Fran Drescher News Archive
Having a hard time sticking to your brand new exercise routine??
Ditch it if it isn't working! It's true, and here's what Fran Drescher has to say about it:
Living a healthy lifestyle means making informed decisions about what you are putting in or around your body. We don't know about you guys, but we don't want to put anything in our body that can cause cancer!
Fran Drescher's Cancer Schmancer movement is encouraging people to not only live a healthy lifestyle, but a preventative one too. In order to avoid a medical diagnosis that nobody ever wants to hear, we need to be mindful of the possibly carcinogenic chemicals and toxins that are found in products we use every single day!
With more and more chemicals being linked to deadly diseases, it's more important than ever to be an educated consumer and demand that our elected officials begin regulating manufacturers' unchecked use of dangerous ingredients.
Watch the video above for all the reasons why U should care about what goes into the products you use and support the movement at www.cancerschmancer.org!
FitPerez reader Lauren has been using antibacterial soap her whole life, but heard it may not be as healthy as it sounds. For advice she wrote cancer survivor Fran Drescher, asking:
I’ve always made sure to buy antibacterial soap for my home to keep my family healthy but now I’m hearing antibacterial soaps can do more harm than good? What’s the deal with antibacterial soap?
According to Fran:
Most antibacterial soaps contain an ingredient called Triclosan, which has been linked to cancer, thyroid disruption, skin irritation, liver and inhalation toxicity and antibiotic-resistant “superbugs”. Pretty scary stuff when you think about it. Triclosan can also be listed in the ingredients as Irgasan, Triclocarban, Biofresh, Ster-zac, Microban and Cloxifenolum. Check your products and see if it contains this chemical and to play it safe, just use plain ol’ soap and water.
Preach it, gurl!
Cancer survivor and early detection advocate Fran Drescher is one of the many people joining together to send New York Governor Andrew Cuomo a message — don't frack New York!
The Happily Divorced star and FitPerez contributor placed her John Hancock on a letter written by Heinz Award-winning biologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, which demonstrates links between the controversial energy-extraction process, known as hydrofracking, and cancer.
Mya from North Carolina has noticed that FitPerez health contributor Fran Drescher looks AMAZING these days! She not only wants to look as good as Fran, but feel as good too, writing:
Fran, you look better than ever! Any beauty secrets you can share to get us looking and feeling as great as you?
According to Fran:
Awww thanks doll! Here’s a few simple things I do.
I always make sure to remove my makeup at night to avoid any kind of blemishes. I also sleep on my back to avoid getting wrinkles from my pillow and sleep with a humidifier right next to my bed. Also, anything you put on your face whether it’s your wrinkle cream or your SPF, should also be used on your neck and décolletage which can suffer from the same aging effects as your face. Exercise and eat healthy!
