Chemical Chaos Causes Bad Health!

Warning sign chemicals and pestisides

We have been very concerned about the widespread use of artificial ingredients and unnecessary chemicals in every aspect of our lives for some years. It’s pretty hard to miss what’s going on today in our world with the bombardment of chemicals, food additives and potentially harmful ingredients that we ALL bring into our homes on a daily basis. It is not only affecting our health, but our environment and our future generations – our children and grandchildren. There are more than 80,000 untested industrial chemicals being used in consumer products with little or no understanding of the consequences on our health.

“We are conducting a vast toxicological experiment on our children which will affect generations to come”. Pediatrician Philip Landrigan, MD, Preventative Medicine, Mt. Sinai Medical Center.

You are making choices right now, every single day, that will affect your future. Chemicals are part of our everyday life and cannot realistically be totally avoided. But the good news is that armed with information, there are steps we can and must take, if we want to achieve great health and wellness. Unfortunately ignorance is not bliss! We need to become aware of what is happening to our food, our environment and the world at large that we live in.
