Lipstick
Recently a brand called "Red Earth" decreased its price from $67 to $9.90.
It contained lead which causes cancer

The brands which contain lead are:
> > > 1. CHRISTIAN DIOR
> > > 2. LANCOME
> > > 3. CLINIQUE
> > > 4. Y.S.L
> > > 5. ESTEE LAUDER
> > > 6. SHISEIDO
> > > 7. RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
> > > 8. CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
> > > 9. MARKET AMERICA-MOTNES LIPSTICK.

The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer.
After a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S.L. lipstick
contained the most lead. Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed
to stay longer. If your lipstick does, it contains more lead. Here is a
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 color changes to black, then you know the lipstick
contains lead.

I've only heard that lipstick should infact reduce the risk of cancer..apparently less females than males get cancer on their lips (Due to the fact that lipsstick protects the skin against some harmly uv-rays etc).

Exactly, just like the 'deodorants that cause breast cancer'.
I have a feeling cheap brands try to bring down the expensive ones with this sort of methods.

i wouldnt be so sure.........
latex could be linked to cancer one day......
and if you're on the pill........that might too

and if you arent using contraception at all......then you might catch unprotected sex cancer

seriously though, they need to shut up about what causes it and give us a cure

i'll go one step further and say they need to find a way to prevent it from happening at all...like a vaccine or vitamin or something...

the incident of various cancers is increasing steadily...
