Environmental toxins may play a role in the development and progression of Endometriosis?
Do I sound like a dirty hippy? Maybe. But there are a lot of theories out there about what may cause or influence Endometriosis. But scientific studies have been long-published, and are also newly-emerging, that support the evidence that environmental toxins play a role in Endo’s development and progression.
A study published in the 2015 book “Endometriosis A Comprehensive Update” discusses just those factors. The abstract states, “[h]uman exposure to toxins is often unavoidable, but measures including a detailed history taken by clinicians and lifestyle changes can help detect and limit exposure and assist in the body’s detoxification processes. Growing evidence suggests a possible link between endometriosis and environmental pollutants.”
So I may sound like a dirty hippy, which is okay by me, but the chemicals and toxins that we expose our bodies to may very well play a role in the progression of this disease. You may want to do a little bit more digging on this subject.
