Parabens are  cancer causing chemical preservatives found in almost ALL cosmetics and body care products and many  drugs.  A comprehensive study of women with breast cancer published in the January 2012 issue of the Journal of Applied Technology found parabens in 99% of  breast tumors studied. This evidence clearly links these toxic chemicals to women’s cancers.

Researchers from the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, found that almost all, ninety nine percent, of the tissue samples collected from women participating in the study contained at least one paraben, and 60 percent of the samples contained at least five parabens.

Parabens are estrogen-mimetics or chemicals that can act like estrogens in the body. They are commonly found in make up, shampoo, lotion, shaving cream, toothpaste, mouthwash as well as some processed foods and in many over the counter and prescription drugs, just about all personal care products. They are used to inhibit the growth of bacteria and increase shelf life.

What should you do to keep yourself and your family safe?

 Use only personal care products free of parabens. You will have to read labels and find brands that have women’s health in mind. Wouldn’t you rather support companies that care about these issues?
