Microplastics and Endocrine Disruption: A Threat to Our Children

The discovery of microscopic plastics in tap water worldwide, as reported by Therep, has raised concerns about the potential health risks associated with these contaminants. Families with small children should be especially cautious, as young children are more vulnerable to the harmful effects of microplastics and the chemicals they carry. In this brief article we will discuss the potential dangers of endocrine system interference from microplastics and how installing a reverse osmosis (RO) system in your home can help protect your family, particularly your little ones.

Safeguarding Your Family’s Health by using reverse osmosis:

Microplastics can act as carriers for harmful chemicals, such as bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates, which have been linked to endocrine system interference. The endocrine system plays a crucial role in regulating growth, development, metabolism, and reproduction. Young children, whose bodies are still developing, are especially susceptible to the harmful effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs).

Exposure to EDCs can lead to a range of health issues, including:

  • Impaired cognitive development
  • Behavioral changes
  • Altered reproductive function
  • Increased risk of childhood obesity
  • Weakened immune system
