Avoid Toxins and Pollutants in Your Environment

Toxins and Pollutants are one of the major contributing factors of infertility.

Fertility problems can occur due to exposure to environmental chemicals and various types of radiation. By taking control over your environment, by trying to avoid toxins, you can take back control of your health and fertility.

According to studies cited in Environmental Health Perspectives pesticides, plastics and certain every day substances contain toxins that increase the risk of infertility and even cancer. And women exposed to certain heavy metals are more likely to suffer from period irregularities, miscarriages and experience problems with their fertility.

The harsh reality is there are occupational and environmental toxins – in your everyday life – secretly harming your fertility. And there are new kinds of pollution affecting you even more deeply than you are currently aware of every day.

According to a study published in Frontiers in Bioscience, governments claim many of these chemicals are not as harmful as we may  think.  However,  more  and  more  studies  are  uncovering  a startling reality. For example:

  • A chemical found in perfumes and hair sprays is a potential reproductive toxin (Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry)
  • A chemical in nail polish can seriously affect the health of your baby.   (Archives   of   Paediatrics   and   Adolescent Medicine)
  • A metal commonly found in deodorants and dried milk can compromise fertility, and can even cause long term damage to your mental health. (Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health)
  • A toxic metal found in dental fillings can build up in your ovaries and lead to recurrent miscarriages, developmental complications in   children,   and   even   premature   death. (Toxicological Science)
  • Certain  garden    chemicals    interrupt    fertility    and negatively impact sperm count. (Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment and Health and the Journal Medicine Association of ThailandWarning_toxic chemicals are a hazard to your fertility
  • Two common chemicals found in leather upholstery, carpets, soap, toothpaste, and even baby bottles have been linked to high infertility rates. (American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology)
  • Women  with  a  history  of  miscarriage  may  have  up  to 300% more of a chemical used in perfumes and cosmetics in   their   bloodstream   than  women   who   have   never miscarried. (Human Reproduction Journal)


Of course, we all know gardening is a pleasant way to pass the time and get some much needed exercise, so I encourage my clients to enjoy their time in the garden. But I also advise them to avoid certain chemicals and use specific protection to prevent fertility complications.
