Nail Polish Danger? Chemical Triphenyl Phosphate.

I wore acrylic nails for 25 years being in the entertainment industry. OPI was my favorite.  I would layer colors to make it unique. I always used a professional nail salon. It came the day when I had a bad break where my nail was exposed to down to the nail bed. I had nails rip off before, band-aids were used frequently. But this one made me reflect, is it really worth it?  Then, I just soaked them off 5 years ago. No more chemicals. Now I realize the smell in the salons is toxic also the ingredients in the nail polish.  Many of the salon workers wear masks for that reason and many are of foreign decent. Now decades later, this study confirms what I already believed.

Triphenyl phosphate (TPHP), a plasticizer dually used in nail polish and as a flame retardant for furniture, was detected in the urine of every woman who volunteered to participate in the study.

Environmental Working Group states,

The study found that when women applied nail polish with TPHP directly to their nails, the levels of a biomarker of that chemical in their urine increased sharply. Technically, the researchers tested the women’s urine for a chemical called diphenyl phosphate or DPHP, which is created when the body metabolizes TPHP. The results represent compelling evidence that TPHP, a suspected endocrine-disrupting chemical also used in plastics manufacturing and as a fire retardant in foam furniture, enters the human body via nail polish.”

25 percent of polishes containing TPHP didn’t have it listed on their label.

Burning Aborted Babies From Canada. Generates Electricity in Oregon from

God please help Our Country from this terrible abuse termed biomedical waste.

Via Life News

An energy plant in Oregon is reportedly burning aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity. UPDATE: Local officials say they will stop the practice while they look into the situation.

The British Columbia Catholic newspaper reported in its edition this week that the remains of aborted and miscarried children from the Canadian province are likely being mixed with everyday trash and sent to an energy plant in Oregon. The paper contacted the British Columbia Health Ministry and received a response back saying that “biomedical waste,” including “human tissue” and “fetal tissue” are being disposed of through officially approved contractors. The provincials officials also confirmed some of that “waste” is shipped to Oregon.

Commissioner Sam Brentano stated,

We provide an important service to the people of this state and it would be a travesty if this program is jeopardized due to this finding. We thought our ordinance excluded this type of material at the waste-to-energy facility. We will take immediate action to ensure a process is developed to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries.”
