How to avoid toxic chemicals at home that risk the health of you and your child.
In the modern world it’s normal to have a toxic body.
Over the last few years, ordinary people, that is non-scientists like you and me, have become increasingly aware of the dangers posed by man-made chemical ingredients in products we use every day at home.
Two TV programmes screened in the UK , “How Toxic are You?” and “How Toxic are Your Kids?” have enhanced this awareness here and I’m sure that similar programmes have been screened in other countries too.
I want to share with you what I’ve learnt about these dangers and what we can do to remove most of them.
The main cause of body toxicity is harmful ingredients in products we use every day
I don’t think it’s too much to ask that the products sold to us for use on ourselves, our children and our homes should be safe products!
I say that they should not contain dangerous ingredients, nor even potentially harmful ones, that can accumulate in our bodies.
Is the risk real?
A 15 year study showed that “women who worked at home had a 54% higher death rate from cancer than women who had jobs elsewhere.”
In 1989 the US Dept of Occupational Safety and Health analysed 2,983 chemicals used in personal care products such as toothpaste, bubble bath, cosmetics etc.
884 were toxic.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Of these:-
778 were acutely toxic
146 were carcinogenic
218 caused reproductive complications
314 caused biological mutations
376 caused eye and skin irritation
The number of chemicals used in everyday products increases yearly.
Most chemicals remain untested by Regulatory Bodies
The number of synthetic chemicals has been doubling every 7 or 8 years since the 1930s – far too many to test.
Users rely on manufacturers’ own Material Safety Data Sheets.
By 18 months, babies have the “safe lifetime levels” of chemicals in their blood
In 2003, the ContamiNATION study – ( World Wide Foundation) – found:-
Safe lifetime levels in the first 18 months of life
70 toxic chemicals in the blood of UK citizens
27 was the average number, with one poor man having 49
When they tested placentas and umbilical cords they found that babies were being born with as many as 20
A Royal Society study (UK) found that within 18 months they have accumulated the “safe lifetime levels”.
In December 2009 Dr. Mercola reported that the Environmental Working Group (USA) carried out tests on 10 randomly selected samples of umbilical cord blood.
9 tested positive for BPA (Bisphenol A) an industrial petrochemical which has been implicated in a lengthening list of chronic disorders, including cognitive and behavioural impairments, diabetes and obesity.
Air in the home can be up to 70 times more hazardous than the air outside
70 times more hazardous
“Most homes have airborne concentrations of hazardous and toxic chemicals 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outside. Some homes are 70 times higher!”(US Environmental Protection Agency 1989)
Household products release toxic vapours even when they are not being used. Our noses tell us where the washing powders and cleaning products are in the supermarket, don’t they??
Vapours released by body warmth from night clothes and bedding are breathed in and can cause asthma, especially in children because of their small size.
Then there’s the air fresheners. Do you know it takes at least 100 chemicals to make a “perfume”? The “perfume” blocks the receptors in the nose. That’s why we have products which periodically spray again.
So… DO they neutralise bed smells or not?
Have you ever read the warnings on the back? Nasty!
Fire retardant chemicals in carpets and soft furnishings are another hazard.
The Bathroom is more dangerous than the Kitchen
Bathroom is more dangerous
The skin is the quickest route for absorption of chemicals into the bloodstream – undiluted – hence nicotine and HRT patches.
The main ingredient used to make brake fluid and anti-freeze is the most frequently used foaming ingredient in toiletries which foam.
CAP (Consumer’s Association of Penang – Malaysia) published a booklet detailing the findings of their ground-breaking study to reveal “Cancer-Causing Chemicals in Cosmetics and Daily Use Products.”
CAP’s study was prompted by a 496% increase in the number of reported cancer cases which rose from 6,254 in 1970 to 37,294 in 1996 – during which time Malasian society was becoming “modernised” in the mould of Western Societies. Their death rate from cancer had risen to match ours in the UK – 103 a day!
These are some of the chemicals they named which are common ingredients in toiletries, cosmetics and skin careproducts.
You can find a comprehensive list of what products they are in and problems associated with them Here to check against the products in your home.
An added complication is Potentially Harmful chemicals. A lot of chemicals are safe UNTIL mixed with something else eg Triclosan and water = toxic dioxins (so why is Triclosan in toothpaste?) but the scary thing is that as tens of thousands have NEVER been tested, no-one knows whether they are safe or not.Be wary of products where ingredients are not listed on the product container.Also be aware that “natural”, “organic”, “herbal” does not necessarily mean SAFE because the base ingredients (the carriers) quite often aren’t.
