Phthalates isn’t a fancy new form of Pilates. It’s something much worse.
Phthalates are a synthetic group of chemicals that are found in stuff we use every day, like shampoo, soap, makeup, plastic packaging, and all of the things.
A new study shows that exposure to phthalates could make you die early. They might be the cause of around 91,000-107,000 premature deaths of older people in the U.S. Especially deaths from heart problems, the #1 killer in America.
The study didn’t find a direct cause-and-effect connection between phthalates and premature death, but researchers sounded the warning bell in the study conclusion: “While further studies are needed to corroborate observations and identify mechanisms, regulatory action is urgently needed.”
