There was a study released in the middle of last month showing that the chemicals in our surroundings may lead to up to 20% of all causes of cancer!!!
No this is not another report from the Dept of DUH! (DOD) this report was compiled by 174 scientist from around the world and published in the journal Carcinogenesis. Logic tells us that many chemicals can have a vast array of effects on our health but this study was not really just about that.
The study challenges the existing beliefs and technique for measuring whether a chemical is carcinogenic, or cancer-causing, in isolation. What the scientist concluded was that we live in a chemical soup and that some
"harmless chemicals" that can combine with others can create a dangerous and unpredictable mix.
Some points to take away from this study are:
None of these substances is a known carcinogen in itself, but in combination with other substances could make a cancer-causing soup within you:
