The toxic envioroment that we are creating inside our home

We can't help but notice all the signs of deterioration in our environment. Changing weather patterns, fish dieing in our lakes and rivers. We as individuals have very little control over what is put in our air or water or even the use of pesticides. One thing we can control, and absolutely need to give our FULL Attention to, are the every day products we buy and bring into our homes.

There is talk in the news daily about the dangers of toxic chemicals in our personal use products like deodorant, shampoo, body wash and toothpaste etc. as well as in the cleaners and laundry care products we buy, even the cosmetics and skin care products we use on a daily basis.

Did you notice that diseases that used to occur later in life are now appearing at younger ages. Diseases that used to be rare are more frequent.
For example: there has been a 28% increase in childhood cancer since the addition of pesticides into household products.

From 1975-2000 the incidence of childhood cancer has escalated to alarming proportions warns the Cancer Prevention Coalitions new report. Childhood cancers have increased by 32%, acute lymphocytic leukemia 57%, brain cancer 50%, kidney cancer 48% and bone cancer 29%.There is a increased risk for leukemia in children where parents have used pesticides in the home or garden before the children's birth. Cancer is now the #2 killer of children-second only to accidental poisonings.

Over 7 million poisonings happen each year. 75% of these happen to children under 6 years of age.

Household bleaches which claim to disinfect are classified as pesticides under the Federal Hazardous Substance Act. Inadvertently mixing bleach with other cleaners that contain ammonia produces a toxic chloramine gas. These toxic gases can cause coughing, loss of voice, a feeling of burning or suffocation and even death.

The consumer Product Safety Commission reports that 150 chemicals found in the home have been connected to ALLERGIES, BIRTH DEFECTS, CANCER and PSYCHOLOGICAL disorders.

-Women who work in the home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women that work outside the home. There has been a 26% increase in breast cancer since 1982. BREAST CANCER is the Number 1 killer of women between the ages of 35-54. Primary suspects are LAUNDRY detergents, household cleaners and pesticides.
-There has been a call from the US/Canadian Commission to ban bleach in North America. Bleach has been linked to the rising rates of breast cancer in women, reproductive problems in men and learning and behavioral problems in children.
-Since 1980, asthma has increased by 600%. The Canadian lung Association and the Asthma Society of Canada identify common household cleaners and cosmetics as triggers.
As more toxic chemicals have been introduced to our everyday environment in greater amounts over the last 20-30 years, the level of toxins stored in adipose tissues(fat cells) of our bodies have risen. Bio accumulation studies have shown that some toxins store in our bodies for life. Greater and greater amounts are being stored at younger ages. One study showed that in the fat of 100% of the people tested was 1,4 Dichlorobenzene, a chemical found in most household deodorizers and room air fresheners.

The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health(NIOSH) analyzed 2983 chemicals used in personal care products.

The results were as follows: 884 are toxic
146 cause tumors
218 cause reproductive complications
314 cause biological mutations
376 cause skin and eye irritations
The "Dirty Dozen" Consumer Products Include
-Johnson and Johnson Baby powder with Talc
-Crest Tartar Control tooth paste
-Lysol Disinfectant
-Ajax Cleanser
-Clairol Nice'n Easy Hair Colour
-Vo5 Hair Conditioner
The following are just a few that are SO TOXIC that they should be disposed of in a toxic waste dump
-floor care products
-furniture products
-window cleaner
-bug spray
-nail polish remover
(according to Water Pollution Control Federation).

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 inhalation of vapors and absorption of particles.

As more and more people experience first hand the many obvious signs of chemical exposure such as skin irritations, rashes, headaches,breathing conditions to name just a few, many are turning to more natural sources.

The conversion rate is still relatively low due to safe, non-toxic versions of laundry care, cleaners, personal care products,skin care and cosmetic products is just way too much for the average budget to handle. Often double, triple or more the current pricing.

SOLUTION- We found a company that we converted from all these harmful chemical versions to safe, very effective products that are healthy for you and actually saved us money.

We have now added this to our list of OPTIMUM HEALTH SOLUTIONS.
