What this blog is about!

Now that we know most of our department store cosmetics and household products are full of harmful, cancer-causing and hormone-interrupting chemicals, what can we do about it? This blog is to help us all share ideas on what products we have tried, what products are relatively safe, what is affordable to the general public and what we have found to REALLY WORK! We are in this together!

It probably makes the most sense for you to start with the first post, and work your way up to the current one! We welcome your comments!

Another helpful list

OK - here is another good website with some lists of harmful ingredients in our products we use: www.nontoxicalternatives.com. When you start searching around on the internet for more information (now that I have you all riled up), make sure you check the dates of the articles, if available. You want the most current information. If you are looking at articles from 2008, things could have changed since then. Some manufacturers are actually attempting to take a step in the right direction by actually REDUCING the amount of harmful chemicals they put in their products. On the other hand, an ingredient that may not have been looked at very closely 3 years ago may have been scrutinized since then and found to be very harmful. Let's keep our eyes and ears open -- and please pass on any good websites or useful information you may find. Comment about brands and products you have tried. And I don't know about you, but when the research is saying that certain chemicals tested on lab rats caused cancer, lung disease, hormone interruption, or anything else I don't want ---- I tend to draw the conclusion that it probably isn't good for humans, either! Not that we are rats, but I'm just sayin' .......
