“We’ve measured hundreds and hundreds of toxic chemicals in the blood of babies that are still in the womb…Flame retardants, the chemicals in consumer products like personal care products, makeup, shampoos. It’s a very long list.”
My first reaction is horrified, and then so incredibly sad for the families who are struggling with mysterious conditions and have no idea that it’s the toxic chemicals in their environment making them sick. I wish I could totally eliminate this problem for every person I care about with the snap of my fingers! But I can’t, so instead I share and educate as many people as I can. Ignorance is most definitely not bliss when it comes to this. Knowledge brings with it the power to make better choices, and it’s truly not that hard.
Yes it means being more intentional and picky about what we allow in our homes and where we get it. Yes it means reading labels BEFORE you bring it home and making sure the ingredients are safe. Yes it means having to make it more of a priority in your budget to use better products than the junk you get at grocery store.
You only get one life with one body and so do your kids. You & your family are worth being intentional. Worth being proactive. Worth being protective.
