Cancer Research UK dispels the cancer-causing myth of these four common cosmetics

by , 01 October 2014

Health fanatics have stopped using deodorant, lipstick, hair dye and moisturiser because of the suggestion they may cause cancer.

The problems is, not only are there tons of smelly people walking around with incredibly dry skin, they don't have any real scientific evidence to back up their claims.

It's simply a case of: “They contain chemicals; they must be bad for you.”

So what Cancer Research UK is saying is that you need to look at the evidence This way you can make your own decisions whether you want to use the products or not.

Here's what they say about these four common “offending, cancer-causing” products…

“Controversial” Treatment Bringing People Back from the Brink of Death
Arlindo Olivera had Stage 4 lung cancer. He was just 59 years old. And not much time left, if his doctors were to be believed.
It’s a good thing he didn’t listen. After completing his course of treatment, he was cancer-free.
But it wasn’t chemo or radiation that saved him. Instead, he turned to this natural treatment. It costs a fraction of conventional therapies…It’s been confirmed by numerous scientists and experts. People who have received this therapy report that it has no toxic or unusual side effects. But the mainstream still refuses to embrace it.
Click here for this natural course of treatment….

There’s no undeniable proof to suggest these four cosmetics cause cancer

1.    Deodorants: The reason health fanatics are afraid of deo is because they think they contain Parabens. Parabens have a link to cancer when there’s a high exposure to them.
Deos don’t contain them.
Parabens are in some other cosmetic products and have a preservative function. But they haven’t been in deodorants for years!
2.    Lipstick: Many brands contain lead, which may come from the ingredient mixing. Manufacturers can’t simply add lead to their products but that doesn’t mean they don’t get into them!
The Food and Drug Agency found very low levels of lead in their 2011 survey of 400 lipsticks. But they said it’s not enough to be harmful to your health.
You can easily check whether your favourite brand contains lead. Clean a small surface of your skin on your wrist or hand and let it dry properly. Apply a streak of lipstick to your skin. Now take a real silver, gold or pewter piece of jewellery and rub it into the lipstick smudge as thoroughly as you can.
Wait a few minutes to allow a reaction to take place. If the lipstick smudge turns darker or goes black, it contains lead.
3.    Moisturisers: There are claims that say using a moisturiser makes you more susceptible to skin cancer.
There was evidence of this in lab rats, but they’d already had extremely high levels of sun exposure before the moisturiser test. There was no evidence of the same effect in humans who have normal sun exposure.
4.    Hair dye: There’s concern about semi-permanent and permanent hair dyes because of the chemicals they contain and the length of time they’re on your head.
In a study of hairdressers, who are constantly exposured to these chemicals, there was evidence of a very small increase in bladder cancer risk. There was no risk associated with people who use have their hair dyed.
Cancer Research UK says, to be on the safe side if you dye your hair by yourself, follow the instructions on the box to the T. Always wash the colour off in the designated time and ensure you wash it off thoroughly.
Other ways you can protect yourself from chemicals in hair dyes is to always wear gloves, never mix dyes and never tint eyelashes or eyebrows using hair dye.
This information should help you to make an informed decision about what products you choose to use and those you want to avoid.
And remember this one fact…

Reduce your overall exposure to toxins to protect your overall health and prevent cancer

Two of the main aspects of your health and your cancer risk have to do with your overall toxin exposure and your body’s ability to detox.
Your general toxin exposure has to do with preservatives you eat, chemicals you come into contact with on a daily basis and other areas of your life that exposes you to toxins.
Your body’s ability to detox comes from your liver. A healthy diet is essential to these detox pathways as they need specific nutrients to be able to function optimally.
That’s why it’s important you don’t just focus on one aspect of your life, like cosmetics, which you think might be causing cancer. Think about your overall health and how it’s influencing your body’s ability to fight off harm.
