Environmentally Safe and Toxic Free

Toxic chemicals are rapidly on the increase, exposing our bodies by food, air and water.

According to Herbert L. Needleman, M.C. and Philip J. Landrigan, M.D. in their book Raising Children Toxic Free, Since 1950, at least 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented and dispersed into our environment through new consumer commodities, industrial products, and food. Only a fraction of these have been tested for human toxicity. We are, by default, conducting a massive clinical toxicological trial. And our children and their children are the experimental animals.

You may feel there is not a lot you can do as an individual, whilst large manufacturers are contributing to the pollution by dumping into rivers and lakes. But did you know that your home is the number one source of toxic chemicals?

A study by the EPA, conducted over a fifteen-year period, found that women who worked at home had a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who had jobs away from home.

Many products are assumed to be safe and are allowed to be sold in the marketplace without adequate testing. Of the 17,000 chemicals that appear in common household products, only 30% have been adequately tested for their negative effects on our health; less than 10% have been tested for their effect on the nervous system and nothing is known about the combined effects of these chemicals when mixed within our bodies. (World Resources Institute, The 1994 Information Please Environmental Almanac).


Its amazing what we dont know CAN hurt us. Many household products dont require labelling. Products like pesticides only have to include active ingredients, even though the inert ingredients may account for up to 99% of the product and even if there are toxins or poisons like DDT in them. The inert ingredients can be just as harmful as the active ingredients!

More children under four die of accidental poisonings at home than are accidentally killed with guns at home. (National Safety Council).
