Beauty Products contain cancer causers
Potentially Questionable and Controversial and known Cancer Causing Chemicals in Personal Care and Beauty Products.  Almost all companies that sell personal care products have potentially controversial and questionable chemicals in them, and say it isn't so (a lie).

Back in 1938, when the U.S. Government formed the FDA, it was believed that our skin was the perfect barrier to protect us from potentially harmful chemicals. So the chemicals then in use were "Grandfathered in" as safe and legal to use in products that were to be in contact with human skin. Now we know our skin is much more of a dry sponge and we absorb most things that come in contact with our skin. ( Prove this to yourself. Remove one shoe and sock, put a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder in the shoe, put the shoe back on, {no sock for this test}. Ten minutes later kiss your spouse. They will tell you about your breath.)

The Industrial World USES Propylene Glycol (PG) and Polyethylene glycol (PEG): Industrial Antifreeze, Brake/Hydraulic Fluid, Paint, Airplane De-Icer. These have chemicals have been found to cause adverse health effects : contact dermatitis, kidney damage and liver abnormalities; Inhibit skin cell growth in human tests; Damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin and surface damage to the skin.

Sodium Lauryl (or Laureth) Sulfate: Engine Degreaser, Garage/Concrete Floor Cleaner, Car Wash Soap; Surrounds hair follicle in shampoo to keep it from growing, causes hair to fall out; keeps children's eyes from developing properly, causes cataracts in older people; In Toothpaste: Weakens enamel on teeth to cause cavities: SLS is very abrasive and may burn the skin, mouth, Canker sores, or scalp.

Cocoamide, Lauramide DEA (diethanolamine): is readily absorbed through the skin, is a potentially cancer causing ingredient found in many mainstream cosmetics and toiletries. Reacts with nitrates in cosmetics to form another potential carcinogen/DEA. Your blood cells immediately take it through your skin to the body's organs we need: Liver, Kidneys, Heart, etc

 
The journal of the American College of Toxicology reports that (SLS) is easily absorbed into your skin and builds up in your heart, liver, lungs, and brain... even if you wash it right off after using it!

The Medical College of Georgia has done testing showing that SLS forms dangerous levels of cancer-causing nitrosamines when combined with several other common ingredients found in many personal care products.

1997 - September, the Boston Globe quoted Senators Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch as saying That "the Government Accounting Office has identified 125 cosmetic ingredients suspected of causing cancer. Other ingredients may cause birth defects."

Research to Prevent Blindness reports that sodium lauryl sulfate builds up in the eye tissue and may be a cause of eyesight problems in many children? You will find sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate in most shampoos.

Why do toothpastes have a warning such as:
WARNING LABELS: Keep out of reach of children under 6 years of age. Do not swallow. ... In case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a poison control center IMMEDIATELY.

So today, without follow up research to prove their safety, potentially controversial and questionable chemicals are in everyday personal care products.

Have you ever read the labels on your deodorant, shaving cream, children's bubble bath, mouthwash and and seen the "warning label" on your toothpaste BOX???

Product warning labels are shown for a reason. It is a fact that many manufacturers use certain questionable and controversial chemical ingredients mainly because they're CHEAP, and give the ILLUSION of working properly But more importantly for the manufacturer, they cost very little to fill the bottle, so it is a bigger profit margin for them. But residues of more than 400 toxic chemicals have been found in human blood and fat tissue.

From 1950 to 1989, the overall incidence of cancer in the U.S. has risen by 54% (smoking related incidences account for less than 25% of the increase). Childhood cancer is up 50%. Today, cancer is the leading cause of death for women aged 35-74. Some researchers believe that many types of cancer starts 20 years before they are diagnosed. Baby Boomers have three times the cancer rate of their grandparents.

In 1901 cancer was considered a rare disease. Statistics show that 1 out of 8000 persons had cancer. Today, according to the American Cancer Society, 1 out of 3 people have cancer. By the year 2000, 1 out of 2 persons will be touched by cancer. (It is a multi, multi-billion dollar business at cancer hospitals. We are robbed of health and wealth)

How much cancer, and other illnesses, are linked to chemical exposure? Sometimes it depends on which "expert" you listen to but even OSHA admits there are at least 880 variations of compounds of chemicals ( that are harmful to your nervous system) and are used in personal care products, cosmetics, and perfumes.

This is just the beginning of the list of chemicals to avoid in products you use daily:

1. Cocoamide DEA, diethanolamine, TEA, triethanolamine, MEA
2.  Propylene glycol, propylene oxide, polyethylene glycol
3. Sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate
4.  Sodium Fluoride
5.  Mineral Oil , Petrolatum and Coal Tar

There is a proven significant trend towards the incidence of ALZHEIMER'S disease among long term users of ALUMINUM based anti-perspirants? They are even linking ALUMINUM to breast cancer, which is the leading killer for women under 40. But almost all store brands use aluminum. NEWAYS deodorant does not. Tests from scientists and doctors show that ALUMINUM goes right to the brain. Parkinson's disease also has been linked to ALUMINUM in the brain.

