A Breast Cancer THREAT in Your Home?!
Learn the most dangerous culprits
Breast cancer is on the rise — and is currently the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world.
Despite pushes for increased testing and pink ribbon rallies, 280,000 women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis every year, and 43,000 will die.
Those are grim numbers. And numbers you don’t want to be part of.
Fortunately, there’s something you can do about it.
Researchers have identified a common threat hiding in your house that can dramatically increase your risk of breast cancer.
Avoiding it can help prevent you from becoming a statistic.
This threat is found in everyday items like personal care products and the furniture you’re sitting on right now.
I’m talking about common chemicals used every day in thousands of products lining store shelves, sitting in your home, used as additives in your food, and slathered on your body.
A study published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives found that chemicals found in everyday products like these cause cells in your breast tissue to produce more hormones like estrogen and progesterone.
Both of these hormones are known to be connected to breast cancer. These are called hormone-positive cancers.
By increasing these hormones in your body, these common household chemicals are increasing your risk of breast cancer.
In fact, one study from about 20 years ago found that combination hormone replacement therapy was associated with an increased risk of breast cancer — while stopping the HRT led to a drop in breast cancer rates.
For this particular study, researchers combed through 2,000 chemicals that were part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s ToxCast program.
This program exposes living cells to chemicals and examines the biological changes they cause. The goal is to identify whether a chemical is harmful or not.
Because believe it or not, no one tests these chemicals before loading them into your personal care products, food, or water sources.
“Innocent until proven guilty” works in our justice system, but it shouldn’t apply to the chemicals loaded into your food.
But back to the study. The researchers identified 296 chemicals that increase estradiol (a form of estrogen) or progesterone — and 71 chemicals that increased both.
These were chemicals found in common items like hair dye, flame retardants on furniture, and pesticides.
A single exposure might not be cause for alarm.
But when you’re exposed day in and day out, in what you put in, on, and around your body, it adds up to toxic levels of exposure that have the potential to dramatically increase your risk of breast cancer.
The solution here is to get as many chemicals out of your house — and your life — as you can.
By taking control over what goes into your body, you’ll be taking control over your cancer risk.
