It is only trace amounts. Trace amounts of radiation, trace amounts of chemical food dyes, preservatives and hormones in our food, Air pollution contains trace amounts of diesel exhaust, coal products, and other toxic industrial substances, trace amounts of chlorine and fluoride in our water, trace amounts of mercury in high fructose corn syrup, trace amounts of mercury, aluminum, thimerosal, aspartame and monosodium glutamate in vaccines, trace amounts of pesticides and poison in the earth and produce we eat and trace amounts of cancer causing chemicals in all conventional personal care products lining the shelves of supermarkets and drug stores.The list of trace amounts we are exposed to is endless.
|What is in your products?|
It feels overwhelming. How can we do anything about it if in fact these trace amounts are so prevalent? Well it would seem clear that less exposure would be better. Cutting back on the trace amounts of toxins that we come in contact with and expose the planet to is essential.
|Where do you think the toxins end up?|
The first step is awareness. We need to open our eyes and see what is there. There are some things we can not avoid. There are some choices that our everyday existence seems to be dependent on like driving your car, or using your cell phone. It is when we have a choice and when that choice doesn't interfere or disrupt our lifestyle, that the decision should clearly be to opt away from using, consuming and supporting toxic substances. So when we open our eyes where do we find these toxins that we can avoid by opting for a non-toxic alternative? When making changes I always like to start with what ever feels the easiest. Look to avoid toxins in the food you eat and the products you consume through topical application. Choose natural and organic. Choose no GMO (genetically modified). Choose no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or additives. Simply put, read your ingredients, and don't consume toxic chemicals. If you don't know what an ingredient is, find out. Look it up. If you are reading this, you have access to all the information you need on the ingredients in your consumable products through the Internet. Your choices matter to your health and the health of the planet. Think about the future of our children and their children. Show you care.
Be Well. Mahara
