Your home is your sanctuary and refuge, a place of rest and a retreat from the outside world.

Home is where you usually feel the safest. But beware – there may be poisons lurking around the house without you even knowing it and are making your home toxic!

If you think that the only poisons in your house are those items marked with the words “Danger! Keep out of reach of children,” then you are fooling yourself with a false sense of security because dangerous toxic chemicals may have made their way into your home through common everyday consumer products.

Let me give you the facts:

• Household consumer products injure around 33 million Americans per year, costing some $800 billion in related expenses from death, hospitalization or property damage.

• Some 77,000 chemicals are produced in North America, 3,000 of which are added to our food supply.

• More than 10,000 chemical solvents, emulsifiers and preservatives are used in food processing.

• 1,000 new chemicals are produced yearly.

• Most Americans have anywhere between 400-800 chemicals stored in their bodies, mainly in fat cells.

Are you shocked by these statistics? Let’s face reality. We now live in a very toxic world. This is one of the main downsides of living in a modern and technology-driven society.

Toxic chemicals play a major role in causing many of today’s health challenges including ADHD, cancer, obesity, early puberty, sterility, brain defects, and muscle and visual problems, among others.

If you or members of your family are often getting sick, it’s likely that the cause of the illness is something in your environment, something in your house that’s wreaking havoc with your health.

Here are some of the most common household products that are dangerous to your health:

1. Phthalates

Cosmetic Phthalates or plasticizers are found in many personal care products including hair spray, shampoos, fragrances, and deodorants. Phthalates are hormone-like chemicals that are linked to reproductive and developmental problems in animals. The states of California and Washington have already banned the use of phthalates in toys for younger children.

2. Flame retardants 

Flame Retardants are common in mattresses, upholstery, TV and computer casings and circuit boards, and contain PBDEs (polybrominated diphenyl ethers). PBDEs have been linked to learning and memory problems, low sperm counts and poor thyroid functioning in rats and mice. Mattresses in particular contain boric acid, formaldehyde and antimony, which is believed to be carcinogenic and more toxic than mercury.

3. Baby bottles

Baby Bottles are made with a chemical called bisphenol-a (BPA), which is similar in structure to estrogen and is referred to as a “hormone disruptor” because it can interfere with natural human hormones, especially for young children.

4. Air fresheners

 Air Fresheners and Cleaning Solutions, when used excessively or in small unventilated areas can release toxic levels of pollutants called ethylene-based glycol ethers and terpenes. Ethers are toxic by themselves while the non-toxic terpenes react with ozone in the air to create a poisonous compound.

5. Lead paint

Lead Paint poses the greatest danger for fetuses, babies and children because of its potential developmental disorders. In fact, the U.S. government declared lead to be the greatest environmental threat to children. Even low amounts of lead can cause problems with your central nervous system, brain, blood cells and kidneys.

6. Printer chemicals

Some Laser Printer Chemicals emit ultra fine particles like volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and ozone particulates that can cause serious health problems, including heart and lung disease. VOCs have been linked to cancer, eye and respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders and memory impairment

7. Carpet chemicals

The glue and dyes in Carpet Chemicals contain VOCs that are released during new carpet installation and can be harmful to your health in high concentrations.

8. Pressed wood products

Pressed Wood Products, including paneling, particle board, fiberboard and insulation, use glue that may contain urea-formaldehyde as a resin – suspected to be the largest source of indoor formaldehyde emissions. Formaldehyde exposure can cause watery eyes, burning eyes and throat, difficulty in breathing and asthma attacks. It causes cancer in animals.

9. Pesticides

Ninety percent of American households use forms of Pesticides, chemical formulas that kill everything from microorganisms up to rodents. In 2006, the American Association of Poison Control Centers received almost 46,000 calls regarding children under the age of five who had been exposed to potentially toxic levels of pesticides. Cancer, Parkinson’s disease, miscarriage, nerve damage, birth defects and blocked absorption of food nutrients are health problems that have been attributed to pesticides.

10. Mothballs 

Mothballs are used to repel and kill moths and prevent them from chewing through clothes and textiles. An active ingredient in moth balls, paradichlorobenzene, can cause cancer in animals. Other types of moth balls contain naphthalene, which can damage or destroy red blood cells, and stimulate nausea, vomiting and diarrhea with prolonged exposure.

It’s probably impossible to avoid all environmental toxins that are harmful to your health. But now that you have an idea of the things you should avoid, what you can do is to limit your exposure as much as possible and make your home a safer and healthier place to live in.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
