Cosmetics toxicity exposure- Health risks assessment

"Currently, there are more than 84,000 ingredients used in cosmetics. More than 12,000 of them are industrial chemicals used as cosmetic ingredients."

There is still one more route where toxins can enter our bodies. It is not from food, water, air, or radiation. It is through our skin.

All cosmetics that we put on our skin penetrate it, get absorbed into our tissue and blood system, and then enter our bodies directly. It is worse than eating it because in our digestive system there are acids in the stomach and billions of protective probiotic microorganisms that can help us to some extent.

Putting something to our skin is the same as inhaling it or shooting it directly into our veins. Actually, cosmetics toxicity exposure is worse.

If you do not want to eat it, then don’t put it on your skin.

If you are a woman and you need to dye your hair, then first put some of that ammonia dye into your mouth because that is precisely what you do when you put the dye on your head.

Many studies had been done on the possible link between hair dye use and cancer for many years, especially link with bladder cancer, leukemia, and lymphomas.  Early hair dyes contained some aromatic amines, which were found in the late 1970s to cause cancer in lab animals. Today IARC has established that workplace exposure as a hairdresser or barber is probably carcinogenic to humans.

What we know is toxic and also found in most of the hair dyes is:

  • Formaldehyde (cancer and fetal damage in utero)
  •  p-Phenylenediamine (kidney problems and bladder cancer, PPD, in short, is  applied as a dye for dark tone colors and is manufactured from coal tar)
  • DMDM hydantoin (immunotoxin, banned for use in Japanese cosmetics)
  • Ammonia (respiratory problems and asthma)
  • Resorcinol (increase in circulating testosterone levels)
  • Eugenol ( cancer, allergies, immune and neurological system toxicity)
  • Parabens
  • Lead acetate (for the dark shade, anemia, neurological problems)

There is also a list of more than 20 different hair dye chemicals banned by the European Commission so far. Again if you do not want to eat it do not put it on your skin. It will add to overall toxic exposure even if they are not cancerogenic chemicals. Organic hair salons are popping up like mushrooms these days due to the growing toxic awareness.

What about the rest of the cosmetics toxicity exposure? In 2017 the cosmetics industry on a global scale reached $265 billion in revenue. For products that are used on a daily basis, small effects cumulating over time within large populations can be almost impossible to predict without comprehensive analysis and studies, and that is something nobody wants to invest in. There are some studies that have been done, but that is not an adequate amount.

Currently, cosmetic manufacturers have no legal obligation to report health problems from their products.

An excellent example of this is the Johnson & Johnson company that has suffered lines of costly court defeats over cases of its talcum powder inducing cancer. And many more cases are still looming. What happened was that internal memos showed that Johnson & Johnson knew about the cancer risk but still decided to misinform and represent talcum powder as an absolutely safe product.

Initially, a jury in the US state of Missouri awarded 550 million dollars in compensation to 22 women. On top of that, a jury added $4.1bn in punitive damages. So far the Johnson & Johnson battles some 9,000 legal cases involving its baby powder with hundreds of more lawsuits pending. Memos revealed that decades ago their own employed toxicologists were warning the company that there is a statistically significant association between hygienic talk use and ovarian cancer. It took years but in time there were nine studies done and published in the open literature. They also warned Johnson & Johnson that if they deny this risk, the talk industry will be seen in the public eye as same as the cigarette industry. The main argument of the victim families was that the company knew but deliberately did not present an adequate warning to customers of the risks of using the talk powder in question. The main cancerogenic substance in question was talk that can be found in many everyday household products such as body powders, cosmetics, or products designed especially for babies. The International Agency for Research on Cancer lists the perineal use of talc-containing products as possibly carcinogenic to humans. Talc, a naturally occurring mineral, can also sometimes contain a trace amount of asbestos but asbestos is cut from powders back in the 70s and it is not the culprit here, the talk is. It might be safe in the area of sweating armpit, but women traditionally put the stuff on their genitalia and the genitalia of babies too. Inhaling is also carcinogenic, and people who work with talk are at higher risk. It also raises the risk of fibroid tumors. This kind of tumor has no threat of malignancy. They are composed of muscle cells that overgrow to form a mass or knot within the uterus that is causing swelling, increased urination, and abdominal pain. By age 50 more than 80% of the black woman and 70% of white women have it.

Now we cannot live the life of paranoia and deprivation in fear of every product that is out there. All I can say welcome to the real world of “being informed.” Ignorance might be the bliss down the line.

