Numerous studies prove various types of past coronavirus's were effectively inactivated by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), food-grade ethyl alcohol (ethanol) and ultraviolet light. They are safe *options to choose if you are looking for natural ways to sanitize and keep your family healthy and xenoestrogen-free!
UV-C light (185 nm - 400 nm) is the high-energy portion of the UV spectrum which studies have proven effectively destroy the DNA of bacteria, viruses and fungi including various types of the coronavirus. Hydrogen peroxide, in simplistic terms, is water with an extra molecule of oxygen added. Its represented by the formula H2O2 (two molecules of hydrogen attached to two molecules of oxygen). Ethyl alcohol, also known as ethanol is the only type of alcohol that's edible, vodka being an excellent example of this type of alcohol.
Other studies have shown various types of coronavirus can be effectively inactivated by 0.1% sodium hypochlorite. Most people know **sodium hypochlorite by its common name, bleach. Sodium hypochlorite in its purest form is a solid white powder, which to create household bleach is dissolved in water. Generally the only other additives to make bleach are calcium hypochlorite (the calcium version of sodium hypochlorite) and sodium hydroxide (a very alkaline substance that is created by electrolysis [passing an electric current through] of liquid solutions of sodium chloride (table salt). Diluted correctly, bleach does not have hormone disrupting effects. However, if there is a fragrant scent to bleach, it is because perfume was added. The chemicals used to create fragrances do have hormone disrupting effects and should be avoided. When buying bleach, choose fragrance-free formulations, your body will thank you that you did.
*It is important to note that each of these disinfectant measures should be used separate and apart from each other as mixing of chemicals can cause dangerous reactions.
**Organochlorines are hormone disruptors and are different than sodium hypochlorite, calcium hypochlorite and sodium hydroxide.
A recent study reveals raw pumpkin seed oil is an effective therapeutic agent that alleviates the adverse effects caused by exposure to the endocrine disrupting chemical bisphenol A (BPA). Anti-oxidants, fatty acids, zinc and vitamin E were the main bioactive compounds found in pumpkin seeds that acted against the genotoxic, hepatotoxic, mutagenic, reproductive and carcinogenic effects of the xenoestrogen, BPA.
Exposure to xenoestrogens called phthalates, often found in cologne, can cause male infertility due to aspermia (failure to produce sperm). Researchers recently discovered phytoestrogens in celery oil (Apium graveolens) can protect the male testis against phthalate induced aspermia. Celery has also been found to improve spermatogenesis (sperm production). There is hope against the chemical castration of our male population by hormone disrupting chemicals.
Bisphenol A (BPA) a known xenoestrogen and hormone disruptor was degradated by bacterial strains isolated from kimchi, a traditionally fermented food, as reported in a 2007 research paper.
Research reports green tea contain compounds called catechins that exibit anti-estrogenic activity caused by exposure to the xenoestrogen bisphenol A (BPA).
The data from a 2014 study indicates green tea is potentially an effective treatment for oxidative stress, caused by bisphenol A (BPA), of human red blood cells (erythrocytes).
A 2017 study found vitamin A (retinoids) plays a large role in the detoxification of the xenoestrogen bisphenol A (BPA) through the liver's (hepatic) detox pathways, in particular the enzymes involved require hepatic retinoid stores.
