Bacteria that eat oil “are known to mimic testosterone and estrogen” — “Exceedingly low concentrations” may “hamper endocrine functions”


Bacteria saved gulf from ruin, Washington Post, January 11, 2011:

It's too soon to declare a happy, green ending to this story. We don't really know how the chemicals that bacteria release after eating oil will affect human and animal health. Some of them are known to mimic testosterone and estrogen. It's possible, although somewhat unlikely, that these compounds hamper endocrine functions at exceedingly low concentrations.

About the Endocrine System:

Although we rarely think about them, the glands of the endocrine system and the hormones they release influence almost every cell, organ, and function of our bodies. The endocrine system is instrumental in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue function, and metabolism, as well as sexual function and reproductive processes.

    You can be sued for peddling your products online. Use caution. It's also against floridaoilspilllaw.com policy for any individual to use their site to peddle their goods.

    BTW, what product can guarantee that the cancer growing in many living along the coast can be stopped -- as the people *continue* to live around and breathe in the toxins. Beyond that, they eat the toxins in their food and drink the toxins in their water.

    How many thousands of dollars will your product cost to serve 4 people for the remainder of their lifespan of 4 years or more?

  • could we ask the goverment to at least test lab the compound ? i think something that may hamper human endrocrine should not taken lightly

    humanhealth--
    Unfortunately, the "Government" is a pack of self-serving
    paycheck-collectors protecting their jobs by following along
    with the EVIL masters who control everything.
    The Agenda seems to be working to intentionally destroy
    people, Millions and Millions of People. They don't care about
    anyone but themselves.

    My read/interpreted what the article is conveying. "that these compounds hamper endocrine functions at exceedingly low concentrations." Meaning the glands will not function properly with small amounts of these compounds , Not about "low Testosterone" Don't think putting it in the belly will fix the problem.

  • Thanks for the article post as well as some information on Endocrine System. I think it's important for people to inform themselves about this matter through looking at sites like this and reading all the helpful information you've provided.

  • Thanks for the short, yet highly efficient post! I'm definitely going to do some more personal research about the endocrine system and the bacterias mentioned. This is very helpful!
