In this video, Dr. Matthew Davis, director of Crossroads Chiropractic, shares important information looking at titanium dioxide dangers. Titanium dioxide dangers are widely unknown and found in many of our everyday products. The inorganic compound is commonly found in processed foods, powdered sugar, toothpaste, sunscreen and chewing gum. It is also added to pharmaceutical drugs and paper, and it has serious health risks when inhaled, ingested or absorbed.
Without nutrient value or necessity in your products, titanium dioxide is used simply to whiten products from paint to sunscreen and food products. Titanium dioxide also naturally reflects ultraviolet (UV) light, which is why it is added to sunscreen. Research shows that when topically used, titanium dioxide can result in allergic reactions, some of which may be serious.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer found that when inhaled as a dust, titanium dioxide is classified as possibly carcinogenic. Several animal studies found an increase in lung cancer with inhalation of titanium dioxide, as the particles are not easily cleared from the lung tissue.
A French commissioned study revealed that, titanium dioxide may be associated with leaky gut and inflammatory bowel disease, both of which are associated with further negative health conditions.
Due to the seriousness of the cancer threat, Dunkin Donuts, the global donut company and coffeehouse made a commitment to take titanium dioxide out of the powdered sugar on their donuts.
Titanium dioxide has adverse affects on the gut and brain. It has been has been associated with leaky gut and inflammatory bowel disease. Further research also demonstrates titanium dioxide may contribute to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
Research suggests titanium dioxide may interact with other chemicals in the environment, increasing toxicity and having adverse effects on wildlife.
