Are you aware that you might be putting you and your children’s mental, emotional and physical health at risk each me you bathe, shave, and apply sunscreens, body lotion or nail polish?Or, did you know that when you clean your house, you may be creating greater toxic air pollution indoors that exists outdoors?Everyday we use products that we think are perfectly safe but the truth is that all too often they are far from it — and manufacturers don’t have to tell us so. Ever since 1938 — when the FDA granted self-regulation to the cosmetics industry — such products can be marketed, regardless of what tests show. Most of the 25,000 chemicals used have not been tested for long-term toxic effects. In a typical day, you might be exposed to over 200 different chemicals, many of which are suspected of causing cancer or disrupting hormones. The Environment Protection Agency tests conclude that ingredients in shampoos, dyes and other personal care products “May be laying havoc with hormones that control reduction and development.”*44/165/1*
