Yet another article about toxins and human fertility…this time from none other than Erin Brokovich.
Her article, Plummeting Sperm Counts, Shrinking Penises: Toxic Chemicals Threaten Humanity, sheds light on the hormone-disrupting chemicals that are decimating fertility at an alarming rate around the globe.
I know that PFAS (“forever chemicals”) are like an abusive boyfriend saying, “I will never leave you.” But, like the abusive boyfriend, PFAS (and other toxins) are literally destroying you from the inside out. This is not hyperbole, this is just facts and science.
Watch the movie, “Dark Waters.” As a psychiatrist, here’s what I thought as the movie unfolded:
“If docile cows can turn homicidal and violent, imagine what it does to our brains and emotions! How much of what we call mental illness, especially bipolar and violent behavior, is really the downstream effect of such toxins?”
See what insights you can draw from the interplay between the movie and your personal experience.
It’s important to recognize that these harmful and ubiquitous chemicals affect every aspect of our physiology from fertility to mental health to immune health to metabolism to hormonal health and on and on.
What can we do?
I highly recommend Panchakarma for all young people thinking of having babies, so we can birth a new generation that is less toxic than the current one.
We can all do this!
