Breasts of women who are in a period of growth should be completely protected from exposure to chemicals. Chemicals found in household products like detergents, plastic drink bottles and canned foods can increase the risk of breast health.
Risk for women when exposed to certain chemicals can affect the growth and health, including the ability to breastfeed and also the risk of breast cancer.
The researchers noted several chemicals found in household products like detergents, plastic drink bottles and canned foods can increase the risk. Therefore the scientists tested the effects of chemicals on the early development of the mammary gland.
Initial disturbance in the mammary gland caused by exposure to chemicals can increase the risk of a dangerous future. Risks that may arise is the problem in lactation (breastfeeding), the growth of abnormal breast and breast cancer risk.
Based on studies done on animals regarding the effect of breast development of the chemicals might affect some unknown substance that is:
- Atrazine is commonly found in pesticides for agricultural
- Dioxin, an industrial pollutant that is usually found in some fatty foods
- Bisphenol A (BPA) found in water bottles and food cans
- Nonyphenol, breakdown products are found in certain detergents
- Polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE)
“Women who have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer may be at higher risk of exposure to these chemicals,” said Ruthann Rudel, research director of Silent Spring, as quoted from HealthDay.
Some of these chemicals may be difficult to avoid, but the community can minimize exposure. Ways you can do is reduce the consumption of water from plastic bottles, start the consumption of organic food to avoid the use of pesticides as well get used to eating fresh foods and avoid canned food.
