bisphenol A

  1. Bisphenol-A is linked to prostate tumors

    BPA spurs deadly prostate tumors within two weeks

    It's ironic. Those tanned, musclebound meatheads at the gym work themselves into a lather trying to look more attractive to the opposite sex. But every time they stop their grunting and snorting long enough to take a swig from a water bottle, they're actually moving one step closer to being the opposite of a ladies' man -- impotent and in diapers.

    Unfortunately, lots of fellas could soon find themselves in the adult diaper section of their local drugstore thanks to a deadly, cancer-causing chemical our own government swears is safe. In a new study just published in the journal Endocrinology, researchers proved that bisphenol-A (BPA), the deadly hardening chemical used in water bottles and other food packaging, could cause prostate cancer.

    Researchers injected mice with human prostate cells and then exposed them to regular doses of BPA. And guess how long it took for the mice to start churning out prostate cancer cells like some Burmese sweatshop? Not 20 years of exposure. Not even two years of exposure. Nope, try just TWO WEEKS!

    It's just more proof that the FDA is full of garbage when it says that BPA is unsafe for babies, but somehow as safe as mom's chicken soup for the rest of us.

    If you've been reading the Daily Dose for a while, first of all, congratulations on your impeccable taste. And second, I hope you've been staying far away from BPA, since I've already told you the creepy chemical has been linked to everything from headaches to heart attacks.

    And now we can add prostate cancer to that list. So if you're not too keen on the idea of spending your golden years impotent and -- thanks to horrifying prostate cancer surgery ¬-- incontinent, do yourself a favor and make this the year you go BPA-free.

  2. The 'secret ingredient' that'll give you diabetes

    BPA linked to diabetes -- again!

    You don't need any help getting diabetes -- but you're getting it anyway with every bite, sip and swallow, and it's not just from your food.

    It's from bisphenol a, or BPA, the hormone-like chemical that seeps into your food whenever it's stored, served, or cooked in plastic containers.

    This junk has been linked to the disease plenty of times before, but the latest evidence is some of the most damning yet: Urine samples on some 4,000 people showed that when BPA levels are high, so are the odds of diabetes.

    Even after adjusting for all the usual risk factors -- like age and weight -- the people with the highest urine levels of BPA were 68 percent more likely to be diabetic than those with the lowest.

    Now, I have no doubt BPA is playing a role here. This chemical is a known endocrine disruptor, and diabetes is a disease of the endocrine system.

    1 + 1 = 2.

    But that's only part of the equation -- because diabetes is a disease you earn, something you work hard to get after years or even decades of bad habits... or what I call "following U.S. government guidelines."

    Those habits bring you to the brink... and BPA will give you a shove right over the edge.

    And that's not the only way it can "help." This stuff has been caught lurking in the shadows behind heart disease, obesity, sexual dysfunction and more... always ready to give you that extra push.

    Yet the chemicals industry keeps insisting that it's safe -- and the feds keep listening to them, because they STILL refuse to ban or even regulate this stuff despite admitting that there's cause for "concern." (Read their admission here.)

    "Concern" my rear end -- every day they're "concerned" is a day you're taking more risks due to their inaction.

    Stop waiting for them and do what you can to save yourself -- and that means swearing off ANYTHING that comes in a plastic container or a can.

    The best foods don't need packaging anyway -- they come wrapped only in butcher's paper.

    Keep reading for the one "food container" you DON'T need to worry about.

  3. BPA levels higher than anyone thought

    Researchers say you probably have roughly eight times the levels considered "safe" by the feds in your bloodstream -- but even that number is a wild underestimate, since there is no safe level of BPA.
  4. Your dentist is poisoning your child

    Dental clinics are like industrial waste zones. They're loaded with some of the most powerful poisons on the planet -- and mercury and fluoride are just the tip of the iceberg.
  5. Receipts covered in hormone-like chemical

    Here's a reality check for those of you who think you can avoid the toxic chemical bisphenol A: It turns out this toxic chemical has even been found in cash register receipts.
  6. BPA: It's in the can

    If you're eating and drinking from cans and bottles, you're poisoning yourself -- and if you're pregnant, you could be sentencing your baby to a lifetime of sickness and disease.
  7. Common chemical damages digestion

    While the feds keep fiddling, we have more science proving how a common chemical used in cans and plastic bottles is laying waste to our intestines.
  8. Common chemical linked to erectile dysfunction

    A study in China finds that bisphenol A – better known as BPA – can cause erectile dysfunction and other sexual problems.
  9. State attorney general gets deadly BPA out of bottles

    Six of the largest makers of baby bottles have vowed to stop selling bottles made with the chemical known as Bisphenol A, thanks to one crusading attorney general.
  10. BPA is here to stay… for longer than expected

    The news about Bisphenol A (BPA) keeps getting worse. A new study has found that the substance can linger in the body for a much longer period than was at first suspected.
