 Let's remember to read the label
 of every product you buy or receive, or give away...
                   
 Food, Clothes, Soaps, Cleaners, Detergents, Cosmetics,
 Shampoos, House Paints, Disinfectants, Candles,
 Candies, Cold and Coughs syrups, Furniture and Toys, etc
 Many companies do not list all the chemical substances used in their products...                             

 We must be aware, Vigilant
 
Let's enjoy our health, the health of others, and the health of our environment ...
Mother Earth, Our Planet

                   


  Please Remember...

         It is estimated that  80% of all cancer comes from environmental pollution...

         Chemicals that come in contact with: Our Skin, Our Water, Our Air, Our Foods,

        Vapors from chemical products are harmful to your health !

        The chemicals listed here are found HARMFUL to our health and the environment

PFCs
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
This pesticide is found in products like toothpaste, cutting boards, yoga mats, hand soap, and cosmetics. It is a hormone disruptor and encourages the growth of drug-resistant bacteria.

Styrene
This petroleum by-product is 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
Chemicals linked to low testosterone, birth defects and cancer are used to soften vinyl plastic and can be found in products like school supplies and flooring.

Paraben
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 are lurking in couches, mattresses, electronics, appliances, and more.

BPA/BPS
These notorious 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
This known cancer-causing chemical is still used to produce building materials, clothing, cosmetics, and many household products.

PARABEN;  METHYL, PROPYL, ETHYL AND BUTYL PARABEN are used in 99% of all our cosmetic and care products, and now our food supply.

The good side is they kill bacteria and enzymes so the products won't break down and have longer shelf life.   The dark side is they are known to cause cancer.  They seep into the body tissues after being applied to your skin. In a recent study of breast tumors, paraben were found in every tumor they dissected.  Paraben can "act like" estrogen, which can then drive the growth of breast tumors.

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 and to have an adverse affect on the reproductive organs of young animals.
Think of the possible effects of this on their delicate systems: the brain and nerve, digestive, reproductive and others that are just forming.

SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE: This is a caustic chemical, 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 has been known to cause major problems in heart, liver, lungs and brain, flaky skin and dry hair. This substance is used regularly in clinical studies to irritate skin to test the effects of other substances.

FLUORIDE: A well known and controversial additive to toothpaste, community water systems and in many food and drinks to prevent tooth decay.  While the dental community in general has supported the addition of fluoride to decrease tooth decay, there are many new studies demonstrating the opposite is true.  Even the original promoter, a dentist, admitted under oath that this is not a remedy for tooth decay.  it has now been shown that fluoridation actually promotes an adverse health condition called Dental Fluorosis ( discoloration, brittleness and pitting of the teeth). Fluoride is labeled by the EPA as a poison.

 Fluoride 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.

ALUMINUM: 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 !

PLEASE READ THE LABELS OF EVERY HOUSEHOLD, CAR, OR OFFICE PRODUCTS BEFORE YOU USE THEM.  INFORM YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF THEIR POTENTIAL EFFECTS.  THE USE OF MANY OF THESE CHEMICALS IS BAND IN SEVERAL USA STATES AND IN OTHER COUNTRIES.

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 ) 

There are hundreds of  harmful and toxic chemicals being use in household products.
They are toxic in nature, their vapors irritates skin, eyes and tissues of the respiratory and digestive system, some are known to 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.

ALL THESE PRODUCTS CAN BE COMMONLY FOUND IN COSMETICS AND BODY/SKIN CARE PRODUCTS LIKE TOOTHPASTE, SHAMPOO, CONDITIONERS, SOAPS  DEODORANTS, MATTRESSES & BEDDING AND CLOTHES

Let  us create a better world for everyone, ourselves and the next generations!

Since 1980 I've been teaching and assisting persons suffering from Environmental Illnesses and Multiple Chemical Toxidity.

I  DO NOT Sell any products.  Since 1981, when I began my formal studies in Naturopathic Medicine, I've been cooperating in creating a safer environment. Toxic chemicals are making us ill and are destroying our Planet.

I reassure you that we will heal the discomforts by creating a Free of Toxins environment in our home, office, car or studios. With just one visit to your office, home or studio, I will be able to help you create a healthy environment. We can replace every toxic product with a non- toxic one to create a healthy environment. Remember I do not sell anything.
