果真環境中到處都是毒?

超級市場常見的213種商品中,含有55 種對人體有害的化學物質

種對人體有害的化學物質

美國抗老醫學會最近〈2012年3月29日〉在其網站上貼了一篇文章,題目是:「瞎拚令人震驚」〈Shocking Shopping〉

美國研究人員發現在超級市場常見的213種商品中,含有55種對人體有害的化學物質,據信這些化學物質會破壞人體的內分泌和健康。

可怕的是,產品的標示中往往沒有將這些危害物質標示出來,讓人對這些產品沒有戒心,經常使用緊密的接觸,長期下來將導致內分泌紊亂、健康受損。

即使是宣稱「綠色」和「環保」的產品也不例外。毒素可從皮膚接觸、呼吸道進入人體,表示不一定是吃的才會影響人體的健康。

這些商品包括清潔用品、化妝品、浴室用的簾子、空氣清香劑…等等。

連環保要求最嚴格的美國都如此了,遑論台灣或中國的產品。看來,環境中到處都是毒,避也避不開。

我的想法是,人體其實也有代謝毒素的能力〈但是有一定的極限〉,倒也不必太緊張。

可以學學風水師的建議:能避則避,不能避則擋。意思是盡量不要用這些化學產品,另一方面,多運動、多蔬果,健康的作息來增進排毒能力。

能做的都做了,剩下的交給上帝吧!

有毒物質包括:
Parabens
Phthalates
bisphenolA
triclosan
ethanolamines
alkylphenols
fragrances
glycol ethers
cyclosiloxanes
UV filters

 

Fifty-five chemical compounds that are regarded as endocrine disruptors with potential risks to human health were found in 213 commercially available consumer products, including cleaning agents, cosmetics, air fresheners, dryer sheets, shower curtains, and other household goods. Researchers from the Silver Spring Institute (Massachusetts, USA) found that these products contained parabens, phthalates, bisphenol A, triclosan, ethanolamines, alkylphenols, fragrances, glycol ethers, cyclosiloxanes and UV filters.  The team noted that many such detected chemicals were not listed on product labels.   Importantly, the researchers tested both conventional and “green” products, finding that the distinction of “environmental” products did not affect the levels of endocrine disruptors present. Warning that: “Common products contain complex mixtures of [endocrine disruptor compounds] and asthma-related compounds,” the study authors conclude that: “findings raise cautions about potential confounding from co-occurring chemicals and misclassification due to variability in product composition.”
