What kinds of exposures are linked breast cancer?




Chemicals and radiation linked to breast cancer can be found in everyday products that we use on our bodies, in our homes, workplaces and even in the food we consume as well as in air, dust and water. Some of these exposures are known or likely to cause cancer, while many others disrupt the body’s hormones.

What kinds of exposures are linked breast cancer?

Some chemicals and physical agents are known or likely to cause cancer—these are called carcinogens. Some disrupt the body’s natural hormonal processes, changing how the breast develops in ways that make it more vulnerable to cancer. And some upset the normal checks and balances that repair or kill damaged cells. Many exposures fall into more than one of these categories.

Carcinogens

Carcinogens include physical or chemical agents that can cause cancer. The U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) review the wide-ranging science on different chemical and physical agents to determine if the data indicates they are able to cause cancer.

Hormone Disruptors

Hormone disruptors, formally called endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs), are agents that disrupt the normal function of the body’s own hormones. Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers that regulate everything from breast development to pregnancy and metabolism. They include estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, thyroid hormone and more. Hormone disruption is especially relevant for breast cancer, because breast development in different life stages is guided by hormones. Exposures to chemicals that disrupt these normal processes can alter normal breast development in ways that lead to increased risk of breast cancer in later life.

Other Exposures

Normally, the body is able to repair damage to cells. Cells are even programmed to die if they become badly damaged. The newest science considers that our routine exposures to mixtures of chemicals and physical agents may lead to cancer when each different exposure disturbs a different biological process that normally protects us from cancer.

Where are we exposed?

Everyday products that we bring into our homes, workplaces, and the air we breathe, water we drink and even household dust all contain chemicals and physical agents linked to breast cancer.

Everyday Exposures

Chemicals linked to breast cancer include everything from bisphenol A in canned foods to perfluoroalkyl substances in anti-aging creams to flame retardants in computer monitors. They get into our bodies from the foods we consume, products we put on our skin, or from the air we breathe. Many of these chemicals are also found in household dust. Pharmaceuticals, such as hormone therapies and oral contraceptives, also contain chemicals linked to breast cancer.

Exposures at Work

Regardless of education, income or job roles, women can encounter chemicals and radiation linked to breast cancer at work. Research links some of these occupational exposures to increase risk of breast cancer. Women working in medical fields may encounter ionizing radiation, light-at-night, and solvents. Textile workers may use aromatic amine dyes, and those working in other manufacturing fields likely use solvents for some tasks. Transportation workers and first responders are likely to be exposed to higher levels of PAH’s, which are in vehicle exhaust fumes.

Environmental Exposures

Chemicals from industrial process, agriculture, and other chemicals can make their way into air, water, and household dust. Studies have found that indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air and that household dust can be a major source of exposure. Many chemicals linked to breast cancer, such as DDT, PCB’s, PFAS chemicals, and flame retardants remain in the environment for decades or centuries. Even though many of these chemicals were banned in the last 50-60 years, many remain in the environment.

Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed...

Skin Care Chronicle: Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally Revealed...:

Anti-Aging Secret of Pomegranates Finally RevealedUntil recently, the scientific evidence that pomegranates are truly the superfood that we’ve all been led to believe has been unsubstantial. To add to this, some questionable marketing tactics have raised doubts as well. A team of researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the life science company Amazentis decided to investigate the fruit more closely and discovered that there is a molecule within pomegranates that is transformed by microbes in the gut, allowing muscle cells to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.

Campaign for Safe Cosmetics

The Breast Cancer Fund stands in opposition to H.R. 2576, the “Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act,” which will be voted on by both houses of Congress this week. Despite three years of intense negotiation by chemical industry and other trade lobbyists versus environmental health and justice advocates, sociall y responsible businesses, and major medical and health associations; this legislation does not meet the promise of federal chemicals management policy capable of fully protecting the public health from unsafe chemical exposures linked to increasing rates of breast cancer and other diseases.

