Two words that spell a fast, convenient & advanced life in the 21st century are plastic & radiation. they have impregnated what we eat and wear, where we live and work & how we breathe, commute, communicate and even rest. The sad truth is that everything we use and consume today has some or the other harmful chemical that interferes with the body’s functioning...and manifest as diseases over a period of time. Let us tune our awareness about the products we use, to be selective and make informed choices. Let us turn towards natural products for a toxic free life.
Nature is perfect, everything fits in perfectly if we adhere to the laws of nature. But human beings have endeavored to alter things according to their whims and fancies and ended up creating an synthetic/unnatural world, a dangerous environment to satisfy their desires for more, better and different. The further man goes from nature, the more he invites toxicity.
In a survey conducted by natural skincare authority and campaign for safe cosmetics, Australia, more than 14000 personal care products such as lotions, lip balms, deodorants, sunscreens, moisturizers, toothpastes, shampoos and hair conditioners of different brands were evaluated. Of these one third products contained carcinogenic compounds; 45.9% contained substances that negatively impact male and female fertility and development of new born, about 60% contained chemicals that disrupt the endocrine system and a staggering 79% contained allergenic toxins.
Blinded by the false promises of instant results, naive consumers indulge in synthetics unaware of the irreversible damages they are inflicting upon themselves. It`s unbelievable how unknowingly we are actually inviting cancer, even while doing something as simple as applying talcum powder. If you want to find out for yourself, just read the labels of your soaps and shampoos and look up the damaging effects of the ingredients on the internet.
