A frightening yet informative new study on the correlation between parabens and incidences of breast cancer has just been released via The Huffington Post.
“Parabens are chemicals used as a preservative in a number of cosmetics and personal care products including deodorant, shampoo, makeup, lotions and oral care products, as well as in processed food items and some pharmaceutical products.”
“The estrogen-mimicking properties of most parabens are believed to be a factor responsible for the rising cases of breast cancer.”
The risks associated with parabens don’t add up to the benefits of using them. They are commonly used as a cheap preservative in cosmetics and personal care products. Be sure to read the ingredients before purchasing any products for you or your family, and do your research!
