MedicalConspiracies- "It Works" wrap thing - What does it do to your HEATH?

I have a few friends who keep posting on Facebook about “It Works” I don’t care whether it works or not. I wouldn’t put these cancer causing agents and toxic ingredients on my skin.

If you have used “It Works” I suggest you WORK on detoxing what your body has already absorbed!

It never ceases to amaze me how a company will market a product as “All Natural Ingredients” or “Naturally Based” and then when you look at the long ingredient list you find this:

Cream Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glucose, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat., Stearic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth 12, Aesculus hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed Extract, Urea, Centella asiatica (Hydrocotyl) Leaf Extract, Camellia sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Fucus vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) Thalle Extract, Hedera helix (Ivy) Leaf Extract, Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) Leaf/Stem Extract, Ruscus aculeatus (Butchers Broom) Root Extract, Paullinia cupana (Guarana) Seed Extract, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Decyl Oleate, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG 7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, TEA-Hydroiodide, Methylsilanol Mannuronate, Menthol, Camphor, Panthenol, Phenoxyethanol, Retinyl Palmitate, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus) Leaf Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, BHT. Limonene, Linalool.

Limonene, Linalool. Tela: Polipropileno / Polietileno

Sprinkled in among some dangerous ingredients are a few natural oils and in this case, the bad definitely out ways the good. Whether it works or not, the health risk just isn’t worth the end result!

I wish I had the time to break down all those bad ingredients for you but I only have time for one – BHT.


Chemistry of BHA and BHT Food Preservatives

By Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D., Guide

Both BHA and BHT have undergone the additive application and review process required by the US Food and Drug Administration. However, the same chemical properties which make BHA and BHT excellent preservatives may also be implicated in health effects. The oxidative characteristics and/or metabolites of BHA and BHT may contribute to carcinogenicity or tumorigenicity; however the same reactions may combat oxidative stress. There is evidence that certain persons may have difficulty metabolizing BHA and BHT, resulting in health and behavior changes. BHA and BHT may have antiviral and antimicrobial activities. Research is underway concerning the use of BHT in the treatment of herpes simplex and AIDS.

Everyone wants that magic bullet… but at the cost of your health?

I think not!
