So many of you have left comments or sent me personal emails asking if I would share some of the information I have found concerning foods and other products that we use in our homes that have estrogens or estrogen producing elements in them. There are tons of websites out there. I'm not a stupid person, but I must tell you, a lot of it is so technical and so full of 27-letter long words that I just didn't know what I was reading. Some went overboard, making me think that all I would ever be able to eat was organically grown grass, that I could never use soap or shampoo again, or even wear clothing!!!!
It does seem scarey, to say the least, if you are trying to STOP hormone production in your body, that so much of what you eat and use every day keeps pouring it IN!
It also makes you wonder about all these drugs and medications that are being given out that are full of hormones. I know there are tons of women who have no breast cancer issues, etc., and seem to need these. But it makes me think a little more carefully about what will happen years down the road with all of this. I was never on hormone therapy, nor did I take any over-the-counter stuff to ease post-menopausal symptoms. But here I am now, taking hormone BLOCKERS!
Here is one site that seems to speak a little more down to earth about products, foods, soaps, shampoos, plastics, chemicals, and herbs, etc., that are estrogenic.
As I find more information, I will pass it on to those of you who are interested.
This whole website is VERY interesting!!!!
Well, I've tried a thousand times to make that link work to take you directly to the right page on that site, but it won't! So here it is for you to copy and paste:
