Anti-cancer Cosmetic and Personal Care: What to Avoid and Why

As cancer becomes more and more prevalent today, increased awareness of the cosmetic and personal care products we are using should be a key focus. Today we know more about the skin than ever before and the most important myth that we want to dispel is that certain ingredients can be absorbed through the surface of the skin and penetrate deeper than previously thought. This increased absorption of chemicals can create havoc over the long term affecting our immune systems, hormonal systems, and skin. 

If you are already an oncology patient, then, you know the traditional cancer treatments can result in a myriad of side-effects that can profoundly affect your daily life of those concerned. The good news is that many of these side-effects can be reduced or even completely eliminated by modifying some of your daily habits and creating an anti-cancer mindset.
