This is an excellent documentary on key health effects of "hormone mimicking" chemicals found in everyday products.
The Disappearing Male is about one of the most important, and least publicized, issues facing the human species: the toxic threat to the male reproductive system.
The last few decades have seen steady and dramatic increases in the incidence of boys and young men suffering from genital deformities, low sperm count, sperm abnormalities and testicular cancer.
At the same time, boys are now far more at risk of suffering from ADHD, autism, Tourette's syndrome, cerebral palsy, and dyslexia.
The Disappearing Male takes a close and disturbing look at the ubiquitous chemicals many doctors and researchers now suspect are responsible for many of these developmental problems: endocrine disruptors.
The "Beat the Micro Bead" campaign by 5Gyres.org asks you to sign their petition urging Proctor & Gamble to eliminate plastic polyethylene micro-beads from their products by no later than January 1st, 2015.
The tiny beads of plastic, which are employed as an exfoliant in personal care products, are designed to be washed down the drain. They go through the sewage system and many enter the natural environment where they can have a devastating effect over the long term as they are ingested up the food chain.
Please contribute to this campaign by asking retailers to STOP selling consumer products containing micro-beads and urging manufacturers to STOP using micro-beads in consumer products.
We launched Life Without Plastic (“LWP”) in 2006 after several years of daydreaming about how to make a contribution to reducing the large quantities of plastic that are consumed every second of every day around the world.
We wanted to address the environmental disaster that the consumption of plastic is causing, and the damage that leaching plastic can cause to human and animal health.
Activists for a plastic-free planet
We quickly realized that before we could effectively help people reduce their plastic consumption, we had to be able to point them toward non-plastic alternatives that could replace the plastic items currently used in day-to-day life.
Our son was born in 2003, and he was the catalyst. He made us look more actively for alternatives in North America and in other countries around the world.

Welcome back to the fifties -- but with stainless steel instead of aluminum! This ice cube tray will remind you of the one your parents or grandparents used to have and is perfect for freezing small portions of food -- chopped herbs, crushed garlic, pesto, baby food, and of course ice cubes! Just fill, freeze, and pull the lever to cleanly cut your cubes.
This ice cube tray is made of high quality 18-8, 304 food grade stainless steel. Please be aware that it has been re-constructed out of stainless steel based on an antique aluminum model. We suggest not using aluminum ice cube trays available on E-bay or at a garage sale as tiny particles of toxic aluminum could end up in your iced tea.
Please be sure to clean well before and after using - it is dishwasher-safe. There are many little nooks and crannies in the mechanism, so food residue and dust can get caught. For these little spaces we suggest using a Q-tip with vinegar or baking soda in warm water.

I love this ice tray! It works so great. I've been able to freeze coconut milk, heavy cream, and over a gallon of chicken stock (just to name a few) all in these cubes for later recipes. If you fill the tray up too much it does take a little upper body strength to break the ice. Additionally, sometimes the ice molds do not come out perfectly; however, that would be the case if you were using a plastic and less old-timey looking ice tray as well. I did not mind shelling out a few extra dollars for good quality and it came in the mail rather quickly. All in all this ice tray is perfect. (Posted on 3/11/2015)
I thought I would like to try out this product and when I first purchased it I really wondered if it would work. I am happy to say that it does and we now use it all the time. The only downside of the design is that they should have placed in one or two more rows so to make the ice smaller. The ice that does come out of this tray is rather large and might not fit into every water bottle. (Posted on 5/11/2014)
