Chemicals in makeup may bring on early menopause study says
(KDVR) -- Ladies, a warning about what`s in your make up bag. New studies show chemicals used in many makeup products may bring on early menopause. Researchers found that many women exposed to 'phthalates' and other chemicals began menopause around age 49 rather than 51, the usual age. Previous research has linked early menopause with higher rates of bone loss, heart problems and strokes in women.
