Girls as young as 7 years old are now beginning to develop breasts and undergo other body changes that their mothers had not experienced until years later. The prime culprit for this new phenomena is bisphenol A, better known as simply BPA.
BPA is a colorless solid chemical compound which has two phenol chemical groups and is widely used to make polycarbonate polymers and epoxy resins used to make plastics. Prolonged storage as well as high heat cause BPA to leech out. When BPA is leeched into the human body, it mimics estrogen and can offset the delicate hormonal balance in the developing child.
Too profitable to fail?
So widespread has BPA become that it is now found in the vast majority of plastics used commercially today. Most containers and plastic bags contain the compound and it is even found in dollar bills and toilet paper. Most bottled water, which is often subjected to extreme temperatures, has an increased concentration of BPA in the water content. A majority of canned products contain BPA, used as lining for the insides of cans. Microwavable food often comes in containers or bags containing BPA and is especially susceptible to leeching due to high temperatures.
As Natural News reported in April, 2010, the average age that girls begin puberty currently stands at around ten years – a drop of more than a year in a single generation. Notably, a century ago the average age for the onset of puberty in girls was 16. Early onset of puberty in girls can cause a number of problems later in life due to hormonal imbalance, including increased risk of breast cancer. Studies have shown that risk of breast cancer is reduced by7 percentfor every year the onset of puberty is delayed.

A recent study has found that Monsanto’s Roundup pesticide may be responsible for causing infertility. After reviewing the many already well-documented negative impacts Roundup has on the environment and living creatures, it is no surprise to add yet another item to the list.
Researchers tested roundup on mature male rats at a concentration range between 1 and 10,000 parts per million (ppm), and found that within 1 to 48 hours of exposure, testicular cells of the mature rats were either damaged or killed. According to the study, even at a concentration of 1 ppm, the Roundup was able to affect the test subjects by decreasing their testosterone concentrations by as much as 35%.
How can such small levels of exposure have such a profound effect on the reproductive system? Roundup, being a glyphosate-based herbicide is also known to have endocrine disrupting properties.
Much like BPA, glyphosate-based herbicides have the ability to interfere with the natural hormonal balance in the human body, thereby introducing a number of health risks along with even the smallest levels of exposure. These chemicals are strong enough to affect your metabolism, behavior and mood, reproductive organs, and even provoke cancer.
As a result, any plants that are sprayed with roundup carry with them a chemical effect similar to that of other endocrine disruptors, offsetting the hormonal balance and causing adverse effects, despite even the smallest levels of exposure. This in part contributes to the number of males with increased fertility issues in more recent times.

Too many doctors are resorting to hysterectomies as a cure for a condition known as menorrhagia when other treatments are still available, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and published in BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Menorrhagia refers to chronic abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding that lasts for longer than a normal period. It may be caused by underlying health problems such as blood clotting, endometriosis, hormonal imbalance, and uterine tumors. The condition can be treated with drugs or, if those fail, with a minor surgery known as endometrial ablation, in which the inner layer of the uterus is removed. Hysterectomy, or the removal of the entire uterus, is recommended as a last resort only.
An estimated one in 20 British women between the ages of 30 and 49 visits a doctor each year because of heavy menstrual bleeding.
The researchers found, however, that rates of hysterectomy and endometrial ablation varied widely between different primary care facilities across England between 2003 and 2006. Rates of endometrial ablation for treatment of menorrhagia varied between 46 and 75 percent, while the rates of hysterectomy varied fourfold.
“The rates of hysterectomy have gone down in recent years but what we still find concerning is this fourfold variation between the regions,” said David Cromwell, from the Health Services Research Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
According to Tamir Mahmood of the same institution, the study shows that informed consent guidelines set down by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) are not always being followed. According to the NICE rules, women must be informed of all their treatment options before giving consent to any irreversible procedure.
“Women need to be informed of the risks and benefits of each surgical option before decisions are made,” Mahmood said.
