Bisphenol A (BPA) disrupts the production, secretion, transport, function and elimination of our body’s hormones.   This hormone disruption has many unhealthy effects for females and males, young and old.   Fetuses and infants are also susceptible to the disruptions of BPA estrogen mimickers.

BPA exposure mimics estrogen and as such disrupts sexual function.   In women it is known to disrupt egg production and fertility as well as cancer in female sexual organs, especially the breast.

In males BPA ultimately causes prostate growth (seen with increasing BPA levels), sexual disruption (impotence or erectile dysfunction) and overall feminizing effects in men.

BPA sources are ubiquitous and include:

  • Toilet Paper
  • Plastics
  • Paper receipts
  • Magazines and Newspapers
  • Paper money
  • Many types of envelopes
  • Business Cards
  • Packaged food
  • Food Wrappers
  • Water Bottles
  • Some types of Dental Fillings
  • Some soaps and more

Over 80% of all paper products contain hormone disrupting BPA due to recycling of paper.

Because BPA mimics estrogen it stimulates the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT).   The resultant Testosterone (DHT) is stronger than naturally produced testosterone and is the result of testosterone conversion by the body (natural testosterone to DHT) to balance the increased accumulation of the “fake” estrogen resulting from BPA exposure.

Increasing DHT and “fake” estrogen results in prostate swelling, baldness, decreased libido and overall feminizing of males in all mammals.

One alarming source of BPA is toilet paper.   When used around the genitalia and anus the result is increasing estrogen around the prostate, testicles and around female genitalia.

These tissues are where high estrogen levels create terrible problems- swollen prostates, female cancer, erectile dysfunction and more.

Treatment to Reduce Estrogen Accumulation

Treatment for the exposure to BPA in paper and plastic products should first be to minimize the exposure to plastics (use glass where possible) and paper products when recycled paper is used.

In the case of Toilet Paper use cloth (eg washcloths) whenever possible.  Lowered toilet paper use has been shown to lower the presence of “fake” estrogen and resulting by products.

Studies have shown that the more natural your diet the lower the levels of BPA exist in the blood and tissues near the BPA exposure.

An incredible nutrient called di-indolylmethane (DIM) is the answer for dangerous exposure to BPA.   DIM has been shown to do the following:

  • Converts estrogen to good, healthy estrogen by products which are good for prostates and genital tissues in males and females
  • Decreases prostate estrogen receptors
  • Decreases inflammation and oxidative stress
  • Reduces prostate receptors binding to DHT
  • Reduces weight and Strengthens immune system response

Be aware of the sources of BPA and minimize your exposure to them.    Eating more raw vegetables and other natural foods will also assist in lowering  BPA levels in the body.

Finally use the supplement DIM for healthy tissues in males and females,  to balance hormone levels and for weight loss.    Re-growing hair is also a wonderful benefit to use DIM.    The biologic effects of DIM is to help regenerate hair follicles.

The threat of BPA exposure should be taken seriously.   Avoiding its health disruptions is one of the concerns we face from our lifestyles and environment.

The list of BPA sources is critical to reemphasize:

  • Paper money
  • Magazines and Newspapers
  • Toilet Paper
  • Flyers
  • Paper towels
  • Envelopes
  • Receipts / Airline tickets
  • Many soaps
  • Water and other Plastic Bottles
  • Some types of dental fillings
  • Food wrappers
  • Napkins and more

Avoid these where possible to achieve a better hormone balance and resulting  overall health.
