Why you shouldn’t throw away your shells
- by admin
If you’re a turtle shell fanatic, you’re going to have a lot of fun tossing your shells in the garbage.
But if you’re worried about the toxins in those shells, you might want to reconsider.
A new study published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry found that the compounds used in fertilizer can cause cancer and reproductive toxicity.
The study was conducted by researchers from the University of British Columbia and the University for a New Hope Research Institute in Japan.
It looked at the effects of a chemical called terpenes, a class of compounds with similar biological functions, on a number of organs, including the testes, kidneys and brain.
Terpenes are a group of chemicals that are present in a wide range of plants and animals.
They’re thought to be the main source of the hormone oxytocin in humans, but it’s unclear whether they have similar effects on animals.
The researchers found that a chemical in the fertilizer, known as phytochemicals, caused the body to produce more of one compound known as chlorpyrifos, a neurotoxin.
That compound was the main driver of the increase in the liver and brain tumors.
A second chemical, phytosterols, also produced a big increase in tumors, but the effects were weaker.
Terpenes also caused an increase in lung tumors.
While terpenol concentrations were the biggest culprit, the compounds also produced effects on several other organs.
The study also found that those effects weren’t uniform.
A chemical called phenoxyethanol was the strongest contributor to liver and lung tumors, and other chemicals also caused tumors.
Some compounds, like the organophosphates chlorpulfosulfate (CPS), chlorpyroxene, phytic acid, and chloroquine, were more toxic than others.
These chemicals, which are used in many fertilizers, can be toxic to certain organs, but they were not linked to increased rates of cancer.
The results of the study are consistent with previous studies that found chlorp-sulfate-producing compounds to be more toxic.
They found that CPS and chlorpyronene caused cancer in rats and that the organosulfur compounds were not.
Phytic acids also caused lung tumors in rats, but that was not linked with an increased risk of lung cancer in humans.
Another study by the researchers found no difference in lung cancer rates among people who ate a variety of fertilizers.
However, the new study does have some limitations.
The researchers were able to use samples from two different kinds of turtle shells, and there was a very small sample size.
They also weren’t able to compare the effects on other organs, such as the liver, kidneys, and brain, which were much larger.
This isn’t the first time researchers have found terpenoids are linked to cancer.
Earlier studies found that phosphorous compounds in the shell were linked to cancers in humans and rodents.
The most toxic of the fertilizers is chlorpyrus, which is used in fertilizers for fertilizers and irrigation.
This chemical is found in shrimp, fish, oysters, shrimp, mussels, and shellfish, among other types of animals.
Chlorpyrus is also found in some fertilizers that are used for the production of fish eggs and shell eggs.
