Gender-Bending Plastic Plague
Gender-Bending Plastic Plague
Is PLASTIC POISONING partly to blame for the surge in the number of people who are confused about their sexuality and even their gender? Almost 90 per cent of teenagers have gender-bending chemicals from plastic in their bodies, according to a shocking study.
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 and various behavioral disorders.
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.
Experts fear it is all but impossible to avoid the chemical, given the widespread use of plastic packaging for food.
According to the study’s co-author Professor Lorna Harries: ‘Most people are exposed to BPA on a daily basis. In this study, our student researchers have discovered that at the present time, given current labelling laws, it is difficult to avoid exposure by altering our diet. In an ideal world, we would have a choice over what we put into our bodies. At the present time, since it is difficult to identify which foods and packaging contain BPA, it is not possible to make that choice.’
The European Chemicals Agency last year reclassified BPA as a substance of ‘very high concern’ because of its ‘probable serious effects’ on human health.
Used to harden plastics, it has been linked to type 2 diabetes and heart disease, as well as declining male fertility.
Although it is also found in till receipts, sunglasses and CD cases, the main way people are exposed is through plastic packaging whose chemicals leach into food.
Researchers have made strong associations between exposure to BPA when we are young and changes in behaviour, including disrupted brain development in children, along with increased probability of childhood asthma.
That said, the impact of early exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals like BPA may not become apparent until much later in life. It can even affect future generations because it can have a damaging effect on female reproduction, and has the potential to affect male reproductive systems.
A large number of scientific studies have associated BPA with numerous health problems including early puberty, obesity, infertility, the inhibition of insulin, hyperactivity and learning disabilities. It has also been connected to a possible increased risk of breast and prostate cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Finally, there is of course the likely impact of feminisation chemicals that no ‘mainstream’ researcher would even dare to mention: Does this also help explain the explosion in homosexuality, transexualism and submissive ‘feminine’ traits in more and more young males? Obviously pro-gay brainwashing must play a role, but is it only boosting the impact of plastic poisoning?
