(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #298 - Endocrine disruptors: "In pisso veritas" (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 5 Nov 2019 10:11:12 +0200

The glyphosate scavengers (Read Libertarian Alternative, May 2019) gave the impetus by having their urine analyzed and showing that we are all exposed to this poison. But today, it's official: a study by Public Health has measured the massive presence of chemical pollutants in our bodies. ---- The study of Public Health France [1], published Tuesday, September 3, 2019, is based on the measurement of the presence of these pollutants called " everyday " - especially bisphenols, phthalates, parabens, glycol ethers, flame retardants brominated perfluorinated compounds - in the body of children and adults, from a large sample (1,104 children and 2,503 adults) representative of the French population.
These products are " present in the body of all French people " and " higher levels of impregnation are found in children ". These impregnations are done through, first of all the food, in particular via plastic packaging. But cosmetics and care products, various aerosols and industrial household products, materials for housing and furniture also contribute to our intoxication.

They are characterized as carcinogens or endocrine disruptors, ie involved in a wide variety of pathologies: obesity, lower intelligence quotient, lower male fertility, cancers of the reproductive system, increased risk of spontaneous abortions or malformations fetal. The impact of these products is not officially " encrypted ". There are signs of a massive impact on our health.

And a study published Wednesday, April 9, 2014 of the National Agency for Food Safety, Environment and Labor figures to " nearly 20 billion euros per year in France[...]the socio-economic cost generated, at least, by indoor air pollution " [2], and" would cause nearly 20,000 premature deaths each year ".

Another way to deal with these pollutions, that of the magazine 60 Million consumers : by analyzing most sprays, deodorants and indoor cleaners, it showed that most contain toxic substances and requires the establishment of a " Ménag 'Score ' which classifies household products according to their toxicity to health and the environment. A study by the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (ADEME) [3]encourages the use of " homemade " products.

Such solutions would no doubt allow the privileged fraction of the population to get away with it. But to protect us all we must fight as the association Generations future " to make the rapid disappearance of the substances pointed by these reports of Public Health France of our environment an absolute public health priority ".
