The chemicals and toxins we are exposed to every day can greatly affect our health.
According to a recent study, the chemicals found in a lot of today’s cleaning products are as damaging to our lungs as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day!
Because we don’t just breathe these chemicals into our lungs but we can also absorb them into our skin they can expose us to other risks as well. Absorbing these chemicals into our skin can pose endocrine disrupting risks. Which means it can affect our bodies natural hormone process as well as organ imbalance. These endocrine disrupting risks can even be linked to why young children today are starting to hit puberty at an early age.
Causing symptoms such as:
- Menstrual cycle issues
- Early puberty
- Weight issues
- Early menopause
- Low testosterone
- Ovarian Cyst
- Along with many others
Symptoms from inhaling:
- Itchy eyes and skin
- Runny nose
- Risk of COPD
- Other respiratory issues
- Autoimmune Flairs
So how do we prevent ourselves from being exposed to all this?
Well first, it is important for our health to start reducing our exposure to these chemicals as much as possible. Switching your cleaning products over to a non-toxic brand is the best way to begin.
My favorite Non-Toxic cleaning product that can be used for almost everything in your home is called Branch Basics!
I have tested these products on:
- Stains (both on carpets and clothes)
- Hardwood floors
- Pots and pans
- Everything in the bathroom (cut my cleaning time in half)
- Tile floors
- Cleaning produce
- The list could go on
