Chemicals and other substances that pollute the environment can also cause serious health problems in human reproductive health. There is increasing evidence that some toxic substances harm the body by disrupting the endocrine (hormone) system which regulates biological processes from conception to old age.    Because a woman goes through several hormonally-influenced changes in her body across the lifespan (in-utero, puberty, pregnancy, menopause)  she is at greater risk of experiencing reproductive problems including impaired fertility, miscarriage, preeclampsia, preterm delivery, menstrual irregularities, polycystic ovarian syndrome, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, breast cancer and early menopause.  To learn more about this topic, download the free April e-newsletter called, Women and the Environment,  created by the Institute for Women's Health Research.

That was honestly one of the best articles I've read on the connection between toxic chemicals in the environment and the effect they have on hormones. Thank you!

The earth is an island that we can't get off. There is nowhere to go anywhere else. And if we keep destroying the earth, come to think of it, our actions will only rebound back to us. Poor next generation.

Very good article on the environment and the possible connection to infertility, miscarriage and greater experience in reproductive issues.

I found this site by google, respect for good google position and nice articles.

Wow. I had no idea. This can't be good for the poor women in northern Japan. Their systems are being exposed to all kinds of environmental pollutants. I'm going to check out your newsletter. Thanks.

Toxic pollutants are a concern in first world countries but especially third world countries where the lack of standards can become a dangerous situation.

Going Natural is the Best way to go! I was hurt with the chemical stuff in food. Thank you for posting this interesting post.

Ovarian cysts are one amongst the reproduction-related health problems that females keep worrying about. There are numerous kinds of ovarian growths. Understanding how to categorize a cyst might help alleviate the mind in regards to the connected threat components.
