Believe it or not, despite the shiny and glamurous commercial coverage, more than half of the products we use on a daily basis around our households are packed with properties which have been directly and indirectly linked to the world’s deadliest diseases – cancer.
In order to prove this theory and the danger that these products pose, a study was conducted and samples were taken from hundreds of different everyday cooking, cleaning and household items to prove that they contain harmful materials and properties that damage our health.
Thanks to this study, we were able to determine the top 12 cancer-causing products that you are not aware of:
