Lipstick-Cancer?
I received this e mail this morning, I dont know how true it is but as a "lipstick addict" I do find it worrying!

LIPSTICK INFORMATION:

Something to consider
Next time you go shopping for
Lipstick......

This comes from someone
Who works in the breast cancer unit at

Mt. Sinai Hospital , in Toronto



From: Dr. Nahid Neman
Recently a lipstick brand called 'Red Earth' Decreased their prices from
$67 to $9.90.
It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.

The lipstick brands that contain lead are:
CHRISTIAN DIOR
LANCÔME
CLINIQUE
Y.S.L
ESTEE LAUDER
SHISEIDO
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.
The higher the lead content, The greater the chance of causing cancer.
After doing a test on lipsticks, It was found that the Y.S.L. Lipstick
Contained the most amount of lead.
Watch out for those lipsticks Which are supposed to stay longer.
If your lipstick stays longer, it isBecause of the higher content of lead.

Here is the test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,
Then you know the lipstick contains lead.

This information is being circulated at

Walter Reed Army Medical Centre Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, Especially breast cancer

It is a well known fact that LEAD was BANNED MANY MANY years ago.Not only in make up but PAINT as well.

It is so easy to check the authenticity of any scare-mongering email first, all you have to do is just type a few of the words contained in the email (e.g. "lipstick cancer") into Google. Then up come loads of sites comfirming it is a hoax.

Me too Martyn. Some of them have been circulating for years and get to worry a whole new batch of people at each circulation, it would be great if everyone checked on Google first.
