Is BPA-FREE Plastic really safe to use?


All is not safe in the world of BPA-free plastics. Let’s look at how plastics labelled as ‘BPA-free’ are actually not quite different from their BPA versions.

From reusable water bottles, plastic plates, to the liners in the canned foods, BPA (Bisphenol A) can be found.

BPA is proven to have a disruptive impact on normal hormone functions. With an explosion of research on BPA in the past few years, many studies have shed light on its negative effect on wildlife in terms of their reproductive and metabolic functions. These side effects are not just limited to the world of animals, but also have a grave impact on human reproductive functions that can be carried from generation to another.

As more and more companies moved away from using BPA in their products, a rise in BPA-free products started to gain momentum. After a few years, different versions of the BPA-free plastics like the BPS, BPF, BPZ, and many more became common in everyday products.

What is surprising that despite been tagged as BPA-free, these all basically contain a similar chemical structure to that of BPA, with just slight differences in each of them. So, all is not safe in the world of BPA-free plastics. The truth is, BPA or any of its variations, are very likely to disrupt the early reproductive functions in animals as well as humans.

What is now required is the regulation and banning of chemicals like BPA by class and not individually. As consumers, we can limit our use of plastics by replacing them with other sustainable alternatives like glass and steel.

7 Health Benefits Of Orgasms That Will Rock Your Socks

7 Health Benefits Of Orgasms

Needless to say, having sex is good, especially if it culminates in an orgasm. Most people believe that an orgasm is merely the climax of sex and something which gives you an inexplicable feeling of pleasure.

However, what most people don’t know is that sex is incredibly beneficial to the health as well. So if you are someone who is interested in learning about the 7 mental health benefits of orgasms, then read on! –

1)      As anyone who has had an orgasm would know, that orgasms go a long way in helping to relieve stress. In this day and age, stress is one of the biggest problems people are forced to deal with on a daily basis.

2)      Many people find it hard to forget their problems and keep calm. In this regard, orgasms are highly effective in bringing about a sense of calm. This sense of calm allows people to clear their minds and think straight.

3)      Orgasms, and sex in general, help to bring people together and make them feel connected. Orgasms are therapeutic, especially for those suffering feelings of loneliness and insecurity.

4)      Irrespective of your age, when you have an orgasm, you feel younger. This may be due to the fact that orgasms improve and regulate muscle strength, bone density and even body fat.

5)      By eliminating feelings of irritability and distraction, orgasms will instantly make you more focused.

6)      Believe it or not, when you have an orgasm, or even sex in general, it brings with it an increase in one’s self esteem. People, who do not get sexual gratification on a regular basis, often end up feeling insecure.

7)      Getting an orgasm, goes a long way to bringing about a feeling of tremendous happiness.

These are simply a few of the health benefits of having an orgasm. As beneficial as orgasms may be to men and women alike, keep in mind that it is essential to always use protection, especially if you are just having a casual fling with someone who you have never really met before. Having safe sex using a condom will not take away from the experience at all.

Take matters into your own hands, whether you have ‘good genes’ or not!

Take matters into your own hands, whether you have ‘good genes’ or not

The nature vs nurture controversy with regards to people’s psychological ability is something that has existed since time in memorial. Yet when we discuss health, people the world over cannot seem to put a finger on whether it is our genes, the environment in which we live in or the lifestyle which we follow, that has the maximum impact on our overall wellness.

Interestingly enough, recently, Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America went for his health check-up and despite his busy schedule, his erratic eating habits and his flamboyant lifestyle, his doctor said that he is in great shape for a man of his age. This would seem to indicate that genes do play an intrinsic role in determining one’s overall health. When considered in an objective manner, it does seem that, of the three factors, our genes seem to play the most dominant role of all.

Some common diseases that are more often than not transmitted from one generation to the next include-

  • Heart Diseases,
  • Diabetes,
  • Cancer,
  • Blood Pressure Related Issues.

It truly cannot be denied that people who have ‘good genes’ are less susceptible to getting certain diseases.

Though genes play a major role in determining people’s health, your environment as well as your lifestyle have a part to play also. People working in a poor work environment run the risk of contracting certain life threatening and problematic diseases as well. Take for example, factory workers, who may be forced to inhale certain toxic gases on a daily basis are very likely to contract lung diseases or other breathing issues. Additionally people living terribly unhealthy lifestyles, by eating only junk food and not participating in any physical exercise are also likely to be affected by major problems. This is backed by recent research.

So, despite the fact that genes may seem to be playing the more dominant role when it comes to our health, the fact that our genes are out of our sphere of control means that we should make it a point to take care of our lifestyle and the kind of environment we expose ourselves to.

Rather than focusing on something we cannot alter it is a better idea to work on the things which are in our hands!
