Many American women couldn’t imagine life without makeup, hair spray, lotions, you name it.
But could chemicals in makeup, plastics, and other household products be contributing to early menopause?

They found evidence that women with the most chemical exposure experience menopause two to four years earlier than women with lower exposure to those same chemicals
Texas OB/GYN Dr. Pari Ghodsi joined us via Skype to talk about this study.
