The Disappearing Male: Are Chemicals to Blame?

So I am on a documentary kick right now. Here is another documentary that demonstrates the link between chemicals like Bisphenol A (BPA) and their effect on male genes. Currently, the FDA has not banned use of BPA (found in many plastics, can linings, etc.), even though they are now “warning” the public to avoid it.

Here are a few ways to avoid BPA:

1. Read labels. Many products are labeled BPA-free.

2. Avoid canned foods when possible. Eat fresh whenever possible.

3. Never microwave plastic. (NEVER!)

Please leave a comment about what else you can do.

The Downside of High – Is Marijuana Really Harmless?

A Canadian television network broadcast a documentary about the link between mental illness and the chemical THC in marijuana. Specifically, that marijuana can trigger schizophrenia. Very interesting and worth watching, especially since many people believe that marijuana is harmless. I am not saying that I am for or against it, but it is an eye-opening program. Click here to read about research being done and to watch episodes online.