DID YOU KNOW... That three of the most popular shaving creams combine two chemicals which together form a likely cancer causing agent? They're even listed right on the label. But how many people would know this? The manufacturers are betting "not many"... NEWAYS Products DO NOT have these ingredients. But another product that does is a popular KID'S SHAMPOO!

Sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate (SLS) and propylene glycol are two of the most common ingredients found in many personal care products. Others: Petrolatum,  synthetic Glycerine, Collagen, Kaoloin or Bentonite & Mineral Oil. Sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate is a top favorite ingredient listing in kids shampoo & toothpaste.

DID YOU KNOW... Propylene Glycol has over 14 legal synonyms? WHY???
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate has over 90 Legal synonyms? WHY???

NEWAYS products do NOT contain potentially controversial and questionable chemicals in their shampoos or other products!


Your skin is the largest breathing organ of your body, and many chemicals can be absorbed through it. Nicotine and medicine skin patches wouldn't work if the skin couldn't absorb. Yet almost ALL shampoos contain SLS.

DID YOU KNOW... That propylene glycol,(industrial antifreeze) (derivative of propylene oxide) is listed on the FDA government website as a known carcinogen?

This ingredient is used in many facial moisturizer and hand/body lotions, has been found to cause kidney damage and liver abnormalities in scientific and animal testing? Propylene glycol may damage cell membranes causing rashes, dry skin, and surface damage to the skin. Sierra brand anti-freeze for your car is mostly propylene glycol (read it right off the label). Most auto anti-freezes will switch to propylene glycol (from ethylene glycol) in the near future. Is this the best thing to be putting on your skin? At NEWAYS we don't think so, so we don't use it! Ethylene glycol is first ingredient listed on the antifreeze label.

DID YOU KNOW... That KIDS' bubble baths have warning labels on them? Why? It is because the sodium lauryl sulfate in them eats away at the mucous lining of the skin and causes urinary tract infections. Bad for little girls of any age. NEWAYS has a much better product that is safe to use, with NO WARNING LABELS or animal testing needed!!

If you are still not convinced, just read the WARNING LABELS on your child's bubble bath... Bad for little girls of any age!! A world-renowned expert, toxicologist, Chairman of the nationwide Cancer Prevention Coalition, and co-author of Safe Shopper's Bible, Dr.. Samuel Epstein has said that, "Lifelong use of these products... clearly poses major avoidable cancer risks to the great majority of the U.S. consumers, particularly in infants and young children."


DID YOU KNOW... That many children are rushed to the emergency rooms each year due to alcohol poisoning from drinking mouthwash? One of the most popular brands of mouthwash is 26.9% alcohol. In adults, high alcohol mouthwash increases the risk of oral cancer by as much as 60%.

NEWAYS Mouthwash (Eliminator) uses no alcohol and it works great, with over 30 uses such as a bacteria killer, foot odor, Poison Ivy and Poison Oak, etc.

DID YOU KNOW... Recently a thousand people had to be evacuated from their homes, By order of OSHA because a factory near there homes had a one gallon spill of a hazadorous chemical. This ingredient is used in hair shampoo!!!!

All these questionable and controversial chemicals found in our everyday products, combined with the pollution of our air and water, has created an environment that is no longer "user friendly."

Fluorescent Light Bulbs: New Cancer Risk
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) mandates the phase-out of incandescent light bulbs, and favors energy-efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs.

Sounds good—until you realize that CFL bulbs contain mercury, and mercury poses a significant cancer risk. A new study shows that CFL bulbs also emit high levels of ultraviolet radiation—specifically, UVC and UVA rays. In fact, the UV rays are so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells. Experts say the radiation could initiate cell death and cause skin cancer in its deadliest form—melanoma.

In every bulb the researchers tested, they found that the protective phosphor coating of the light bulb was cracked, allowing dangerous UV rays to escape. Healthy skin cells exposed to CFLs showed a decrease in their proliferation rate, an increase in the production of reactive oxygen species, and a decrease in ability to contract collagen.

On top of that, it’s a sad fact of life that light bulbs break. How do you clean up the mercury after a bulb breaks? The Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation measured the release of mercury vapor from broken bulbs. They recorded concentrations near the bulb of up to 800 mcg/m3, which is eight times the average eight-hour occupational exposure limit allowed by OSHA (100 mcg/m3).

Even more shocking, the recommended limit for children is a mere 0.2 mcg/m3. A child exposed to a broken CFL bulb will receive eight thousand times the recommended amount of mercury vapor!

