[Homework]   Bits of knowledge  "The Story of Cosmetics---part 1"   20110814

Can I tell you? I love my Pantene Pro-V, of the dozens of so personal care products I used everyday,  it's the one I can't live without it. Says it gives my dull hair the ultimate cool and shine. How does it do that? I was wondering that while I was * into my hair one day, so I read the ingredients right here ............ what is this stuff? I took this list to some scientists to know how to read it, Turns out my Pantene contains chemical linked to cancer. And lots of other products in my bathroom from sunscreen to lipstick, and even baby shampoo, also contains chemicals linked to cancer or other problems like learn disabilities, * and even damaged sperm.

Like most parents , I tried to keep my family's safe. But now I find out my bathroom is a minefield of toxics, what are we supposed to do? To find out the answers, we have to go back to one of the key features of our materials economy. Toxics in, toxics out. If at the factory, you pour toxic chemicals into the product, like baby shampoo, you are gonna wide with toxics baby shampoo. And toxics in workers, communities, and stuff, babys.

So let's take a closer look at this toxic average with sips in their lives every day in the bathroom. The average woman in the US uses about 12 personal care product daily, the average man is about 6. Each product is containing a dozen or more chemicals, less than 20 percent of chemicals in cosmetics has been in excess of safety by the industry safety panel, so we just don't know what they do to us when we use them. Would you fly on a airline that only inpects 20 percent of its planes?

Of course not all of these chemicals are dangerous, but we know the many are, some are * , that means they can cause cancer, others are * toxics and reproductive toxics, proven to mess up brain development and reproduction of animals, wait a minute, we are animails too, it is like a giant experiment, we are using all these mysterious chemicals, and just waiting to see what happens.
