Today’s Blog is about home based pollution, you know, those household cleaners, insect killers, drain remedies, carpet fresheners, and scented plug-ins and throw way aids. Billions of dollars are spent every year to fill our home with poisonous, toxic remedies for simple cleaning applications. Aren’t we all guilty of buying some kind of cleaning solution without much thought? Do you ever read what’s contained in many of those cleaning products? Do you honestly care where this toxic cocktail ends up?
It’s a scary thought to think of the millions of US homes filled millions of gallons of toxic chemicals. Who do we blame? The chemical companies that spend billions to lure us into buying this stuff, or ourselves for succumbing? Over the next few days watch your favorite television shows and see how often a cleaning product is advertised. The next time you go shopping for food; look at how many isles are dedicated to cleaning solutions. You’ll suddenly realize just how out of control the situation is.
How does this affect us? Only 200 chemical compounds have been checked and tested by the FDA, 80,000 exist on the market. When I stop to think of the proliferation of cancer centers, cancer hospitals and cancer medications on the market today, and think about how many people you now know with cancer – are we the cause of our own suffering – so that the kitchen floor is lemon fresh?
