Could This Innocent Household Item Be Making Your Butt Bigger Plus Increasing Cancer Risk?

I’m guessing you’ve heard all the recent scares about plastics in our water and food supplies. In the light of recent current affairs attention, BPA (Bisphenol-A) and other xenoestrogens are the ‘toxins du jour’ and companies such as Heinz are falling over backwards to rid their packaged foods (such as baby food) of these harmful chemicals.

And well they should. According to naturopath Lisa Guy, a recent study from the Yale School of Medicine, published in The Endocrine Society journal, Hormones and Cancer, found that exposure to chemicals such as BPA in the womb can increase a person’s risk of breast cancer later in life. If health risks don’t scare you then you may be interested to know that increased exposure to xenoestrogens goes hand in hand with increased lower body fat storage. Yup. Those pear shaped hips might be genetic in part, but the reality is that your lifestyle says a lot more about your body shape than what your genes do. Through the Biosignature, we know that an excess of synthetic estrogen can result not just in higher risk of breast, prostate, and other cancers, but also plays havoc with a host of other hormonal functions such as fertility and libido. Oh – and while estrogen can increase lower body fat in females (particularly), it also does a swift one on the guys, going hand in hand with aromatisation of testosterone (your body converting testosterone to estrogen), and female-like characteristics such as man boobs. An estrogen imbalance can also make it very tough for you to build lean muscle.

The reason xenoestrogens affect your health so much is that molecularly they are so similar to human estrogen that your body cannot tell the difference. The more ‘fake’ estrogens you are exposed to, the more of an estrogen imbalance you can unwittingly create hormonally.

but they’re everywhere!

Xenoestrogens are rife not only in plastics and other household items, but also in pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides (which is just one reason I always advocate organic food).

And let’s face it. Environmental chemicals such as pesticides are everywhere. Here in Australia, planes are sprayed externally with pesticides as soon as they land on the tarmac. “Welcome to Australia, and please accept this nice gift of synthetic estrogen while you’re here. Sorry, no refusals”. The truth is that you can never fully control your environment, which makes it all the more important, of course, that you do take charge where possible.

Offender number one: the humble water bottle

In the spotlight at the moment is the humble water bottle. While many doctors will tend to take the more PC approach (“the evidence is not clear either way so let’s just wait and see … kinda like we did with lead. And asbestos. Oh well; I’m sure it will all be fine!”) alternative health practitioners the world over have long warned clients and family of the dangers of too much plastics exposure.

BPA (which hardens plastic) is found most commonly in water bottles, but also baby bottles (and baby toys, hence the brilliant book Slow Death By Rubber Duck), most plastic kitchenware, and is also used to line cans of tinned food as well as many milk and juice containers. And whilst it’s true that heat combined with plastic causes the most toxic damage, the truth is that anything housed in plastic will be absorb xenoestrogens in some amount. In fact – and this one freaked me out big time –  if you’re thinking that drinking bottled water is not so bad as long as you don’t let the water heat up, think again. According to a client of mine who works for Coca-Cola, all bottled water (and, I’m guessing, all bottled beverages) is hot poured. They do this to kill bacteria. Awesome.

so what’s a health conscious small-booty-lovin’ person to do?

Well, like many aspects of healthy living, it’s going to take a little change and effort. But really? Nothing that difficult considering the outstanding difference it may make to your health.

  • Use Pyrex containers for your food, or BPA free plastic.
  • Use BPA free water bottles with filtered water from home, or stainless steel.
  • If you can’t find ‘BPA free’, know that you should avoid the recycling number 7, or the letters “PC”. The labels 1, 2, and 4 are safe.
  • For babies and small children use ONLY BPA free bottles, dummies, teething rings, and even toys. Especially bath toys as they are heated up.
  • Many chemicals used in skincare and bathing products are xenoestrogen based and may disrupt your endocrine system. To find out what you’re really slathering all over your body visit this useful website.
  • The contraceptive pill is one of the most common ways to increase estrogen. You may like to discuss with your doctor the possibility of going to a lower dose pill. I’ve heard it said that many of the fitness models use Yasmin or Yas due to it’s minimal effect on estrogen and increased body fat.
  • Avoid chicken because of the hormones? Wrong! I’m happy to say that hormones have not been used in Australia in poultry farming since the 1960’s. This is a myth. If you want to be sure though (and to avoid the effects of a poor diet and pesticides), choose free-range organic poultry only.

