Shocking, turns out shampooing every day can increase the risk of you getting diabetes


IllustrationIllustration - Poor diet and lack of exercise are the main risk factors for type 2 diabetes that many people already know. Maybe it's not imagined that shampooing is also associated with the risk of diabetes.

It is phthalates, the chemical content that we can find in shampoo, which has recently been linked to various health problems. The same compound is also found in plastic and children's toys.

A study at the University of Novi Sad in Serbia said that people who have high levels of phthalates in their blood have a greater risk of suffering obesity and diabetes. They are even more at risk of suffering liver damage and metabolic disorders.

But experts note that the sample used in this study is very small. Need further research to make sure to produce stronger conclusions. "It doesn't provide enough information to support this result" critics of Prof. Rob Chilcott, a toxicologist from the University of Hertfordshire, quoted from Dailymail.

Phthalates are additional ingredients used in plastic production. In addition, it is also found in various daily items of bottled water and perfume. For a long time, this compound has been linked to various health problems, including fertility.
