Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Oct 08, 2019

This month, we are exploring simple ways to decrease our toxic exposures—toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and the radiation from our technologies—to protect our reproductive health. 

Do you have hormonal concerns? Hope to have children in your future? Are you a parent? Then you will want to pay special attention to this month's content.

Given that October is breast cancer awareness month, I'd like to spotlight how certain avoidable environmental exposures can contribute to increased risk of not just breast cancer, but also broader reproductive health issues. As evidence evolves, it raises a lot more questions about how toxic exposures from consumer products affect us, while underscoring a precautionary approach towards many avoidable environmental contaminants. 

How can toxic chemicals contribute to reproductive health issues? 

One key component to this highly complex issue is that many chemicals in household products are known endocrine disruptors. Endocrine disruptors can mimic, block, alter, and/or participate in hormone activities. This could have various effects that are still being studied, including fertility, timing of puberty and menopause, sperm quality, breast cancer risk, and other impacts on reproductive health. 

And what about cell phones in male pockets?

Another concern is not just toxic chemicals but also radiation from our technologies, including our cell phones and laptops. 

If you are interested in supporting male fertility in your life, below are two simple tips. 

  1. Men should avoid placing laptops on their lap. Studies suggest that laptops on male laps can impair sperm quality.
  2. And, as often as possible, turn off your laptop's WiFi. Studies have found laptops' radiation emissions to be much lower when WiFi is off.

Do something today!

The good news is that there are many ways to decrease unnecessary exposures to hormone-disrupting chemicals and unnecessary radiation (aka, EMFs for electromagnetic fields).

This can not only optimize your reproductive health, but also help lower your cancer risks: The World Health Organization reports that up to 30-50% of cancers are preventable, and that detoxing from toxic exposures can help with prevention.
