Plastic Is Killing Our Children!

December 20, 2009

Many are destroying our children with poison and they do it legally! If the scenario that follows represents the path of life, then do it. You have a baby and feed her milk in a warmed up plastic bottle. You give it plastic teething toys to bite on. All their toys are made of plastic and they often find their way into the baby's mouth. After some time passes, the child graduates to the "Sippy Cup", which also often heated. Cereal and mashed potatoesFruits and vegetables are heated in a plastic bowl. If the child is out of his food packaged in plastic containers. It is given water and milk from plastic containers. As parents on the go, the food is often quickly heated, plastic container in the microwave. In school, all food products consumed are bought and stored in plastic. The hot dog is topped with spices, wrapped everything in plastic. Any food in the house are in plastic containers. If this is yourLife, you are poisoning your child and yourself.

The average consumer is led to believe that all these plastic products are safe. The plastic manufacturers claim that they are safe and the government has sided with a lot of money. There are some stories in the news about the danger of some plastic products, but as a whole, the industry still claims that their products have little or no danger. However, there are some keys to information that has not been given adequate MessageCover. According to a study by the University of Rochester, many plastic products contain endocrine disrupters. This will disruptors in the system by drinking from plastic bottles and they mimic the effect of female hormones. Called polyethylene terephthalate, this substance increases female hormones in boys and leads to an increased risk of cancer and early onset of puberty in girls. The average boy today has a sperm count half of his grandfather.

An early red flagabout the dangers of plastic was increased in 1999 by ABC's 20/20.
Bisphenol A (or BPA) has been singled out in this particular chemical. In laboratory experiments have shown that union, that small amounts of the additive BPA leach from plastic baby bottles and end with baby milk. "The effect is of concern, here is an interruption of the development process. This could affect intelligence. One might influence behavior. It could affect the ability to learn. It can impair fertility,Fertility many years after the exposure occurs. "One can only wonder if the growing epidemic of ADHD is linked to the use of plastics.

Linked In an article by Jeremy Jacquot known as "Chemical Found in Plastic with reproductive disorders," BPA is the first time since the female reproductive disorders in a very clear statement of 38 scientists and published online in the journal Reproductive Toxicology published connected. "After checking in the vicinity of 700 studies, the scientistsfound that people who are regularly exposed to BPA levels that it is dangerous for the animals more vulnerable as a laboratory – separation infants and fetuses than most. The statement was by a new National Institutes of Health (NIH) accompanying study, which found that uterine damage caused by BPA exposure in newborn animals might predict a range of reproductive disorders in women – including endometriosis, cystic ovaries, fibroids and cancer . "

In December 2007 CNN's Health Watch found that"There is little doubt that the chemical can disrupt the hormonal system, but scientists differ markedly whether very low doses found in food and beverage containers can be harmful. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the side of the Plastics Industry, that BPA-based products do not pose a health risk. "The report noted that" With more than 6 million pounds produced in the United States per year, bisphenol A, found seals the vessels of food cans, CDs and DVDs, eyeglassesand hundreds of household goods.

Citing several studies in the United States, Europe and Japan, the chemicals industry maintains that polycarbonate bottles contain little BPA and leach traces considered too low to harm humans.

Critics point to an influx of animal studies linking low doses to a wide variety of diseases – from breast and prostate cancer, obesity and hyperactivity, to miscarriages and other reproductive disorders. "The report notes that phthalates found ineverything from PVC (water pipes) to shampoo also has a link to a full slate of diseases and deformities. A recent CDC study showed that phthalates were in a test group that they studied and propagated, that the level is again considered safe were found, not in deed. According to the CNN report, "studies have shown that BPA in polycarbonate containers made liquors and cans, and the exposure to BPA to cancer, in conjunction impaired, immune function, early puberty, obesity, diabetes and hyperactivity, amongother problems. "

According to an article in the California Chronicle, "More than 150 government-funded studies have shown effects on the health of the animals at extremely low doses of BPA – sometimes 2000-fold lower than (the Environmental Protection Agency EPA) is a safe level.

