We live in a world full of chemicals. Contact with them is often difficult, if not impossible, to avoid. Some chemicals are endocrine disruptors. They interfere with the functioning of endocrine glands like the thyroid, pancreas, adrenals, ovaries, and testes. Some have been linked to birth defects and cancers, especially breast, ovarian, and pancreatic cancers. Here’s a list of the top 12 offenders:

  • Bisphenol A (BPA) - has been used in the manufacture of plastics and resins since the 1950s. Often substituted for with BPF or BPS, both of which are nearly as toxic. Found in plastic water bottles, food containers, inside coating of metal cans, and water supply lines. Use glass or metal bottles instead, avoid canned fruits and vegetables

Recently, the WHO and CDC began considering issuing an emergency declaration concerning monkeypox. This infection, unheard of by most, seemingly came out of nowhere overnight. Just as they did with COVID, news anchors are breathlessly reporting on the number of new cases. They seem to be trying to scare the hell out of everyone, even as they try to hang on to COVID as if it was still a real threat – it isn’t. To paraphrase WR Hearst, sensationalism sells newspapers. Risk of death from COVID is

 Among the various organs of the human body, the skin is one of the more interesting and diverse ones. The skin is much more than just a barrier. It is strong yet supple, fixes or regenerates itself when damaged, and it can change color to adapt to the climate. It is more active than many people realize; it synthesizes a number of compounds including immunoglobulin A, which is important to our immune defense system. The skin plays diverse roles in the body – it helps to regulate the body

According to the latest data from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey, 52% of U.S. adults reported using at least one dietary supplement in the prior 30 days, and 31% reported using a multivitamin-mineral supplement. The most common reason given for using supplements was for overall health and wellness and to fill nutrient gaps in the diet. If you have read this column before, then you know I often write about disease prevention strategies that are periodically reviewed by

I’m going to guess you missed it. Or, if you didn’t, you didn’t think much about it. I’m talking about a media report released in mid-June of this year that covered a research study done at Memorial Sloane Kettering (MSK). As usual, the media release occurred before the study’s publication, which occurred on June 23, 2022 (in the New England Journal of Medicine). The study involved a new treatment stratagem for patients with advanced colorectal cancers. In this small study involving a new

Most people are probably familiar with the placebo effect but may not be aware of its less popular opposite cousin, the nocebo effect. Recent research indicates that the mysterious nocebo effect may be more common than people, including medical professionals, think. The placebo effect occurs when someone, often a volunteer in a clinical trial, is receiving medication or having a procedure where both the medication and procedure is inert, yet they experience positive effects. The nocebo effect
