We Have a Law That Protects Us....Don't We? NO-We do NOT!!

Here is why so many people and children are so sick!! This about it!! Were people and children ALWAYS as sick and riddled with health problems? NO-they were not!

When we pick up a product at the local grocery store, most of us like to think we are getting something that has been tested and proven to be safe. After all, we have laws to protect our health and safety, DON’T WE?
Actually, the government has very limited power to regulate manufacturers, or require testing of their products.
The closest thing we have to a regulatory agency for the personal care industry is the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), and their power is extremely limited. Here are some disturbing facts:
• A product that kills 50% of lab animals through ingestion or inhalation can still receive a “non-toxic
• Of the 17,000 chemicals that appear in common household products, only 30% have been adequately
test for their negative effects on our health; less than 10% have been tested for their effects on the
nervous system; and nothing is known about the combined effects of those chemicals when mixed
within our bodies.
• No law requires manufacturers to list the exact ingredients on their package label.
• The FDA cannot require companies to do safety testing on their personal care products before they are
sold to the public.
• The FDA cannot require recalls of harmful personal care products from the marketplace.
• The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) analyzed 2,983 chemicals used in
personal care products. The results were as follows:
884 of the chemicals were toxic 314 caused biologic mutation
218 caused reproductive complications 778 caused acute toxicity
148 caused tumors 376 caused eye and skin irritations
Although it would take an entire book to cover all the ingredients commonly used in household and
personal care products, let me tell you about just one as an example, FORMALDEHYDE.
Formaldehyde is used frequently in both cleaning and personal care products because it is a cheap
preservative. The following information is taken from a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) which, by law,
must be supplied to anyone who uses a chemical product in the workplace. The MSDS for formaldehyde
warns: “Suspected carcinogen; May be fatal if inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through skin; causes burns;
inhalation can cause spasms, edema (fluid buildup) of the larynx and bronchi, and chemical pneumonitis;
extremely destructive to tissue of the mucous membrane.”
All these symptoms and more are caused by formaldehyde. Yet manufacturers can put formaldehyde in
shampoo and not list it as an ingredient! You will be shocked to learn that formaldehyde is a common
ingredient in baby shampoo, bubble bath, deodorants, perfume, cologne, hair dye, mouthwash, toothpaste,
hair spray and many other personal care items. The amount of formaldehyde in many of these products is
slight but the risk is there. If all cancers start from the abnormal growth on one cell, then why allow any
amount into or onto your body?

If you would like to know more-contact me and I can share! It does not cost you one single penny to find out a few facts that could change your lives forever. I am so glad that I actually stopped, looked, and listened. I would still be dealing with constant sickness with my family and running a never ending rat race to my corporate career, missing out on my own children growing up. Now, we are at home full time(me and my husband) not missing one thing in our children's lives and loving having complete financial freedom. Ask for more information........
