Parabens and Carcinogens
I apologize if this is the wrong section. I just have an inquiry concerning research on the safety of parabens, such as methylparaben and propylparaben, in consumer products (particularly personal care products--not naturally occurring parabens in food). Are parabens potential carcinogens? I understand that the FDA has approved incorporation of parabens in products, and past studies have not directly linked parabens to breast cancer. However, are there any recent studies or recently published scientific articles (for this year) that focus on the safety/toxicity of parabens?
