Best Kitchen Helpers
The Kitchen is another prime place where we ingest pollutants and estrogens from our environment. Fortunately easy swap can help. The button bring you to my list, the links directly to the chosen products.
Let's face it - plastics are everywhere nowadays. And they all come with substances that harm your sex hormones and disrupt your sleep. Fortunately, if you know that, they can be avoided pretty easily by buying quality products made from ancestral materials like wood, metal, or glass. Even food grade silicone works. Nonetheless, living plastic free is probably not possible anymore. Yet by avoiding it where possible one can drastically decrease the amount of plastics one gets exposed to - especially in the kitchen, where foods are stored in containers, or heated in them this makes a difference.

I started to dive into water & plastic's role as pollutants in our modern environments a year ago with reading Dr. Anthony Jay's 'Estrogeneration*'. A great book diving in these matters.
Consequently, I threw out all plastic I could eliminate for better materials like glass, wood, steel, and food grade silicone. Easy fixes with huge consequences.
Estrogeneration by Dr. Anthony Jay* - A great book on this topic diving deep into the matters of not only water pollution, but also plastics and the mechanisms how the array of substances harm your body. Plus, he has a resource section of products on his website he likes to use.
