Endocrine Disruptors Can Contribute To Depression

Hormonal issues can contribute to depression. Endocrine disruptors mimic hormones so that your actual hormones may not do their actual job.

Especially think of teenage girls… 
Rubbing body wash and body lotion all of over their skin (their largest organ). Many of those contain phthalates and parabens (endocrine disruptors). 

Then they use face wash, face lotion, deodorant, make up, perfume that all have endocrine disruptors too. 

Then monthly they also use feminine products with more endocrine disruptors.

And somehow we think teenagers are going to have balanced hormones?

Teenagers hormones can be all over the place during puberty. Last thing they need are products that mimc their hormones.

This can contribute to depression, anxiety, horrible pms, mood swings, heavy bleeding, infertility, migraines, chronic fatigue, and more.

“The brain is highly vulnerable to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), which can cause widespread disruption of hormone receptors, enzymes, and nerve signals. The renewal, maintenance, and death of neurons are also highly hormone-sensitive.

The World Health Organization, the United Nations and the US National Toxicology Program are just a few of the leading agencies concluding that EDCs may cause a variety of neuroendocrine dysfunction that negatively effects the brain and behavior. EDC exposures have been linked to decreased IQ, increased neurodevelopmental problems, and other neurocognitive conditions.” (1)
