How many of the carcinogens found in everyday life? slideshow

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
    reported that they had conducted a survey of 8 000 women with this
    diagnosis. It turned out that those who used
    hair dye, on 23% more likely to develop cancer.
  • Nail Polish When purchasing paint, check its composition toluene,
    formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate. It’s components
    which is added to the varnish to maintain their
    consistency, proper curing and durability.
    Some researchers believe that it is “toxic
    trio” can penetrate into the blood through the nail plate.
    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
    when heated.
  • 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
    remains a source of the carcinogen.
