I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Cosmetics linked to problem in infant sons

Sadly this is a sign of the age we are in. We are technologically wise but foolish in God's truth.

The Minneapolis (red) Star and Tribune has published an article taken from research at the University of Minnesota that shows a direct connection between the chemicals in pregnant women's makeup and genetic deformity in infant male genitals. These chemicals are also used in some plastics.

The chemical class called phthalates can be found in the urine in pregnant women who wear makeup with this class of chemicals in them.

You can read the whole article here.

What I again find correlation with is the idea that vanity in all of its forms bring untold trouble to mankind. What other, yet undiscovered, links are out there, yet to be found, that reveal that the main cause of our sorrows is the very lifestyle we live? Am I suggesting that women discard all makeup? No ! If the barn needs painting, paint it. Just be content with older technologies before jumping head long into the newest gloss or adhesive. Women have worn makeup for years without these results. They were just more natural in source.

Every new technology is not necessarily from God. For example, birth control, abortion, nuclear weapons, and cloning.
