Found in “artificial sweeteners” it has been known to cause headaches, depression, nausea, mental confusion, liver effects, kidney effects, visual disturbances, and cancer in humans.
Both active and passive smoke can increase risk of breast cancer. Tobacco smoke contains PAHs and hundreds of other chemicals, a few of which are known carcinogens and have caused mammary tumors in animals. Whatever “they” try to tell you, smoking is not cool! Who is “they” anyway?
RECOMBINANT BOVINE GROWTH HORMONE
Potential carcinogenic effects and raises levels of insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1) – a natural hormone found in humans and cows. Elevated levels of IGF-1 have been associated with increased risk of breast cancer.
Though banned in the U.S in 1972, DDT and its metabolite DDE are still found in the body fat of humans and animals, and in human breast milk and placenta. The triazine herbicides-atrazine, simazine and cyanazine-have all been shown to cause mammary cancer in rats. Through different mechanisms, three other pesticides- heptachlor, dieldrin and aldrin-have also been shown to increase estrogen levels and/or stimulate growth of breast cancer cells.
Pesticides and residential pesticides are associated with an increase in risk for breast cancer. Many pesticides and herbicides have been labeled as human or animal carcinogens. Many are also found in water supplies, samples of air and dust from homes.
Exposure comes from inhaling gasoline fumes, automobile exhaust and cigarette smoke. It is a carcinogen that was found to induce mammary tumors in mice. These animals have more mutations of genes that are responsible for suppressing the development of tumors.
POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS
A byproduct of combustion, from sources as varied grilled meats and cigarettes. PAHs are lipophilic and are stored in the fat tissue of the breast. PAHs have been shown to increase risk for breast cancer through a variety of mechanisms.
This toxic ingredient is often hidden in various food ingredients that are not required to be labeled as MSG. MSG excites organ receptors, which over-stimulate the organs and simply messes up your system.
Used in beauty and oral care products to create suds and foam, this harsh chemical can cause immune system damage and allergic reactions, as well as skin, eye and mouth irritation; its manufacturing results in the release of carcinogenic nitrosamines. The Journal of the American College of Toxicology determined that the ingredient has a “degenerative effect on cell membranes” and that even at low levels of concentration, skin penetration occurs.
Hidden in dyes such as FD&C Blue 1 and FD&C Green 3 are known carcinogens and putting them in mouthwash is dangerous to directly ingest.
