Comments Off on Beautycounter’s Gregg Renfrew on putting truth back in beauty

Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry.

Comments Off on Tooth Fillings with BPA Linked to Behavior Issues in Children

A new study from the New England Research Institutes in Watertown finds that kids who have fillings made using BPA are more likely to develop behavior issues.  Dental fillings  made with BPA are gaining in popularity because they are teeth-colored, as opposed to silver-colored. This of course isn’t the first health issue BPA has been linked to; the common chemical has also been linked to  autism , allergies,  obesity , hormone imbalances, and cancer.