final thoughts: big butts and big(ger) boobs

Now I don’t know how you feel about big boobs. Personally, I’m rapt to have my pregnancy-estrogen-boosted chest finally back to its normal flat(ish) self as it’s far more practical for training. Funnily enough, my partner doesn’t really agree with me. Anyway, fortunately or unfortunately as the case may be, it would appear that environmental and nutritional estrogens are causing a significant increase in the average bust size. According to Monash University women’s health specialist Professor Susan Davis the levels of estrogen in women’s bodies is affected by our environment, and those levels are making themselves known in curves everywhere.

Sunday Life magazine journalist Erika Woods writes that “in 1960 the average women’s breast size was 10B in Australia. 10 years ago, it was 12B, (while) today it’s 14C”. And apparently bra manufacturers such as Triumph are trialing sizes as large as a J cup. Yikes! If you’re thinking that this is just because women are bigger overall, you’d be partially correct. A 2005 National Health Survey found that 39% of Aussie women are overweight, and certainly we all know that the average size (now a 14) is far higher than it was a generation or two back. Yet FHM editor Guy Mosel comments that “even women with skinny bodies seem to have over-developed breasts now, which isn’t a shape that used to exist at all”

Could plastics be playing a part? Can we really blame our environment and innocuous household items such as plastic water bottles for our changing body shape and increased health concerns? Or are we just trying to avoid responsibility for poor nutrition and the effects of modern stressful living? I say it’s up to you to decide. But I know where I’m putting my money, and it’s no longer the water bottle vending machine.

Your thoughts?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

Rebel.
Upstart.
Fuck the system; screw the rules.
Won’t do what they told me.
Too much.
Unreasonable.
Ridiculous.
Unprofessional.
Crazy!

Should I go on? I could, but I think you get the picture.

You’re the one who is not only not like the other PEOPLE, you’re also not like the other entrepreneurs.

They, they actually think they’re different; non-conformists?! Don’t make me laugh. You and I both see it as it is:

They just wanna be told how to build a pretty little website and a pretty little social media page or three and a pretty little online product or course and get their pretty little headshots and do a pretty little pre-scripted dance all over the internet so that other equally pretty fucking bland and boring and same same-y peoples pay them money,

And they can all sit in a pretty little womans circle together patting each other linking elbows and stroking each others hair and singing Kumbaya as the sun sets over another day of sinking ever deeper into the unremarkableness that is their lives.

They are the ones who are not only willing to jump through hoops, they also want to build more hoops for other people; they want to perpetuate the hoop jumping life and their whole sales pitch is basically some version of “I will help you to have a better and shinier hoop, come see!”

lolol

BUT REALLY.

Meanwhile, you –

You’ve tried the hoop-jumping life, maybe more than what you care to admit. And, whilst you’ve nothing against sitting around with other ladeez and stroking each others hair, you and your girls; the real ones?

You don’t exactly fit in in the typical woman’s circle.

You don’t feel at home with the pretty-preneurs, not even on the internet let alone in real life.

You don’t actually GIVE a fuck about having all your shit perfect,

Polished,

And just so –

And the idea of having sales and marketing and content processes which you have to systematically pre-plan and then work through and endlessly join dots with?

Makes you want to hurl.

Sure –

You’ve bought in at times to do the idea that maybe you DO gotta do it as they say.

An automated webinar, perhaps?? Facebook ads which carefully and smartly tell the world who you are and how you can help? A sales plan proven and tested by the greats. The gradual sinking slow decline of your soul, your joy, your dreams, and even your pussy as everything within you that once knew she could HAVE IT ALL AND DO LIFE HER WAY SLOWLY DRIES,

WITHERS TO NOTHING,

AND DIES?

