Buying Cancer: The Truth Behind Our Beauty Products
As consumers we have the right to know where our products come from, how they are made and whether the benefit of owning that product is greater or not. And because we buy products with our hard earned money, we are entitled to get the best quality possible. However, industries have no moral obligations towards consumers and this is a fact they readily exploit. The cosmetic industry is no different, and in this book you will learn first hand how threatening the chemicals they use in our products are.
You will learn how the shampoo & conditioner you use, the lip gloss you can't leave home without, the lotion you apply on your body to help you moisturise your skin to the toothpaste you use every day are all contaminated with toxic ingredients that were originally designed to only clean industrial equipment or grease your gearbox. The health impact of these ingredients that are so beautifully packaged is truly appalling. The mascara, deodorant, face mask, nail polish, lip balm, concealer and shower gel you use mostly have chemicals that have been linked to cancer and birth defects, and have been classified to harm the female reproductive system.
So as consumers we have to educate ourselves to protect our health and well being. It is not enough for this multi-billion dollar industry to take our money, in the process, they also want to make most of us sick, and where possible, kill the rest. Women are powerful consumers and if they recognize the deadly (but subtle) weapons this industry uses against them, they will be able to a) protect their health and b) demand healthy and regulated products.
This book will show you the secrets this industry pays a lot of money to conceal, and the depth of this serious and urgent problem.
