Dangerous Beauty - Cosmetics & Personal Care By Dr Peter Dingle
This book will change the way you look at cosmetics and personal care products for the better. Based on 10 years of research and over 1000 scientific references it puts the truth about cosmetics and personal care products at your fingertips.
Since its first publication as a 60 page pamphlet 20 years ago, science has shown an even clearer link between the toxic chemicals hidden in these products and chronic illness, especially breast cancer. While there may be only small amounts of these chemicals added to these products, we now know they are applied many times each day and directly to our skin.
Other chronic health conditions linked with these products include skin conditions, asthma and allergies, weight gain, diabetes and metabolic syndrome and other cancers such as skin and prostate cancers. Many of the toxic chemicals added to these products are quickly and efficiently absorbed through the skin and blood, and can play havoc with your hormones leading to an increase in hormone relate cancers, thyroid dysfunction and reproductive difficulties in both males and females.
By reading this book you will learn not just about the health problems associated with these products but which chemicals and products you can avoid and what to look for in a safer product. Making safer choices can go along way to improving your health.
There is now just too much science to ignore it.
