Think about it...
For me, it took getting cancer
to fully realize the harmful ingredients all around us,
and how they are absorbed into our bodies.
I underestimated how much our skin plays a part...
but when I think about pharmaceutical companies using medicinal patches that are applied to our skin... well it doesn't seem such a stretch.
(Birth Control, to stop smoking, for motion sickness, ADHD... and so on)
The medicated patches go directly to the bloodstream.
It follows that what products we use daily are also absorbed into our skin,
and affect our body's systems.
(lotion, shampoo, makeup, etc.)
We expect our products to be safe. I did.
These known hormone disrupting chemicals are NOT regulated...
and are used everywhere.
While these products alone might not have an affect on our bodies,
in combination with the other sources of these synthetic chemicals,
we are bombarded.
These sources of hormone disruptors /endocrine disruptors
create a huge toxic chemical burden within our bodies.
Other sources of these disruptors:
pesticides, fertilizers, plastics, fire retardant fabrics, BPA lining in canned goods... etc.
We all like our conveniences, our perfect green, weed free, bug free yards...
but at what cost?
Make a change!
