Whether they are bought from the chemist or the supermarket, and whether or not they feature the mention “hypoallergenic,” “paraben free” or “dermatologically tested,” many cosmetics contain chemical and allergen substances, preservatives and especially endocrine disruptors, which can have an effect on the hormonal system.
Potentially, these chemical substances are dangerous, particularly for pregnant women and young children. Some doctors are even saying they carry a cancer risk.
So what are the real risks? Why are some pharmaceutical companies still using these substances? insiders investigates.

Augusta is four months old. For Bozena, her mother, there is no question of her using any products containing these chemicals.
For example, the body lotion she uses is an oil and calcium liniment; a mixture based on olive oil, 100 percent natural.
“Companies tend to add a lot of useless products, like preservatives, containing lots of endocrine disruptors, and I think that not only are they unnecessary, they are harmful to health, for adults and even more so for young babies,” said Bozena.
Bozena is one of the small majority of mothers who actually read the labels on cosmetics.

The first step in treating chemical poisoning is preventing its occurrence. Most cases of chemical poisoning are due to such incidents as accidental ingestion of household chemicals by small children. These are highly preventable by taking safety steps, such as childproofing the home and keeping chemicals and medications out of the reach of small children. It is also important to follow all manufacturers' instructions for the safe use of household chemicals, such as pesticides, to avoid accidental chemical poisoning.
The treatment plan for chemical poisoning varies widely, depending on the toxin or toxicant involved, the length of exposure, the severity of symptoms, person's age and medical history, and other factors.
Treatment of a very mild case of chemical poisoning may involve simply observing a person until all potential effects of a chemical have worn off. On the other end of the scale, rigorous treatment in an emergency care and intensive care setting is required for many cases.
In some cases, it may be possible to reverse the effects of a chemical poisoning, such as with the use of antivenom for a snakebite. Another example is the use of the medication naloxone (Narcan) to reverse the respiratory depression effects of a narcotic overdose. Amyl nitrite is a substance that can reverse the effects of cyanide poisoning.
These types of antidotes must be used within a certain time frame before irreversible damage occurs. In addition, many chemicals do not have antidotes to poisoning.
Medical diagnostic procedures used to define and diagnose medical conditions are currently the greatest manmade source of ionizing radiation exposure to the general population. However, even these sources are generally quite limited compared to the general background radiation on Earth.
The risks and benefits of radiation exposure due to medical imaging and other sources must be clearly defined for clinicians and their patients. This article is a general overview for the medical practitioner, who should understand the fundamentals of medical ionizing radiation and the general associated risks. This article also acquaints the practitioner with relative doses of common radiographic procedures as well as natural background radiation.
The use of ionizing radiation in medicine began with the discovery of x-rays by Roentgen in 1895. Ionizing radiation is the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum with sufficient energy to pass through matter and physically dislodge orbital electrons to form ions. These ions, in turn, can produce biological changes when introduced into tissue. Ionizing radiation can exist in 2 forms: as an electromagnetic wave, such as an x-ray or gamma ray, or as a particle, in the form of an alpha or beta particle, neutron, or proton. X-rays are machine-generated, whereas gamma rays are electromagnetic waves that are emitted from the nucleus of an unstable atom. Different forms of ionizing radiation have differing abilities to generate biologic damage. The order of ionization effect of these forms can be found in Table 1 below.
A clear understanding of the measurement units of radiation and radioactivity is required to better communicate with colleagues or patients. Different units are used to describe radioactivity by energy (erg), decay activity rate (curie [Ci] or becquerel [Bq]), effect in air (roentgen [R]), ability to be absorbed (radiation-absorbed dose [rad] or gray [Gy]), or biologic effect (roentgen equivalent man [rem] or sievert [Sv]).

Canadian inventor John Hutchison is credited with the discovery of a highly-anomalous electromagnetic effect which causes the jellification of metals, spontaneous levitation of common substances, and other effects resulting from what is believed to be a very complex scalar-wave interaction between electromagnetic fields and matter.
