I try to weed out the carcinogens in my life one by one so it's not overwhelming. AC makes me feel sick, so I avoid using it anyway. I make my own deodorant (I use the angry chicken deodorant recipe, you can Google it. I sub 1ttablespoon shea butter for 1 tablespoon coconut oil). I don't own an electric blanket.

I wish people would stop saying that everything causes cancer, because it doesn't. That is a defeatist attitude. Carcinogens cause cancer and we can do something about these products that contain carcinogens.

Hey people guess what LIFE IS KILLING US. You start dying the day you're born. Just live. Geez.

nonmember avatar does it matter?

Your article is clearly wrong and spreads misinformation. You state "definately" killing but even admit to no clear causal link in some of the extra info. All of the items (BPA, EMF, CellPhones...) have not been show to cause cancer. Just for example http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/no-carrying-your-cell-phone-in-your-bra-will-not-cause-breast-cancer-no-matter-what-dr-oz-says/ Please reevaluate your position to coincide with the scientific, evidence-based consensus. :)