Currently, there are more than 84,000 ingredients used in cosmetics. More than 12,000 of them are industrial chemicals used as cosmetic ingredients. Some of them are reproductive toxins, known carcinogens, and endocrine disruptors.

Parabens are preservatives used in cosmetics with 75 to 90 percent of cosmetics containing them. Also, parabens are used as fragrance ingredients, but consumers will not find that listed on the label because fragrance recipes are considered trade secrets. What they do is mimic estrogen. They are one of the well-known xenoestrogens. Studies show that methylparaben used on the surface of the skin responds with a UVB spectrum of light increasing skin damage, causing aging and DNA damage. They can be present naturally in certain foods but are metabolized when eaten. When applied to the skin they will be absorbed into the body directly into the bloodstream. Going into details about all of these chemicals is useless. Without governmental regulation, you as a consumer cannot read and understand all of the weird chemicals if they are even listed. There are a bunch of them that are known to be toxic. I will just name them and won’t go into details just so that we can have some objective views.  

  • DEA (diethanolamine) and DEA compounds (used to make cosmetics creamy, cause liver cancers and cancerous changes in skin and thyroid)
  • Dibutyl phthalate or DBP (nail products and some hair sprays, toxic to reproduction and hormone balance)
  • BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) (in moisturizer, makeup, cause cancer and interfere with hormone function)
  • Formaldehyde (listed on the label as DMDM HYDANTOIN, DIAZOLIDINYL UREA, IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA, METHENAMINE, or QUARTERNIUM-15)
  • Synthetic fragrances and perfume (allergies and asthma, cancer and neurotoxicity)
  • PEG’s (cancer, used in, moisturizers, conditioners, deodorants), mineral oil (makeup, lotions, in baby oil, soap can have PAHs that cause cancer, are toxic to the liver)
  • Siloxanes (hair products, moisturizer, makeup, damage the liver and disrupt hormones)
  • Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and sodium laureth sulfate (SLES)(shampoo, cleansers, bubble bath, can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane)
  • Triclosan (in anti-bacterial products and sanitizers, interfere with hormone function)
  • Chemical sunscreens (inflammation, dermatological effects, allergic reactions, and photogenotoxic (DNA altering) effects and actually promote cancer)
  • Aluminum (brain disorders, breast cancer, pro estrogenic effect)

The common woman uses 12 personal care products daily and man about 6 with each product containing a large list of chemicals. Less than 20% of these chemicals are tested for safety by industry safety panels. They just dump them to products literally. They do not have a legal obligation to test them. It would be too expensive for the industry to do double-blind clinical trials for every chemical they put in cosmetics and there are no legal obligations for them to do so. Thus we do not know what these chemicals can do.

On cosmetics labels, words like “natural”, “herbal”, “organic” has no legal definition. That means companies can put chemicals from the laboratory and called them natural because they smell like flowers. Herbal Essences from Procter and Gamble, number two shampoo in the US, for example, have the “essences” made from oil, and you will read this as a fragrance on the label. They add a touch of real oils from plants so that they can have a nice picture on the front and misguide you. This real natural essential oil is not what gives them a refreshing smell. Also, citric acid, a natural ingredient that is often found in citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons is there to balance the pH of the shampoo to about 5.5. Shampoos, including brands like Herbal Essences, are kept at a slightly acidic pH level. Citric acid acts as a preservative, and acidic levels are kept because hair appears shinier and lies smoother. Sodium citrate, which is also an Herbal Essences ingredient, achieves the same result as citric acid and is cheaper but they add citric acid beside it. They do that to fool you because if you think that you are smart and know what and from where citric acid is you will think that it must be “natural” shampoo.

The worst of all cosmetics on the market are skin whitening creams. They are super toxic. When for example Estee Lauder offers you a chance to help fight breast cancer they are at the same time using chemicals that are linked to cancer. The pink ribbon is so “empowering” to the woman’s cause. They all know how much real intelligence an average woman has.

The way they get away with this is marketing and when somebody asks them why are they using these chemicals they have a defense that these chemicals are a necessity. Without them, there will not be most of the products on shelves because there isn’t any other way for manufacturing them. These products will be overly expensive, and most women will have no money to buy them, and the doses used are so small that they will have no impact on the health of the users. And yes, they know all of this even if there are no clinical trials for most of the chemicals they are using. Some of the workers get dosed all day long. Even now when there are studies that link many of these substances to diseases, there are no laws to force the industry to get rid of them.

fda approved

The FDA does not assess the safety of personal care products. Since 1938 they banned 8 out of more than 12000 chemicals used in cosmetics. They do not even require all of the ingredients to be listed on the label. Cosmetic companies are self-policing, and compliance with recommendations is voluntary.

