The Embryo or Foetus is perhaps the most vulnerable member of humanity – yet finds itself in a constant battle with everyday products that its mother and father pour into their bodies, use around the house, and generally encounter wherever they go.
What all future parents need to know:
Many everyday products that have been developed over the past century and have added tremendous comfort and convenience to our lifestyles contain man-made chemicals that have yet to be fully tested. They’re everywhere, and while their effects are causing concern in many informed circles – only time will reveal what future generations might suffer. This topic is covered more fully in the first paper on Hormonal Disrupters – and this article is an extension to look at the disruptive effect on the unborn child.
What we do know is that very low doses of these Hormonal Disrupters can alter the ‘normal’ hormone signals – not only within the expectant mother, but also in the body of her developing embryo/foetus. Hormones are the body’s messengers – telling our various systems when to start and stop – and controlling their levels of activity.
