Top ten ways humanity is being murdered in the name of 'evidence-based science' (#9 Cosmetics)

(NaturalNews) Non-organic cosmetics and personal care products are loaded with "scientifically-formulated" chemical ingredients that cause cancer, liver damage, kidney damage, neurological disorders and even skin diseases.

A typical "skin lotion" or cosmetic base is made with a sickening cocktail of incredibly toxic chemicals purchased in bulk from chemical factories. Many are shockingly high in lead, and most cosmetic manufacturers actually hide their ingredients from consumers in order to conceal the truth of what's in their overpriced products.

The FDA, for its part, openly allows cancer-causing chemicals and heavy metals to be used in cosmetics. After all, people who are harmed by cosmetics will become profitable patients for the cancer industry, right?

Cosmetics and personal care products are routinely formulated with dangerous, sometimes deadly chemicals such as parabens, triclosan, ethoxylates, diethanolamine, and phthalates. A typical perfume fragrance product contains 20+ cancer-causing chemicals, and Dr. Samuel Epstein, Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition and author of Toxic Beauty, has openly warned about cancer chemicals in name-brand products like Avon.

Remember, all these cancer-causing chemicals are added to cosmetics and personal care products through the application "evidence-based science." The problem, as usual, is that the evidence is selective and distorted in order to serve the profit interests of the corporations. The "scientists" who do all this are on the payroll of the very corporations whose products are killing people for profit.

The Environmental Working Group has an excellent online database of cosmetic ingredients where you can search more than 81,000 products for possible worrisome ingredients. Natural News has been a longtime supporter of the EWG and its efforts to blow the whistle on dangerous chemical ingredients that are "scientifically" formulated into personal care products.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose descendents include Africans and American Indians. He self-identifies as being of American Indian heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
