There are two types of xenoestrogens AKA chemical estrogens – synthetic and natural.
Synthetic Chemical Estrogen
Synthetic chemical estrogen is found in PCBs, BPA and phthalates. Avoid plastic bottles and containers (unless BPA free), chemical cleaning products, receipts, chemical personal care products (containing DBP, DEP, DEHP, BzBP and DMP), chemical scented candles, plastic bags and do not use plastic in microwaves. Look for beauty products that contain no parabens, phthalates or sulphates.
Natural Sources of Chemical Estrogen
Natural sources are called phytoestrogens and are derived from plants. Things to avoid are soy products, chick peas, red beans, black eyed peas, black beans, flax and non-organic food products.
