As more dangerous and toxic chemicals are pumped into our environment every day, it is becoming increasingly important to become aware of this issue.
I encourage you to please support this great campaign that is being run by The Safer Chemicals Healthy Families website that will attempt to bring national awareness and protection to our health from common everyday chemicals.
All of us are unknowingly and unwillingly exposed to an insane amount of toxic chemicals on a daily basis. They are present in our grocery stores, banks, post office, highways, schools, shopping centers, parks, etc., but even worse of all is that some of the most toxic chemicals can be found right in our own homes.
Everything from the plastic wrappers that your food is purchased in, to the linens on your bed, your cosmetics, shampoo, toothpaste, children’s toys, cleaning supplies, body care, dish soap, carpet, construction of your home, plastic bottles, computers, electronics, vegetables, morning breakfast etc., contains high levels of chemicals that are detrimental to your health.
Most alarming of all is that these toxic chemicals that surround us each day are also found in the human body. Tests performed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal that toxic chemicals can be found in the blood and urine of all Americans. Even babies are being born with chemicals in their body. However, this is a fact that is hidden and kept under wraps as much as possible from the public eye and is rarely addressed on the evening news.
The public is also not made aware that most chemicals in use today have never been assessed for safety and the Toxic Substances Control Act ,which is supposed to govern toxic chemicals hasn’t been updated in 33 years. The public is also not made aware that they are exposed to these chemicals or that they have a detrimental impact on their health.
These toxic chemicals disrupt, alter and damage the body’s organs and immune, nervous, reproductive, cardiovascular, metabolic and endocrine systems, which results in the epidemic of health problems that flood our society today, such as depression, anxiety, heart disease, obesity, cancer, infertility, diabetes, insomnia, erectile dysfunction, loss of sex drive, Parkinson’s, headaches, hormonal imbalances, chemical sensitivities, extreme fatigue and inability to handle stress to name only a few. You name the health condition or disease and there is a link to an environmental toxin. Toxic chemicals found in common everyday products destroy the human body and result in poor physical and emotional health.
The Safer Chemicals Healthy Families campaign will attempt to pass legislation that will stop the use of these toxic chemicals, and improve our right to know about what chemicals are being used and the impact these chemicals have on our health. It is crucial that more people become aware of this issue in order for change to happen.
