Fact or Myth: Do Parabens Contribute to Breast Cancer?
The link between parabens (parahydroxybenzoic acid) and cancer can no longer be ignored. Widely used as a preservative, parabens are absorbed through your skin, blood and intestines. When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared parabens "generally safe for use," the FDA based their findings on oral consumption of parabens; it did not take into account how much exposure you truly have to these compounds through your skin.Parabens are known to have estrogenic properties and they mimic the natural estrogen in our bodies.

He tore the book in half, and he said, "eat this! for this is your knowledge, and study the other half." The book contained one thousand, one hundred and forty-four pages.
