The Environmental Working Group has published an excellent article detailing the 12 most common chemicals in our environment that cause hormone disruption leading to everything from cancer to infertility to shrunken testicles…and actions you can take today to help protect yourself and your family from harm.
The first step is to remove the source of the chemicals if you can. Read here to learn more.
The second step is to support the body’s natural detoxification processes daily, and seasonally, through medically supervised detoxification programs that are customized to your specific situation, your lab test results and your metabolism.
No one can afford to ignore this issue. Chemicals in our environment can cause irreversible harm to our health, if we allow it.

A new study reveals that prolonged exposure to pesticides, bug and weed killers, and solvents raise the risk for developing Parkinson’s disease.
Italian investigators who reviewed more than 100 prior studies found exposure to such agents boosted Parkinson’s disease risk by anywhere from 33 percent to 80 percent, they reported in the May 28 issue of the journal Neurology.
“Due to this association, there was also a link between farming or country living and developing Parkinson’s in some of the studies,” study leader Dr. Emanuele Cereda, of the IRCCS University Hospital San Matteo Foundation in Pavia, said in a journal news release.
Some studies specifically explored how home or work environment affected disease risk. Where individuals got their water also was the subject of some investigations.
Environmental toxins absolutely contribute to this disease and there are ways to test the blood and urine which we regularly do for our patients at HealthBridge to identify possible exposure and associated damage to neural tissue years before a disease like this has the opportunity to manifest. We implement customized purification programs to assist in lowering the toxic burden and risk of disease.
