Is My Family Chemically Healthy?

Today the average household has more chemicals in it than a chemistry lab did in 1900. Our Homes have become toxic dumps.

In 1900 1 out of 8,000 people were diagnosed with cancer
In 1997 1 in 3
In 2002 1 in 2
It is estimated that in the year 2030 everyone could be diagnosed with cancer

What brought about the huge change??
"Cancer and health risk experts say mainstream cosmetics and personal hygiene products pose the highest cancer risk to the general public, higher than smoking."
Cancer Coalition June 17, 2002

Latest research shows that a small percent of cancer is genetic. Environment is principle role in contracting cancer. Most cancer is caused by exposure to toxic chemicals. Especially true then long term exposure; built up over time.

Primary exposure
Through skin absorption - most effective, potent and therefore most toxic. An ingredient exposed to the skin will reach every organ in the body in a few minutes.

Household Products
Many ingredients in our household cleaning products, personal care products, and cosmetics are derivatives of motor oil or petro chemicals. Household products do not require labeling of ingredients. Many times we do not even know what is in a product that we bring into our home.

Laundry Detergent and softeners - daily exposure, primary exposure -through skin.
Softener sheets - very toxic, highest toxicity rating.
Furniture polish - very toxic,
Bath scrubs - residue in tub.

Personal Care Products
No safety testing is required on personal care products
Not all natural ingredients are safe
Not all chemicals are harmful
95% of personal care products contain mineral oil
Mineral oil is a derivative of petroleum/motor oil and is found to be a carcinogen.
Many personal care products contain: Mineral oil, petroleum, acetone, butane, animal fats and by-products.
Bar soaps have been tested to have the PH toxicity of a perm.
