Renowned skin care expert Dr. Trevor Cates lists 20 of the most toxic chemicals found in personal care products. “What we put on our skin should be as clean as what we eat. But for most people, it’s not. Even in tiny amounts, many of the chemicals commonly found in our cosmetics can have a tremendous health and hormonal impact, and we are only beginning to understand the consequences,” Dr. Cates writes in DailyMail.co.uk.

  1. Fragrances – According to Dr. Cates, fragrance mixtures may contain hundreds of individual chemicals that may trigger allergies and disrupt certain hormones. He suggests avoiding fragrances unless in their natural form such as pure essential oils.
  2. Formaldehyde – Nearly one in five personal care products contain this chemical. This toxic chemical can be found in hair care products, adhesives and nail products. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), formaldehyde is a carcinogenic chemical associated with the onset of various forms of cancer.
  3. Ethanolamines – According to the skin care expert, impurities in these chemicals may trigger the onset of certain types of cancer.
  4. Mineral oils – These oils, along with petroleum, are key ingredients in cosmetic products such as foundation, moisturizers and cleansers. However, these chemicals contain dioxane. According to Dr. Cates, dioxane is found to be carcinogenic in various animal studies.
  5. Oxybenzone – This harmful chemical is commonly found in lip balms, sunscreens, and other products that contain SPF. Oxybenzone is found to be easily absorbed in the bloodstream, and is associated with the onset of early puberty in girls.
  6. Parabens – Parabens are commonly used preservatives in various beauty products. The chemical is linked to breast cancer cell growth in women and lower testosterone levels and sperm count in men.
  7. Hydroquinone – According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), hydroquinones may cause ochronosis, a skin disease characterized by disfiguring and irreversible lesions on the skin. Hydroquinones are also found to be carcinogenic.
  8. Coal tar – Coal tar is a known carcinogenic. The chemical can be found in dandruff shampoos, creams, soap, and ointments.
  9. Toluene – According to Dr. Cates, toluene is a potent neurotoxic chemical and may trigger impaired breathing and nausea. Toluene is commonly found in nail care products.
  10. Butylated hydroxyanisole – BHA is a waxy compound that is used in various cosmetics and personal care products such as eye shadow and lipstick. The U.S. National Toxicology Program has identified BHA as a potential carcinogen, while the European Union (EU) classified the chemical as an endocrine disruptor.
  11. Triclosan and triclocarban – These chemicals are commonly used as antibacterial agents in personal care products. Both chemicals are known endocrine disruptors.
  12. Mica, silica, talc, and nanoparticled titanium dioxide – According to Dr. Cates, these minute particles may lead to lung disease when they accumulated in the body over time.
  13. Heavy metalsHeavy metals — such as mercury, lead, arsenic and aluminum —  can cause brain and nervous system impairment and hormone disruption. These heavy metals are also known carcinogens.
  14. Carbon black – Carbon black is a commonly used pigment in make up and nail polish. This chemical is known to cause cancers.
  15. P-phenylenediamine – This chemical is commonly found in hair dyes. Exposure to this chemical may lead to organ toxicity, adverse skin reactions, and cancer.

Other toxic chemicals commonly found in personal care products include resorcinol, methylisothiazolinone and teflon as well as phenoxyethanol and acrylamide.

“The personal care products industry is inundated with extremely toxic, cancer-causing chemicals,” explains the Health Ranger, founder of the Health Ranger Store which formulates and retails hundreds of non-toxic personal care products. “The average consumer poisons themselves with over 300 synthetic chemicals before they even leave the house each morning, and these chemicals are deliberately added to personal care products by manufacturers that care more about profit than consumer safety,” he adds.

Personal care products — such as cosmetics, body washes and hair and skin care products — have been subject to scrutiny for years due to potentially hazardous chemicals that most of them contain. These chemicals, when in contact with human body, may cause adverse health effects. In fact, a study by Herb Research Foundation reveals that the skin may absorb up to 60 percent of toxic chemicals found in personal care products.

