Many celebrities use social media platforms as means of self-branding. On the other hand, Laila Ali has been consciously using different channels to reach out to people across ages and help them understand the varied options available to stay hale and hearty. More so, upon coming across any disconcerting news or story, she makes it a point to share it with everyone. For example, just a day before yesterday, she shared a post warning people about the harmful effects of chewing gum.

Early today, she shared a post initially put by physician Dr. Rachel M.D. The famous medical practitioner has nearly 200k followers on Instagram. So in her message that accompanied a video, she talked about the negative impact of standard products such as lotions, hair products, and containers used for food storage.

According to her, these items might play havoc with hormones. Dr. Rachel says, …because it’s our hair products, it’s our shaving cream, it’s our lotion that can actually disrupt hormones as well. So it’s not just processed food, but it’s the containers we’re storing the food in. And it’s what you’re rubbing on your body, right? If you can imagine if you’ve got a lotion that’s got endocrine disruptors on it…”

Then she explained some items, such as those made of food-grade silicone and stainless steel products, that could be used as alternatives. She said, “This is food-grade silicon….. Now this does not have any toxic materials to it. This is a good example too. For our lunch boxes for the girls, we use stainless steel products. Because the glass is too heavy and they could break it. But if we’re going on a picnic, we might use this because it’s got rubber coated.” 

Her message was to keep clear of ‘plastic and plasticizers as much as you possibly can.The veracity of the doctor’s claims remains unconfirmed. But according to a 2020 article published in, “Plastics contain and leach hazardous chemicals, including endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that threaten human health.” It further added that cancer, diabetes, reproductive problems, and neurological deficits in growing fetuses and children are all possible outcomes of exposure to EDCs, which are substances that disrupt the body’s hormone system.
