How many chemicals are you exposed to per day?

A study by the Environmental Working Group looked at how many products and ingredients we are exposed to per day.

They found that the average woman uses 12 products containing 168 ingredients per day.

The average man uses 6 products containing 85 ingredients per day.

They also found that 12.2 million adults, which is 1 out of every 13 women, and 1 out of every 23 men, use products that are known or probable carcinogens every day.
