“Your father fell off the roof…headfirst…”
—-Important Message From Alex Bradford—-
This energy mineral brought my father back to life after heart attack
Doctors said he would never recover…
His heart was only functioning at 60%…
They pretty much gave up on him… but I refused to.
And now Dad’s running circles around his friends…
Throwing his grandkids around in the pool…
I’m thinking I’ll have to have the “no motorcycle” talk with him soon…
In fact, I called him this morning and he had to cut our call short because he was late for his tee time at the golf course!
It’s amazing really.
And it’s all thanks to this newly discovered energy mineral that brought my father back to life
Beware these household items hiding harmful nanoplastics
Plastics are everywhere.
From the foam in our car seats to the packaging at the supermarket…
…to the toothbrush you use to brush your teeth, you can’t get away from plastics.
It’s not all bad.
Plastics have improved our lives in major ways including food safety, and many products that would be impossible without plastics.
Plastics also break down in our environments in ways that are scary.
These plastic particles are so small that they can potentially get into our systems and travel through our bodies and even into our cells.
The smallest particles are called nanoplastics.
A study from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona took a look at how nanoplastics travel through the body of a living organism…
…and what they found certainly made me sit up and take notice.
The researchers studied how these tiny plastic particles travel in the guts of the Drosophila melanogaster fly.
This is an animal that is used extensively in this type of research to model what happens in humans.
What the researchers found was that nanoplastics can cross intestinal barriers and get into blood cells of these flies.
They are so small that they cross barriers that are normally quite protective.
The “photographic report” obtained has allowed them to see the interaction of MNPLs with the microbiota and cells of the membrane that recovers the inside of the intestines, their ability to cross the intestinal barrier and their presence in haemolymph, which is equivalent to blood in humans, and in blood cells, which correspond to our lymphocytes.
They also found that nanoplastics alter the expression of genes in these flies.
These plastics are actually changing the flies at a genetic level.
To have a man made substance altering genes in ways we don’t understand is scary!
The evaluation of the biological effects at different stages of the larvae’s life showed that, although no significant toxicity was observed, the exposure produced a broad molecular response, altering the expression of genes involved in the general response to stress, oxidative damage and genotoxicity, as well as in genes related to the response to physical damage on the intestinal barrier.
It’s not limited to flies!
The researchers believe that these nanoplastics can also break down the biological barriers in humans.
“Our work adds information on what happens, in terms of effects, when the exposure is to nanoplastics, which, due to their small size, are of particular relevance to us, because of their greater capacity to break down biological barriers and produce toxicological effects that can affect the health of organisms, including humans,”
I can’t even tell you how alarming this is.
Humans have a huge amount of genetic switches (epigenetics) that can be turned on or off depending on our environments.
Add to that the fact that plastics are extremely hormone disrupting and estrogenic…
…and you have a recipe for real problems with human biology because of the nanoplastics in our environments!
Unfortunately, getting rid of all plastic exposure in the modern world is nearly impossible.
Plastics make up the computers we use, fibers of our clothes, a lot of building materials and more.
But one thing you can do to limit plastic exposure is to eat off of ceramic, glass, and metal…
And use cookware that doesn’t have a non-stick coating.
Plastics break down into your food and water and then you consume them.
Personally, I never drink out of plastic water bottles or disposable coffee cups – even the paper ones are lined with plastic.
I just don’t think it’s worth the risk.
—-Important Message About Using Items Lined with Plastics—-
Are you using these items — toxic to your testosterone?
Believe it or not, there are even worse things than nanoplastics hiding in your everyday items…
Toxins like BPA tank testosterone and cause cancer — and BPA is hiding in all sorts of stuff…
Magazines, water bottles, cookware, receipts from the store…
Even your toilet paper!
