- BPA, “BPA-Free!” and many other endocrine-disrupting chemicals
- Effect on males and females. Development, puberty, sterility, breast cancer, miscarriages.

- Positive: fermented foods, Vitamin D3, chlorella (algae), cilantro, iodine-rich foods such as cod, wild fish vs. farmed fish, probiotics, folic acid, reverse osmosis for water (I’d consider distillation), natural cleaners like vinegar, organic cotton, etc., saturated animal fats and paleo-type diets vs. unhealthy fats and carbs
On the subject of soy, Curtis Duncan mentions this book:
Honestly, I found the interview overwhelming. My response would be to just minimize exposure to these chemicals whenever possible (depends on information and affordability) and to use the vitamin D3 (especially) and detox supplements when I can afford them. We just need to be practical about it. We should do our best to survive in this world, but we’re not meant to live forever. I take the information seriously, but I’m not going to go broke or hungry worrying about food and cleaners. We have to prioritize.
As far as oil and petroleum by-products, if people can make something good out of it, great! The point is, as much as possible, we need to stop following orders and to stop going along with the same old destructive clique.
Many people won’t believe information like this, because we tend to ascribe good motives to those in places of private and public power. But I’ve tried to present some of the background at my website about the attitudes of people who built our modern world: Charles Galton Darwin, Aldous Huxley, George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells, and others, and also about the population policies of corporate foundations and international organizations such as the United Nations.
. . . already widespread concern about the possibility of biological and chemical tampering with what has until now been considered the immutable essence of man. Human conduct, some argue, can be predetermined and subjected to deliberate control. Man is increasingly acquiring the capacity to determine the sex of his children, to affect through drugs the extent of their intelligence, and to modify and control their personalities. Speaking of a future at most only decades away, an experimenter in intelligence control asserted, “I foresee the time when we shall have the means and therefore, inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behavior and intellectual functioning of all the people through environmental and biochemical manipulation of the brain.
