There are 100,000 chemicals on the market today. The Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) of 1976 grandfathered them in. What does that mean to you? Simply put, these chemicals have not had any safety testing and we know very little information about their side affects. Dr. Samuel Epstein, chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition says “it is unthinkable that women would knowingly inflict such exposures on their infants and children and themselves if products were routinely labeled with explicit warnings of cancer risks.” BUT THEY ARE NOT LABELED! Since the 1940’s, prostate cancer is up 200%. Thyroid cancer up 155%. Brain cancer up 70%. And the American Cancer Society estimates a 50% rise in cancer rates by 2020. It’s no wonder that the quality of air inside our homes is 5-7 times more toxic than the air outside.
So what happens when your body is chemically overloaded? You may see it in something as catastrophic as cancer. But most of us feel it in other ways: lethargy. Inability to focus. Trouble sleeping. Chronic inflammation. Unexplained pain. Skin issues-adult acne. Hot flashes. Stress. If you face any of these issues, it’s time to ditch the chemicals. YOU CAN control what you allow in your home.
