Chemical compounds that can be found in beauty products for women, as well as in plastic packages that are often used to store and transport food, can cause premature menopause. So experts from the University of Washington believe.
If you care about your health, you should limit yourself in using hair lacquers, plastic container for dishes and some types of cosmetics. These things contain substances that cause the earlier onset of menopause. It is proved that for women who often use such products, menopause will come about two to three years earlier than others who do not use such goods. Women who abuse the use of cosmetics and often drink or eat food from plastic dishes, menopause can begin and 15 years before their natural term. Phthalates are to blame for everything.
Phthalates are chemicals that are widely used in the industry for the manufacture of plastics and cosmetics in order to give elasticity and softness to products. They can be found almost everywhere. Most often they are used for the production of medical products, toys, all kinds of packages, carpets, car upholstery, detergents and cosmetics.
Scientists believe that phthalates have a cumulative effect. Their presence adversely affects the human hormonal background. Also, these substances have a negative effect on the work of the liver and kidneys.
Scientists have long been talking about the dangers of phthalates for the human body. Even in the results of studies from 2005 in the USA, it was noted that phthalates, which were contained in the blood of pregnant mothers of boys, duplicated female sex hormones, which led the boys to underdevelop the penis and do not testicles into the scrotum. New research has confirmed their deleterious effects on the reproductive system of women.
Natalia Grindler( Natalia Grindler) and her colleagues took a blood test from 5,700 women who used cosmetics and consumed food and water from plastic utensils. As a result, it was found that the highest level of phthalates in the blood was associated with the onset of menopause in women, on average three years earlier, ie, menopause came at 49 years instead of 51. Early menopause may still lead to an increased risk of stroke and heart disease.
