Be careful of air fresheners!

air

You think you may be safe in your own home. But, there are many items in your home that could cause you to develop cancer.

Our home is supposed to be our sanctuary, but we are being invaded by cancer-causing chemicals. There are many carcinogens that find their way into our homes without us even knowing about it through dyes, shampoos, rubber, plastic, perfumes and more. With the times constantly changing, there are more dangers in some homes than there is outside.

This is to inform you of the things that you could possibly have in your home that could be causing you cancer. They may seem the be safe, but don’t judge a book by its cover. Those smells good perfumes may smell pleasant, but you won’t be saying that from the hospital bed.

Air Fresheners: There are so many different kinds of air fresheners right now it is ridiculous. These air fresheners have volatile organic compounds, toxins, and carcinogens like phthalate esters in the formula. A study was released that found 13 common household air fresheners contain chemicals that can affect reproductive development and aggravate asthma

Personal Story about oral health

mouth

Here is a great message that a friend sent to me recently:

Julie,
Just had to share a result I found using T36-C5 tea tree oil.

I develop really awful canker sore in my mouth. They can take weeks to heal, and in the meantime make eating and talking painful. I had one that was becoming worse as days passed. My dentist had advised using Neosporin if the sore was close to the outside lip. Instead I dabbed T36-C5 on the sore with a Q-tip, and within an hour the pain was gone although the sore looked the same. The second night I dabbed again, and when I woke up–presto–no more sore. I also used (your brand’s) mouthwash which abated pain temporarily, but the tea tree oil performed a miracle. I have used many different solutions- some homemade, some not- to resolve a canker sore, but never have I found one that works so quickly.

Just wanted to share.

Important Information for Pregnant Women

Little Girl Kissing New Sibling to Be

Omega-3 fatty acids are a good kind of fat. They’re good for both you and your baby during pregnancy. There are three main kinds: (Their names are really long, so it’s OK to just use the letters.)

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This kind can’t be produced by your body. You have to get it through foods, like walnuts and soybeans.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). This kind helps your baby’s brain and eyes develop in the womb. Your body makes it on its own, but the best way to get it is through food or a supplement. A supplement is a product you take to make up for certain nutrients that you don’t get enough of in the foods you eat. For example, you can take a DHA supplement.

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Like DHA, your body also makes this kind, but it’s best to get it through food or a supplement.

HARMFUL TO HUMANS

clorox wipes

If you are a parent of an elementary school child, chances are that “wipes” are on your back-to-school list. But that is INSANE! Check the back of the canister – WARNING: HARMFUL TO HUMANS! Seriously? I’m pretty sure my 7 & 9 year olds are human (most of the time at least)….I refuse to send this dangerous product to school with them – for their safety AND the other kids in the class. Personally, I will give my kids’ teachers an all-natural product that is EPA approved as a disinfectant. It’ll still do the job, but totally safe!
