How the Individual, Society, Healthcare, and the Economy Suffers from Unregulated and Dangerous Chemicals
Last week, I provided a summary of the previous topics covered in my series on living in a toxic world and how it impacts our health in a variety of ways. You can access it here.
My latest post is the fourth in this sequence. In it, I explore how the chemicals that cause negative effects on the individual also detrimentally influence our healthcare system, economy, and society.
- An overview of several mechanisms that explain how harmful chemicals cause the derangement of our cells, our organ systems, and our overall wellness. I specifically use the example of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), ubiquitous compounds found in our food, beverages, and consumer products that possess estrogen-mimicking effects. EDCs have been associated with many hormonal and fertility risks and other multiple imbalances.
- How the health effects of EDCs and other chemicals lead to substantial financial burdens on our healthcare system and the domestic and international market.
- Various regulatory actions and amendments that could be taken on the national and global scale as possible solutions.
- What one can do on a personal level to protect themselves from harm and how to advocate for the advancement of consumer and environmental safety for their local, domestic, and world community.

By making people aware of the issues, we can spark change, but it is the action and intention behind it that will make the biggest difference. To benefit everyone, we must do better and provide current consumer and food safety regulations, policies, and educational opportunities that allow the world and its inhabitants to flourish.
