In brief: A patient once asked

me about a cosmetic she was using .
.she was in a panic since some web site had pointed out that a study with MICE showed toxicity and tumor forming effects of one of the chemicals found in extremely small quantities in that cosmetic. I told the patient "every morning look at yourself in the bathroom mirror and if you see a mouse STOP using that cosmetic! BEWARE FAKE NEWS!
