Thanks to modern inventions, modern medicine and a lot of things we have learned though the centuries about safety, people today are probably safer from accidents than at any other time in history. Despite all the safety precautions we take, it’s unlikely that any of us will ever be completely safe from everything. There are dangers that lurk right inside your own home that can kill you. Being aware of these potential hazards could help keep you out of harms way in the place you would normally feel most safe. In your own home.
Although this is probably not in the list of hazardous items most people would come up with, there are hidden dangers in products as innocent-looking as cosmetics. Manufacturers often have more regard for how the product works than its safety. Chemicals called phthalates are added to some cosmetics, and those have been linked with reproductive disorders.
