It is important to not just read food labels, but also personal care product labels?
Personal care products like shampoos, lotions, deodorants, soaps, and cosmetics can contain a large number of toxic ingredients, including carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.
Carcinogens are items that can cause cancer. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that interfere with hormone systems- increasing production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormone signaling; telling cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones; accumulating in organs that produce hormones.
LIST: Avoid Parabens, synthetic colors, fragrance, Phthalates, Triclosan, Sodium Lauryl/laureth Sulfate, Formaldehyde, and Toluene .
