Around the factors influencing the formation of cancer, there were many myths. It may seem that danger is literally everything. Is it really so? Scientists confirm that some household items can really be a threat.
- Deodorants It is believed that parabens, which are added
in decorative and care cosmetics and deodorants,
can lead to cancer. Significantly, communication is not established
however, in 2012, us researchers
published the results of a study of tissues women
undergoing a mastectomy. In 99% of the samples detected
at least one paraben. And speaking
about the deodorants, the additional risk
present aluminum salts contained
in some of them.
- Tattoo American scientists have found that tattoos on the body
significantly increase the risk of developing melanoma.
The main reason is paint, which contain harmful
impurities. Especially dangerous are recognized
the most popular blue dye, which can be
a lot of cobalt and aluminum. Researchers believe
what do people with tattoos the risk of skin cancer
80% higher than the average for the population.
- Hair dye Scientists do not exclude connection between the use of paint
for hair development of breast cancer.
Researchers from the University of Helsinki in 2017

hair dye, on 23% more likely to develop cancer.
- Nail Polish When purchasing paint, check its composition toluene,

Others note that their concentration is small, but they
these substances are toxic to the body.
- Teflon coating on utensils Agency for nature protection of the United States are
perfluorooctanoic acid, which contains
in Teflon, to dangerous compounds. It is assumed,
that it might cause cancer in humans and serious
to pollute the environment, and the United States was deployed
campaign for the elimination of this compound
from the production processes.
- Plastic kitchenware American scientists warn that when heated
plastic containers emit bisphenol-A, which
can lead to the development of tumors. So if you
take healthy food from home in plastic
the container, but warm it in the microwave, the risk
disease, unfortunately, increases.
- Radon In 2007 the United Nations Scientific Committee on the effects of
of atomic radiation (UNSCEAR) reported an increased
the risk of lung cancer in people who
exposed to radon. And highlight it can
the materials used in the construction
houses, so this warning should pay
- Asbestos Inhalation of asbestos can lead to cancer development
lungs. Unfortunately, scientists have found it after
in 1970, the year asbestos was widely used
as a building material, as well as
for thermal insulation. Especially dangerous is asbestos
- Furniture Scientists from Duke University (USA) I believe
what fire-prevention impregnation of furniture can be
the cause of thyroid cancer.
Until 2004 as refractory impregnation of furniture
used substance PBDE (polybromodiphenyl
ether). In 2004, its use was banned,
but in many homes to keep the old furniture, which
