I have been sharing this research for 30 years. It is worth sharing again since new chemicals are added to the list.
Exposure to toxic environmental chemicals is a feature of everyday life across the planet.
Preventing exposure to environmental chemicals is a priority.
Remember to read the label of every product when buying, making or receiving a gift.
Food, Clothes, Soaps, Cleaners, Detergents, Cosmetics, Shampoos, House Paints, Disinfectants, Candles, Candies, Cold and Coughs syrups, Furniture and Toys, Carpets... They Might Contain Toxic Chemical affecting our heath !!!
We must be aware, Vigilant
Let's enjoy our health, the health of others, and the health of our environment: Our Planet
Let us create a better world for everyone, ourselves and the next generations!
Since 1980 I've been teaching and helping persons suffering from Environmental Illnesses and Multiple Chemical Toxidity.
I DO NOT SELL any products. I am an advocate for Clean Environment since 1980
80% of all cancer comes from Environmental Pollution...
Toxic Chemicals come in contact with: Our Skin, Our Water, Our Air, Our Soil, Our Food,
* Household cleaners and cosmetics containing TOXIC CHEMICALS are three times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air. *
The chemicals listed here are harmful to our health and the environment
PFCs are a class of carcinogenic chemicals used to repel oil and water from clothing, carpeting, furniture, food packaging, and non-stick surfaces on cookware
Triclosan Pesticide found in products like toothpaste, cutting boards, yoga mats, soap, and cosmetics. It is a hormone disruptor and encourages the growth of drug-resistant bacteria.
Styrene Petroleum by-product used to make Styrofoam™, plastics, rubber, and resins. It can put people at increased risk for cancer and other diseases.
Phthalic acid - Acid derived from benzene. These chemicals are linked to low testosterone, birth defects and cancer. They are used to soften vinyl plastic and can be found in products like school supplies and flooring.
Paraben have been identified as endocrine disruptor by the EU, Maine and Washington. They mimic the hormones that control functions like growth and sexual development.
Flame retardants Chemicals linked to cancer and damage to reproductive and nervous systems. Found in couches, mattresses, electronics, appliances, and more, clothes, furniture, linen...
BPA/BPS These hormone disrupting chemicals are found in polycarbonate plastics, plastic bottles, food containers, garden hoses, food-can linings, cash register receipts—and unfortunately—in our bodies.
Formaldehyde Known cancer-causing chemical is still used to produce building materials, clothing, cosmetics, furniture and many household products.
PARABEN; METHYL, PROPYL, ETHYL AND
BUTYL PARABEN Used in 99% of all cosmetic and care products,
and including food supply. Known to cause cancer.
PROPYLENE GLYCOL: This product is used in
anti-freeze, brake fluid, paint, floor wax, laundry detergent and
tobacco, COSMETICS, soft drinks, body lotions, etc
MINERAL OIL / BABY OIL : The main ingredient in baby oils and baby products such as baby wipes is BHT : BUTALYATED
HYDROXYTOLUENE, this product is manufactured by removing gasoline and
kerosene from cured petroleum. BHT is know to cause contact
dermatitis and is known to cause cancer.
SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE: A caustic chemical that burns or destroys things, especially
living cells, that allows products like shampoo to spread out and
penetrate more easily, and is also used in engine de-greaser, car wash
detergents, chemical cleaners, and body care products like: shampoos,
deodorants and almost all toothpastes. This additive can damage the
immune system, causes eye development retardation in children,
cataracts in adults. It is known to cause major problems in
heart, liver, lungs and brain, flaky skin and dry hair.
FLUORIDE: A well known and
controversial additive to toothpaste, community water systems and in
many food and drinks to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is labeled by the EPA as a poison.
has been linked to about 10,000 cancer deaths yearly. Some of the
other symptom associated with fluoride ingestion are: hip fractures,
bone cancer, thyroid cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies,
headaches, chronic fatigue, joint pain, muscle weakness, tingling in
the extremities, excessive thirst, loss of mental clarity, Down's
syndrome, genetic change to sperm cells, miscarriages, birth defects.
it is known to negatively affect the immune system and bones. Many of
these symptoms do go away when fluoride is not used.
Found in Anti-perspiration deodorants, antacids, baking powder,
self-rising flour, cake and pancake mixes, nondairy creamers, table
salts, processed cheese, and city water. Aluminum is known for its
effects on brain tissue. Research has shown it to be a major role in
Alzheimer's disease. Patients with Alzheimer's have been known to have
four times the normal concentration of aluminum in their brain cells.
There is no requirement for aluminum in the human body ! FORMALDEHYDE, BLEACH, SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE, AMMONIA, PHENOLS ( Room deodorizers, air fresheners, aromatic candles, car deodorizers, etc )
SODIUM/POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE ( lye, use in soaps, oven cleaners, drain cleaners, etc )
FLEA POWDER WITH CARBARYL,
DICHLOROPHENE, CHLORDANE AND OTHER CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS
PETROLEUM SOLVENTS, DIETHYLENE GLYCOL, PETROLEUM DISTILLATES and
MINERAL SPIRITS, CHLORINATED ALIPHATIC HYDROCARBONS, CHLORINATED
AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS, KETONES, AROMATIC HYDROCARBON THINNERS, ( Paint and paint thinners, floor and furniture cleaners, etc )
CALCIUM HYPOCHLORITE, ETHYLENE ( Algaecides, pool sanitizers )
SODIUM ACID SULFATE OR OXALATE OR HYPOCHORIC ACID ( Bathroom and toilet cleaners )
DIETHYLENE GLYCOL ( Window Cleaners )
Hundreds of harmful and toxic chemicals are being use in household products. They are toxic in nature, their vapors irritates skin, eyes and tissues of the respiratory and digestive system, some cause cancer to the lungs, stomach and urinary system. They cause nervous system damage as well as to the reproductive system. Research studies in University Laboratories and Medical Colleges in United State indicate that several of these Chemicals and Petroleum Products penetrate into the eyes, skin as well as brain, heart, liver and bladder tissues.
THESE PRODUCTS CAN BE COMMONLY FOUND IN COSMETICS AND BODY/SKIN CARE
PRODUCTS LIKE TOOTHPASTE, SHAMPOO, CONDITIONERS, SOAPS DEODORANTS, MATTRESSES & BEDDING AND CLOTHES

Since 1980 I've been researching and teaching about Environmental Illnesses and Multiple Chemical Toxidity. I also counsel those with EI and MCT and help them create a safe home environment. I DO NOT SELL any products. It is a joy to be able to help. I'm able to "spot" the products containing toxic chemicals and suggest solutions. Toxic chemicals are making us ill and are destroying our Planet.
Help us create a World Free of Toxic Chemicals in our home, office, car and studios. We can replace every toxic product with a non- toxic one to create a healthy environment. Remember I do not sell anything.
