Breast cancer causing culprits

Posted: Updated:

Every 13 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer. Many people think their risk of developing the disease is strictly down to genetics. But, you might want to aim the blame beneath your bathroom sink.

Researchers have become more like CSI detectives trying to identify new causes for breast cancer.

Suspect #1 is tainted mascara. It contains a metal that fuels breast cancer. Instead, go natural. Natural mascara that is. It offers the same beautifying effects as regular mascara minus the poison.

Suspect #2 is air fresheners. Most contain phthalates. This chemical helps strengthen the most hard to treat types of breast cancer. Instead, use vodka. It has some of the same components as air fresheners without the toxins.

Suspect #3 is toilet deodorizers. Most have a solvent which has been linked to early puberty in girls which is a huge breast cancer risk. To clean your toilet, use distilled white vinegar instead.

Going natural is an easy way to avoid some of these risks. Some other switches are using lavender instead of mothballs. Fresh or frozen foods over canned and hemp or cotton instead of vinyl.

Just a few tips that may help lower your breast cancer risks.
