    Thanks for this information, I’m a bit surprised though that parabens are not mentioned since scientific research has found a link to breast cancer! These parabens are in almost every cosmetic product and in some processed food as well! Especially in deodorants, shampoos, etc. and the sensible thing to do is buy ‘paraben free’ products (must be mentioned on the product)!

      Thanks Wilma! I’m also concerned about parabens and have written quite a bit about them on Mommy Greenest. For this story, I was looking specifically into those toxic chemicals that were identified by the Harvard study. You can read more about the study here: http://www.mommygreenest.com/10-ways-to-nix-breast-cancer-chemicals-now/ Thanks for commenting!

        Thanks for replying Rachel! It was my first time on your website so not aware of previous studies/comments.
        Good to see that this kind of information is publicised more. There are so many (marketing) lies coming from the corporate world and ignorant and innocent people suffering from it as a result, whether it is here in Europe or in the US. Keep up the good work!
