Research the Problem…Find the Solutions

Life is full of risks.  However, there are choices we can make in our everyday life to improve our quality of life and avoid needless risks. Because we're better informed today about various health risks many of us are exercising, and eating a healthier diet to avoid certain life-threatening diseases. Along those same lines, it is possible to make further inroads into our overall health by improving the health of our homes and eliminating household toxins that have been linked to cancer, Attention Deficit Disorder, asthma, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, infertility and more.

We need to take personal responsibility, be informed, and act immediately to protect our families and ourselves against harmful household toxins. Contrary to popular belief, adequate laws and regulations do not exist to protect the public from harm's way.

  • The FDA has limited power to regulate personal care. Differing from the extraordinary power they wield on food and drugs, the FDA cannot regulate a personal care product until after it's released.  Further more, they cannot require safety testing before a product is sold or order recalls of harmful products. Neither personal care products nor their ingredients are reviewed or approved by the FDA before they are sold.
     
  • We're using household products that pose a real danger to our families and environment.  NIOSH analyzed 2,983 chemicals in personal care products and found:
    • 884 to be toxic
    • 778 caused acute toxicity
    • 314 caused biological mutation
    • 218 caused reproductive problems
    • 146 caused tumors
  • We can't always rely on warning labels.  There is no law requiring manufacturers to list the exact ingredients on their labels. Frequently, they list chemicals by trade names unknown to the general public. Disclosure of specific inert ingredients (some of which are know carcinogens) is not even required.
     

Of the 17,000 chemicals found in everyday household products only 30% have been sufficiently tested for negative health effects and only 10% for their effect on the nervous system. And we're clueless when it comes to knowledge on the long-term effect of exposure to these toxins or to the mixing of chemicals within the body.

The good news is, there are responsible manufacturers that have developed products that are safer, more effective, and less expensive than the products you find in your grocery stores. If you are interested in finding out more about products that are safer for you and your family please contact us.
