Good Motivation for Reading Labels to Avoid Absorbing Phthalates!

Even Low Levels Of Phthalate Exposure Can Increase Breast Cancer Cell Proliferation - Food for Breast Cancer

Interesting new research suggests that American standards for phthalate levels should be reconsidered. European standards are more stringent meaning there are lower levels of phthalates in products, hence less human exposure.

I avoid them as much as possible. There are so many body care products ... soaps, lotions, shampoos, etc ... that I avoid for this reason.

I hope it's making a difference and giving me even better odds of avoiding a breast cancer recurrence.

Also compelling is this report about the "brouhaha over endocrine disruptors". Mostly what one gets out of this is that science can not necessarily be trusted. One has to look at the corporate associations of individual scientists ... if you can find it out ... and then determine their level of bias.  Scientists who speak out and have no bias are the ones with credibility.  It's a sad state of affairs in scientific research when scientific reporting can't be trusted.
