Winning the War on Cancer: Best Home Cleaning Products
To win the war on cancer, you need to avoid those things that cause it. Start with commonly used household cleaning items.
Problem: If you brush your teeth with common toothpaste, you absorb the toxins sodium lauryl sulfate and fluoride.
Solution: Use toothpaste that doesn’t contain either, like Trader Joe’s All Natural, No Fluoride, Antiplaque Toothpaste.
Problem: Eat a non-organic apple or any other fruit and you can potentially poison yourself with the chemical atrazine (an herbicide).
Solution: Eat organic
“Approximately 75 percent of stream water and about 40 percent of all groundwater samples from agricultural areas tested in an extensive U.S. Geological Survey study contained atrazine.” – Natural Resources Defense Council
“New research on birth defects at extremely low concentrations and documentation of widespread ground- and drinking-water contamination has strengthened the case for banning the toxic compound atrazine, the most commonly used herbicide in the United States. Atrazine is a widely used weed killer that chemically castrates male frogs at extremely low concentrations and is linked to significant human and wildlife health concerns, including endocrine disruption, birth defects, fertility problems, and certain cancers.” – Center for Biological Diversity
Problem: Slather on sunscreen and you expose yourself to cancer causing chemicals known as benzophenones. Benzophenones are chemical building blocks, added to compounds, primarily used by the printing industry, in inks and clear coatings. It is also used to prevent ultraviolet light from causing damage to scents and colors in perfumes and soaps. You don’t need it or want it in anything you put on your body and you especially don’t want to cover the largest organ of your body – your skin – with it.
Solution: Don’t use sunscreens. If you’re going to be in the sun longer than an hour, wear light clothing to cover up or wear UV Skinz (www.uvskinz.com), an active-clothing product that will protect you from harmful sun rays.
