Chemicals contained in perfumes and lotions for the body, accelerate puberty girls.

In particular, we are talking about diethyl (perfumery and cosmetics) and methylparaben (cream and lotion). It is believed that chemicals affect estrogen levels in the body girls.
The study also showed that puberty began early in girls if their mothers were exposed to triclosan, which is found in some antibacterial sanitizer and toothpaste.
The study’s lead author, Kim Harley (Kim Harley) from the University of California at Berkeley argues that chemicals in personal care products interfere with the natural hormones in our bodies.
The level of chemical substances measured in the urine of the mother between 14 and 27 weeks of gestation. As stated by scientists, in girls, whose mothers regularly used products with the above chemicals, menstruation began at four months ahead of schedule.
“Earlier puberty in girls increases the risk of mental health problems and risky behavior in adolescence, as well as cancer of the breast and ovaries in the long term,” — said the expert.
Recall, excessive moisturizing creams can harm the skin in the winter.
As reported by the portal “Znayu” that 95 % of cosmetic products contain at least one ingredient that is causing the Allergy.
