Is it Time to check ourselves- b 4 we wreck ourselves

Did you know?
In 1901 Cancer rates were 1 in 8000 – they are now 1 in 3 and rising
Between 1965 & 1982 over 4M distinct chemical compounds were made
At least 250,000 new chemicals have been made each year since 1982. They are found in our water, the air we breathe, the food we eat, what we put into and on our bodies and under the sink.

Most of these chemicals have never been tested for their effects on humans, animals or the environment
A study of umbilical cord samples from the American Red Cross found that babies in-utero have an average of 200 known toxic chemicals in their blood, including mercury, fire retardants, pesticides and a chemical used in the production of Teflon. All this even be-fore being born! (See ARTICLE #1)
Girls are reaching puberty at a younger age, sometimes as young as seven
More boys are being born with genital deformities than ever before
PMS, fibrocystic breast disease, endometriosis and other hormonal problems are rife
Diseases such as Alzheimer‘s, Parkinson‘s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and other immune related diseases are far more prevalent than they once were
Since 1980, asthma has increased by 600%. The Canadian Lung Association and the Asthma Society of Canada identify common household cleaners and cosmetics as triggers
There has been a 28% increase in childhood cancer, such as leukemia, since the addition of pesticides into household products.(Source: National Cancer Institute)

Allergies and skin conditions have increased 10-fold
1 in 3 children and adults now suffer from Asthma or respiratory illness
ADHD etc are now commonplace – 7.7 – 12.8m children in the US alone have mental health problems such as ADD, ADHD, DEPRESSION
People suffering from depression has risen from one in twenty people to one in five
There are up to 110 chemicals used on apples alone – so much for an apple a day… They can be kept in cold storage for up to two years before you buy them so they gotta keep them looking fresh and stop them rotting somehow!!
Approximately 710 chemicals in our water supply & Over 10,000 chemicals used in food processing and preservation which increases every year.

These are just a few of the published statistics. There is now scientific and medical evidence which supports the correlation between the increase in cancers, immune related diseases, asthma, skin disorders and more and the introduction of synthetic man-made chemicals into our environment since the 1930‘s. It‘s something we can no longer pretend isn’t happening…
I know this is scary stuff but congratulate yourself because you now have the information to question what‘s in the products you‘re using on Yourself, your Children and in your Home?  Stay tuned now to find out more and more and more.
