, whose researchers tested urine samples from 94 teenagers, found 86 per cent had traces of BPA in their body.

If you are not yet aware of the potential dangers of triclosan, you should know that this antibacterial agent has been strongly linked to the following effects on human health: Abnormalities with the endocrine system, particularly with thyroid hormone signaling Weakening of the immune system Birth defects Uncontrolled cell growth Unhealthy weight loss Scientists fear pregnant women who are exposed to high levels of triclosan, may be putting their babies at risk. Dispersants.

Chemical dispersants were sprayed in unprecedented quantities in the Gulf as part of the response to the BP oil spill.


The toxic effects of these dispersants on marine life and humans provide yet another illustration of the dangerous environmental impacts of offshore oil drilling and why it must be stopped. What are dispersants and why are they used in oil-spill response? Dispersants are chemicals that are sprayed on a surface oil slick to break down the oil into smaller droplets that more readily mix with the water. Dispersants do not reduce the amount of oil entering the environment, but push the effects of the spill underwater. While dispersants make the oil spill less visible, dispersants and dispersed oil under the ocean surface are hazardous for marine life.

Dispersants were being used in the BP oil spill to reduce the chance that the surface oil slick would reach shoreline habitats like marshes and mangroves or come into contact with animals at the surface. Risks to humans. Facts About Chlorine. If you have ever taken a prescription medicine, driven a car or drunk tap water, you likely have been exposed to chlorine.

Facts About Chlorine

Chlorine, element No. 17 on the Periodic Table of Elements, has multiple applications. It is used to sterilize drinking water and to disinfect swimming pools, and it is used in the manufacturing of a number of commonly used products, such as paper, textiles, medicines, paints and plastic, particularly PVC, according to the Royal Society of Chemistry. Moreover, chlorine is used in the development and manufacturing of materials used in products that make vehicles lighter, from seat cushions and seat covers to tire cords and bumpers, according to the American Chemistry Council. The element is also used in organic chemistry processes — for example, as an oxidizing agent and a substitution for hydrogen, according to the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Glyphosate levels were as high as 30 micrograms per liter, even in beer that is supposed to be brewed from only water, malt, and hops.

Flavorings-Related Lung Disease - NIOSH Workplace Safety and Health Topic. This topic page provides a resource for findings and recommendations by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to reduce the risk of severe obstructive lung disease (obliterative bronchiolitis) associated with occupational exposures to flavorings.

Flavorings-Related Lung Disease - NIOSH Workplace Safety and Health Topic

Background In August 2000, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services requested technical assistance from NIOSH in an investigation of bronchiolitis obliterans (also known as obliterative bronchiolitis) in former workers of a microwave popcorn plant in Jasper, Missouri.

Michael Green, an environmental health executive and father of a feisty toddler named Juliette, worked to rid his cabinets of baby bottles and plastic cups containing the additive bisphenol A (BPA), which mimics estrogen and has been linked to serious health problems like cancer, diabetes, miscarriages and obesity. Green switched to BPA-free plastics to solve the issue, but was alarmed when he found research suggesting some of these “healthier” bottles and cups contained synthetic estrogens as well. To get a more definitive answer, Green turned to the company he runs, the Californ0a-based Center for Environmental Health, to see just what additives were used to form the BPA-free plastics.

Mother Jones reports: The center shipped Juliette’s plastic cup, along with 17 others purchased from Target, Walmart and Babies R Us, to CertiChem, a lab in Austin, TX. More than a quarter—including Juliette’s—came back positive for estrogenic activity. Cancer-causing formaldehyde found in hair treatment products - Friday, May 09, 2014 by: L.J.
