Back when the 20th century began the statistics showed a 1in80 chance of getting cancer, now 100 years later there is a risk of 1 in 3. Today there seems to be so many diseases, disorders and syndromes that we never heard of years ago.
I personally believe that the chemicals we are exposed to today play a large part in our ill health. When you think about it our food, our water and the air we breath has been poisoned.The things we put on our bodies are even poison. I would like you to take a look at your personal care products and check for the harmful chemicals that I am going to talk about. The first one is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) This is one of the most commonly used foaming agents.
It is found in shampoos, toothpaste etc. Propylene Glycol is found in most cosmetics and personal care products it is also used in brake and hydraulic fluid. The other ones to look out for are Alcohol it is found in mouthwashes, a survey in 1991 showed people with mouth, tongue or throat cancers had used more than 25% of mouthwash. Fluoride found in toothpaste is poisonous if used over long periods it accumulates in body tissue. Talc should never be used because of its carcinogenity and acute respiratory distress it can cause from inhalation.Formaldehyde is a preservative used in cosmetics, can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, coughing, asthma attacks, nausea, vomiting, skin rashes, nose bleeds , headaches and dizziness. Diethanlamine DEA: Triethanolamine TEA: Monoethanolamine MEA: are absorbed through the skin and accumulate in organs. They are skin and eye irritants.When they are found in products containing nitrates they can chemically convert to form nitrosamines which are potentially carcinogenic.Toluene a solvent found in nail polish, hair spray, hair gel can cause asthma attacks it is also a neurotoxin effects the nervous system. Can also cause liver damage.
PEG: Laureth (ethoxylated) may contain dioxane, which is potentially cancer causing, estrogen mimic and endocrine disrupter. You can do your own research on these chemicals and make your own decisions it is up to you to keep yourself and your family safe. I have found a company that provides safe products and I will continue to use these products. If everyone did this I honestly think it would make a difference to our health and environment.
