Procter and Gamble's Products with Cancer Causing Chemical

Procter and Gamble 1,4-Dioxane Cancer Causing Chemical And Brenda Kidd
http://procterandgamble1-4dioxanecausecancer.blogspot.com

1,4-dioxane is known to the state of California to cause cancer.
It is also on California's Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to cause cancer.
According to the California EPA, 1,4-dioxane is suspected as a kidney toxicant, neurotoxicant and respiratory toxicant.

Many companies use ethoxylation because it is a cheap shortcut process to provide mildness to harsh cleaning ingredients. The process requires the use of the cancer causing Petrochemical ethylene oxide, which generates 1,4-dioxane as a byproduct of ethoxylation.

According to the Environmental Working Group, 1,4-dioxane is also a groundwater contaminant.

Procter and Gamble Tide, Ivory Snow Gentle, Tide Free, Gain 2X Ultra, Cheer Bright Clean Detergent and Era 2X Ultra Conventional Brands had significantly higher levels of contaminant, which is 1,4-dioxane a known cancer causing chemical.

Below are some of Procter & Gamble Products that contains 1,4-dioxane during a product conducted test.

Tide had 55 parts per million of 1,4-dioxane in it.
Ivory Snow Gentle had 31 parts per million of 1,4-dioxane in it.
Tide Free had 29 parts per million of 1,4-dioxane in it.
Gain 2X Ultra had 21 part per million of 1,4-dioxane in it.
Cheer Bright Clean Detergent had 20 parts per million of 1,4-dioxane in it.
Era 2X Ultra had 14 parts per million of 1,4-dioxane in it.

However, 1,4-dioxane is not included on Procter and Gamble products ingredient labels, but it is a cancer causing chemical.

1,4-dioxane is not only in Procter and Gamble Conventional Brands of detergents, 1,4-dioxane is also in 18 of Procter and Gamble Herbal Essences shampoo products too.

A product test conducted revealed that an Herbal Essences shampoo of Procter and Gamble, contained 1,4-dioxane levels of 24 parts per million. That is 14 parts per million, over the limit, which is 10 parts per million.

The cancer causing chemical 1,4-dioxane is considered contaminant and is not included on the products ingredient labels.
The Food and Drug Administration does not require 1,4-dioxane to be listed on labels of personal care products, defining it as a contaminant rather than an ingredient because it is produced during manufacturing.

Procter and Gamble agreed to reformulate after an Environmental health consumer advocate filed a notice of intent to sue in California, under Proposition 65, the state's landmark toxics law. Procter and Gamble agreed to reformulate 18 of their Herbal Essences products to reduce levels of 1,4-dioxane to 10 parts per million or below.
1,4-dioxane is found in personal care products (shampoos, Cosmetics, deodorants, toothpastes and mouthwashes) and household cleaning products.

If you digested or swallowed toothpaste and mouthwash, can 1,4-dioxane get in your system and cause severe Lung, Esophagus and Stomach Cancer?
If you cut yourself, while you are shaving on any part of your body, (under the arm) can 1,4-dioxane get into your system and cause Breast Cancer/Cancer?

1,4-dioxane is known to cause cancer and is considered contaminant and Procter and Gamble knows this, however, (through the years, over the limit amounts of) 1,4-dioxane had been in their products.

Breast Cancer is breast cancer.
Lung Cancer is lung cancer.
Esophagus Cancer is esophagus cancer.
Stomach Cancer is stomach cancer.

Cancer is Cancer, why would any group of people, knowing that 1,4-dioxane causes cancer put 1,4-dioxane in their products?
Cancer is devastating. It can be prolonged or it can be a rapid form of death.

Procter and Gamble Products that contains 1,4-dioxane are still on the market.

Procter and Gamble have failed to warn consumers about their personal care and household cleaning products, which contains 1,4-dioxane.

Products can be made without 1,4-dioxane.

Is Cancer man made?

Procter and Gamble Says this About 1,4-Dioxane And Brenda Kidd

Thanks for contacting P&G.

The safety and well-being of the people who use our products is always our highest priority. We have over 700 scientists who are devoted to ensuring that our products and ingredients are safe and in compliance with all regulations prior to marketing.

It's important to know we do not intentionally add 1,4 dioxane to our products, but it can be present at a trace level in a few of our ingredients. We closely monitor these levels and want to assure you they are well below safe levels noted by regulatory agencies around the globe. And as mentioned before, all ingredients and known trace by-products are thoroughly evaluated for safety prior to marketing. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure the levels of 1,4 dioxane stay well below human safety limits, and meet all appropriate safety regulations around the world including USFDA and Health Canada. We're confident the levels in our products are safe.

Also important to know, the US state of California's EPA has established a safe level for 1,4 dioxane to which you could be exposed to every day for a lifetime. Any trace levels of 1,4 dioxane in a laundry product would be well below this safe level. You could do over 2800 loads of laundry in one day, every day, and still be below the safe level.

We hope this is reassuring to you.

Procter and Gamble To Kill Or Not to Kill And Brenda Kidd
http://procterandgamble1-4dioxanecausecancer.blogspot.com

We as people can't allow Procter and Gamble to take over our minds and our way of thinking. Therefore I have to try to reach out to people in a very helpful way. That way sometimes is through educating them in all the helpful ways that I know how.

You must understand that my baby sister die with Breast Cancer at the age of 51. I know a lot about breast cancer because of her and my mother. They both were diagnosed with Breast cancer. They both were operated on, on the same day right behind each other by the same doctor.

My heart goes out to you and you and you.

Procter and Gamble must tell the truth to the people. Why would Procter and Gamble put 1,4-dioxane in their products, knowing that it causes cancer, while at the same time Procter and Gamble supports the cancer foundation?

The cancer causing chemical 1,4-dioxane is considered contaminant and is not included on their products ingredient labels.
The Food and Drug Administration does not require 1,4-dioxane to be listed on labels of personal care products, defining it as a contaminant rather than an ingredient because it is produced during manufacturing.

If this wasn't true, why Procter and Gamble did agreed to reformulate...Procter and Gamble agreed to reformulate after an Environmental health consumer advocate filed a notice of intent to sue in California, under Proposition 65, the state's landmark toxics law. Procter and Gamble agreed to reformulate 18 of their Herbal Essences products to reduce levels of 1,4-dioxane to 10 parts per million or below.

1,4-dioxane is found in personal care products (shampoos, Cosmetics, deodorants, toothpastes and mouthwashes) and household cleaning products.

Think with your brain, not theirs. Procter and Gamble have sued a lot of companies, why would they back away from this attempted sue case? Because it is true... And Procter and Gamble knows when they can't win a sue case. Wake up before it is too late.

This is said in a caring way for you and you and you.
