  1. Campaign Summary: Internet is full of information about toxic substances that may be found in personal care and cosmetics, but I have heard nothing of any product ever banned from the market. Many substances that have been approved years ago today are banned, but there might still be many products with the banned substances today as there is no law to remove the many years ago made products, despite proven toxic by today'ss standards. Regulatory bodies often come to conclusion that a particular substance is not studied sufficiently to conclude about its safety. Is this a decent method of safety control or just a way to fool the public? What are the opinions of scientists on the long lists of personal care and cosmetics ingredients that are discussed as dangerous by public, but allowed by regulations? Some examples are: Acrylates, benzophenone, formaldehyde and so on. Please screen the personal care goods for toxic substances (in your opinion) and advise if there are any that include banned (by law) ingredients.
  2. Dehydration: a fast route to short life

    I knew that if you drink insufficient amount of water, it may affect metabolism and result in problem skin, but I couldn't imagine what diseases it can lead to. Fortunately, I have already started to drink 1-1.5l of water per day. 
  3. It's definitely a valuable review! Anything I read before was either simple for understanding but without scientific justification, or scientifically sound but too complicated for understanding. I'm trying to promote healthy lifestyle in my family and BBQ is the favorite meal of my parents, they completely deny the fact that it is dangerous. Hope this article will change their attitude. 
  4. Gain weight by going 'diet'

    Things are not so good as you think. Most consumers are still not aware about real effect of 'diet' drinks and about many other hazards they can meet in their food. Especially when it comes to developing countries.