This flies in the face of conventional wisdom when it comes to establishing a so-called "safe level" of exposure to BPA. According to Environment California report, the contention that can harm only byhigh concentrations of a chemical is outdated thinking. If not revised to take into account the latest findings could cause such thinking in serious harm to the public health. "

The U.S. government seems to be alone on the poisoning effects of plastic stand. Japan and the EU have now banned certain plastic containers, and the San Francisco, Maryland and Canada have joined the anti-plastic movement. It all comes back, who do you trust? There is little doubt that these products from plastic to kill usand poisoning our children. Our government has been silent, as it wants "more testing." All one has to do is talk to each school system and ask them about the behavior problems. We have just become a nation of poor education, or is there something weird happen? Adding to put this issue other environmental stresses on our youth by poor diet, fast foods, high-energy drinks and environmental destruction, and there can be little doubt that we are poisoning our children-legally.

Before the military coup came to power in 1973, Uruguay, it is about the size of the State of Missouri and has won numerous world championships and international medals. For example, have only Hungary and the United Kingdom over Olympia title Uruguay. Like Real Madrid (Spain);Juventus Turin (Italy) and Manchester United (UK) won PeƱarol, one of the best clubs in Latin America, the Club World Cup (1961 and 1966). In addition, the entire Latin American nation's more players than any other nation produces the world.

Several football players, including Jose Nasazzi, Alvaro Gestido and Pedro Petrone, have acquired international fame. Was certainly the most famous quote is: "If we are world champions in football, then we will most of them are world champions ineverything ".

50 years ago, Uruguay-it gained its independence in 1825 – was one of the highest living standards in the world the best education and health care on the South American continent. During this time, it was as "the Switzerland of the Americas". Montevideo, the capital, was one of the most beautiful cities in Latin America.

The democratic government offered favorable conditions for the game of sports.There were several sports camps and clubs forChildren and young people-the visible legacy is the Centenario Stadium. This was the second Republic of Uruguay in Latin America to win an Olympic gold medal in 1924.

The golden age of the Uruguayan Football was during the 1910s and 1950s. At the 1924 Summer Olympics added to the team gold medal of the men, second to Switzerland and Sweden, finishing third. This was the first time when Uruguay won the Olympic Games and won the gold –Medal. Later, in 1928, the Uruguayan team won the Olympic gold medal at the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam (Netherlands). In his first game against Holland, the host country Uruguay posted a 2:0-win. In the second round, they defeated Germany 4-1. Finally, the Uruguayan team of Hector Pedro Scarone defeated team led Argentina 2-1. To the surprise of probably the whole world, Uruguay never again participate in the Olympic Games (Berlin 1936-Beijing 2008).

On the other hand, the Uruguayan "super" team was the first national team in the world, winning the FIFA World Cup in 1930. In the tournament in Montevideo, defeated the locals Romania (4-2), Peru (1-0), Yugoslavia (6-1) and Argentina (4-2).

In 1950, the national team made history when he won theglobal title in Rio de Janeiro. Under the direction of Obdulio Varela, the Uruguayan team team defeated Brazil, the host country. Since Obdulio became a national hero in the South American country. Strangely, he was a ballboy when Uruguay beat Switzerland in the Olympic Games of 1924.

The latest crisis in Uruguay

In the late 1960s, a civil war broke out in Uruguay between Tupamarus, a terrorist group and the government. In 1973, militaryHeads of State and Government took control of the government of Uruguay. In the mid-1970s, the South American country had one of the highest per capita foreign debt in the world. 1968 to 1976 by about 400,000 Uruguayans emigrated to Europe, Canada and the United States.

Unlike Jorge Rafael Videla (Argentina, 1976-1981), Idi Amin Dada (Uganda, 1971-1979), Chiang Kai-shek (Taiwan, 1949-1975) and Juan Velasco Alvarado (Peru, 1968-1975), the dictatorship in Uruguay not support theSport.

Under the dictatorship of Velasco Alvarado, Peru has won many international titles in football, volleyball, water sports, tennis, boxing, wrestling, track and field.

The national team has beenRunner-up qualify for the South American Olympic Qualification Tournament, in Recife (Brazil), and for the Olympic Games in Montreal (Canada). For economic reasons, but they have not at the 1976 Summer Olympics competition in Uruguay has been replaced by Cuba.

In 1979, the athletes did not win any medal at the Pan American Games in San Juan de Puerto Rico. Ironically, the football team, South American champions, could not competitors of the Games. Months later,the military government, an anti-communist dictatorship, is boycotting the Summer Olympics in Moscow.

Since the mid-1980s, sport does not take an important position in the country, it is a democratic country since 1984. The Uruguayan soccer men's team won in the 2002 World Cup, where she placed 26th …
