If breast cancer is ER+, wouldn't it help to avoid phthalates?
If your breast cancer is ER+, wouldn't it help to avoid phthalates? I'm not able to find info on this. In fact, not sure which phthalates increase estrogen and which decrease it. My concern is phthalates in maxi-pads, which I've used every day for almost 20 Years, for leaky bladder. Almost 90% of pads contain phthalates. It hasn't been long since they were found to be in maxi-pads, but I'm very hungry for any research as it comes out. The skin where the pads go is thin. I'm bound to have absorbed a lot of phthalates through this route.
