by Dan Vickers If you are like many people you live life to the fullest and take each day as a new day. You take care of yourself and your children as best as you can. What if I told you that your home may be filled with toxins that are harmful to you and your children? Many people have no clue about the dangers that are present in their homes and the effects of chemicals and toxins. Americans suffer from more degenerate disease then ever before. There is a definite link between the "Epidemic of Degenerative Disease" and the increase in the development of synthetic ingredients used in personal care products and home care products. Many people do not consider their home to be a toxic waste dump and the facts may surprise them. The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals. That is more than a chemistry lab! More than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced since World War II, and those are the same chemicals that have been found in many homes across the nation! Here are some facts about products that are found in many homes.
  • Bleach has been linked to reproductive problems in men and learning and behavioral problems in children.
  • Everyday household cleaners are the number one cause of poisoning children.
  • Behavioral problems have been linked to exposure to toxic chemicals and molds.
  • Carpet cleaner solution is extremely toxic to children. The fumes given off by carpet cleaners can cause cancer and liver damage.
  • Laundry detergents, household cleaners and pesticides have been linked to breast cancer.
  • Glass cleaners often may contain ammonia. Fumes from ammonia can irritate skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaners are one of the most dangerous cleaning products. Can contain chlorine and hydrochloric acid. Harmful to health simply by breathing during use.
  • Formaldehyde, phenol, benzene and toluene are found in common household cleaners, cosmetics, beverages, fabrics and cigarette smoke. These chemicals are cancer causing and toxic to the immune system.
  • An EPA study stated that the toxic chemicals in household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air.
These are proven facts and back-up the real dangers in many products in our homes. If you use store bought window cleaner, disinfectants, carpet cleaners, make-up , degreasers or stain removers, you should be aware that all have been found to contain very dangerous chemicals and toxins. These toxins have been linked to cancer, immune system disorders, liver damage, and many other very common health issues many American's face today.
