For all you lipstick users
DO YOU WEAR LIPSTICK?? - PASS ONTO WOMEN YOU KNOW & CARE ABOUT
Something to consider next time you go shopping for lipstick......
This comes from someone who works in the breast cancer unit at Mt. Sinai Hospital , in Toronto . From: Dr. Nahid Neman
Recently a lipstick brand called "Red Earth" decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.
The lipstick brands that contain lead are:
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.
The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer.
After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick contained the most amount of lead. Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.
Here is the test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick color changes to black, you know the lipstick contains lead.
Please send this information to all your girlfriends, wives and female family members. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center
Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
