Endocrine Disruptors: Definition and Issues

Endocrine disruptors are chemicals of natural or artificial origin foreign to the body. They may interfere with the functioning of the endocrine system and cause adverse effects on the body or an individual’s descent.

These substances can interfere with “the production, secretion, transport, metabolism, binding, action or elimination of natural hormones.”

Endocrine disrupters can act in different ways:

Imitating the action of a natural hormone;

  • By binding to the receptors of natural hormones;
  • By hindering or blocking the mechanism of production or regulation of hormones or receptors, thus altering the levels of hormones present in the body.

Some endocrine disruptors are compounds that are soluble in fatty substances (lipophilic), that is to say, they bind to fat tissue and can quickly accumulate in the fats of different species and thus contaminate a large part of the food chain. Thus, it is possible to determine PE in blood, adipose tissue, breast milk, amniotic fluid, cord blood or urine.

In-vitro studies have helped to demonstrate the interaction between these compounds and hormone receptors and to understand some of their mechanisms of action.

The effects of endocrine disruptors on human health are controversial, including their low-dose effect. Nevertheless, some conditions are now suspected to be the consequence of exposure to endocrine disruptors: decreased sperm quality, increased frequency of anomalies in genital tract development, reproductive function. The role of PE is also suspected for cancers whose development is influenced by hormonal mechanisms (hormone-dependent cancers).

Endocrine disruptors in the environment

  • Substances produced intentionally for their hormonal effect (synthetic hormones). It is the case, for example, with contraceptives or molecules used in the treatment of infertility;
  • Synthetic chemicals manufactured with various objectives, without the effect on the hormonal system being sought. It applies to organochlorine pesticides, herbicides, certain plasticizers (bisphenol A, certain phthalates), dioxins or related compounds (polychlorinated biphenyls, PCBs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), flame retardants and the like.
  • Natural compounds such as phytoestrogens present in a wide variety of plants (soybean genistein, mycotoxin present in cereal silos (zearalenone)…

Exposure to endocrine disruptors

In the general population, water and food (migration of substances from packaging, contamination of crop soils, hormonal residues in meat), but also air and cosmetics, are the primary sources of exposure to endocrine disruptors.

However, apart from accidents (explosion of a pesticide plant in Sevéso, for example), exposure to endocrine disruptors in the general population is low on a continuous basis.

Liberalism – The Political Identity of Death

“The greatest threat to world peace is abortion”. What a profound statement made by Mother Teresa when she accepted the Nobel Peace Prize.

Why is it the greatest threat? If a woman has the authority to kill her child, than who is truly safe in this world? Who can honestly say that laws allowing a parent to kill their child are laws that are productive for a society?

Well, there is one group in America that makes that statement, liberals. They have embraced a culture of death that has cost us more lives than World War 1, World War 2, and the Vietnam War combined. It has taken the lives of nearly 56 million little children since it had been legalized in 1973!

Who knows how many have been slaughtered before that?

culture of death

Yet, somehow, the liberals want to say it is the conservatives who are part of the culture of death.

The culture of death must stop…now!

There has been a decrease in human population now that abortion has been made legal.

These are people who could have been productive members of society, people who could have paid taxes to the state, and work on better the world we live in. We are at a place in our society now where we must choose, do we allow for the slow deterioration of our species and our morals, or do we stand up for what is true, what is right, and what is just?

It is time we stand up and boycott liberalism, and it’s agenda of death.

If we don’t, who will? The innocent children that are being killed every day?

They cannot defend themselves. They have no say in the matter of who gets elected, who gets killed, who gets to grow up and become something in this world. The only crime they have ever committed was the “crime” of being conceived in the womb.

Is that a crime? No! And now is our chance to stand up and say it.

Here is what you can do to help fight the culture of death.

First and foremost, know that the liberal agenda of death is wrong. It is wrong morally, socially, and logically. Do not be afraid to confront a liberal to their face about this. In fact, call the liberal out in front of others to make the experience more enjoyable.

life vs death

They will paint you out to be the wrong person, saying you do not care about the rights of women. The best thing to do in those situations is turned it right back on them and show how they do not care about the rights of little children. It is also important here, to make sure they know that what is inside the womb is fully human. Never concede to their point and always ask questions. That is the best way to expose their faulty logic and reasoning.

It is then important to contact your representative, your senator, and even the president. Get as many people as you can to join the fight. Boycott those elected officials and let them know if they continue to make laws that allow for the killing of innocent children, then your vote will go elsewhere, and mean it!

This is so important. If you make empty threats, they will continue to do what they are doing because they are being allowed to by the people. Remember, we have the power to end this, and all it takes is a simple vote. Don’t be afraid to use it.

Final Thoughts

Do not get discouraged friends. We the people still have control of the government, if only we take a stand. Boycott the culture of death that is known as liberalism. Do not ever give up on the good fight. We can do this if we stand together.
