Cancer and Cosmetics - The Chemical Connection

-by Jean Shaw© - All Rights reserved

Everyday we are exposed to numerous pollutants and you would have to be incredibly deluded not to make some association between modern society and ill health.

One of the most frightening things a person can hear is “You have cancer¨. Fortunately my recent scare proved benign but with 1 in 2 of all men and 1 in 3 of all women developing some form of cancer in their lifetime it¡¦s something many will experience. In 1901 it was 1 in 8000.

Cancer has become an epidemic with over 200 different types. Some will argue the increased incidence is due to the rise in life expectancy. Admittedly, we do live much longer now than 100 years ago but that alone does not explain the increase.

Cancer is not an infectious disease and appears to be related to advances in our civilised life-style. Most scientists agree at least 80% of all cancers are related to toxins and carcinogens and in isolated communities where synthetic and toxic chemicals are uncommon and pollution is rare, so is cancer.

The disease is caused when constant exposure overwhelms the body¡¦s natural immune system and we lose the ability to purge the toxins and chemicals. The culmulative effect causes healthy cells to mutate and eventually critical life processes are interrupted leading to death

Scientific research indicates that diet and life style play a major role in the prevention or onset of cancer. Chemicals are everywhere ¡V in the foods we eat, our water, the products we use and the air we breathe.

As a nation we are better fed than we have ever been and yet when it comes to vitamins and minerals we are incredibly malnourished. Our over farmed soils are depleted of natural nutrients and the wide spread use of pesticides,insecticides and fertilisers as well as airborne industrial pollutants makes our crops a hazard to health.

Life style choices such as smoking and sun worship are two common causes of cancer despite all the health warnings. Not all smokers develop cancer but their likelihood of getting it increases with the number of years they have been smoking.

Skin cancer is caused by excessive exposure to intense sunlight and the the sun¡¦s A,B and C rays. The effects of the latter are largely unknown, but the B rays cause sunburn on the surface of the skin. The A rays penetrate deeper and damage cells way below the surface. This can lead to wrinkles,a leathery texture and the potential to develop skin cancer.

You can protect yourself from sun damage by limiting exposure, staying covered as much as possible and using a high quality NON-TOXIC lotion that blocks out the full spectrum of solar rays.

However, many over the counter sun block creams and lotions contain known carcinogens and toxic chemicals which build up over time and predispose sun bathers to melanoma. Health and beauty do not always go together.

Your skin is the largest eliminatory organ in the body. It is a two-way membrane. Toxins are eliminated through the skin via perspiration and absorbed into the body's systemic circulation, through hair follicles and sebaceous glands. One square inch of skin contains 65 hairs and 100 sebaceous glands.

Impurities in the personal care products industry are not restricted however. It is stricter in Europe but in USA the FDA admit "Cosmetics and their ingredients are not required to undergo approval before they are sold. Manufacturers can use any ingredients, except for 10 prohibited substances, without government review".

This means if you put a chemical compound on your skin your body is likely to absorb it. You have a lot of hairs and sebaceous glands.

Despite the known dangers associated with many of the ingredients in cosmetics, skin care and personal care products, some manufacturers continue to use them. This is because they are inexpensive and can be used to create products with a look, feel and smell that can be marketed successfully at huge profits.

Health is not an issue.

A UK study discovered traces of methylparabens in breast cancer tumours. This synthetic chemical is commonly used in body creams, lotions, washes, anti-perspirants and deodorants.

The only way to ensure health and beauty really do go together is to seek 100% synthetic chemical free cosmetics and skin care products.

Fortunately there is a company which produce a range made from purely natural ingredients Certified Organic to Food Standards. These are so safe you could even eat them although it's not to be recommended.

Currently the only skin care products on the planet to have submitted to independent 3rd party certification, the active ingredients feed and nourish the skin with bio available nutrients.

With NO SYNTHETIC INGREDIENTS to cause health problems these Certified Organic Cosmetics and Skin Care prove that health and beauty can go together.

Now doesn't that give you peace of mind?
