Toxic Chemicals Lurking in Your Home

Why We Think Toxic Chemicals are Safe

Every day we are poisoned by an industry with no regard to human life. Ruthless chemical corporations and their shareholder’s profits have surpassed compassion for the health of you, your family and our planet. Our government has been corrupted and deceived; while immoral corporations control the purse strings and are free to poison unsuspecting citizens that have been brainwashed by an unscrupulous media whose sole intent is to sell their products. Toxic chemicals lurking in your home cause harm and potential death.

 

We have been programmed to believe the lie that we are protecting our homes when we use toxic chemicals to clean our counters, our windows and our floors. Dazzled by the bull, we buy into their colorful, joyful little diddies singing the praises of how clean and fresh our home, clothes or body will smell. Television theatrics right out of Edward Bernays' playbook.

Toxic Chemical Labels

Have we bothered to look at the labels?

Or do we blindly trust the product is safe as we spray the air with “nice smelling” chemicals and wipe counters with germ killing poisons designed to keep us safe. Safe from what? Those germ killing chemicals are weakening our immune systems and wreaking havoc on our bodies. 

 

It gets worse. Unregulated chemicals are not only in your cleaning products, but in your clothing, water, food, cosmetics, toys and patent drugs. They're present in most bath and skincare products and A LOT of other places you wouldn't imagine.

If you’re pregnant or have children at home it is crucial you become educated, take action, and understand which chemicals may not only disrupt your child’s development, but cause cancer and death as well. Children are especially vulnerable to chemicals that are hidden in foods. There are over 10,000 food additives in processed foods. And as many as 3,000 chemicals in a typical processed (junk) breakfast cereal. Another reason to eat organic. Organic may at times seem expensive, but can you really put a price on your life or the life of your child? If you don't pay now, you will pay later. And later may be too late. Visit here to understand which fruits & vegetables your child must avoid and why, if they are not organic.

Toxic Chemicals Lurking in Your Home 80,000 Chemicals

80,000 Unregulated Chemicals on the Market

Let’s talk about the over 80,000 chemicals on the market, of which only 200 have been tested. Many are registered with the EPA as toxic substances. And many of these hazardous cancer causing compounds are in your food and in your water.

 

Why is this allowed to happen without our consent?  Actually, that’s the paradox. Because you aren’t aware of the dangers and are being misled by nefarious companies advertising their products as the next best thing to sliced bread, you’ve bought it. Literally. And it’s harming you, your family and the planet.

Money Buys Votes

There is a powerful entity called the American Chemistry Council. It represents chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical conglomerates. Collectively, their money buys A LOT of votes in Washington. Remember the lobbyist? With their help, the chemical industry has successfully weakened and blocked science-based health, environmental and workplace protections at every level.

 

Many of the chemicals used in everyday products from shampoo to antibacterial soap are registered with the EPA as toxic chemicals. For instance, Triclosan, commonly used in antibacterial soap, is a registered pesticide. Sodium lauryl sulfate, a common ingredient in shampoo is also a pesticide and used in dog & cat flea shampoo.

READ THE LABEL ON EVERY PRODUCT YOU BUY!! 

If it’s in your home, throw it out!! AND please read the label and discard the toxic substance responsibly. It is illegal in many areas to throw toxic chemicals (and empty containers) in the garbage. Those destined for the landfill or ocean further contribute to poisoning the environment and pose a threat to human health.

  • Asthma

  • Breast Cancer

  • Brain Cancer and Childhood Cancers

  • Infertility and Difficulty Maintaining a Pregnancy

  • Learning and Developmental Disabilities

 

Follow this basic rule of thumb when it comes to dangerous, unregulated poisons and start cleaning your home of toxic chemicals today.
