Nowadays, there are all sorts of different products out there that can be cancer causing. There are many different harmful chemicals that have been incorporated into our daily lives. 

It’s true, in modern day times, there is nothing you touch that cancer doesn’t. It’s an exhausting villain to fight and it wipes you out in so many ways that are hard to explain to people who haven’t felt the impact of this horrific disease in their own lives. It is despicable that we have to be concerned with cancer causing chemicals being in our food, water, shampoos, or cosmetics. These chemicals often find their ways into our homes because they are cheaper to use than other ingredients. Profiteering CEO’s are more interested in saving a buck or two than the health of the public.
