Life on the planet is in danger! Sunscreens are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) or TiO2 or ZnO nanoparticles. Current research shows these are toxic to all life. Sunscreens are now found in: the earth’s precious lakes, rivers, and oceans. Fish, birds, aquatic and marine life, 97% of American’s blood and mother’s milk: exposing babies during crucial early development.
Coral die in 96 hours. Plankton die, jeopardizing our vital-to-life source of food and oxygen. Fish become intersexed, and some even stop spawning.
EDC’s are linked to the Fetal Basis of Adult Disease: life-long obesity, type 1 diabetes, asthma and ADHD. TiO2 nanoparticles cross cell membranes: disrupt cell division and create fetal DNA deletions.
Vitamin D deficiency is epidemic: use of sunscreen prevents its formation. Autism increases, and parallel increases in sunscreens add to the disruption of neurodevelopment.
