Using a credit card may be dangerous to your child’s health.

Researchers have linked exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) in pregnant women to behavioral changes in their newborn children. Girls became more aggressive and boys became more anxious and withdrawn.  One researcher noted that the magnitude of these changes was similar to the IQ drops attributed to lead exposure in children.

The richest sources of BPA exposure? Plastic food containers, cash register and credit card receipts.

This is another example of the thousands of ways we are exposed to toxic chemicals in our everyday lives and why we benefit from ongoing detoxification therapies.

Prevention: Don’t eat food that has been in contact with plastic, including the lining of metal cans. Avoid handling industrial chemicals. Hand washing isn’t just for killing germs, but also removes toxins.

Home Treatment: For daily exposure to synthetic chemicals, fortify your detoxification processes with antioxidants such as vitamin C, zinc, and phytonutrients from fruits and vegetables.
