A new research done at the University of California has found some intriguing causes and facts about heart ailments that are linked with certain chemicals used in lipsticks preparation, and other beauty and personal health care products. These chemicals not only cause heart disease but also results in muscle impairments and fertility problems.
The study was down by UOF scientists who found out about an element named triclosan that is very harmful for health and environment. The scientists experimented on mice and it astonishingly revealed that their heart function drastically reduced to 20-25%. However, some experts points out that the dose given to the mice were above normal as compared to human exposure to the same chemicals.
Earlier the scientists viewed that the body metabolizes these chemicals quickly. Research at California University has shown that actually, the body does not metabolize it completely and the triclosan remains active and destructive for the organs when they are exposed to it.
The findings about these chemicals that are present in almost all cosmetic products including LipSticks is an eye-opener to both medical and environmental experts and concerned associations and companies.
