Skin area cancer is a issue when abnormal skin tissues start to develop uncontrollably and fast. It is triggered by DNA harm to skin area cells that encourages modification or defects that ultimately cause expansion of skin cells and development of malignant tumors.
Unfortunately, many household products, nowadays, contain chemicals that can damage our health and are really hazardous. The following are the 4 most common household products that may cause skin cancer. Therefore, avoid these products and use natural homemade products, instead.
1. Artificial Sweeteners
People believe that artificial sweeteners are healthier than sugar, but that isn’t true. Of course, there are natural sweeteners that are healthy, but that is not the case with the artificial ones.
Here are the artificial sweeteners that can cause serious health issues:
- Sorbitol – may cause diarrhea, stomach gasses, and swelling, because it does not digest well
- Saccharin – may cause bladder cancer, since it is not easy to digest and it is discharged by the liver
- Aspartame – may cause skin cancer
- Acesulfame K – may cause tumor and have a negative impact on pregnancy
The following are the natural sweeteners that are healthy and preferable for consumption:
- Xylitol – prevents dental caries and enhances the density of the bones
- Stevia – reduces the levels of sugar and in the blood and lowers high blood pressure
- Yacon Syrup – relieves constipation and provides food to the good bacteria in the bowels
2. Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
This product consists of methylchloroisothiazolinone and ammonium sulfate, which can be contaminated by component like 1, 4-dioxane, during the process of production.
Indeed, when these components merge together they become carcinogenic, i.e. they can cause cancer, especially skin cancer.
Therefore, here’s a recipe for a natural rosemary and cypress anti-dandruff shampoo. Just mix 5 tablespoons of any shampoo, 3 springs of cypress, 3 springs of rosemary, and 5 tablespoons of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. Pour the mixture into a bottle and use it three times a week, until you get rid of dandruff.
3. Antibacterial Soap
Triclosan is an ingredient found in this product and can cause cancer, increase the risk of infertility, and damage hormonal balance. Therefore, try to switch from antibacterial soaps to homemade natural soaps.
First, grate a mild soap that does not contain chemicals and melt it on low heat, but make sure you stir frequently so that you prevent the formation of lumps. Then, add 30 drops of your favorite essential oil and mix well. Next, transfer the mixture to a suitable container and let it dry. And, your natural soap is ready for use.
In addition, in order to get the maximum out of this soap, you’d better choose an essential oil that has antibacterial properties, such as rosemary, lemon, clove, lavender, eucalyptus, or tea tree oil.
4. Air Fresheners
People use plenty of different chemical products in order to keep their homes or workplaces clean. It is true that some products may protect us from bacteria, but, still, they can cause some health issues including asthma and any other issues related to the respiratory system, or issues connected to the hormone balance.
As a substitute for these products try using a combination of vinegar and baking soda because they are very powerful anti-microbial cleaning agents, and what is more important, they are completely natural. Furthermore, they do not have any side effects and they can even fight against bacteria like Staph salmonella and Escherichia coli.
