Are Parabens a real health issue? Can they cause weight gain, breast cancer, infertility and other health issues.

metabolic and neurological disorders.
The most common type found in shampoos and body washes are Parabens.
These endocrine disorders can affect all people of all ages.
"Xenoestrogens are a class of synthetic estrogens known as endocrine-disrupting chemicals that bind to estrogen receptors in cells to mimic or antagonize the action of endogenous estrogens, such as 17β-estradiol (E2) (Zoeller et al. 2012). Numerous xenoestrogens are found in common household products, including plastics, food and soda cans, and personal-care products. One class of xenoestrogens that is of increasing public health concern is esters of parahydroxybenzoic acid, commonly known as parabens (Nohynek et al. 2013; Karpuzoglu et al. 2013). These compounds are common ingredients in cosmetics, shampoos, body lotions, and sunscreens, where they are used to prevent microbial growth and prolong shelf life (Dodson et al. 2012; Guo and Kannan 2013).http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC485839..."
What is an endocrine disruptor? Endocrine disruptors interfere with the function of the endocrine system.
The endocrine system regulates the thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal glands, the pancreas, the ovaries and the testes.
When you rub shampoos,conditioners, and body washes that contain endocrine disruptors this may send false signals to your body’s endocrine glands.
Endocrine disruptors are stored in a body’s fatty tissues.
How can you protect yourself? Read every ingredient on every personal care product label and be suspicious of every chemical ingredient.
Help Hair Shampoos RescueMD and Leafy Green do not contain parabens.