Toothpaste warning label
Toothpaste warning label
This is on a tube of toothpaste I bought in the U.S.
It is a top seller in the UK too but it doesn’t carry the warning!
“Children under 6 years of age: Do not use unless directed by a dentist or a physician.”
Keep out of the reach of children under 6 years of age. If you accidentally swallow more than used for brushing, seek professional advice or contact a Poison Control Centre immediately.”
~~~~~ Toothpaste is poisonous?????
Personally. this makes me very angry.
The quickest way for us to absorb anything, is through the mouth.
Where do you put Angina pills? Under the tongue because they are absorbed in about 30 seconds!
Don’t you think children absorb toothpaste from under their tongues??
So how many exposures does your family have ?
Toiletries and cosmetics
When you count the number of toiletries and cosmetics a woman uses they add up to about 20 a day. If there are only 2 or 3 nasties in each product, it averages out at 50 a day – more than 18,000 every year.
Men now use moisturisers etc so their tally is now more than 6,000 a year.
Children are not far behind – about 5,000 a year – and we have to remember that their small size makes them extremely vulnerable.
Do your products pass the safety test?
Why not print off the ingredients listed above and check the labels on your favourite products?
If they fail the test you have a choice to make.
A) Do nothing.
B) Change your brand.
I can now hear you saying, “Yes, but I don’t have time to search and what about the ingredients not listed here? Are they safe?”
I felt the same way because I don’t have a degree in chemistry either.
Do you want some Good News now?
Just as not all natural substances are safe, not all man-made chemicals are harmful.
In fact, some are very beneficial.
The trick is knowing which is which.
Some time ago, someone I know told me about a company who Do know the difference.
So we can take out the guess work by transferring our current monthly spending on Personal Care, Skin Care, Cosmetics and Home Care to the company who, in 1987, pioneered the formulation, manufacture and distribution of products made only from effective ingredients known to be safe.
They currently avoid more than 3.000 commonly used ingredients because they are known to be harmful or they have a “question mark” over them.
They still work very closely with Dr. Samuel Epstein, founder and chairman of The Cancer Prevention Coalition and emeritus Professor of Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the University of Illinois Chicago School of Public Health.
He is an internationally recognised authority on avoidable causes of cancer, particularly – unknowing exposure to industrial carcinogens in consumer products such as food, cosmetics and toiletries. This is the only company he endorses.
This Safety-Conscious company is also endorsed Chris Woollams, founder of the charity CancerActive and Phillip Day of Credence.org
I have already transferred my spending to them. YOU can too.
You don’t have to go and find your products in the shops, pay Retail and carry them home.
You can order on-line, buying at Wholesale and they will be delivered to your door!
They are Effective, Safe, Economical.
Who is this Safety-Conscious Company?
They are called Modere
Based in Springfield, Utah, they operate in North America, UK/Europe, Asia and Australia/New Zealand.
Their mission began back in 1987 with the product concept – “products free from harmful ingredients” – then they looked for the best way to get them to people.
They currently have 13 powerful, unique product lines which provide our total health solution, using the Best of Science and the Best of Nature.

Scientists have shown that many diseases and conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis and M.E. have their basis in nutrient deficiency, and bio-chemical imbalances.
In simple terms, these health problems occur because the body is not receiving the nutrients it needs in order to function properly. When we supply the body with the necessary nutrients it can correct / repair itself. That IS one of its normal functions.
We all know that a Rolls Royce engine will not operate properly on 2 star fuel and cheap oil.
In the same way, the human body will not function properly on a poor quality diet and the western diet IS a poor quality diet, being devoid of many essential nutrients and full of junk / non-food items and chemical additives.
In the midst of plenty, we are suffering from malnutrition..!
The dangers of this poor quality diet are multiplied by the toxicity from man-made chemicals to which we are subjected on a daily basis.
In 1940 chemical production was – 1 billion lbs annually
By 1988 chemical production had risen to – 600 billion lbs. annually.
Production is still rising.
