There are chemicals lurking in your home
You may think that you’re being safe, but safe isn’t always enough. Most homes still have plastics, even if they have gotten rid of most of them. I still see a lot of children eating out of plastic containers, and plastic water bottles, canned foods, and handling receipts. All of these things are linked to BPA (Bisphenol A).
What is this BPA we’ve been hearing so much about. It’s what we call and endocrine disruptor. It can interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce some adverse developmental, reproductive, nuerological and may do substantial damage to a developing fetus. But BPA is not alone in the endocrine distruptors around your house hold.
These lurking culprits of unhealthy body systems can also be found in detergents, clothing and furniture with flame retardants, foods, toys and cosmetics and other personal care products. This can come from our own children’s car seats and they can alter children’s brain development and cause learning and behavioral problems.
This chemical warfare on our families has to end.
We must get rid of the as much of the dangerous chemicals that we can from our homes, and protect our children by using healthy products, chemical avoidance, supplementing with helpful methylation/detoxification organics and start our children off with a non-toxic breast feeding experience. Get rid of the plastic shower curtain and don’t “stain treat” your carpet (there are many natural alternatives that will get the stains out without having chemicals for our kids to run around on). Make sure you are using low VOC or no VOC paints, and seal old paint with a non-toxic sealant. Grow your garden organically, and think about the quality of the furniture you purchase, and what it has been treated with. Avoid cosmetic products that are not organic and certified safe, ESPECIALLY those with the ending in -paraben on the ingredient label.
