Resources for Information on
Chemicals in Products-Testimonies
Quote from Safe Shoppers Bible,
(written by Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, M.D.) "Not a single
cosmetic company warns consumers of the presence of
carcinogens in its products - despite the fact that several
common cosmetic ingredients or their contaminants are
carcinogenic themselves or are carcinogenic precursors.
Consumers have an inalienable right to know what ingredients
are in products they use daily, and to be certain that
chemicals posing chronic health risks will be phased out
when alternatives are available. I have reviewed the Neways
products, and confirm their safety and absence of any
carcinogenic ingredients or contaminants and deem them one
of the safest personal care product lines in the world."
Samuel S. Epstein, MD, Professor emeritus, Environmental and
Occupational Health, University of Illinois at Chicago,
School of Public Health; and Chairman,
Cancer Prevention Coalition.
In 1997, in the Boston Globe, Senator
Edward Kennedy reported that the GAC had reported and
identified more than 125 known carcinogens in our daily used
personal care products.
