Lip Gloss Linked To Cancer

I'll pretend to think like a intolerant and militant no-smoking Nazi on this issue. After all, it is the Militant No-Smoking Nazis who falsely claim that "there is no such thing as a safe degree of second-hand cigarette smoke."

Well, then there must be no such thing as a safe degree of lip gloss and other type of cosmetics.

From Medical News Today:

    If you are a regular lip balm or lip gloss user you should perhaps bear in mind that there is a good chance your risk of developing skin cancer is greater, according to researcher, Dr. Christine Brown, Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas. The balms/glosses actually attract the ultraviolet rays.


    Shiny lip balms/glosses have the opposite effect of sun blocks - they attract the rays to the lips.

I guess "Big Lip Balm" and "Big Gloss" will be the next corporations hit with a class action lawsuit.

It was just this past December that I wrote about recent finding of toxins in lipstick.

In other words what I'm saying is it's the women who are part of the intolerant and militant no-smoking-anywhere-ever crowd who need the most make-up - gallons and gallons and gallons of it - when it would be so much safer to wear paper bags over their heads.