A broken 13-watt CFL bulb will only have released 30% of its mercury a full four days after it is broken—the remainder is trapped in the bulb. So picking up shards with your bare hands or leaving them in poorly ventilated room while you ponder the best disposal method is a particularly bad idea.

Unfortunately, there is no good solution for cleaning up after a broken CFL bulb. Researchers at Brown are testing a cloth made with a nanomaterial (nanoselim) that can capture mercury emissions for proper disposal. But until this is commercially available, it is best to avoid CFLs altogether. And how will we dispose of the clean-up cloth?

General Electric claims that CFLs don’t produce a hazardous amount of UV radiation, and that UV is far less than the amount produced by natural daylight. The truth is that all compact fluorescent lights bulbs contain mercury vapor. Once that vapor is hit with an electric current, it emits a great number of UV rays. UV rays are theoretically absorbed by the layer of phosphor that coats the bulbs—but the signature twisted spiral shape makes these bulbs more prone to cracks in the phosphor, which dramatically increases UV/mercury exposure. Researchers found cracks in almost all bulbs purchased from retail stores, indicating that it is a standard design flaw of these bulbs.

CFL bulbs contains other cancer-causing chemicals as well. German scientists found that several different chemicals and toxins were released when CFLs are turned on, including naphthalene (which has been linked to cancer in animals) and styrene (which has been declared “a likely human carcinogen”). A sort of electrical smog develops around these lamps, which could be dangerous.

CFLs are supposedly better for the environment, but according to the Association of Lighting and Mercury Recyclers, 98% of CFLs end up in landfills—creating a mercury build-up that can escape into our soil and waterways.

We’re happy that the federal government is tackling environmental problems, but this “solution” is especially short-sighted—and not unlike the national smart meter push, is creating serious health risks in the long-term.

Worse, soon consumers won’t have the option to buy incandescent lights—they simply won’t be available. The government hasn’t placed an outright ban on incandescent light bulbs. Section 321 of EISA mandates higher efficiency standards for general service lamps. But these standards are high enough that most commonly used incandescent bulbs just won’t meet the new requirements. EISA will effectively eliminate 40-, 60-, 75-, and 100-watt incandescent bulbs. The new efficiency levels will be in full force by 2014.

Even the United Nations has acknowledged the problem of mercury in CFL bulbs, and has instated a ban on certain types of CFLs. We won’t know the full implications of that ban until the treaty is made publically available.

The good news is that CFLs are not the only energy-efficient bulbs out there. There are also light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which are mercury-free—though LEDs emit blue light, which can be disruptive to sleep, as we noted in our 2012 article.

Colgate ingredient Linked to Cancer
The chemical triclosan has been linked to cancer-cell growth and disrupted development in animals. Regulators are reviewing whether it’s safe to put in soap, cutting boards and toys. Consumer companies are phasing it out. Minnesota voted in May to ban it in many products.

At the same time, millions of Americans are putting it in their mouths every day, by way of a top-selling toothpaste that uses the antibacterial chemical to head off gum disease -- Colgate-Palmolive Co.’s Total.

Total is safe, Colgate says, citing the rigorous Food and Drug Administration process that led to the toothpaste’s 1997 approval as an over-the-counter drug. A closer look at that application process, however, reveals that some of the scientific findings Colgate put forward to establish triclosan’s safety in toothpaste weren’t black and white -- and weren’t, until this year, available to the public.

Colgate’s Total application included 35 pages summarizing toxicology studies on triclosan, which the FDA withheld from view. The agency released the pages earlier this year in response to a lawsuit over a Freedom of Information Act request. Later, following inquiries from Bloomberg News, the FDA put the pages on its website.

The pages show how even with one of the U.S.’s most stringent regulatory processes -- FDA approval of a new drug -- the government relies on company-backed science to show products are safe and effective. The recently released pages, taken alongside new research on triclosan, raise questions about whether the agency did appropriate due diligence in approving Total 17 years ago, and whether its approval should stand in light of new research, said three scientists who reviewed the pages at Bloomberg News’s request.

Among the pages were studies showing fetal bone malformations in mice and rats. Colgate said the findings weren’t relevant. Viewed through the prism of today’s science, such malformations look more like a signal that triclosan is disrupting the endocrine system and throwing off hormonal functioning, according to the three scientists.

Colgate’s application materials also show that the FDA asked questions about the thoroughness of cancer studies, which are partly addressed in recently released documents.

Some questions about triclosan’s potential impact on people are, by nature, unanswerable. Humans are exposed to dozens of chemicals that may interact in the body, making it almost impossible to link one substance to one disease, said Thomas Zoeller, a biology professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, who specializes in how chemicals affect the endocrine system.
