Next time, you spritz on perfume or cologne and use scented products, consider this...
More than 95 percent of the chemicals in synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals.
Fragrance is a combination of chemicals used to create a distinct smell. This combination is protected legally as a "trade secret" so the actual ingredients do not need to be disclosed.
These chemicals include:
- benzene derivatives
- and thousands more (over 3,100 stock chemical ingredients are used by the fragrance industry)
Their danger? They can cause cancer, birth defects, nervous-system disorders, allergies, and more.
Phthalates in particular have been shown to:
- disrupt hormone activity
- reduce sperm counts
- cause reproductive malformation
- have been linked to liver and breast cancer, diabetes, and obesity
If that isn't enough, fetal exposure to phthalates has been linked to autism, ADHD, and neurological disorders.
Solution: Read labels carefully. Buy products that do not have "fragrance" in the label. Make your own scents with essential oils.
