Why will they never be found at my house? They’re linked to having a smaller penis. Not that I have a penis or anything. I’d just rather be prepared in the event a penis finds its way into my house.
Phthalates have a host of negative health effects. Studies are finding that they:
– Increase oxidative stress on the thyroid by 30-35%.
– Linked to obesity, insulin resistance and yes, smaller penis size…
– Linked to asthma/allergies, ADHD symptoms, premature breast development in girls, premature birth and sterility.
– The heaviest/most obese children in one study had the highest levels of phthalates in their urine.
Phthalates are common in food packaging and it appears they leach into foods, such as milk and cheese. They are also common in cosmetics and household products- more than 70% of these contain phthalates.
