With school back into swing I wanted to provide some information about the dangers of head lice shampoo (very toxic pesticide). You can read the story and journey of a mother who tragically lost her son because of the use of head lice shampoo.
She turned her tragic loss into a mission to educate parents of the danger of using head lice shampoo and ways to naturally prevent and treat head lice. She provides ways to safely treat head lice by using things like mayonnaise to smother the lice and remove nits.
The leading lice shampoo contains a potent pesticide called LINDANE, which has been known to cause vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, liver damage and many other health issues. LINDANE has been banned in 18 countries and severely restricted in 10 others.
I hope this information was helpful and while Jesse's story is a tragic one, his mother has tried to turn his loss into a way to educate parents about the dangers of head lice shampoo and ways to effectively treat lice without exposing children to harmful chemicals. Her site is very informative. www.headlice.org
