Did you know that parabens are absorbed through the skin and have been identified in biopsy samples from breast tumors?
Although there are cases of breast cancer that are attributed to a specific gene mutation (BRCA1 and BRCA2) that is hereditary, many cases of breast cancer are now thought to be the result of environmental toxins. Healthy genes can be turned into oncogenes, found in cancer, when triggered by environmental factors. New research at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scota is revealing that the combination of specific toxins are risk factors for breast and other types of cancer. The Canadian-led “Halifax Project,” including 174 scientists from 26 countries, is rocking scientific approaches to causes of cancer with its series published in the peer-reviewed journal, Carcinogenesis.
What are parabens and why are they a concern?
Parabens are endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can be absorbed through skin, blood and the digestive system. They are used as a preservative in cosmetics to prevent the growth of microbes. The Environmental Working Group found the presence of propyl paraben in nearly 50 American snack foods, including Sara Lee cinnamon rolls, Weight Watchers cakes, Cafe Valley muffins, and La Banderita corn tortillas. For a list of other foods that contain parabens visit the EWG link http://www.ewg.org/research/propyl-paraben. How many parabens has your body consumed today through your diet and products you use on your body? It all adds up! See ‘YOUR BODY’S POTENTIALLY HARMFUL CHEMICAL EQUATION’ below.
FOUND IN: Shampoos, conditioners, lotions, facial and shower cleansers and scrubs.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR ON THE LABEL AND AVOID: Ethylparaben, butylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben, isobutylparaben, isopropylparaben, other ingredients ending in –paraben – See more at: http://www.safecosmetics.org/?s=parabens#sthash.oahgaXuZ.dpuf

4. Implement paradigm shifts.
5. GO GREEN – Clean up your diet, products and environments.
6. Protect your breasts – get ride of hard wire, metal and plastics inserts in bra cup and sides of your bras. The natural flow of fluids, meridians (energy) and nerve impulses can be disrupted, causing compromised breast health.
7. Protect your liver by going natural and green. A healthy liver is crucial to normal body function and fighting diseases, including cancer.
8. Add natural strategies for ‘a healthier you’.
