How Many Toxic Chemicals Do You Clean With? Watch “Chemerical”

How many toxic chemicals do you clean your home with and simply not know it?

The average person in this country is exposed to 72,000 chemicals a year. In addition,  the average home has 62 toxic chemicals that can be found in their cleaning supplies and most people have no idea they are so dangerous for your health.

These chemicals can be found in all types of cleaners,  perfumes, paints, soaps, lotions, and cosmetics.

There is little to no regulation in this industry which leads the average consumer to just “trust.

Did you know………….?

  • The National Cancer Society completed a 15-year-old study concluding that women who stay home with their kids versus go back to work have a 54% higher chance of cancer. The study linked this to a higher exposure of the poor indoor air quality in homes.

People just trust that stores wouldn’t sell anything that wasn’t healthy for them. This isn’t the case, as the EPA even warns against these chemicals.

 

  • EPA study stated that the toxic chemicals in household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air.
  • Studies have confirmed that within 26 seconds of exposure to cleaning products, traces of these chemicals are found in every organ in the body.
  • According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 150 products that are very common in homes have been linked to birth defects, cancer, allergies and psychological problems.

If you find these statistics alarming and if you are interested in creating a TOXIC FREE HOME for your family, you MUST watch a documentary available on Netflix instant demand called Chemerical.

This documentary points out some GREAT NEWS, that you don’t have to put your family at risk by the cleaning products you use. No longer do you have to expose your body and your kid’s bodies to all of these toxic chemicals when cleaning your home!

It was amazing to see the changes in this family as they changed to a toxic free home.

A Must See Documentary Called “Chemercial.”

I highly recommend that EVERYONE watch the documentary called Chemerical. It is EXCELLENT.

It shows a family and the 40 bottles of toxic chemicals that they use to clean their home. As a result when their indoor air quality was tested, they were shocked to learn that it was at dangerous levels.

What was most amazing how much better the whole family looked after they had been using natural products.  The mother looked substantially healthier. Her skin was clearer and her eyes were brighter. (Even my husband commented on it which was unusual.) She reported more energy and said she just felt better.

After they had been using natural cleaning products, the same company came back to test their indoor air quality. They passed with flying colors and now enjoy living in a home that is non-toxic, healthy and livable.

 

Another video that discusses the dangers of cleaning products and it’s linked to asthma.

    I make handcrafted, natural soaps but hadn't made the switch to natural cleansers, yet. I'd been accumulating recipes and getting ready to make the switch when an accident happened. Somehow, residue from a soap scum remover remained behind … we think in the trap of the drain and when I tried to 'brighten' the shower tile with chlorox, it mixed with this producing very toxic fumes. My airway started tightening, I felt short of breath & tingly, and the air I breathed smelled burned. My husband is a Paramedic and instantly put me on high flow O2. I started feeling better, but felt bad effects even the next day. These chemical household cleaners are not to be messed around with! Mine are being replaced with natural, non-toxic ones immediately!

  5. Can't wait to heat about your new project. Love your pictures and your blog!

    Since, I have kids at home, so I always try to avoid using synthetic chemicals for cleaning purposes, and it helps protecting my children from harmful side effects and allergies.
