Two weeks ago, a new study came out from The Silent Spring Institute. It reveals chemicals that are all around us in everyday household and personal care products.
When I heard about this study, I was tempted to shrug and just make sure I continued to do things like use natural deodorant, keep on avoiding fluoride in my toothpaste, and continue to avoid using sunscreen unless absolutely necessary.
But then I actually read the full study details about “Hormone Disruptors and Asthma-Associated Chemicals in Consumer Products”. The research is very thorough, and is the first peer-reviewed assessment of a large number of hormone disruptors and
dangerous chemicals in a variety of household products, and the first of ingredients in sunscreens.
The list in the study is shocking.
It reveals consumer products that we buy again and again and bring into our homes, our kitchens, our bathrooms, our beds, our bodies – including air fresheners, dryer sheets, shampoo, bar soap, floor cleaner, sunscreen and toothpaste.
They found plenty, even in products labeled “green”.
Here is a quick video that explains the research:
And here are the full details of the study:
But here's the deal:
This stuff is easy to avoid if you know what you're doing.
For example, let's say you get dry skin after a workout. Here's a video in which my wife Jessa shows you how to easily fix the issue without absorbing toxic chemicals into your body:
Here are 11 more items that the study found to be clean and acceptable:
Of course, the easiest and least expensive way to go if you want complete peace-of-mind is to just make most of this stuff yourself. It's easy to do.
So next Sunday, April 15, at 2:30PST, my Jessa and are teaching a live video webinar entitled “Your Skin Is Your Mouth”. It's part of our private Inner Circle, and you can get access by clicking here. This will be a live interactive video webinar, we'll show you all our secrets, and you'll get to ask questions as we go.
