The Breast Views Blog: Cosmetics, Chemicals, and Your Health

The Environmental Working Group have been busy little Valentines.

I know this will seem hard to believe but look what they've discovered......

"A major loophole in federal law allows fragrance manufacturers to hide potentially hazardous chemicals in product scents, including substances linked to allergies, birth defects, and even cancer. Because they won't tell you what's in the scents they sell you, we combed through thousands of Valentine's Day gift ideas to bring you products that not only smell great, but that are also free of hidden, potentially hazardous fragrances."

Thank you EWG. Click on the link below for more details.

Sue,

I think its very good that you have so much on Breast Cancer.

I am writing, because I have a Rare cancer, and "Coincidentally" an ex-roomate was diagnosed with the same rare cancer. We later found out that our Cancer, Sarcoma was caused by PCBs and Dioxin - and sure enough later we found we lived over a Landfill with - guess what - PCB, OrganoChlorines and Dioxin like materials.

It turns out that breast cancer is caused by some of the same Chemicals.

I would like to get involved with helping pass laws that require less use of chemicals and regulation to limit "residual" exposures.

I have a new website that I am trying to get off the ground: sbcaul.googlepages.com.

If you have a chance, please look at the website and article on enviromental cancers.

Thanks and best regards to you.
