New endocrine disruptor found in bottled water


this is serious stuff!

"German researchers have used a combination of bioassay work and high-resolution mass spectrometry to pin down the source of endrocrine-disrupting behaviour in 18 bottled water products. Of 24,520 suspect chemicals, the one that showed consistent results across all tests and displayed anti-androgenic and anti-estrogenic activity is di(2-ethylhexyl) fumarate (DEHF)."

and quite worrying...

and imagine...there are no legal limits AT ALL for these compounds in food / water...

nutritional and manufacturing ...chaos...
