A group of chemicals known as Pthalates have been found to increase the risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity. and now new research from Washington University, Missouri, indicates they may also cause early Menopause. Pthalates are found in plastics, cosmetics (including make-up and hairspray), household products and food packaging. Women exposed to higher levels have been found to have significant hormone fluctuations that cause the early onset of Menopause, an average of 2 1/2 years before other women.
Pthalates are believed to be one of the reasons so many women are experiencing prolonged Peri-Menoopaue symptoms, including hot flashes, moodiness, mental fogginess, sleeplessness, anxiety, depression, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, weight gain and other symptoms of Menopause. In some cases, these chemicals may be causing women to stop having periods as much as 15 years too soon.Details
