Fifty chemicals, that we take daily, can cause cancer in a particular combination, warn scientists from London.
No study has so far considered the danger of the combination of several chemicals. This was done by a working group of 174 scientists from 28 countries that established a link between some chemicals and the disease.
Fifty chemicals, which have an insignificant effect on the body individually, are considered dangerous when combined with other chemicals.
Then they cause changes, that can lead to cancer. These include triclosan chemicals, laundry products, phthalates found in plastics, titanium dioxide used in sunscreen creams and acrylamide found in french fries.
Accumulated in our body, they may be the cause of the global cancer epidemic that is observed globally, experts say.
