Breast Cancer Increases with Cleaner Use

I know that some of you are looking for reasons not to spend your time cleaning and now you have it. Of course if you are cleaning with Shaklee Cleaning Get Clean Products you wouldn’t have an excuse. All kidding aside the lastest study today in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health showed a higher  breast cancer risk among women who reported the highest cleaning product use; however, we caution that these results may be influenced by differences among women in what they recall about past product use as well as their actual product use.  The journal’s press release is pasted below along with a link to the journal abstract and full article.  

Because of our concern that some cleaning products contain mammary gland carcinogens or endocrine disruptors, we have long recommended alternatives that may reduce exposure to suspect chemicals:  http://silentspring.org/take-action.

Here are a few of the news stories reporting our results around the world:
