Why Men Matter Too | Switch2Pure
Why endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, and neurotoxins matter no matter your gender....
We all know men play tough, and certainly don't seem to be AS interested in skincare products, anti-aging and spa-like treatments. But, men are becoming more vested in their skincare routines and overall health and appearance. And we don't think that that is a bad thing. YAY!
Here is why they care and your man should too!
As a refresher endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. A wide range of substances, both natural and man-made, are thought to cause endocrine disruption, including pharmaceuticals, dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls and are found in many mass-marketed products.
"Some of the first adverse human health effects postulated to be connected to environmental estrogen exposure were disorders of the male reproductive tract. Nearly simultaneous reports of falling sperm counts, increased testicular cancers, and increased birth defects of the male genitalia suggested to scientists that all three were caused by exposure to excess estrogen. A likely source for the exposure was environmental estrogen." * The latest research shows that there are strong implications for the following to be related to excess exposure to endocrine disruptors....erectile disfunction, fertility and sperm count, prostate and testicular cancer.
It is thought that starting as early as pre-pregnancy matters for men. What pregnant moms expose their bodies to during pre-gestation and gestationally is thought to have lasting effects. Continued exposure from boyhood thru manhood has been related to hormone issues, thyroid problems, obesity and testicular issues and more.**