Our exposure is mainly from:-
A. Prescription drugs.
B. Unknowing exposure at home and at work. ~~~~~~~~~ (Dr. Epstein)
Varying degrees of chemical exposure have now been implicated in:-
ADD / ADHD, Parkinson’s, ME, cancer, autism, motor neuron disease, infertility…
It is now known that good nutrition is vital to detoxify man-made chemicals within the human body.
This raises several questions.
**What essential nutrients are even “good” foods deficient in and why?
**Why are they essential nutrients?
**What can we do to help ourselves?
What Essential Nutrients are we Lacking?
Nutrients which are classed as “Essential” are those nutrients which the body cannot manufacture and therefore must be consumed every day.
They are :-
certain vitamins, especially vitamin C.
certain fatty acids
Vegetables and fruit lackMINERALS because, over time and more recently due to modern farming methods, the land has become exhausted.
The results of a world-wide survey on the mineral content of soils were reported to the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio.
Mineral Depletion By Continent 1992
By continent, mineral depletion over the previous hundred years was as follows:-
85% – North America
76% – South America
76% – Asia
74% – Africa
72% – Europe
55% – Australia
This confirmed what Senate Document 264 had said in 1936 about the soil in the States.
The 1991 edition of “The Consumption of Foods” by the Royal Society of Chemistry and MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food — now called DEFRA) reported this staggering reduction in mineral content in our vegetables compared with the 1940s findings. Here are just four examples:-
68% less copper
48% less calcium
26% less iron
25% less magnesium.
In 1991, to get the same amount of iron that was in ONE apple in 1940, we should have to eat THREE apples!
They also reported that they were “concerned for the health of the UK population” and one solution “is supplementation…..with a well balanced, naturally derived, readily assimilated, liquid food supplement.”
Scary, isn’t it?
Are vitamins really in this food?
The majority of us have to buy our fruit and vegetables from a shop rather than picking them and eating them straight away. This is one reason that they lack VITAMINS.
Cooking destroys vitamins (and enzymes) – the hotter and the longer, the more is destroyed – that’s why eating them raw is best.
Another reason is that fruit is often picked before it is ripe. The supermarkets actually make it a selling point, as if it’s desirable, -”Ripen at Home!” The problem is that it’s the plant itself which uses the sunlight to make vitamins – to ripen the fruit – once picked, the fruit doesn’t “ripen”, it just softens. It looks good and tastes ok but it is nutrient deficient.
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS EPA and DHA vital
Many people lack the ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS EPA and DHA (eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexanoic acid) which are made from omega 3. Even if they eat sufficient fish or seeds, if they are older, or do not have the right nutrients present, their bodies cannot perform the steps necessary to produce the EPA or DHA.
A pregnant woman needs extra EFAs (omegas 3 and 6) to make the baby’s brain and nervous system. Apparently, if she doesn’t take in sufficient EFAs, the baby takes what it can anyway and her brain physically shrinks — hence, “Baby Blues” — pregnancy and post-natal depression.! Isn’t nature wonderful? Let’s keep the species surviving and produce the best possible new generation.
Of the twenty-five AMINO ACIDS, eight are essential. Most of the other seventeen can be made from them. These eight are essential because the body cannot function without them, although others are semi-essential under certain conditions. Unfortunately, we do not always consume the right kind, or right quality of protein, to acquire them.
The twenty-five AMINO ACIDS — different forms of protein — are the building blocks of the body. They are vital for the growth and repair of body tissue. They are also used to make hormones, enzymes, anti-bodies (immune system) and neuro-transmitters (help in depression), and help transport substances around the body.
Some reasons why these nutrients are vital
MINERALS Minerals keep the body’s internal acid / alkaline balance.
Minerals are the co-factors of vitamins – without a vitamin’s own mineral co-factor, the body can’t use the vitamin.
Minerals are also the co-factors of enzymes.
Some minerals are anti-oxidants.
Macro Minerals. (Needed in gram quantities). ~~ a few examples.
Calcium, magnesium, phosphorus — to make bone
Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium –electrical properties for nerve impulses and muscle function.
Trace Minerals. (Needed in mcg or less quantities). ~~ a few examples.
Zinc — fertility, healthy prostate, memory
Iron — part of the E molecule in haemoglobin — carries oxygen
Iodine — thyroid function
Copper — needed to utilise iodine
Selinium — protection against cancer
Chromium and Vanadium — protects against diabetes
Boron — facilitates bone metabolism.
As you can see, minerals do not work in isolation. They work together and therefore it is vital that they are present in the body in the correct proportions.
