Common chemicals hurt our health — and cost us money

When it comes to the aspect of common chemicals themselves many of them hurt our health and even cost us money also. In more detail to this particular aspect itself when it comes to contact with plastic and endocrine disrupting chemicals routine contact with these things alone can lead to ingestion which can then lead to a toxic buildup itself.

Key Takeaways:

  • Routine contact with plastic bottles, toys, food cans, cosmetics and flame retardants containing “endocrine-disrupting chemicals” results in ingestion
  • Routine exposure to these chemicals adds up to annual costs in excess of $340 billion — a whopping price tag that comes in the form of poor health
  • The largest single cost comes from chemical effects on children’s developing brains, said Dr. Leonardo Trasande, an associate professor at NYU Langone and lead investigator of the study.
