Why Puberty Is Occurring In Seven and Eight Year Old Girls

(HealthWyze) – The New York Times reported on a study which shows that puberty is occurring in much younger girls than previous generations.

Here are some of the health and environmental issues associated with consuming bottled water. Continue reading

MSM: Safe Claim Of Baby Bottle Chemical Rebuked

(CBS/ AP) The Food and Drug Administration’s assurances that a controversial chemical is safe for use in food containers are badly flawed, an independent panel of scientific advisers concluded in a report released Tuesday.

The chemical, known as bisphenol A, is used to make plastic for food packaging, baby bottles and other consumer and medical goods. Environmental groups want to ban BPA in products for infants because of concerns that it can interfere with their development.
