    Beware of makeup, it can trigger early menopause

    Chemicals found in makeup, hairspray and food packaging are causing women to hit menopause early, researchers warn. Researchers at Washington University, Missouri found that a group of chemicals known as pthalates found in plastics, cosmetics, household products and food packaging may be disrupting women's reproductive systems, including their ovaries, and leading to early menopause.

    Pthalates are already thought to raise the risk of cancer, diabetes and obesity.
    The study found that those exposed to high doses have been found to go through menopause almost two and a half years before other women, the Daily Mail reported. In some cases, these chemicals may be causing women to stop having periods 15 years too soon, say scientists.

    The study looked at the levels of pthalates in the blood or urine of 5,700 women. Those with the highest amounts were found to have gone through the menopause an average of 2.3 years before the others. The typical age of the menopause is 51, so women exposed to the highest levels were hitting it aged 49.

    Dr Natalia Grindler found that some women may be going through the menopause 15 years early, in their mid-thirties.

    An early menopause is linked to higher rates of strokes, heart disease, bone problems and fatal brain haemorrhages.
