French government pressures EU to take action on endocrine-disrupting chemicals

chemicals 

The modern-day consumer is inundated and assaulted by various endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Very little awareness exists. What are these chemicals doing to the human race as a whole? Expert health officials from the French government are pressuring the European Union to define these endocrine-disrupting chemicals and help raise awareness of the havoc they cause in destroying the human body's homeostasis.

Endocrine disrupters pose several silent risks to the human body

These endocrine-disrupting chemicals are basically limiting the human potential, to think, to reproduce and to ward off illness. These chemicals throw the endocrine system off balance, disrupting important glandular functions. Medical doctors only know how to send confused patients through various tests, diagnose their problems and prescribe them drugs that rarely get to the root cause.

One of the root causes of health problems people face today is the invisible war going on in the endocrine system -- the war on the hormone glands. This silent hormone war originates on many fronts; the pesticide industry, the plastic industry and the mainstream perfume and body care industries all unleash endocrine-disrupting chemicals into people and the environment. Consumers rarely understand how these chemicals disrupt their body's homeostasis.

It's a tough problem to fix, since many people use these endocrine-disrupting products on a daily basis; consumers are just unaware about the invisible dangers of how these chemicals accumulate in the body and restrict certain hormones from being produced. One of the clearest examples of endocrine disruption is evidenced by hysterectomies. Many times, hysterectomies are the medical system's response for women whose ovary glands struggle to keep producing a balanced amount of progesterone and estrogen.

Other common hormone imbalances are seen in men whose muscle and male body characteristics fail to form after the onset of puberty. The unbalanced androgen and testosterone hormone levels can completely stunt one's own gender development.
