If you knew it was poison, Would you still use it?

Many doctors and scientists are discovering that there is a connection between our increased use of household chemicals and the increased incidence of chronic illnesses in children like cancer, asthma, ADD/ADHD, birth defects, and a host of other problems. These household chemicals are found in cleaning products that we use in our homes every day. Is your 3 in 1 cleaner safe? Do you use room deorderizer? How about your baby shampoo? Your toothpaste? Do some research...you will be surprised what you find out. Check out www.themomteam.vpweb.com

My main cleaning staples are baking soda and vinegar, with non-toxic cleaner for the bathroom. My daughter only uses non-toxic shampoo, diaper rash cream, etc.



And no, it's not a scare tactic. Well, I don't know anything about the site Christa mentioned, but what she said about cleaners and other products is true.





Edited to add: Ah, Myra, I see what you're saying. Yeah, this is probably just her trying to sell stuff so ignore that marketing part. But cleaners are very bad for you and actually have been linked to lung problems, especially.

It's a scare tactic to get you to buy their products instead.

Not saying there isn't any possible truth that regular household items cause problems, but it's to get you to buy stuff from her - not just to inform you of something going on.
