Objects that are lying about your house freely, objects that you handle every day have been found to contain chemicals that are linked with early menopause. Furniture, pieces of clothing, toys in the nursery or non-stick pans in the kitchen all have chemical compounds that eventually find their way into your body via air, water and plants.
Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) are used in so many household items that they end up in drinks and food and even in the air inside the home, studies discovered. As the PFC-level in human bodies rises, it begins to relate to health issues such as immune system dysfunctions, thyroid cancer and heart diseases.
Chemical manufacturers claim that PFCs-containing products are completely safe, but a new study says there are reasons to refute the statement and start looking for natural substances to use instead of perfluorocarbons.
The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, concludes that high exposure to PFCs that leads to its accumulation in the body is linked with a lower estrogen level. In 26,000 women involved it was discovered to associate with early menopause. In women of 40 and over the level of female sex hormone estradiol goes down which draws the onset of menopause nearer.
