Plastic “Everyday” Chemicals Killing People? [ Phthalates ] | Doctor Mike Hansen

Phthalates Linked to 100,000 Premature US Deaths: Everything You Need to Know About These Toxic Household Chemicals.
A new study found that common household chemicals, known as phthalates, contribute to more than 100,000 deaths a year in adults aged 55 to 64. These premature deaths have known reasons, especially heart disease.

This peer-reviewed study published in the journal ‘Environmental Pollution’ also estimates an approximate $40 – 47 billion lost annually in economic productivity due to these deaths.

What are these phthalate chemicals, aka plasticizers?
Why are they toxic?
How can you minimize your exposure to them?

Here’s everything you need to know about phthalates (also known as plasticizers).
What are the types of phthalates, and where are they found?
In the United States, phthalates are found everywhere. Take a walk in a store, and chances are, you’ll see tons of products with these toxins in them. These include certain children’s toys, clothing, food storage containers, shampoos, lotions, soaps, hair spray, and much more. These chemicals are so common that they are known as ‘everywhere chemicals.’ Globally, we consume more than three million tons of phthalates a year!

Some phthalates have been banned or restricted in children’s toys but are pretty common in food packaging, makeup, and other household items.

There are two high-level categories of phthalates. They are Low-molecular-weight phthalates and high-molecular-weight phthalates:

• Low-molecular-weight phthalates are often found in shampoos, lotions, and personal care products. They act as binding agents and help preserve the fragrance in these products.

• High-molecular weight phthalates are ingredients in manufacturing plastics for flooring, food wrap, and other applications. They help to soften the plastic.

Why are phthalates dangerous?
Why are phthalates dangerous? The new study is the first to link phthalates directly to death. The researchers used a nationally representative sample of 5300 adults aged 20 years or older. The lead author, Leonardo Trasande, MD, MPP, said, “Until now, we have understood that the chemicals connect to heart disease, and heart disease, in turn, is a leading cause of death, but we had not yet tied the chemicals themselves to death.”

Phthalates interfere with hormones in our bodies. The chemicals have been known to lower testosterone levels. Low testosterone means many things, but one of those things is an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. People with a higher concentration of phthalates in their urine had a greater probability of dying from heart disease.

Daily exposure to these chemicals causes a buildup of toxins and can induce oxidative stress. This oxidative stress can lead to various issues like cell and tissue damage, premature aging, and chronic conditions like obesity both in children and adults. Not just obesity, but diabetes, but breast cancer and thyroid cancer. Lab studies have also linked phthalates to endometriosis and even possibly infertility. It’s important to note that this study did NOT find a higher risk of dying from cancer due to a greater concentration of phthalates.

For this study, the researchers analyzed data collected from the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey of 2001-2010. This survey was administered by the National Center for Health Statistics at the CDC. During this survey, participants had provided urine samples to measure phthalate metabolite concentrations.

How do we accumulate phthalates in our bodies?
Phthalates can get into our bodies through our skin when we inhale them, or when we eat them. food is the primary source of phthalate exposure. It can also happen when children crawl around and put their hands in their mouths after touching things with phthalate particles.

How long do phthalates stay in our bodies?
Once phthalates enter our bodies, they’re processed in two phases and then excreted through our urine and feces. Previously, researchers believed that phthalates cleared rapidly from our body through urine, and the chemicals did not accumulate in our bodies. Further research has shown that this is not entirely true.

    I was cured of genital herpes some months ago after I was tested positive. I was recommended to a doctor called dr momoh on youtube channel who helped me cure the virus with some natural herbal remedies . am so happy now. He treats different ailments too..

    Phthalates are mainly used in PVC. Most food packaging are made with other plastics, like PE and PET.
    PVC is phased out from most food packaging around the world except for in the US. PVC also cause problems with dioxins when incinerated. PE cling wrap is a better alternative to PVC, but do not cling as well.

    Basically, anything made from dinosaur juice, black gold, or Texas tea.

    This hurts me a lot… I was diagnosed withh endometriosis in 2012, and it has been hard to live a clean and healthy lifestyle. Now I think it has something to do with my infertility, loss of menstrual cycle, and hormonal imbalance. I definitely have to do better, but I'm afraid to do so. I want to live to be 100 years old. I have to start now.

    Get to almost impossible to avoid. We have to be active to change the guidelines. Thank you

  14. John Pallow

    That Mobile phone your holding contains phthalates. So you can't avoid them, just live with it.

  15. petecabrina

    I found the comment about children and the video edit a little ironic, he says when children crawl around and put things in their mouths, when the baby is actually crawling around on a carpet probably made of plastic. So much of our clothes, linen, curtains can be made out of micro fibres which are essentially plastic.

  16. Some Guy

    He wasn't specifically warning about the BPA coating inside of any can that doesn't rule them out on the label. BPA may not be the only problem, though. The alternative coatings may have detrimental aspects too.

    So this is also leaching into landfills ensuring that it will eventually spread into the ground water for future generations.

  18. Aaron Lewis

    Let’s not forget about all of the different pesticides and chemicals found in fruits and vegetables and even in most of the drinking water supply. Also a new study that fairly recently came out found out that the air we breath may be more polluted than we thought. Phthalates are just the tip of the iceberg as far as I’m concerned.

    If I need to wear a mouth guard while sleeping what is the best material that I need to look for??

  20. burblegobble

    I cannot count the number of times I have suggested phthalates might be dangerous, and seen others suggest this, only to be treated with incredulity. For suggesting this, I've been treated as if I were some kind of conspiracy theory hysteric. Also, can you imagine a modern hospital without phthalate containing plastics? Physicians heal thyselves!

  21. Semi Veg

    This isn't new. I'm a nutritionist and I've been teaching people this for 15 years.

  22. Jordenia

    Couldn’t it be more of a correlation than causation? Like people who eat out a lot and eat more processed food are more likely to have heart disease?

  23. t s

    But it's not covid 19 so it doesn't matter.

    And we are woven with the stuff.

  32. Devina St Claire

    I heard that micro-plastics shrink penises in lab rats and it does it to human penises too.

  33. Walt of All Trades

    Can someone please enlighten me as to why there's a 'COVID-19 vaccine' banner under this video when it has NOTHING to do with it at all???


    Let's not forget the clothing we wear most made of of plastic materials that do get absorbed through the skin.

  35. Karine Savard

    Great info!! 👍👍😘

  36. Kathy M.

    When products say they are BPA-free, safe for microwaving and cooking at high temperatures should I still be concerned? My daughter cooks a lot using the sous vide method which uses vacuum-sealed plastic bags cooked at high temperatures for hours!

    Meanwhile I'm paranoid over covid

    Phthalates are so hard to avoid. I changed my lifestyle due to unexplained infertility. It took us 9 years to concieve. I made multiple changes including reducing phthalate use, which was difficult. A few months later and with multiple IVF attempts, we finally concieve our first. I am convinced that phthalates played a big role in our infertility issues.

    When will we ever learn…….

    Hey why don't you guys let us know who these polluters are so we can avoid them. Thank you for your work

  43. Eli Letts

    Wow! Very informative! I didn't know that microplastics were so common in our environment! 😮

  44. LodeLeaf

    Very interesting and informative! I'm sure phthalates are not the only harmful leeching chemicals in plastic products, cosmetics, cleaning agents, and other commercial everyday items… for a couple of years now my take has been: go natural, go organic (grow any food you can), filter your own water, and go plastic-free as much as possible (zero-waste movement ftw). I think in natural products, scents through essential oils are fine though??? Especially organic oils?
