"In pregnancy, the optimal goal is to minimize the exposure of the growing fetus to toxins such as EDCs" Dr. Sachar.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
The World Health Organization (WHO) recently released a landmark study in which they identified that chemicals called Endocrine Disruptors (EDCs) are associated with health problems in children and later into adulthood. Dr. Vik Sachar, a High Risk Pregnancy Specialist, has created the world's first cosmetic line for use during pregnancy. EDCs have been associated with the development of breast cancer in women, prostate cancer in men, developmental effects on the nervous system in children, attention deficit /hyperactivity in children, non-descended testes in young males, and thyroid cancer. Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including cosmetics, plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, and pesticides.
"During pregnancy exposure of the mother to some chemicals, pollutants, and foods may impact a developing baby and have long-lasting effects on a child’s health even into adulthood," reports Dr. V. Sachar. "The best defense is to minimize the mother's exposure to EDCs during pregnancy."
Dr. Sachar has addressed this need by creating the world's first cosmetic line for pregnancy. "Our line is free of EDC's, and is safe and non-toxic for use in pregnancy. We wanted to ensure the safety of the pregnancy and give women a choice for their cosmetic needs."
Dr. Vik Sachar is a Double Board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist and High Risk Pregnancy Specialist. He trained at the prestigious University of Chicago, Pritzker School of Medicine. He is the Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at his hospital, and is regularly recruited for his expertise in High Risk Obstetrics and Quality Assurance.
