Are You Innocently Harming Your Family?
There are hidden hazards present in today's homes that may be a serious threat to your family's health. It's called "The Toxic Brew". Everyday household cleaners that you use regularly are full of chemicals. In fact, more than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced since WWII! (Create a Safe and Healthy Home , by Dr. Joyce. M. Woods, 1996). These chemicals have their costs. Many give off unhealthy fumes that can irritate the eyes, nose and lungs. Do you find that you have to spray and run from the room when cleaning your bathroom and shower because the smell is so bad? Some cleaners are corrosive and can harm your skin. Do you have to wear gloves to clean? Are your children allowed to touch the products? Do you feel safe letting them help you clean? Many leave behind TOXIC chemical residues. Children tend to touch everything and then put their hands in their mouths or pick up food dropped on the floor. You know how it goes, it's the "3 second rule"! They may be putting chemicals in their mouths along with their toys and food. When you "disinfect" their toys, are you sure it's safe for them to put them back in their mouths? What residue is on all the cups, bottles and dishes your family drinks from? Small amounts may not be immediately harmful but can accumulate to cause health problems over time. Many products contain ingredients that are suspected of causing cancer. The Consumer product Safety Commission connects 150 chemicals commonly found in our homes to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological disorders. Have you been curious about the increase in A.D.D. symptoms in children? How about the rise in asthma conditions?
Do we really have something to worry about?
- There are more than 3 million poisonings every year. Household cleaners are the #1 cause of poisonings in children and liquid dish soap is the leading cause
- There has been a 28% increase in childhood cancer, such as leukemia, since the addition of pesticides into household products.(Source: National Cancer Institute)
- A 15 year study found that women who worked at home had a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who had jobs outside the home. (Source: 17 year EPA study)
- A woman's fertility has also been negatively affected by the increased use of chemicals. In 1934 only 21 cases of endometriosis existed in the entire world. Today over 5 million women have this condition, which causes infertility in the US alone.
- In one decade, there has been a 42% increase in asthma (29% for men, 82% for women) (Source: Center for Disease Control)
Just reducing (not eliminating) environmental carcinogens alone, would save at least 50,000 lives from cancer annually. (Source: Dr. Lee Davis, former advisor to the Secretary of Health)
And we wonder why we have so much illness today?
Check out my favorite listing of harmful chemicals in everyday products at:
Manufacturers ARE NOT required to list the exact ingredients on a label. Chemical names are often disguised by using "trade names", so you may not recognize the chemical for what it truly is. Warning labels on containers refer only to toxic hazards from ingestion, however, only 10% of health problems from chemicals are caused by ingestion. 90% are caused by the inhalation of vapors and absorption of particles. (Please see the list of Common Household Products and Their Toxic Ingredients. You may find some of your favorite products listed there.)
What can you do about it?
FIRST, you can get the TOXINS out of your home! There are many safer products on the market... all you have to do is change brands. You may be able to find some at your local health food stores or even online. I can endorse a company* with great confidence that has served my family for 2 years now. It can provide you with a one stop shopping through a catalog or online system that offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on over 300 products for everyday use. Since I've become a preferred customer, we've seen many blessings, such as great prices and products delivered to me (which helps out a bunch!) and lots of help with chores around the house. I can feel safe when my children use our cleaning products, bathe, brush their teeth, wash their hair, eat off our dishes and generally live in a more non-toxic home and I'm able to help other families to do the same. My hope is that you will review the facts carefully, do the research, and prayerfully consider the changes you may like to make to provide a safer environment for your family as well.
NEXT, you can share this article with others or encourage them to do the research themselves. The important thing is to get the word out and promote change. If more people stop using these harmful products, perhaps we'll make an impact on the irresponsible manufacturers producing them. Be proactive--your family's health is worth it.
Finally, I'd love to schedule a short presentation for you, your family, friends or group and show you how simply you can make a practical and healthy change and perhaps help us to help more families to have safer products in their homes.
