Why Organics are Important
By Charlene Plourde
The endocrine system is responsible for regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, sexual function and reproductive processes. Within the endocrine system, hormones are the major key players carrying out every function cell to cell.
The endocrine system and hormones are a delicate balance. Too much or too little of a hormone can adversely affect the body especially in children. They can affect a child’s weight, bone development and growth, sleep patterns, mood and energy level, brain function and puberty.
Known endocrine disruptors exist in personal care products and are not regulated by the FDA or any other governing body. They mimic our own hormones and trick our bodies having a negative impact. A developing child’s chemical exposures are greater pound for pound than those of adults. It takes only 26 seconds for chemicals to be absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. As the layers add up, so does the exposure.
Chemical endocrine disruptors have been linked to asthma, allergies, ADHD, cancer, obesity, reproductive issues, and they even pass into unborn fetuses. Studies have shown up to 163 chemicals in the bodies of pregnant women. As early as 2004 it was detected that umbilical cord blood is being burdened with toxic chemicals. In reality…..WE are becoming genetically modified.
