Did you know that women on average apply more than 120 different chemicals on their skin before they leave the house in the morning? Remember our skin is the largest organ and what we put on it absorbs directly into your blood stream. Men and children are also affected by personal care products. Parabens are just one of the estrogen-like hormones that can be found in personal care products. An accumulation of these chemicals in the body can increase the chances of developing hypothyroidism, early puberty, hormonal imbalance, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and kale are helpful to support the body's detoxification pathways and help eliminate these environmental toxins.
In good health,
