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.

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.”
