Every year as the rate of diseases and resulting symptoms for women increase, scientists, researchers and health professionals are making significant connections between the role of environmental toxins and their effects on women’s health. Environmental toxins exist everywhere – in the air we breathe, the water we drink and in the food we consume. It’s staggering to realize that since the 1940’s, over 100,000 toxic chemicals have been released into the environment.

A 2009 study by the Environmental Working Group found 48 toxic chemicals in the urine samples of five prominent women environmental activists who live across the U.S. These chemicals are commonly used in everyday consumer products and have been linked to birth defects, hormonal dysregulation and increased cancer rates. Health trends in the U.S. suggest that the chemical load plays a part in the growing rates of autism spectrum disorder, diabetes and certain cancers. While the rising number of chronic diseases has many causes, increased exposure to chemicals is one factor.
Toxins and Cancer
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health reports that toxins and chemicals in the environment can cause serious health problems in women, such as cancer, lung disease, or reproductive system problems. They can also make health conditions worse. Scientists are studying the ways toxins in the environment may play a role in female-related conditions such as breast cancer, endometriosis, and menopause. Women who are pregnant or nursing are especially vulnerable to exposure to some toxic substances — including lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, pesticides, solvents, and household chemicals. Exposure to these toxins can increase the risk of miscarriage, preterm birth, and other pregnancy complications. These and other environmental toxins also pose a risk to the healthy development of fetuses and infants.
Toxins and Heart Disease
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that pollution is linked to heart disease, which is the leading cause of death among women. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, data from a recent study on urban air pollution suggest that women have a greater risk of developing fatal coronary heart disease as a result of long-term exposure to airborne particles than their male counterparts. Cancer, the second leading cause of death, is now being tracked by the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network, to better understand the specific connection between over 100 types of cancer and everyday contaminants in our environment.

Toxins Contribute to Gynecological Diseases
When it comes to women’s gynecological health, the amount of research linking womens health problems to environmental estogens is substantial.
“Our studies are beginning to corroborate the idea that environmental estrogen may be associated with endometriosis,” said Germaine Buck-Louis, director of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development’s epidemiology division in Maryland.
In a major new study, two groups of women in the Salt Lake City and San Francisco areas were more likely to be diagnosed with endometriosis if they had high blood levels of the estrogen-like pesticide hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) than women with low levels. HCH has been banned as a crop pesticide in the United States but its abilitiy to build up and remain in the environment has enabled it to persist in some food supplies.
Buck-Louis called the research “revolutionary,” saying that finding the link in both groups of women “is a pretty strong signal” that the connection between endometriosis and the pesticide is certain.
Recent research is also discovering links to additional gynecological problems. Women in Greece diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome were more likely to have higher blood levels of the estrogen-mimicking chemical bisphenol A than women without the disease, according to a study published in 2010.
“It’s certainly plausible that any outside source that alters estrogen levels, even slightly, could contribute to gynecological diseases,” said Dr. Megan Schwarzman, a family physician at San Francisco General Hospital and an environmental health scientist at the University of California, Berkeley.
With exposure to a host of hormone-disrupting chemicals beginning in the womb, some scientists suspect the timing may be key in determining risk of reproductive disease risk later on in life.
“Gynecological problems during the reproductive years may be a predictor of diseases, such as cancer, later in life,” said Barbara Cohn, a reproductive health scientist and director of Child Health and Development Studies at the Public Health Institute in Berkeley, Calif.
“We know from animal models that there are critical periods during early development when cells are rapidly dividing and forming the circuitry through which cells will communicate with each other to form various tissues of the body,” said Retha Newbold, a reproductive biologist at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in North Carolina. “When chemicals alter this set-up, the changes may not be reversible.”
Obesity and Chronic Fatigue
In addition, obesity rates have skyrocketed in the past 20 years, with 50% of women in the U.S. aged 20-74 considered overweight or obese. More and more American women are feeling the effects of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. So many of these issues are due to heavy metal toxicity and correlated neurological, immune and endocrine dysfunction. Toxic chemicals disrupt the metabolic pathways of neurological, immune and endocrine systems, including:
- Interference with the GTP energy molecule in neurons preventing the proper structure and function of neurons and resulting in neurofibrillary tangles, pathognomonic for Alzheimer’s disease and decreased neurotransmitter production. Symptoms would include Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Sleep and Mood disturbance, Addiction, MS, Dementia and Parkinson’s.
- Interference with thyroid hormone metabolism: Mercury, Lead, Cadmium and Arsenic block the conversion of Free T4 to the active Free T3. Free T3 supports a balanced mood, energy, metabolism, regulation of glucose and cholesterol levels, temperature regulation, central obesity and gut motility.
- Interference with production of ATP in cells: Mercury specifically competes with Magnesium to block the release of chemical energy from the ATP bonds. This causes fatigue, weight gain and low metabolic activity.
- Toxins negatively affect cell-mediated immunity and antibody production, resulting in increased infection and tumor development.
- Toxins affect the metabolic pathway of equilibrium of Omega 3 fatty acids and Omega 6 fatty acids. This causes an increase of histamine and leukotrienes, which leads to inflammation, allergy and auto-immune reactions.
- Women with high toxicity have an increased rate of miscarriage. The toxins pass from the mother to the placenta, then to the fetus. The average newborn in the U.S. has over 206 toxic chemicals. Toxins can also pass from mother to child through breast milk.
