Every year, millions of people around the world get jabbed with Botox in hopes of maintaining a youthful look. But how much is too much? There is even a new term for people binging on Botox called, Wrinklerexia.
Breast cancer patients who apply moisturizers may be dosing themselves with estrogen without even knowing it, investigators reported at a breast cancer symposium in San Antonio. Women with breast cancer that is driven by estrogen (that is, estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer) should avoid externally applied estrogen to minimize the risk of a recurrence. Women without breast cancer are also at risk. If they use estrogen-containing topical moisturizers, they may be dosing themselves daily with estrogen for extended periods, thereby boosting their risk of breast cancer.
