The Absolutely 12 Worst Cancer Causing Products In Your Home

The modern era and the advancements in the field of technology have made significant changes in our life and we are constantly increasing the risk of numerous diseases with the daily use of dangerous chemicals and toxins as well as eating GMO food. Even worse, we are not even aware of the risks we are exposed to, as we believe the labels on the products we buy and keep using them over and over again.

Some of these products are even popular brands such as Colgate, Palmolive and Ajax, which is a popular cleaning solution in many parts of the world. However, these products contain a toxic compound called silica which is linked to skin, lung and eye irritation, and is considered highly carcinogenic.
