A recent study, published in peer-review journal The Prostate reveals that arsenic and estrogen chemical exposure, at ‘safe’ levels, can cause increased cancerous cell growth and transformation when combined.
While it is known that the two chemicals can cause cancer individually, in small doses the chemicals have thought to pose no threat to human life. However, the Texas Tech scientists behind the research have highlighted the danger of their combination, particularly concerning prostate cancer cell growth. The effect of the cocktail of toxins had previously been untested, the research further highlights the danger of testing toxins individually when regulating chemicals and chemical exposure.