Sure –

Why not

And look.

It’s not that any of these things are bad or wrong. Maybe right now you’ve got to a certain point by playing by the rules … kind of. Following what ‘logic’ suggests you do. Breaking free here and there with wild little jaunts into over the top madness, noticing how THAT lights you up and also how people respond to it … but ultimately continuing to go back to trying to find the right fucking system to get you to where you want to go,

Because this thing of trying to just be you interspersed with trying to get it all right and make it work, well –

It’s God damn tiring –

But also, in the end, if we’re going to be black and white about it, it hasn’t got you to where you want to be!!

You KNOW you should be making SO much more money.

NOW.

With consistency, and yeah, while of course of COURSE you’re down for doing the work, you also feel like it SHOULD be a lot easier, more flow

And you know that you know that you know that you’ve still not let out the most unrestrained and fully expressed side of you!

– The you they can’t look away from
– The you they are MAGNETIZED by
– The you who automatically commands a huge freakin’ following, and sales to match it

You know who I’m talking about –

THE MILLIONAIRE REBEL YOU!

Starting January 18th!

>>> https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/rebelmillionaire/

The revolutionary fucking leader who tears SHREDS off of normal every damn day before the rest of the world has barely sipped its coffee!

Who is FULLY unleashed in what she says, how she shows up, how she does business, how she does life.

Who does not give a fuck about following rules! Or sales systems! Or strategies! Who can and will do what works for HER, and if it happens to resemble other ways people build an audience and make a fuckload of money online, cool, and if not, so what! That is not the point! The point is –

She knows what works for her.
She backs herself unapologetically.
She DOES it.

And she gets the damn results. The BIG results. The CONSISTENT results. The FUCK yes results, not just with money but with the VIBERY of it all.

Imagine …

Waking up every day and KNOWING you have crushed the day before it already begun because THAT IS WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU ROLL!

* Your shit sells (at any and all price point)
* Your creativity and inner ideas machine flows endlessly (you always know what to put out into the world and that when you speak people PAUSE EVERYTHING AND LISTEN, whether it is with free content and shenaniganery or with your paid stuff)
* You don’t even have to think about low end or high end or how to take people through a value ladder or some such bullshit, the value ladder is YOU CONTINUING TO BE YOU, and the more that you DO you the more people just take themselves through whatever it is you’re offering!
* It is easy, natural, fun, and OBVIOUS how to build your automated income, funnels, the ‘cash machine’ side of your business.
* In fact the whole damn thing feels fun and easy and like you’re just being you (the full on you, the too much you, the rebel you, the fuck all of ’em THIS IS WHAT I STAND FOR AND NOW I’M GONNA TELL YOU you!),
* and at the same time you have the DEEPLY grounded and certain knowledge that the way you’re doing it, hot mess and chaos vibes and all, is WORKING. PS – the reason you feel certain of this is because your bank balance and soulmate audience and their feedback reflects it, not bc your spirit guides told you it’s coming

All of this is ALREADY available to you.

It is who you are and what you were born for.

You did not come here for normal!

You are one of the truly crazy ones, who has something inside of her that will leave the world BREATHLESS –
and allow her to make millions and impact millions –

BUT NOT IF SHE CONTINUES TO DO BUSINESS AND LIFE BY TRYING TO SOMEHOW BE A NON-CONFORMIST WHO CONTINUALLY CAVES AND CONFORMS.

For this to work,

REALLY work, like next next NEXT level $ and life flow work,
you’re going to need to FULLY turn your back on the idea that your breakthrough is waiting on the other side of you adjusting, filtering, compromising, playing the game the way the other entrepreneurs are playing it, or worrying about what the fuck your social media looks like!

What you’re going to need to do is simple:

FLICK THE DAMN REBEL MILLIONAIRE SWITCH BABY.
