There is significant research that indicates the chemicals used in body lotions have been linked to breast cancer. Many women and girls are using these scented body lotions lathering them all over their bodies, including their breasts. The skin is the largest area of the body. Chemicals can easily be absorbed through the skin. If the immune system is not able to detoxify these chemicals disease can occur.

Would you knowingly place toxic chemicals on your body?

It is important to read labels on these lotions and body washes. Know what chemicals are in these products. A good rule of thumb is if you cannot pronounce an ingredient you should not be using it. There are alternative sources for scented body lotions that do not contain these toxic ingredients. You can purchase these items at natural health stores or use essential oils from Young Living.
