Chemicals are found everywhere, from mattresses to makeup to beauty products. Our advice? Be aware of where they are lurking and eliminate them one by one!
Toxins are a tremendous burden. They are a threat to the body’s and environment’s ecosystems. Many toxins have been studied and many have not, so the burden is a much bigger issue than we read in the research. For the most part, we can’t see toxins. We can’t hear toxins. We often can’t smell them. But they are still pervasive and deadly.
Why do we recommend eliminating toxic products from our lives? Simply, they cause disease:
- Studies have linked pesticides to cancer, neurological and reproductive issues.
- Environmental toxins cause immune and endocrine dysfunction.
- Chronic low exposure to chemicals causes weight gain.
- Even small amounts pose a serious threat to children’s health.
