What do cookware, deodorant, cosmetics, plastics and pesticides have in common?
They are all suspected of increasing the risk of breast cancer. Janet Gray, professor and chariman of the department of psychology at Vassar College, together with experts from the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, compiled a report on the environmental links to breast cancer.
According to Gray, a compilation of epidemiological studies, cell culture studies, and animal data show us that some of what women are exposed to every day may be increasing their risk of breast cancer.
Gray also says that the evidence is starting to mount indicating that exposure to low levels of many different chemicals does matter which can yield a result similar to a high-dose exposure to one chemical.
EWG has reported that 455 different chemicals were found in the blood and urine of 72 adults. Since these chemicals should not be in the body, are they doing harm to the body?
EWG reported that an average adult is exposed to 126 chemicals everyday in personal care products alone.
