For Our Children

For most of us, there is nothing we wouldn't do for our children if we could and if it was in their very best interest.  My parents sacrificed and worked and tried to give us the world.  And I think the majority of us are the same way for our kids.  But what if we were unknowingly destroying everything we were working so hard to protect and give them?  Would you tell me if you knew I was hurting my family unknowingly?  Then you understand why I am writing this.  To tell you what I know could help so many families, including yours.  Please read this post and know that I know you want the very best for your family.  I know I do.

The E.P.A reports the nation's worst pollution is inside our homes. A number of homes tested have toxic chemical levels 70 times higher inside the home than outside.

The President's Toxic Substances Strategy Committee warns 90% of all CANCERS are triggered by toxic chemicals in our environment.

---> Is it worth it to your family or even yourself to see what other products out are there other than Tide, Dawn, Cascade, and Tilex? I mean seriously people. Kids are the most precious thing we have on this Earth. We owe it to them.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission connects 150 MAN MADE CHEMICALS IN OUR HOME CARE PRODUCTS to Allergies, Birth Defects, Cancer, And Psychological Abnormalities. 

What are your favorite home care products?

Quaternium 15 (AKA Formaldehyde) which is a known carcinogen and causes dermatitis.

2. Johnsons Baby Conditioning Shampoo and Body Wash-
Quaternium 15 and FDC RED 40 which is also a known carcinogen.  Not supposed carcinogen, KNOWN carcinogen.

3. Tide and Cheer-
Sodium Silicate- Corrosive, can cause burns to the eyes and tissue damage to the skin.

4. Clorox-

5. Fantastik-

6. Windex- 
Butyl cellosolve and isobutane which are both neurotoxins

Dioxin- a carcinogen 500,000 times more deadly than DDT.

So, let me ask you.  Are you willing to look at something that is not poisoning your children or yourself?  Would you use something different if it were safer for your family and was higher quality than these "favorites" for the same price and cheaper?  I urge you to do so.  There are too many people suffering and not knowing the cause.  Mainly our children.
