(Newswire.net — December 14, 2022) Orlando, FL — Multiple research studies carried out in the past have shown that chemical compounds could have damaging effects on human health. 

A new report warns that phthalates exposure is associated with ADHD symptoms. 

The findings of this research were published in Biological Psychiatry. 

It is worth noting that phthalates are essential components of a number of consumer products, such as plastics, toys, cleaning materials, and personal care items. 

In studies, phthalates have been shown to cause birth defects, hormone disruptions, asthma, and reproductive problems.

This research carried out by Korean scientists have warned strongly against the potentially alarming findings about phthalates. They measured urine phthalate concentrations and assessed the symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

It was done through the use of teacher-reported symptoms and computerized tests that measured attention and impulsivity.

It has been found there is a significant positive link between phthalate exposure and ADHD. This means that the greater the concentration of phthalate metabolites in the urine, the worse the ADHD symptoms and/or test scores.

“These data represent the first documented association between phthalate exposure and ADHD symptoms in school-aged children,” Senior author Yun-Chul Hong, MD, Ph.D., explained.

“This emerging link between phthalates and symptoms of ADHD raises the concern that accidental environmental exposure to phthalates may be contributing to behavioral and cognitive problems in children. This concern calls for more definitive research,” John Krystal, MD, the Editor of Biological Psychiatry, also commented.

In the Summary of the 2005 Third National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is revealed that very limited scientific information is available on potential human health effects of phthalates at levels found in the U.S. population. 

In reducing the health risks linked with exposure to phthalates are other toxins, it is wise to detoxify the body through the use of activated charcoal.

There are many interesting facts about activated charcoal, and one is that it has a rich history as a medical treatment. It draws out impurities and is even a staple in hospital emergency rooms, and this is due to the fact that it is useful in remedying food poisoning. 

Due to its highly porous surface, it sucks up moisture, chemicals, and poisons. Unique formulas like Divine Bounty Activated Charcoal are widely resorted to by consumers today.

Aside from its high potency and purity, this formula is also popularized by the customer satisfaction guarantee it comes with (www.amazon.com/Organic-Activated-Charcoal-Capsules-Whitening/dp/B071NZ5G56).
