    In May 2003, an email began making the rounds claiming that many of the most popular lipsticks on the market contain lead and will cause cancer. The email then offers a way to test lipsticks to see if they have lead

    The email is bogus or just among of urban legend...!?

    Something to consider next time you go shopping for Lipstick...!

    This comes from someone who works in the breast cancer unit at Mt. Sinai Hospital, in Toronto.

    From: Dr. Nahid Neman

    Recently a lipstick brand called 'Red Earth' decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90.

    It contained lead.
    Lead is a chemical which can cause cancer.

    The lipstick brands that contain lead are:
    RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
    CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)

    The higher the lead content, the greater the chance of causing cancer.

    After doing a test on lipsticks, it was found that the Y.S..L.lipstick
    contained the most amount of lead.

    Watch out for those lipsticks which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is because of the higher content of lead.

    Here is the test you can do yourself:

    1. Put some lipstick on your hand.

    2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.

    3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,

    Then you know the lipstick contains lead

    Please send this information to all your girlfriends, wives and female family members.

    This information is being circulated at
    Walter Reed Army Medical Centre

    Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, especially breast cancer.
