Xenoestrogens are compounds that mimic estorgen in ourbody, causing health complications witht eh repordctive system as well as causing cancer in people who are middle aged. During the midle aged years, we may struggle with balancing our hormones in order to control our weight or lead more healthier lives, but getting away from xenoestrogens is difficult because it has been determined that they are found in plastics and even in our tap water. And when intoduced to our systems, oestrogen dominance occurs, which in utrn, causes the body to direct the ovaries to produce additional oestroge. This, as a reaction in the body, causes increase insuline levels- and all of this leads to excess body fat accumulation and the near impossibility of losing weight. The solution that would minimize your exposure to this coumpond is to avoid using plastic-especially if it has been heated up, whether it be by microwave, stove or even the rays from the sun. As a replacement, use stainless steel bottles. Also, avoid using plastics in the microwave or dishwasher where they can be heated up. Avoid drinking tap water, and instead, drink filtered water.
- Things such as water bottles, till receipts, and other every day products could be causing women to be exposed to a chemical that mimics oestrogen causing women to experience heath problems.
- Too much exposure to oestrogen can cause a woman to develop cancer or other hormonal issues that the woman would not experience.
- Women can help prevent themselves from over dosing on oestrogen by changing some products they use for make up or their menstral cycle and by changing from tap water to filtered water.
