Why Is It Beneficial To Go Paraben Free?



Paraben has been a topic of discussion in the beauty industry, particularly in recent years. While some assure that parabens are safe, others link them with a variety of health risks. While more research is needed to truly determine whether or not parabens are a threat, there are several benefits to being on the safe side and opting for paraben free products.
Parabens Appear to Mimic Estrogen: 
Parabens seem to mimic the hormone estrogen, which is naturally found in both genders, but exists in greater quantity in women. Estrogen is in charge of female secondary sexual characteristics such as menstruation. As with most hormones, having too much or too little can be problematic.
Avoid a Potential Cancer Risk: 
Numerous studies have linked parabens to cancer. This is due in part to the fact that parabens are not easily broken down in the human body and may continue to accumulate, and to mimic estrogen, leading to increased risks of breast cancer in women and testicular cancer in men.
Help the Environment: 
The parabens found in soaps, cosmetics and shampoos eventually end up in the ocean. While studies are ongoing about the effects of parabens in the water, there have been cases of marine animals, including dolphins, found with high paraben content. 
Paraben Free Alternatives: 
Perhaps the best benefit of going paraben free is the broad variety of alternatives. The potential risks posed by parabens has prompted many in the skin care industry to seek healthier alternatives. Whether you are looking for a paraben free skin care cream, or a paraben free Vitamin C and E serum, you have plenty of options from brand names, as well as instore and online retailers.
With potential risks and plenty of easy to access alternatives, going paraben free is simply the safer choice.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice...