PlantPure Nation tells the story of three people on a quest to spread the message of one of the most important health breakthroughs of all time.  After nutritional scientist and author Dr. T. Colin Campbell speaks to the Kentucky legislature, his oldest son Nelson works with Kentucky State Representative Tom Riner to propose a pilot program documenting the health benefits of a plant-based diet.  Through this well intentioned effort, they inadvertently set in motion a series of events that expose powerful forces opposed to the diet. After industry lobbyists kill the pilot program, Nelson decides to try his own grassroots approach in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina, before circling back to Kentucky for a dramatic ending.  
 
A growing number of celebrities, athletes, TV hosts, and nutrition experts have promoted the plant-based diet in the past few years, and tens of thousands of people have documented their personal success stories.  But as more doctors and public officials become aware of the healing power of plant-based nutrition the question arises: Why don’t they share the information with the public?  Tragically, there have been few official medical or state-sponsored efforts in the nation to support the life sustaining benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet.

Are we omnivores, carnivores or herbivores? It’s important for animals to eat what they are physiologically and anatomically designed to eat, to improve the chances of survival and health. So, what are humans designed to eat? Dr. Sofia Pineda Ochoa discusses this often misunderstood topic.

The first part of the transcript is included below for reference, and the full transcript (which is too long to have here) is available on our website, along with sources and credits, at this link: http://meatyourfuture.com/2015/09/herbivores-carnivores/

PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT:

Are humans herbivores, carnivores or omnivores? It’s very important for a given animal to eat what they are physiologically and anatomically designed to eat, to improve the chances of survival and health. So, what are humans designed to eat?

When looking at a species to determine what they are in terms of carnivore, omnivore or herbivore, we can look at their behavior or we can look at their biology. From a behavioral standpoint, humans behave as omnivores because we observe many humans in their behavior eating a wide variety of both animal and plant-based foods. Biologically, however, from a physiologic and anatomic standpoint, it’s a different story.

Dr. Williams C. Roberts from the National Institutes of Health and Baylor University — who is the editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Cardiology and one of the most prominent cardiologists in the world with over 1,500 publications in peer reviewed medical journals — summarized our answer very nicely. He wrote:

“Although most of us conduct our lives as omnivores, in that we eat flesh as well as vegetables and fruits, human beings have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores. The appendages of carnivores are claws; those of herbivores are hands or hooves. The teeth of carnivores are sharp; those of herbivores are mainly flat (for grinding). The intestinal tract of carnivores is short (3 times body length); that of herbivores, long (12 times body length). Body cooling of carnivores is done by panting; herbivores, by sweating. Carnivores drink fluids by lapping; herbivores, by sipping. Carnivores produce their own vitamin C, whereas herbivores obtain it from their diet. Thus, humans have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores.”

That’s right. Humans have characteristics of herbivores, not carnivores or omnivores — because omnivores, like bears and raccoons, actually retain most of the carnivorous characteristics, so that they are still able to digest and hunt their prey, and do so effectively.

How much is a human life worth? An innovative cancer therapy promises to save lives. But it is extremely expensive. Will the insurance companies pay for it? What is the manufacturer's return on investment? And do lobbyists drive up prices?

In 2018, the Kymriah gene therapy was approved in Europe. Immune cells are taken from the patient, genetically reprogrammed into cancer killer cells and returned to the patient as an infusion. The results of the Kymriah study only cover a period of 18 months. In 40 percent of patients, lymph gland cancer does not return during this time. It is not clear whether Kymriah has a long-term effect. The Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis offers the new therapy - it costs 370,000 Swiss francs per patient. Health insurance companies are not usually prepared to pay that much and are complaining about a lack of transparency. 

But the killer cells were not invented in the Novartis laboratories, but at a US university. When Professor Carl June started his research almost 30 years ago, no pharmaceutical company was interested. It was only thanks to funding from tax money and donations that he was able to develop Kymriah at all. After a story went around the world about a girl with leukemia whose cancer disappeared thanks to Kymriah, the pharmaceutical company contacted Novartis and secured exclusive marketing rights. To launch Kymriah on the market, Novartis funded the necessary clinical trials. It's not an isolated incident: Over 60% of newly approved medicines in the US are developed by small biotech companies or universities. Pharmaceutical companies today frequently act as capital providers, cooperating with universities or buying up biotech companies. 

A paradigm shift has taken place in the pharmaceutical industry: Whereas high drug prices used to be justified by research costs, the industry is now using the value of gained lifetime to argue its case.
