Intersex Conditions Caused by Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals
Gender dysphoria and intersex conditions are on the rise due to fetal exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) while in the womb. A 2016 study says an urgent need exists for hormone disruptors like bisphenol A, phthalates, dioxins, furans, organochlorine pesticides, poly-chlorinated biphenyls, to be regulated.
Science Reveals Gender is Not Just About XX & XY Chromosomes
Science has shown that approximately 1 in 20,000 men have no Y chromosome but instead have two X chromosomes and women can have XY chromosomes instead of the traditional XX, which means human sex determination is not just a product of the chromosomes X and Y, but rather a product of our total genetic makeup in both the brain and behavior.
Phthalates & Bisphenol A Linked to Gender Dysphoria & Intersex Conditions
Studies reveal an increasing number of children are born intersex or experience gender dysphoria later in life due to prenatal xenoestrogen exposure to phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), perfluorochemicals (PFCs) and various other endocrine disrupting chemicals.
BPA & BPS Alter Fetal Sex Specific Regions in The Developing Brain
A 2019 Study describes how xenoestrogens, bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol S (BPS), can alter a developing fetus's sex specific regions in the brain, as well as changes in reproductive organs, both of which can lead to reproductive health concerns in adulthood.
Bisphenol A Exposure Linked to Sexually Dimorphic Disorders
A recent study discovered exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) caused sexual dimorphism and estrogenization which may explain the increased incidence of various metabolic disorders.
Bisphenol A Exposure Linked to Development of Intersex Infants
An increasing number of children in our modern world are born intersex (ambiguous genitalia/hermaphrodite, pseudohermaphroditism, etc.) which studies are linking to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) exposure, like bisphenol A, phthalates and dioxins.
