I used to scoff at my aunt who had to have everything "all-natural" and "organic". It was weird and we all rolled our eyes at her. Until I got educated. Now, she is one of my major resources when I'm looking for something with clean ingredients. Why the change?
Our world, our daily household products are loaded with endocrine disruptors and we see the damage right in front of us if we choose to look.
Our young girls are reaching puberty at earlier and earlier ages. The earlier a girl starts menstruating, the higher the risk she's at for developing breast cancer later in life. But instead of stepping back and asking "why is this happening", our medical system just changes their standard to what is considered "normal" and carries on with business as usual as breast cancer rates sore.
Unexplained infertility will effect 1 in 6 couples. Unexplained infertility means, the couple has been unsuccessful at conceiving for a year or more and none of their medical professionals know why.
The U.S has the most lax regulations in the WORLD on what ingredients companies can use in our products. In fact, Johnson & Johnson has been banned from other countries because they do not meet their ingredient safety standards. Yet they are one of our leading brands in the personal care product industry. In our BABY products!
It is disgusting what is allowed in the foods we eat, the products we put on our skin, and chemicals we clean our homes with. Ingredients that are known to cause abnormal cell growth (know anyone with cancer), neurotoxins (what was I coming in here for again?) and ingredients known to mimic estrogen and prevent our body from using its own natural hormones (Likely the reason why you're here).
Experts estimate that we are exposed to more of these hormone disrupting toxins in a year, than those born before the 1950's had been exposed to in their whole lifetime.
Being mindful of what we put in and on our bodies is one small step that makes a WORLD of difference to your health. Choose wisely.
