Cosmetics toxicity exposure- Health risks assessment

Cosmetics toxicity exposure- Health risks assessment

Currently, there are than 84,000 ingredients used in cosmetics. More than 12,000 of them are industrial chemicals used as cosmetic ingredients. Some of them are reproductive toxins, known carcinogens, and endocrine disruptors. Cosmetic companies do not have a legal requirement to list all of the ingredients on the label. Since 1938 FDA banned 8 out of those 12000.

Arsenic exposure and meat consumption- The “Poison-Free” Poultry Act

Arsenic exposure and meat consumption- The “Poison-Free” Poultry Act

If we analyze arsenic pollution geographically, the U.S. is the number one most polluted place in the entire world. This is because arsenic-containing pesticides have been used in the farming industry for decades. Rice is not the main exposure source in the US. In the US around three-quarters of arsenic exposure comes from animal products directly and mostly from the chicken that is considered to be a “healthier” meat source. In second place is beef, then pork, hot dogs, eggs, milk.

Farmed fish- “Cesspool” paradise

Farmed fish- “Cesspool” paradise

Farmed fish have up to ten times the levels of pollutants than wild fish. Fish waste and also uneaten feed drop to the bottom beneath these farms and start to decompose. Also, the excrement of the animals themselves is used as fish feed. In order to cope with these conditions farmed fish are vaccinated as minnows. After vaccination fish is always on antibiotics and pesticides.

Fish toxicity- The most toxic meat

Most of the pollution is washed away from the land and will end up in the ocean eventually. If the pollutant is persistent it will remain in the ocean. The concentration in the ocean water will be low but the plankton and algae will filter the water and then the bioaccumulation in the food chain will begin.

Pesticides, GMO’s, and toxic overload.

Pesticides, GMO’s, and toxic overload.

Pesticides are neurotoxins for insects but not for humans. Exposure to these substances in the human population directly causes cancer and other tumors, leukemia, lymphoma, birth defects, infertility, and other reproductive problems, stillbirth, spontaneous abortion, sterility and infertility, brain and nervous system damage, damage to the liver, kidneys, lungs, and other body organs.

Tap water toxicity- Risk assessment

Tap water toxicity- Risk assessment

If we are living in a city where we are sure that the water source is pure this still does not mean that the water is “pure”. If we cannot escape chemicals in our food, we can try to eliminate them from the water we drink. By 2025, 1.8 billion people are projected to be living in regions with absolute water scarcity.

Environmental toxicity- It is just a food chain

Environmental toxicity- It is just a food chain

Living organism is like filter. It will pick up and filter everything that exists in the environment good or bad. The situation would not be serious even if the environment is polluted, but there is one process called bio-magnification. If we understand the food chain, the accumulation of toxins gets hundreds of times worse as we move up the chain.
