Fran Drescher Explains Why Chemicals NEED To Be Regulated

| Filed under: Fran DrescherHealthCancer

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!

Fran Drescher Shares The Disturbing Dangers Of Antibacterial Soap

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:

Hi Fran,

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:

Hi Lauren,

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.
