All the Inventions by the SIXTH sense are harmfull and destructive. The only way
is to lead our life what is bestowed, by limiting our wants by understanding and
respecting the 'LAWS' of 'NATURE' the 'SUPREME'.

Body has an extremely efficient house keeping mechanism, unmatched by any human mind. Any foreign body (=botox, any where in the body) is either digested or thrown out or body tries to over grow and kill the competition from foreign body. Once the body forgets to stop competing, the result is known by the name CANCER

No scientific research proved that BOTOX is carcinogenic. Botox can be safely used for many diseases apart from beauty enhancing treatment

BOTOX Injections (Botulinum Toxin A)
What is Botox?
BOTOX is the commercial tradename for Botulinum Toxin Type A.
Botulinum Toxin is derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum.
When injected into muscles, Botulinum Toxin has a local effect. It blocks transmission between the nerve endings and muscle fibres around the injection site to cause weakness of the nearby muscle.
What is Botox used for?
Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It is typically used in people aged 18 to 65.
Botox works by blocking nerve transmission to temporarily reduce the contractions of the facial muscles that cause frown lines.
It has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, and botox injections are becoming increasingly popular.

I dont think so, because BOTOX is also an effective medicine for Dystonia, disease caused by development of spasm in muscles. Most neurologists opt BOTOX to treat dystonia.

Yes, Definately it causes Cancer. Cancer of a Rare kind, People who go for Botoxing are affected by "Want To Look Good and Young All The Time" kind of cancer. Who likes the look of a Freezed face(ex Arnold Schwaznegger)...?
