Why knowing the Health Impact of Cleaning Chemicals in Your Home is Important
Home and Garden
It is surprising how many people in today's era of information are still not aware that our households are full of toxic chemicals. Despite this, thousands are switching over to safer products and this is why.
Since 1950 at least 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented and dispersed into our environment. Only a fraction of these have been tested for human toxicity."
"We are by default, conducting a massive clinical toxicology trial, and our children and their children are the experimental animals.
Herbert L. Needleman, M.D., Philip J. Landrigan, M.D. Raising Children Toxic Free
It is alarming, the information about safety of products and the lack of labelling required for these products.
Of the 70,000 chemical compounds, only 25% have been tested and they were tested individually. Chemicals do not occur individually in our body, they occur in combinations.Tiny amounts of only 2 toxic chemicals at the same time are 1,000 times more dangerous than 1 of them alone. The Center of Bio Environmental Research
Are they in our homes?
Sadly, yes they are. The nation s worst pollution is found inside our homes. A 15 year study has shown American homes have chemical levels 70 times higher than outside. The number of chemicals used inside the home has more than doubled since 1950. The EPA, Environment Protection Agency

All of this results in poor health and less vitality than we would normally have in a fresh, unaltered environment. 50% of all illness is due to poor indoor air quality 1989 State of Massachusetts Study. The red flags of this toxic crisis are staggering. One person in three has allergies severe enough to be treated by a doctor. One person in ten suffers from migraine headaches or high blood pressure. One in five families have a member suffering from mental health concerns. 70% of cancers are triggered by exposure to hazardous substances in our environment Toxic Substances Strategy Committee. Shockingly, One in every two now get cancer. Women who work in the home have a 55% higher death rate from cancer than women who work outside the home. 17-year EPA Study. Asthma rate has tripled in the last 20 years. Incidence of lung cancer has increased 364% despite the fact that smok...
