Cleaning Products and Breast Cancer, Is There A Link?

October 05, 2011

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a time when people become more educated about the signs of breast cancer, its symptoms, and how to help prevent it.

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women and the second leading cause of cancer death in women in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, one of every eight women will learn they have invasive breast cancer in their lifetime.

A recent study published by the American Cancer Society found that synthetic chemicals have likely played a role in rising breast cancer rates around the world over the last half-century. 

Researchers identified 216 chemicals, most of them found in everyday products like pesticides, detergents, cosmetics, and dyes, that caused increased mammary tumors in animals.  Most of these substances “mimic” naturally occurring hormones once inside the body because the body doesn’t know the difference between its own real hormones and other introduced chemicals.

Take steps to change your exposure to harmful chemicals! Each one of us needs to protect our health and make our homes as safe from environmental toxins as possible!
