[Homework]【整理】2011-08-14&08-20 化妆品的故事 (1/3)

Can I tell you I love my painting prov of the dozen or so personal care products I use everyday. It's the one I can't live without. Since it gives my dull hair that ultimate cool shine. How does it do that? I was wondering that while I was lathering it into my hair one day. So I read ingredients right here. Sodium laureth sulfate, tetrasodium EDTA, methylisothiazolinone. What is this stuff? So I took this list to some scientists who know how to read it, turns out my painting contains chemical linked to cancer. And lots of other products in my bathroom from sunscreen to lipstick, and even baby shampoo also contain chemicals linked to cancer or other problems. Like learning disabilities, asthma and even damaged sperm.Like most parents, I tried to keep my family safe. But now I found my bathroom is a minefield of toxins, what we supposed to do? To find out the answer, we have to go back to one of the key features of our materials economy. Toxics in, Toxics out. If as the factory, you put toxic chemical into a product like baby shampoo, you are going to wind up with toxic baby shampoo and toxics in workers, communities and star babies. So let's take a closer look at this toxic outrage works where it sleeps into our lives everyday in the bathroom. The average woman in the US uses about 12 personal care products daily. The average man about 6. Each product contain a dozen or more chemicals, less than 20 percent of chemicals in cosmetics have been accessed for safety by the industry safety panel. So we just don't know what the do to us when we use them. Would you fly on an airline that only inspects 20% of its planes. Of course, not all of these chemicals are dangerous, but we know that many are. Some are carcinogens, that means they can cause cancer. Others are neural toxins and reproductive toxins, proven to mess of brain development, and reproduction in animals. Wait a minute, we are animals too! It's like a giant experiment when you're using all these mystery chemicals and just waiting to see what happens.
