10 worst cancer-causing household products likely penetrating your skin daily

Personal care products

(NaturalNews) Our bodies constantly absorb from and communicate with our surroundings; they are not separate from the environment. The largest organ of the body, the skin, is a porous, absorbent network of glands that is always feeling and interacting with external elements.

We often take for granted the exocrine system of the human body, a network of external glands. However, the exocrine system is the first line of defense for our bodies to fight pathogens. One of the problems with pathogen-injection-ideology (vaccines) is that they bypass the exocrine system, retraining human exposure to pathogens, inevitably weakening the body's first response.

Our skins absorb the chemicals we apply

This absorbent exocrine system is also an entryway for chemicals to make their way into the bloodstream. With more than 10,000 man-made chemicals lurking in personal care products, our skin has become an experimental dumping ground. The average person is taking in more toxic chemicals from their environment than ever before – and 90 percent of these have never been tested for safety. The chemical compounds that have been studied cause birth defects, genetic mutation and cancer.

We often apply these cancer causing products directly to the skin, with little regard for how they affect our short- and long-term health. The good news is that healthy alternatives do exist.

The 10 common cosmetic products that are poisoning you

Soaps: Popular antibacterial soap ingredient triclosan is linked to cancer and thyroid problems, and has estrogenic and androgenic effects on human breast cancer cells. Additionally, surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate cause skin allergies. For chemical free versions, check out this line of pure hand and body soaps from the Health Ranger Store.

Deodorant: The petroleum byproducts and parabens used in deodorant adversely affect the endocrine system of the body. Even worse, the active ingredient in antiperspirants is a neurotoxin: aluminum. By blocking the pores, antiperspirants also restrict the natural processes of the sweat glands, trapping toxins in the body. Chemical-free deodorants work by neutralizing the odor at the source, killing the bacteria that causes it.

Lipstick: If it's so important to remove brain-damaging lead from fuel and paint, then why do we openly accept this toxic element on our lips and in our mouths? It has been proved that the average woman in an industrial society will slowly eat seven pounds of lipstick during her lifetime. How much lead, tar, formaldehyde and petroleum distillates is she poisoning her body with while she does so?

Mascara: These products are often loaded with aluminum, retinyl acetate, toxic polymers, petrolatum and fragrances that mess with one's hormones.

Toothpaste: The synthetic dyes, neurotoxic saccharin, fluorides and sodium lauryl sulfate that make up most commercial toothpastes only poison the body by suppressing glands, causing cancer in the cells. For better results, try the Health Ranger's ozone infused coconut oil pulling solution, or the new Toothsalt with Neem.

Skin lightening cremes: Often used to treat hyper pigmentation, these products are typically loaded with mercury, which is toxic to cells.

Sunscreen: Cheap, chemical-based sunscreens are a cocktail of hormone-disrupting chemicals that make their way into the bloodstream and damage the metabolism and the reproductive system. The Environmental Working Group warns about the health problems associated with oxybenzone, octinoxate, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene and avobenzone. For an alternative that works, switch to a zinc-based, botanical SPF formula.

Acne treatments: Benzoyl peroxide, commonly found in acne treatments, is linked to skin tumor activity, as observed in this important study.

Hairspray: These products actually cause lung damage. First symptoms of hairspray poisoning include blurred vision, breathing difficulty, burning eyes and pain in the throat.The formaldehyde, propylene glycol and phthalate content, combined with shellac and denatured alcohol, are a quick recipe for cancer.

Moisturizers: The chemicals formulated into moisturizers are often derived from coal tar, and contain arsenic. Once absorbed, these distort normal cellular functions, and have been linked to skin cancer. For better results and safety, try a plant based moisturizer formula or use coconut oil instead.