8 Lifestyle Practices That Can Help Prevent Cancer

The first question people ask themselves when they find out they have cancer is, “How did I get it?” Yet 99 percent of those people will never figure out the answer to that question. Why? Because cancer is caused mainly by the cumulative consumption of toxins over time. If you keep consuming toxins, your oncologist can’t save you.

No knife can cut out the toxins in your blood. No amount of chemotherapy or radiation can eradicate the carcinogens invading your blood supply. In fact, chemotherapy adds to it; however, the good news is that it’s never too late to cut off cancer’s fuel by ending your chemical intake – and that includes what you eat, drink, breathe in, inject, and put on your body. Medical doctors know NOTHING about this. They recommend the “best” surgeons, the most “technologically advanced” oncology institutions, and relentless testing, including CAT scans, MRIs, mammograms, biopsies, and so on, and so on.

Sure, it’s overwhelming. It should be. You should realize that all the testing and surgery in the world cannot get the poison out of the “pool” if you just go home and keep pouring it in after it’s “removed” or treated with more chemicals. Use common sense. There’s no one step cure. There’s no magic wand a surgeon can wave to fix cancer. No dermatologist in the world can just cut off a cancer spot and cure you for life. No organ can be removed that ends cancer if you eat, drink, breathe and inject toxins day after day after day. Cancer curing lives and breathes in cancer prevention. Don’t eat cancer and it won’t eat you. Apply broad sweeping strokes to paint your new healthy life picture. These are not one stop shopping cures – rather they are lifestyle changes that almost ensure you won’t get what every third American gets in their life – and that’s the dreaded “c” word.

The following 8 lifestyle practices are simple, practical, and can prevent cancer, so do them!

1. Try to always avoid eating GMOs and processed foods whenever possible. Most “American” conventional food contains artificial ingredients, pesticides, preservatives, additives, bleach, nitrates, toxic gluten, and hydrogenated oils that cause cancer.

2. Never put personal care products on your skin, hair, lips, or nails that contain chemicals. Look for organic products that tell you specifically, on the label, they DO NOT contain parabens, coal tar dyes, talc, PEGs (polyethylene glycols), petroleum-based chemicals, phthalates, or Triclosan.

3. Never burn or spray products in your home that contain chemicals, like cheap candles and most popular air fresheners. Buy organic candles and make your own air freshener with filtered water, rubbing alcohol (as carrier), and natural essential oils for wonderful fragrances. It’s an easy formula! Now go buy a spray bottle.

4. Avoid all vaccines and flu shots, as most contain mercury, aluminum, MSG, and formaldehyde. This is no joke. Just check the CDC website. It’s scary and getting worse. So many hoax diseases out there and you can build natural immunity by eating organic food and taking herbal tinctures. Check out turmeric, oil of oregano, and garlic!

5. Never drink water from the tap, as it usually contains sodium fluoride and other people’s medications. Chemicals like bleach cause bladder cancer and pancreatic cancer. Buy a good water filter and never look back!

6. Avoid almost all white foods because they are bleached: including white bread, white pasta, white flour, white sugar, white rice except basmati)

7. Avoid artificial sweeteners – mainly aspartame, sucralose (Splenda), and sorbitol. These are known to cause irritable bowels and migraines, which are just first signs your body is rejecting them. Later comes cancer. Quit them all NOW!

8. If possible, avoid prescription medications, as most are chemical based and turn the blood acidic, enabling cancer to develop and spread easily. Big surprise, huh? Nearly every medication out there simply relieves the symptoms of toxicity temporarily. Don’t fall for the tricks MDs shell out.

The 6 Most Popular Toxins Americans Coat Their Bodies With & Then Wonder Why They’re Suffering From Inflammation, Rashes, Skin Allergies & Cancer

Millions of health enthusiasts around the world crosscheck everything they eat and drink, along with all of their medicines, for toxic ingredients that can cause a whole host of health problems. This is nothing new. However, if you were to go into their homes, into their bathrooms, and start opening drawers and cabinets, and flipping personal care products over to read the ingredients, you would find the majority of those products contain the very same toxins these folks are doing their very best to avoid consuming.

