It is almost spring and our thoughts turn to warmer weather,
opening up the windows and letting all the winter dirt out of our homes!
I long for the day to feel that warm breeze flowing through my windows
while I sip coffee in my freshly cleaned home.
Yep, I am one of those people, one of those that is just a little obsessed with
my home being in order and clean, clean, clean!
I feel as if my entire world is in disarray if my home is not clean.
It physically makes me ill and off balance per say.
Along with that, since my Lupus has progressed I had to find ways to clean
that were easier and safer.
I say safer because I started researching toxins in the home
and was in complete shock over what I was subjecting my family to by
simply cleaning the house.
I thought I was making our home healthier by keeping it clean and smelling
like lemons and fresh summer breezes but in fact I was just
spreading toxins all over the place :(
Here is what I found:
Household pollutants negatively impact our health and our environment.
Most of the chemicals in cleaning and personal care products
that people are exposed to every day
have never been assessed for their impact on human health.
Indoor air pollution is one of the top five highest ranking
environmental health problems in America
with chemical levels up to 70 times higher than outside! 70 times!
Research and information on the health effects of manufactured chemicals
has not kept pace with their development and use.
- In the last 50 years, the global production and use of manufactured chemicals has increased substantially. More than 80,000 new chemicals have been created.
- Indoor air pollution is one of the top five highest-ranking environmental health problems in America.
- Evidence shows homes have chemical levels up to 70 times higher than outside.
- Most of the chemicals that people are exposed to every day have never been assessed for their impact on human health.
- Parabens utilized in personal care for decades have been shown to have potential harmful effects.
What we know is the harm chemicals have on humans is extensive. Most concerning are the growing links to chemicals that surround us in everyday life. They are linked to serious diseases such as birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities. Many today believe the extensive use of chemicals indoors contributes to many of our ‘modern’ diseases such as allergies and asthma.
So what I did next is find products that would improve quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning. As well as, make cleaning faster and more cost effective than traditional cleaning products.
