Cosmetics and personal care products are the single largest class of avoidable lifelong exposures to highly toxic ingredients, including many scientifically proven to cause cancer. Contrary to popular belief, the FDA neither warns us about nor protects us from these dangers. Concerned only with its own sales, the industry recklessly ignores or trivializes them, making them guilty of flagrant white collar crime. In Toxic Beauty, longtime international cancer prevention expert Dr. Epstein outlines the serious threats that toxic ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products pose to our health and our lives. He describes the carcinogenic, hormonal, and other toxic ingredients in these products, and provides information on the safe alternative products becoming increasingly available. Part expose and part practical handbook, Toxic Beauty shows you how to protect your health, and that of everyone you care about.
