    • The American Cancer Society states:
    At the turn of the last century, cancer rates were thought to be as low as 1 in 1000. What has happened?
      • 1 in 3 women will develop cancer in their lifetime
      • 1 in 2 men will develop cancer in their lifetime
      • 100 billion dollars is spent annually on treatment alone which has led some to believe that this money making machine may not be going away any time soon.
    • The Investigative Branch of Congress has isolated 125 known cancer causing agents in personal care products.
    • OSHA determined that 884 ingredients are considered toxic.
    • The European Union has already banned over 3,000 of the same ingredients commonly used in America.
    • It is estimated that personal care products aimed at children, are almost always the most harmful
    • Massive numbers of Phthalates and other endocrine disruptors are commonly found in personal care products.
    Cancer Facts
  • When they determined that tobacco caused cancer and birth defects, why wasn’t it banned?
    • In 1984 Congress enacted the Comprehensive Smoking Education Act of 1984 requiring four specific health warnings:
        • Smoking causes lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, and may complicate pregnancy
        • Quitting smoking now greatly reduces serious risks to your health
        • Smoking by pregnant women may result in fetal injury, premature birth, and low birth weight
        • Cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide
  • Warning Labels

  • University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute
    • One study shows that more chemicals are absorbed through the skin than through the mouth.
    • Carcinogens travel through umbilical cord from the placenta to the unborn child
  • SKIN is the largest organ – and it is NOT a BARRIER to most toxins…
    • 60% of all chemicals that are exposed to the skin are absorbed
    • The molecular weight of most ingredients in personal care products is small enough to penetrate the skin, and blood stream.
