Listen to Dr. Marchese share the toxins and chemicals that cause ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer is actually not a well-researched area in terms of environmental toxins, and I think that that’s because ovarian cancer is often diagnosed late, and so by the time a woman’s been diagnosed, they’re really just working on treatment and survival, getting surgically the ovaries removed and some treatment for the patient.
But the areas that have been studied for environmental toxins are solvents are linked to ovarian cancer. Solvents such as trihalomethanes, and trihalomethanes are found in the drinking water. It’s a byproduct from cities chlorinating their drinking water, and then also the solvents perchloroethylene which is a dry-cleaning fluid. So you have trichloroethylene, perchloroethylene, and trihalomethanes in terms of solvents in ovarian cancer, and then also dyes, such as hair dyes.
Hair dyes are actually linked to numerous cancers in women, and so I caution my patients when they go to the hair salon to cover up their gray to make sure they go to a non-toxic hair salon that uses an organic non-toxic hair dye.
