Do you believe that toxic chemicals in our products are killing us? If so read on. If you are a non-believer please read, do some research, ask some questions and then lets discuss your opinions. I love a healthy debate. One statistic; 40% rise in breast cancer from 1973 to 1998. What could be causing that? Are we just that much more unhealthy today?
We have been talking about Toxic Chemicals, cleaning products, and various other home issues for several months now. Most of the time I'm getting questions about how to start, what's the first step to going green, or how do I get rid of toxic chemicals in my home.
The truth of the matter is you will have difficulty eliminating toxins from the home if you try to do it all at once. The primary reason is you don't know what you are looking for, how to read it, what's dangerous and what's not. So the first step really is awareness; what should you be aware of:
- Become aware of the chemicals that you are using to clean your home and the harm these cause
- Become aware of the toxins in and on your food
- Become aware of the toxins in your personal care products
- Lastly become aware of the toxins you come into contact with everyday outside your home.

Getting started with awareness is step number 1 in cleaning your house and your body of toxic chemicals.
Step 2 we will focus on looking at an easy thing to get rid of in your home; toxic cleaners.
