This really frightens me

  • In 1901, cancer was rare: 1 out of 8,000.  Since the Industrial Revolution, the cancer rate today has risen to 1 in 3 and by the year 2020, it will be 1 in 2.                                                                        [Source: The American Cancer Society]

 The top 6 cancer-causing products (called the “Dirty Dozen”) in the average home include the following:

  • Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder w/Talc
  • Crest Tartar Control Toothpaste
  • VO5 Hair Conditioner
  • Clairol Nice-n-Easy Hair Color
  • Ajax Cleanser
  • Lysol Disinfectant

  • Liquid dish soap is the leading cause of poisonings in the home for children under the age of six (over 2.1 million accidental poisonings per year).  Most brands of liquid dish soap contain formaldehyde and ammonia.

 

  • Of the chemicals found in personal care products:
  • 884 are toxic
  • 146 cause tumors
  • 218 cause reproductive complications
  • 778 cause acute toxicity
  • 314 cause biological mutations
  • 376 cause skin and eye irritations

This is WHY we choose to buy our products from a responsible manufacturer that does not use harsh chemicals of any kind. 

 Think before you buy any product on store shelves just because it’s on sale or because you like the commercial you see on TV.  There are NO government regulations on any of these types of products…  that is just wrong.   We are given a false sense of security by creative marketing.  Buyer beware!
