Tuesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:


Hour 1

Nearly 1,000 Popular Consumer Products Contain Carcinogenic Estrogens: A study highlights the presence of 279 estrogenic compounds in consumer products that can induce mammary tumors in animals,alongside another 642 chemicals potentially elevating breast cancer risk by affecting estrogen or progesterone signaling. The narrative underscores the health dangers of estrogen dominance, associated with obesity and specific cancers, challenging the notion that high estrogen levels are desirable. Historical insights reveal the once-known weight gain association with estrogen has been overshadowed by the introduction of synthetic estrogens, leading to severe health ramifications. This shift emphasizes the carcinogenic nature of estrogen, validated by numerous studies, including the detrimental health effects observed in the Women’s Health Initiative studies. Amidst growing concern over the ubiquity of these compounds in everyday items, strategies for reducing exposure and mitigating risks are discussed.

EPA Allows Highly Toxic Weedkiller on Food Crops — But Not Golf Courses: The Environmental Working Group’s analysis reveals the disproportionate use of the highly toxic herbicide paraquat in California’s central counties, predominantly affecting Latino communities engaged in agriculture. Despite its lethal nature and association with serious health issues like non-Hodgkin lymphoma and Parkinson’s disease, the EPA permits its application on crops such as almonds, walnuts, and alfalfa. The decision underscores a regulatory disconnect that exempts golf courses from paraquat usage due to health risks while sanctioning its agricultural application, placing farmworkers and nearby residents at elevated risk. This contradiction has sparked calls for a reevaluation of paraquat’s approval, advocating for a ban to protect public health and environment.

US appeals court kills ban on plastic containers contaminated with PFAS: The US appeals court overturned an EPA ban on plastic containers produced byInhance Technologies, which are contaminated with toxic PFAS compounds. Despite acknowledging the health risks associated with PFAS, the court ruled the EPA could not regulate the containers under the statute used, citing the company’s long-standing manufacturing process. The decision highlights the legal and regulatory challenges in addressing the pervasive issue of PFAS contamination, which poses significant health risks, including cancer and liver disease. Critics argue for stronger regulatory measures to protect public health, especially in communities disproportionately affected by PFAS exposure.

Common livestock feed additive poses risks to human health, lawsuit says: A lawsuit has been filed against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by major food safety, environmental, and animal rights organizations, demanding a reevaluation of the approval for ractopamine. This drug, used to promote muscle growth in livestock, has been banned or restricted in over 160 countries due to health concerns. Despite being utilized in up to 80% of U.S. pigs, along with turkeys and cows, ractopamine has been linked to adverse human health effects, such as heart rate increases, nausea, dizziness, respiratory issues, and heart problems, when ingested or inhaled. The drug also reportedly causes distress and behavioral changes in animals. The groups assert that the FDA has neglected its duty to respond to petitions filed in 2012 and 2020 that call for the ban or severe restriction of ractopamine usage. This legal action seeks to compel the FDA to address these petitions, potentially leading to stricter regulations or an outright ban on the drug, which was first approved for use in the U.S. in 1999 but was banned by the European Union in 2009.

How Worried Should We Be About Artificial Food Dye? Here’s What Science Has (And Hasn’t) Confirmed.: Amid rising health concerns, California proposes banning foods with artificial dyes from schools,sparking debate over the safety of color additives in the food industry. While the FDA maintains that artificial food dyes are safe, requiring rigorous testing and regulation, studies have linked them to health issues like hyperactivity in children and cancer, albeit with mixed results and inconclusive evidence. The EU and UK have stricter labeling requirements due to potential adverse effects on children’s behavior. Experts emphasize the need for updated research on dye sensitivity and health risks, particularly in processed foods rich in artificial colors, suggesting that while risks may exist for specific groups, the overall danger to the general population is low when consumed as part of a balanced diet.


Hour 2

Archaeologists are now finding microplastics in ancient remains: A groundbreaking study has discovered microplastics in historic soil samples, revealing their presence in layers more than seven meters deep, dating back to the first or second century CE. This finding, led by researchers from the University of York, UK, has identified 16 different types of microplastic polymers in both contemporary and archived samples. Microplastics, tiny plastic fragments no larger than five millimeters, have raised concerns about environmental and health impacts, but their detection in ancient deposits signals a potential paradigm shift in archaeology. The contamination could alter the chemical composition of soil, threatening the preservation of organic remains and challenging the practice of conserving archaeological sites in their natural settings. This discovery prompts a reevaluation of how historical heritage and its scientific value are understood in the face of pervasive plastic pollution.

What Is ‘Patientsplaining’? Nearly 70% Do This To Their Doctor Every Visit: The term “patientsplaining” refers to the phenomenon where nearly 70% ofAmericans explain their online health findings to their doctors during visits, according to a survey conducted by OnePoll for Vimergy. This survey, which explored the health research habits of 2,000 Americans, found that a significant majority engage in health-related research and are keen to discuss these findings with their healthcare providers. Despite valuing their doctor’s advice, many patients fear the guidance isn’t tailored enough to their specific needs. The study reveals a growing desire among patients to play an active role in their healthcare by informing doctors of their bodily changes and asking questions to gain a better understanding of their health. With an emphasis on personalized care, the survey highlights the importance of advocating for one’s health based on individual needs, encouraging a proactive approach to health management and communication with healthcare professionals.

How Gen Z Is Becoming the Toolbelt Generation: Amidst a labor shortage in skilled trades, Gen Z is increasingly drawn to careers like plumbing, welding, and machine tooling, motivated by rising wages and advanced technologies. The skepticism surrounding the value of a college education, coupled with the high costs, is pushing more young Americans towards vocational training programs. Enrollment in these programs is on the rise, with a notable surge in students pursuing construction trades and vehicle maintenance. The trend reflects a broader appreciation for the hands-on, tangible results that skilled trades offer, as well as the attractive income potential, sometimes reaching six figures within five years of experience. Despite the physical demands and the challenge of securing positions without prior experience, the industry’s transformation and the entrepreneurial opportunities it presents appeal to Gen Z, who are keen on building sustainable, debt-free careers.

Dear Robert,
This is a followup on my grandson that has had the jaundice, we have been giving him the homeopathic medicine that you suggested and within a couple of days I noticed that his color looked better. Unfortunately the doctors have gotten the tests back from the genetic testing and they have found that he has a very rare genetic disorder (PFIC Type 2) They have said that he will probably need a liver transplant, and they are monitoring him on a regular basis. They would also like to bring him up to date on his vaccinations (he has none, and we would like to keep it that way!) Dr. also put him on ursodiol for helping bile acids move out of the liver. My grandson’s skin is still somewhat yellow, he is not gaining much weight and sometimes he loses weight. At 4.5 months he is barely 11 lbs. He is also itchy, they say that is a sign. We are desperate to find someone to treat him naturally.
I have to believe there is another way.
What else can we do?
Thank you in advance
Tanja

If you have any suggestions of drs. in CT or new england would love a referral
I think there is a bit of a fear with the system also
