    There is mention of smoking and diet but unfortunately there is no mention of chemicals that are in our daily products that can cause cancer as well. Phthalates, parabens, glycol, propylene, and the list goes on and on! These are products that are put on our bodies everyday from the time we step out of the shower to leaving the house for the day. Europe bans 1,342 toxic chemicals from personal care products and the US only bans 9. Don't you remember Anderson Cooper's Body Burden test from Planet in Peril? The US needs to get their priorities in order, but then again...when you have lobbyists involved in politics, it all boils down to money. Sad! But the good news is...is there are products out there that are safe, and people are becoming aware...and those companies that keep making these toxic products will be left to change or go out of business.
