The latest research is something to take seriously.! Toxins are playing a role in our health and are particularly being linked to cancers.! In 1900, between 1 in 1000 to 1 in 100 people could expect to have cancer in their lifetime.! In the year 1997, it was 1 in 3 people; and in 2002, it’s 1 in 2 people in America.! The predictions are that by the year 2030, every American can expect to contract cancer in their lifetime! Scary stuff!

Prevention and education/awareness are key! I am so into this and want to share it with you to help educate you about toxic substances that may be in your home or in products you use- not to mention animal testing and ingredients! There are many books and other resources available on this topic and I encourage you to conduct some of your own research.
The Personal Care and Cosmetic Industry cannot be left out of the concern when it comes to toxins. There are ingredients in mainstream cosmetics and personal care that you can avoid. It’s important that you read labels on the products you use/purchase!
Some typical toxic ingredients are: Mineral Oil, Petroleum Jelly, Paraffin Wax, Beeswax and something that is called ‘Natural Ingredients’ which is really Tallow ( boiled dead animals taken from the pound). Really horrific and totally unnecessary stuff!
Our skin is our largest organ so why not do what we can to preserve and respect in. If we can CONTROL this, then we should. And that’s what I do. I encourage you to do the same. Let’s be healthy together!