Vitamins are co-factors of enzymes.
Some vitamins are anti-oxidants.
Here are some other jobs some of the vitamins do:-
Vitamin C — an anti-oxidant, protects tissues and fluids in the body, ensures flexibility and strength of cell, vein and artery walls, necessary for a healthy sperm count and sperm mobility, helps immune cells to mature………..
Vitamin E — an anti-oxidant, protects tissues and fluids in the body, a powerful anti-cancer agent (especially when teamed with the mineral selenium), healthy heart muscle, prevents blood clots, improves wound healing and fertility……….
Vitamin K — controls blood clotting.
Vitamin A — an anti-oxidant and immune system booster, essential for night vision……
Vitamin B1 — energy production, digestion, brain function……
Vitamin B12 — needed for making use of protein, for making DNA….
Again, as you can see, vitamins work together with each other, as well as with minerals, so it is important that they are all present and in the necessary amounts.
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS EFAs do lots and lots of jobs, too many to mention here, so I’ll just say :-
If we want healthy, happy, intelligent, well-behaved children & adults,
With no heart or circulatory problems,
A fantastic memory,
Lots of energy,
The right height & weight,
Beautiful soft skin & hair,
we need to take the essential fatty acids of the Omega3 and 6 Families.
What can we do to help ourselves?
The first thing I did was to take a liquid mineral and vitamin supplement. Then I was introduced to a nutrition expert who has a doctorate in bio-chemistry. As a result of that, I changed my diet and way of eating to the one I wrote about in The connection between diet and health.
I buy organic food whenever I can, because it’s not contaminated with chemicals,research shows that it is more nutritious because the bacteria in the soil which help plants take up minerals aren’t killed off and it tastes better. (I’ll give you more info. about the benefits of organic food another time).
One supplement I took, and still do take, is a liquid mineral and vitamin supplement called Mineral Solutions. ~~~~~~ This is “My Magic Bottle”. The ingredients are all natural — no synthetic ones — and it is what they call “bio-available”. I discovered that this big word means that as soon as you put some in your mouth, it starts to be absorbed through the tongue and lining of the mouth. Very useful when someone is too ill to eat.! I know this because a friend of mine had radiation treatment after the removal of a salivary gland. She felt really ill and couldn’t eat. She kept putting a few drops at a time onto her tongue and after a few days felt much better and was eating food again.
Another friend had a blood clot on her lungs and was rushed into Intensive Care. I saw her four days later when she was moved onto a Ward. She had had nothing to eat and just couldn’t eat the food they offered.
She had asked me to bring some of my Mineral Solutions so I took that and some Noni Juice. She had 15 ml Mineral Solutions and 30 ml Noni straight away. She took the same before going to sleep; in the morning; at lunch time and at teatime. She felt much better and was able to eat some fruit at teatime.
Twenty-four hours had elapsed between my visits and the change in her was dramatic. She had been white, limp, eyes dull and now she had her colour back, no longer limp and a sparkle back in her eyes. I had my friend back. This is no exaggeration– I really had been afraid she was going to die.
I’ve had two operations. I doubled up the amounts for two weeks before the operations and took them to hospital with me. On both occasions, I sailed through the operation with no problems and was home in record time.
How does all this happen? Simple! They give the body nutrients it can use.
Mineral Solutions contains the full range of plant sourced macro minerals and trace minerals (including rare earths) that we need,
really powerful anti-oxidants from concentrated fruit extracts,
twelve amino acids (includes the 8 Essential ones),
something to feed the good bacteria in our gut,
in fact, more than 90 nutrients that we need every day. The only ones not there are EFAs.
(We have Classic Mineral Solutions without the fruit extracts which is suitable for people with diabetes. Both are vegan-friendly.)
I won’t bore you with any more details but, as you can see, I am enamoured with this supplement. I have been taking it now since February 2000. I take 15 ml twice a day and intend to continue doing so because it works for me.
To find out if my “Magic Bottle” works for You, try it yourself.
This is nourishment, not a drug, so be prepared to take it for 3 months before deciding what benefits you are having. I suggest 15 ml twice a day for 14 days , then once a day before breakfast.
Omega 3 DHA, EPA& vitamin E
This is the Omega 3 Supplement I take.
I take 1 with breakfast and 1 with lunch so that I get boosts of energy during the day.
