Lung Cancer, Ace Inhibitor, Prostate Cancer discussed on Dr. Daliah

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

In all twenty eight samples of products made with conventionally grown ups noting all but two of the twenty eight samples tested. They had levels of faucet above the benchmark of one hundred sixty parts per billion. I don't want any of it in there. But I guess it's going to be in there. So apparently Quaker oatmeal squares breakfast cereal had the highest level of the urbicide. So they advocacy group said it was nearly eighteen times higher than their quote children's health benchmark. Now. Quaker instant oatmeal, apples and cinnamon had it Quakers breakfast square, soft baked bars peanut butter variety of Cheerios flavors like chocolate, apple and cinnamon, and very very among others. They say they were within. Acceptable limits. So those are the ones where it wasn't off the chart. These are the ones where Quaker and said, oh meals apples, but Cheerios, whatever they had acceptable limits. WG they say, but just because something is legal doesn't mean it's safe. And that's the key. What is an acceptable? Limit of glide faucet, federal government standards for pesticides in food are often outdated. They claim and not based on the best all Kurt sites the standards for pesticides and other chemicals are also heavily influenced by lobbying from industry. So the findings come after the W T announced in August that it found trace amounts of the ingredient in all the two of the forty five samples of products made with conventionally grown, oats. Some of the items included Quaker, old-fashioned, oats and popular breakfast cereals, made by general mills like Cheerios and lucky charms. I love lucky charms. Why are we like marshmallows elected terms? So the World Health Organization in two thousand fifteen report. So the herbicides glide faucet around but along with insecticides, malathion and diet Zayn on our? Quote, probably carcinogenic to humans. So what would you get that report? Well, it's probably carcinogenic to humans were the hell are people getting that? While where they're getting man is if they have in a lab setting or with an animal been able to cause a cell to change they're gonna say, well, there could be carcinogenicity to humans there could be some carcinogenic component. And that's you probably. If it was carcinogenic if humans that would say, it's a known human carcinogen. But if they have a really been able to test it on humans, so they tested it on rats. Or mice or in a lab setting. They'll say probably carcinogenic to humans. They said there was limited evidence of carcinogenicity in humans for non Hodgkin, lymphoma and prostate cancer. Now, limited evidence means researchers have determined that. There was equal positive association between exposure to this guy falls, eight and cancer. But. Other explanations for the cannot be ruled out. So remember yesterday, we talked about that case where blood pressure medication very common blood pressure. Medications may be linked to lung cancer. And that freaked a lot of people out and the story circulating. It's all over the news and ace inhibitors with the blood pressure medication that we're talking about an ace inhibitor is very very common the payroll ram appeal, Pearl notice Zestril, bonanza Pearl these are any medicine the ill was an ace inhibitor. And these ace inhibitors is one of the most popular type of blood pressure medications because they're Keith because they work. So here's a study sane use of the popular blood pressure. Medication could point you have risk for lung cancer. Maybe a Cam, but we also have to take it to count is one. Lung cancer is the most popular cancer. It's the most common cancer people. Get number two people who have high blood pressure. That's one of the most common medical issues. Afflicted people over one hundred billion people in the US blood pressure. And then number three the most common medication. Use is the ace inhibitor. So when you have all these highly common. Hi, lee. Shall we say? I don't wanna use the word coincidence. But you know. This is the most common cancer is most common condition this the most common medication and whoa. That look there's association between the medication cancer you have to go. Wait, a second is it because it's such a common medication. So that's that's the problem. We kind of have where you have somebody that eats. Let's say a lot of cereal. Well, personally weeks a lot as breakfast cereal may not be eating an egg white for Totta or having a rice cake, and some, you know, I don't know oats. I don't know. I I want to say oatmeal. But, you know, somebody having a high fiber breakfast and a real healthy breakfast. Is it usually the plant person these crapload of breakfast hero? So if somebody that he's a credible. Breakfast cereal has a higher cancer. Is it the breakfast? Or is it maybe because they just do a lot of things wrong. Two thousand seventeen to California's office of environmental health hazard assessment, nounce that faucet would be added to the list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer. So remember California's law where have anything causes cancer or could put somebody a risk? They need to they need to make a note to the public but health professionals like calm down. It's okay. We need to research this more. I want everybody come with this because we are exposed to chemicals and pesticides all the time. So freaking out about breakfast cereal is kind of a waste of energy because we're exposed all the time. Should we slowly start to decrease our exposure? Absolutely. Let's start getting rid of a lot of the plastic. Let's maybe stop stop loading up on perfume and makeup. And cologne. And deal and our fancy deodorants. Now, I love not being around someone who smells, but here's a really healthy that we get out of a shower and using perfume, soap and then load ourselves up with chemicals before we exit the house, and then we breathe in a whole bunch of chemicals in our car. And then we have an air freshener in our car. And then we drink water out of our plastic water bottle, heat something up in the microwave or grab a breakfast sandwich. Or drink coffee. That's in a coffee Cup that's lined with that shiny stuff. And may have BPA in it. We are always exposed. Maybe we'll grab a banana and that bananas full pesticides. So yeah, we wanna make sure that whatever we are buying doesn't have extra stuff, but the environmental working group, which is kind of one of my favorite consumer groups because they really do a lot. They are also kind of noisy in that. Well, this has this has this and my answer to them as well, da. But on the flip side is kind of nice if they're making all of us, you know, aware so my recommendation to you was just try to go fresh wash things off I like organic. But I think organic is too expensive to recommend at this time, and to take everything with a great assault of realize that we live in a society where we are constantly being bombarded. Constantly bombarded by stuff. So I, you know. One eight seven seven one eight seven seven zero CD now when we come back. We're being told that there are not enough fruits and vegetables grown to feed the planet. Now for those of us that don't eventually, no big. But for some of us that are like, wait a second. I just listened to the I'm going to start eating healthy. This is the bad news. And we have a little bit more information.
