Hello Survivors! Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here to talk to you today about ways you can protect your body from harmful substances that are all around us. If you have picked up a bottle of water lately or consumed packaged, processed foods, you’ve ingested xenoestrogens. What are xenoestrogens, you might ask? They are arterial chemicals that when ingested by the body take on the same roles as estrogens. While this might seem strange to consider, these can actually have a significant, harmful effect on your body, and protecting yourself against their effects is one of the ways that you can preserve your health.
Bisphenol A, also known as BPA, is a chemical additive that has been used in plastics since the 1950s. It helps to make them more easily moldable and reactive to their environments. However, it has been revealed in recent years that this chemical can cause abnormal growth in fish and frogs, along with other wild animals. It is used in a wide range of common household products and is so widespread that even polar bears have tested positive for it.
What Can Bisphenol A Do?
Studies have shown that BPA can have tremendously negative effects on the health of animals and can encourage the appearance of more feminine physical traits. In addition, they can affect fetuses and their brain development and can may high blood pressure and prostate problems in adults. In short, they can be devastating to the health of anyone, and protecting against them is one step you can take to protect yourself before any SHTF scenario hits.
How Do I Protect Myself from BPAs?
The first and most important step you can take to protect yourself from BPAs is by reducing your exposure to them. Throw away any and all plastics that you can spare, and if you must use any, use ones that are BPA free. In addition, some filters are able to remove them on their own. TAAML activators mixed with hydrogen peroxide can cause BPA particles to clump, making them easy to remove, but this may be outside the reach for all but the most serious survivalists.
BPA is part of the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the soil we walk on. Removing as much as we can from our environments is one of the best ways to ensure our long-term health and survival.
