This is by far my favorite!

¡        According to the EPA, more than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced in the last 60 years.  Less than 2% of these chemicals have been tested for toxicity, mutagenic, carcinogenic, or birth defects
¡        80% exposure to pesticides happens inside; indoor air quality is 5 times worse than outdoor air quality
¡        FDA regulates food and drugs but VERY LITTLE cleaning, personal care and cosmetics
¡        Formaldehyde, phenol, benzene, toluene, xylene are found in common household cleaners and cosmetics
¡        These chemicals are cancer causing and toxic to the immune system

According To The National Cancer Prevention Coalition… These are the Top 6 Cancer Causing Products in the average home!
1. Johnson’s Baby Powder
2. Crest Tartar Control Toothpaste
3. Clairol Hair Products
4. V05 Hair Conditioners
5. Ajax Cleaner
6. Lysol Disinfectant

1 in 3 women with cancer, 1 in 2 men in their lifetime- 36 children diagnosed a day according to American Cancer Society
    ---60-70% all cancers preventative with diet and toxin avoidance
#1 killer of Americans is heart disease- someone dies of heart attack every 36 seconds in USA- “Preventing Heart Disease Jan 2010 ”
23.5 million Americans Auto-Immune Diseases (MS, Parkinsons, Lupus, Fibromyalgia etc)
Autism fastest growing developmental disability --”Autism Society of America ”
Asthma has increased 600% since 1980- 20million Americans- leading chronic illness among children-- “The Canadian Lung Association”

-Only 1 in 5 Americans eat 5 servings of vegetables and fruits per day
-According to the USDA, it would require over 70 servings of spinach today to equal the nutritional value of one serving of spinach in 1949 since our soils are so mineral deficient

Chlorine Bleach:
-300,000 times stronger as a human carcinogen than DDT
-Last year, over 25,000 children were exposed to or poisoned by household chlorine bleach- Source: US EPA Pesticides: topical & chemical fact sheet

409: Linked to cancer, reproductive disorders, kidney and liver damage--- fumes linger in air 72hours after spraying.

Lysol: All Lysol products are registered pesticides

Tide Laundry Detergent: Contains trisodium nitrilotriacetate, a carcinogen  ---wikicancer.org
Cascade: Outlawed in 16 states in the US because of the damage phosphates have done to our waterways- far more than any oil spill in US history

Personal Care Products:
-Quaternium 15 is a Formaldehyde releaser- known under 30 different trade names
-9 out of 10 products on store shelves contain it---- Formaldehyde is a Type A Carcinogen (cancer causing) used as a preservative
     …it is in Johnson and Johnson Baby Shampoo, Aveeno, Eucerin, Lubriderm and majority of cosmetics.

Banned in Europe and Japan because we have 0 regulation and many products in US contain Formaldehyde, Mercury etc….
