NEWS FROM THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE...
It looks like one of the oldest baby shampoos - and most used - has two chemicals that cause cancer! Who knew? My wife even uses baby shampoo because it's gentle on her hair. Now, parents have something new to worry about while taking care of their babies.
The Chicago Tribune picked up the story from The Washington Post's reporter Lyndsey Layton:
"More than half the baby shampoo, lotions and other infant-care products analyzed by a health advocacy group were found to contain trace amounts of two chemicals that are believed to cause cancer, the organization said Thursday.
Some of the biggest names on the market, including Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo and Baby Magic lotion, tested positive for 1,4-dioxane or formaldehyde or both, the non-profit Campaign for Safe Cosmetics reported.
The chemicals, both characterized as probable carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency, are not added intentionally to products and appear to be byproducts of the manufacturing process."
