Center for Environmental Health Releases Official List Of Shampoos That Cause Cancer

Good evening. Check your showers for any of these shampoos!


It seems like every day that a new study is released showing a correlation between our daily household goods and cancer causing ingredients. The use of carcinogenic ingredients in manufacturing is on the rise, and they are finding their way into our homes in unexpected places.

When you read this story about the latest detection of cancer-causing ingredients in something you use every day, you will have to tell all your friends.

A study on soaps and shampoos conducted by the Center for Environmental Health, based in Oakland, California, discovered that your shampoo could be deadly. In fact, the study concluded that 98 of the included products contained a potential carcinogen called cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide DEA). California listed cocamide DEA as a known carcinogen in 2012 under its Prop 65 law, which requires warning labels on consumer products containing carcinogens or reproductive toxicants.

Michael Green, the executive director of CEH, stated that, “Most people believe that products sold in major stores are tested for safety, but consumers need to know that they could be doused with a cancer-causing chemical every time they shower or shampoo. We expect companies to take swift action to end this unnecessary risk to our children’s and families’ health.”
