Arrow 91% of Canadians Found to Be Toxic !?


Gender-Bending Chemical Detected in 91 Percent of Canadians

The industrial chemical Bisphenol A, which has been linked to developmental and reproductive problems and mimics estrogen, is present in roughly 91 percent of the Canadian population, particularly in teens aged 12 to 19.

The urine of 91 percent of those in the study contained detectable levels of BPA, the chemical used in polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins used in the lining of canned foods, as well as in hard plastic bottles and food containers.

BPA has found itself in the spotlight in recent years, with some states and cities banning its use in baby bottles and childrens' products. According to Statistics Canada, higher concentrations of BPA were detected in the urine of children aged 6 to 100, compared to adults aged 40 to 79. Teens aged 12 to 19 showed the highest concentration of BPA.

Mercury was detected in the blood samples of 88 percent of Canadians, present in higher concentrations in adults aged 20 to 79. The primary transfer of mercury from the environment to the human population is through the consumption of seafood.

Mercury can also cause developmental problems for fetuses and children, which has prompted governments to warn pregnant women and those whoe may become pregnant, about the consumption of fish and shellfish.
