European women warned off make-up amid growing fears of harm to unborn

Pregnant women are being warned off beauty products amid fears they could lead to birth defects.
Growing concerns over the effects of chemicals such as parabens, commonly used in cosmetics as a preservative, and phthalates, used in hairspray, have led to calls for a new EU-wide cosmetics labelling system.

The move follows the publication of a study which found that women exposed to high levels of hairspray during pregnancy were twice as likely to have babies born with hypospadias, a condition in which the urinary tract grows on the underside of the penis.
High levels of phthalates, also used to soften plastics such as PVC, have been found to affect hormone levels, while parabens have been the subject of concern since 2004, when a study claimed to have detected parabens from deodorants in cancerous breast tissue.
The French government announced last week that the country’s health authorities were considering a labelling system for cosmetics that would indicate whether or not products were safe for pregnant women.
But the UK government said that the EU should address the issue as a whole, adding it to a range of changes currently being made to the European Cosmetics Directive.
Professor Paul Elliott, who led the Imperial College study into the use of hairspray during pregnancy, backs the introduction of a labelling system.
He told the Independent on Sunday: ‘Labels enable people to make informed choices. In the vulnerable period of pregnancy, it makes sense for people to reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals.

‘It is part of a broader discussion about minimising chemical exposure in early pregnancy.’
Professor Steve Field, chairman of the Royal College of General Practitioners, added:
‘Women who are planning to conceive or who are in the first three months of pregnancy should look at what they are using.

‘The cosmetics industry needs to look at this and clearly label their products. Anything like this raises concerns, but I don’t think people should panic.’

Botox mom loses custody of her daughter!

I am happy to report that the mother who gives her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections AND waxes her legs and pubic area has LOST CUSTODY OF HER DAUGHTER. Amen and hallelujah!

The California mom who admitted to injecting her 8-year-old daughter with botox for a kiddie beauty pageant is now being investigated by the San Francisco Human Services Agency.

“It’s pretty unusual for a mom to be injecting an 8-year-old with botox and certainly is grounds for an investigation,” said Trent Rohrer of the San Francisco Human Services Agency.

Mom Kerry and daughter Britney, appeared on “Good Morning America” Thursday defending the 8-year-old pageant contestant’s use of botox.

“I just, like, don’t, like, think wrinkles are nice on little girls,” Britney said.

Britney admitted it hurt to get the injections on her face, but said she was used to the pain.

The admission sparked an uproar online, in the medical community and by child advocates.

Kerry told ABC News that she does not believe she’s endangering Britney’s health and that her daughter asked for the injections. Kerry, who asked that her family’s last name not be used, is a part-time aesthetician and no stranger to Botox herself, having done the treatment on her own face.

“Like I said, I do the botox myself. It’s safe,” Kerry said.

“She had watched me do it before,” said Kerry. “So when we first did it, she was fine with it.”

Kerry wouldn’t reveal who provides her with the Botox. Kerry typically administers the Botox to Britney through a total of five shots, in three different locations on her face.

And ABC news is reporting that this horrible mother has lost custody of her daughter.

ABC News has learned that a Bay Area mother, who was giving her 8-year-old daughter Botox injections, no longer has her child living in her home.

According to a source very close to the case, 8-year-old Britney Campbell is “doing well.”

Britney’s mother, Kerry Campbell, is being investigated by Child Protective Services. The Campbells were interviewed last week by ‘Good Morning America.’
