Receipts covered in hormone-like chemical from www.healthiernews.com

 

Here's a reality check for those of you who think you can avoid the toxic chemical bisphenol A: It turns out this toxic chemical has even been found in cash register receipts. That's right: It's not just cans and plastic bottles, friends -- this poison is literally everywhere.

 

Researchers from the Environmental Working Group found this dangerous estrogen-like substance in 40 percent of receipts from places like Safeway, Wal-Mart, McDonald's, CVS, and KFC.

 

Even the Whole Foods had BPA in its receipts. You just can't trust anyone these days!

 

But if you think handling receipts with BPA is no big deal, think again. Swiss scientists say that two hours after exposure, 30 percent of the BPA from a receipt remained on the skin -- and could no longer be washed away.

Nothing like a hormone boost with each purchase -- and they don't even charge extra for it.


That's what the feds will do with it, because they don't care about you or me. The dangers of BPA are well known and well documented -- it's been linked to everything from obesity and cardiovascular problems to reproductive harm and early puberty -- and they're deliberately ignoring all that evidence every single day they fail to act.

 

But don't let me bust your bubble. If you enjoy a good exercise in futility, you can send your thoughts to consumer@fda.gov.


If you want to do something more productive with your time, get rid of everything that might contain BPA: Cans, bottles, jars with lids -- if it doesn't say "BPA free," assume it's BPA full.

 

There's not much you can do about those receipts. I'd say leave them right there at the cash register, but in some places they'll tackle you at the door if you don't show a receipt on the way out. You might also need those receipts for warranties, returns and the taxman.

 

Shopping has officially become a dangerous activity -- bring disposable gloves.

Multiple approaches to fighting rheumatoid arthritis

- Jonathan Wright,MD

 

Q: I've been trying to research treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, but am just getting overwhelmed. Can you help steer me in the right direction?

 

Dr. Wright: I've observed improvement in every case of rheumatoid arthritis with elimination and desensitization of food allergy. Milk and dairy are almost always major allergens in people with this form of arthritis and have even been the subject of mainstream medical research into RA (which showed that eliminating milk and dairy worked to alleviate symptoms). But even though dairy is usually a primary culprit, there are always multiple allergens aggravating rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Find and work with a doctor skilled and knowledgeable in food allergy as well as nutritional medicine; a good place to start is with a member of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM). To find one near you visit www.aaemonline.org.

 

But while food allergy elimination and desensitization improve rheumatoid arthritis, sometimes dramatically and always noticeably, it doesn't cure the problem.

 

Over the years, multiple studies have also reported a high incidence of stomach malfunction (specifically, low levels of hydrochloric acid and pepsin) in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis. These reports also revealed that just replacing the "missing" hydrochloric acid and pepsin -- without making any other changes -- can significantly improve many cases of rheumatoid arthritis.

 

So with this in mind, I always ask individuals suffering from rheumatoid arthritis to have a gastric analysis done. In the majority of instances, the test discloses low stomach function (low acid).

 

If this is the case for you, consider supplementing with either betaine hydrochloride-pepsin or glutamic-acid hydrochloride-pepsin before meals.

I usually recommend starting out by taking one capsule (5, 7 1/2, or 10 grains). After two or three days, if there are no problems, use two capsules in the early part of the meal; then, several days later, increase the amount to three capsules. The dose is gradually increased in this steplike fashion until it equals 40 to 70 grains per meal.

 

You'll probably need to work with a doctor on this aspect of rheumatoid arthritis, too. On rare occasion treatment with hydrochloric acid can be dangerous, so it should only be used when testing indicates a need. Though problems occur rarely, they can be bad ones.

 

Hydrochloric acid should never be used at the same time as aspirin, Butazolidin, Inodicin, Motrin, or any other anti-inflammatory medication. These medications themselves can cause stomach bleeding and ulcers, so using hydrochloric acid with them increases the risk.

 

And last but not least, many research studies have shown that the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish oil significantly reduce the inflammation and pain of rheumatoid arthritis. Generally, I recommend taking 1 tablespoonful of cod liver oil with 400 I.U. of vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) twice daily.