The irony is that the skin is the largest organ, and it does “consume” the toxins applied to it, and this may be more dangerous than the carcinogens they avoid eating and drinking. Here’s why: When you eat or drink foods and medicines that contain toxins, those toxins are often found in minuscule amounts, otherwise you’d get sick right away and know what’s happening. However, the products we put on our hair, nails, face, arms, legs, feet and even private parts are completely unregulated, because neither the FDA, the CDC, the EPA, the USDA, nor any other agency inspects or has limits for personal care products. Plus, when it comes to lotions, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, antiperspirants, powders, cosmetics and so forth, people simply “cake” them on, coating large surface areas with unlimited toxins that find their way into the bloodstream, the digestive tract and even the lungs and cleansing organs.

Yes, it’s overwhelming. It’s overwhelming to the brain to think of all of this. It’s overwhelming to your cleansing organs too. It’s overwhelming to the natural detoxification process that the body wants to engage, but can’t, because it’s coated with these toxins. It’s like wondering why you can’t breathe properly while you’ve got a blanket over your head all day. Hey, quit sweeping all the “dust” under the rug and then wondering why you’re having allergy attacks. Your skin is your largest organ. It needs to sweat properly. It needs sunlight to create vitamin D. It needs to breathe! Remember, if most of the ingredients in a personal care product aren’t edible, then it shouldn’t be coating your body.

Here are the six most popular toxins Americans coat their bodies with, and then wonder why they’re suffering from inflammation, rashes, skin allergies and cancer:

1. Petroleum is an industrial chemical (a liquid mixture of hydrocarbons) commonly found in Vaseline, baby oils, baby lotions, suntan lotions and sunblock lotions, and is toxic to the human body – locking in toxins, preventing perspiration, and leading to inflammation, chronic itching and cancer.

2. Talc is toxic and is commonly found in baby powders, popular body powders and foot powders.

3. Lead, a neurotoxin, is commonly found in lipstick.

4. Parabens are chemicals that penetrate the skin and are common in cosmetics/makeup – they mimic hormones and are endocrine disruptors that cause allergic reactions.

5. Phthalates are found in moisturizers, perfumes, nail polishes, soaps and hairsprays, and can increase the risk of diabetes in women and lower sperm production in men.

6. Aluminum is commonly found in deodorants and antiperspirants, and is known to cause cancer tumors in the breasts in the quadrant closest to the armpit (not a coincidence).

Start protecting the ‘walls’ of your ‘temple’

There are over 70,000 chemicals approved by the FDA for consumption. Many of them have toxic effects on the body. When you unknowingly consume poisons by applying them to your body, you feed chronic inflammation, your immune system weakens, and you invite cancer to attack. You don’t need a PhD to figure it out, and you don’t need to be a dermatologist. Go home, look through every single personal care product you own, and crosscheck it for chemicals. Then, throw it all out, and buy new organic or truly natural products.

From toxic air fresheners to toxic candles, people fill their homes with poisons on a daily basis and wonder what’s wrong with their health. These toxins accumulate on the body too. People put toxic flea medicines and poisonous medicines on their pets, and wonder why the pet dies after five to seven years from leukemia. People spray Roundup, the most toxic herbicide on the planet, all over their yards and around their gardens, and then it gets on their pets’ paws, on their own hands, and on the food they’ll be eating, and then they wonder how they all get cancer. People coat themselves with toxic bug repellent and can’t seem to figure out how they keep getting skin cancer spots developing. Hmm, don’t you wonder? People lather themselves up all summer with toxic suntan lotions and carcinogenic sunblock lotions, and lock in poisons while blocking out the healing sunshine. Oops.

Stop wondering what’s going wrong and fix it! Your body is the temple of your soul. Protect it.
