What ARE these chemicals doing to people? Anyone else with sensitivity to them?
WHY DO YOU STILL USE THESE KINDS OF PRODUCTS? Do you think they smell good? If so, would you be willing to double the amount of soap and dryer sheets you currently use?"
Over 150 chemicals commonly found in homes have been linked to cancer, allergies, birth defects, and psychological abnormalities. (Consumer Product Safety Commission)
"Approximately 70,000 chemicals are now in commercial production, many of which are used in household products. Many of these chemicals accumulate in the human body and cause cancer and other diseases, yet they have been inadequately tested or remain completely untested for their safety. About 600 of these chemicals are KNOWN to cause cancer." Cancer Prevention Coalition
"Household cleaning products are among some of the most toxic substances we encounter daily. In one study conducted over a 15 year period, women who stayed home all day had a 54 percent higher death rate from cancer than woman who had jobs away from the home." Nancy Green, Author, "Poisoning Our Children"
The EPA has reported that nearly 30 cancer-causing chemicals were detectable in the fat tissues of literally every American today. Just reducing (not eliminating) environmental carcinogens alone would save at least 50,000 lives from cancer annually. (Dr. Lee Davis, former advisor to the Secretary of Health).