Neauvia wide range of fillers in the latest issue of Prime Journal

Talking deeply about Neauvia wide range of fillers in the latest issue of Prime Journal, the International journal of Aesthetic and Anti-Ageing medicine.
Application Skin lifting, firmness, and elasticity NEAUVIA ORGANIC range of fillers is crosslinked with PEG, an outstanding new technology able to give the products a high safety and tolerability profile. Each reference of the filler line has a specific rheology, due to the particular chemical geometry and the real polymeric technology, to be effective and perfectly integrated in different anatomical planes. The high viscoelasticity and cohesivity of Neauvia INTENSE LINE promote an important tissue bio-integration of the medium and deep planes together with a high lifting power and a long-lasting effect. The polymeric 3D architecture containing CaHA of Neauvia STIMULATE LINE shows a scaffold-like action promoting a slow release of the microparticles, with a size of 10–12 microns, blocked in the hydrogel clusters, thereby activating the fibroblastic components at the metabolic level. The range is completed with a CaHA suspension in a linear hyaluronic acid filler with high viscosity for superficial correction and stimulation: the HYDRODELUXE LINE.

Treatments

Neauvia Organic Dermal Filler

 

Ailesbubry was the first clinic to introduce the worlds first revolutionary Organic Dermal Filler – Neauvia into Ireland and Dr. Patrick Treacy is European KOL for this product  
Neauvia is the first and the only Organic Dermal Filler line offering a natural look and minimizes the risk of adverse reactions.
Neauvia Organic is manufactured using hyaluronic acid produced by a non-pathogenic strain of Bacillus subtilis, which is targeted at increasing the safety of treatments and allows to avoid reactive responses caused by protein residues.

Neauvia Uses

Neauvia is suitable for both woman and men of different ages. It can help with deep folds around the mouth and nose, sunken cheeks, facial scars, deep acne scars and loose skin.
Neauvia Organic Dermal Filler Range has been developed for filling loss of tissue and to stimulate collagen production in the face & body.

Neauvia Safety

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring polysaccharide that forms the structure of tissues and contributes to optimal functioning of many organs in the human body. HA is widely used in medicine and pharmacology due to its biocompatibility, biodegradability and various biological functions.
Therefore, purity of hyaluronic acid is extremely important when it comes to safe human use. Acid obtained through Bacillus subtilis assures such purity. In a special purification process, which is conducted in water, hyaluronic acid produced by Bacillus subtilis is released directly to the medium.
The use of the Bacillus subtilis bacteria in the production of hyaluronic acid allows obtaining a perfectly purified product that does not cause hypersensitive response and hence is absolutely safe for the human body.
The Neauvia Organic dermal filler range also is unique as it the only dermal filler to be crosslinked with PEG. PEG is a well-known polymer on the pharmaceutical market, but was used for the first time in filler production by Neauvia. It is not only non-toxic, but also reduces the action of the proteolytic enzymes and immunogenicity of the substance to which it is added.

Science Improves Understanding of How Skin Products Work




Nobody wants to use unhealthy products on their skin. If you only purchase skincare items labeled organic, natural or the like, does that mean they actually do what they claim for your complexion? As skincare – and consumers – become more sophisticated, scientists are researching how the molecular structure of different products affects skin molecules. For skincare manufacturers, this means they can develop or enhance products based on state-of-the-art scientific research. It also gives consumers access to healthier, more effective skin cleansers, moisturizers and anti-aging products.

Skin Structure

The skin’s outermost of its five layers is known as the Stratum Corneum (SC). It’s the barometer for the skin’s overall health and forms a protective barrier. The molecules in this upper layer are fluid. Solvents used in skincare and other products may change the SC’s protective barrier function. A recently published study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences notes, “Deepened understanding of molecular effects of foreign compounds in SC fluidity can therefore have strong impact on the development of skin products in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and sanitary applications.”

Collagen Repair

There’s already plenty of skincare items on the market that researchers know can’t perform as advertised because of their molecular structure. Collagen is a good example. Collagen is the primary structure in the body. It keeps skin firm and supple. Collagen production decreases as people age, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. There are plenty of creams on the market advertising their collagen content – and they’re all natural, to boot. The bad news is that collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the dermal surface. None of that collagen is actually absorbed into the skin, so the products are a waste of money. There are methods of injecting collagen into the skin, but these expensive procedures are done by a doctor, not in your own bathroom.

Retinols

Skincare formulations containing retinols succeed because they work on the molecular level. Vitamin A is the base of all retinols, and on the molecular level, vitamin A can penetrate into the lowest levels of the skin. Once there, it slows collagen breakdown and helps prevent wrinkle formation. Not only are retinols scientifically proven to lessen wrinkling, but it improves skin tone and firmness. The strongest types of retinols, such as Retin-A, are available only by prescription. Over-the-counter products containing retinols are less strong, but still possess anti-aging properties.
