“What is particularly galling about the “Dirty Dozen”, emphasized Ralph Nader, “is that these toxic chemicals don’t have to be there. Yet these corporations continue to expose people to health hazards unnecessarily”.

Current product labeling provides no warning for cancer and other chronic health risks. Food is labeled for cholesterol, but not for carcinogens. Cosmetics are labeled for major ingredients, but not for those that form carcinogens or contain carcinogenic contaminants. Except for pesticides, household products contain no information on their ingredients.

Cancer rates are skyrocketing. Currently, more than one-third of all of us will develop cancer in our lifetime, and one-fourth will die from the disease. Many cancers are due to avoidable exposures to industrial carcinogens in the food we eat, and the cosmetics and household products we use.

Hopefully this has gotten the message across that just because these products sit on store shelves, do not guarantee it’s safe to use. These are 12 of the thousands of products that have not been tested alone or in conjunction. We’d like to add one more to this product hall-of-shame.

Most Brand-Name Laundry Detergents


These are loaded with extremely toxic chemicals (not legally required to be placed on their labels) that could harm you, your family and the environment. Residues of these chemicals are left on your clothes and are absorbed by your skin and evaporated into the air where they could be breathed in.

Unlabeled Toxic Ingredients
Linear alkyl sodium sulfonates (LAS) or ‘anionic surfactants’, carcinogenic, reproductive toxins
Petroleum Distillates, carcinogenic, cause lung damage, lung inflammation and damage to mucous membranes.
Phenols, toxic to central nervous system, heart, blood vessels, lungs and kidneys.
Sodium hypochlorite (household bleach): When it reacts with organic materials in the environment, carcinogenic and toxic compounds are created than can cause reproductive, endocrine and immune system disorders.

Scary

Comment by HennyM on January 24, 2012 at 10:12am

i believe the shampoo ingredient is meant to be FD&C Red #40 not #4

Comment by HennyM on January 24, 2012 at 10:09am

 interesting that they are concerned about the red40 and blue1 in the cosmetics, but not in prenatal vitamins, kids medicine,  candy and groceries...

Thanks for this!  Much appreciated.

Nigel, sounds like the Government is covering this up so they do not have to admit that they made a mess like always~Pam~

Comment by Nigel KINGSLEY-LEWIS on January 3, 2012 at 4:35pm

I had kidney cancer two years ago I do not drink and do not smoke and never have done either. I was on non steroidal anti inflammatory's NSAIDS for nearly twenty years my doctor says that they were not the cause but a professor that I saw at Addenbrooks hospital said that it was one of the things that he was researching and that the incidence of renal carcinomas had rissen at exactly the same rate as the use of NSAIDS  but not to quote him. Also during those twenty years I was on the NSAIDS I lived right next door to an RAF airfield which had nuclear weapons, The house was 400meters from the hasers. On the farm during that time we had two dogs four donkeys and twelve goats all die of cancer. The mod claim that there was nothing on the airfield that would cause cancer a claim that falls into the same category of delusion as my dog has no fleas or I am King Canute and can command the tide to cease.

DEMAND THE TRUTH!

"It was the poverty caused by the bad influence of the
 English Bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and...the Revolutionary War."
– Benjamin Franklin

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."

Patrick Henry
June 26, 1788
