“Eating out increases levels of phthalates in the body, study finds…US research discovers 35% increase in levels of chemical linked to disease in those who dined at restaurants the previous day…Researchers investigating levels of phthalates in the human body, which have been linked to asthma, breast cancer, type 2 diabetes and fertility issues in the past few years, were found to be nearly 35% higher in participants who had eaten out the previous day compared with those who stayed at home…Phthalates are binding agents frequently used in food packaging as well as a number of other products including flooring, adhesives soaps and shampoos, and some forms of the chemical have been banned from children’s products in the US…Certain foods, including burgers and sandwiches, were linked to higher phthalate levels in the study, but only if purchased at a fast-food outlet, restaurant or cafe…The association was especially strong for teenagers, researchers found. Adolescents who frequently ate at fast-food outlets while out with their friends had 55% higher levels of the chemicals than young people eating at home…The scientists analysed data from the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) collected between 2005 and 2014…”
This study on deals with phthalates in plastics. The fact that the people who ate out had higher levels does not mean that the people who ate at home had low levels (only "lower").
Also, it does not deal with other gender-blenders, such as pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, BPA, etc.
It is past time for Christian pastors to wake up (20 years too late, but better late than never). May pastors and fathers and mothers take a lead in their churches and homes and save the children - spiritually and physically!
