Got a headache that won't go away? Feel like you're in a fog? Feel angry and don't know why? Or your children... do they have behaviour problems? They have trouble concentrating? Their actions don't seem 'normal?" You might want to read the following link.
As a person with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, I'm asking you all to wake up. We are killing ourselves and our families with chemicals. And for me, the worst are in my food, and the ones YOU are putting on your body.. .the perfumes, colognes, air fresheners, and fabric softeners... and the WORST... FEBREZE!!!!
Here in America, I cannot eat the wheat bread. The preservatives make me very very sick. When I walked across Spain last year, I ate bread all along the road. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The difference is, there they bake the bread from ONLY clean, freshly ground wheat every day... no preservatives. It didn't bother me at all. In fact, I felt great!
The processed and packaged food here is really dangerous. If a person wants to live a long, healthy life, they might want to consider going back to REAL food instead of processed, chemical laced food that leaves the reserves of those chemicals in your organs, tissue, and bones. REAL food like fresh fruits, vegetables, and CLEAN whole grains, breads without preservatives... nothing that comes in a box or a can or a package.
All those scented lotions, makeups, hairsprays, scented fabric softener, and room deoderants that you've been brainwashed into thinking you MUST use are also killing you, folks! I'm the canary in the coalmine, and you better watch me close! One exposure can put me in bed with flulike symptoms for days! They can literally change my personality, wipe out my memory in 3 minutes, make my joints swell and give me the migraine from hell... just from one whiff of the perfume you're splashing on after your shower!
It's like spraying RAID on a bug. Your skin is your largest organ. The doctors give medications these days on patches THROUGH the skin. So why are you slathering on things you cannot pronounce? Where do you think those dangerous chemicals go? Do you know that there are studies that prove that women who dye their hair black have a higher incidence of bladder cancer? The chemicals in the black dye settle into the bladder, eventually causing the change in the cells, the unbridled growth we call cancer.
If you can smell something, you are literally INGESTING it. If it's going into your nostrils, it's going into your bloodstream. So when you put those nasty airfresheners in your home, you're exposing yourself and your CHILDREN to even more chemicals.
Our obsession with being clean is comical. And it's also killing us. The raging cases of MRSA are a result of our insistence that everything from handlotion to dishwashing soap be 'antibacterial." It's caused those bacteria to mutate and become superbugs, and we've nothing to stop them. A person can die these days from a cut on the leg.. literally. Get rid of them! Let your kids play in the dirt again, exposing themselves to bacteria, building up natural resistance. Stop coddling them, because by doing that, you're endangering them!
So I'll get off my soapbox now. I'm a bit angry because I can't attend my Spanish class because someone got a nice poisonous cologne for Valentines Day. I realize he has the right to wear it, but what about MY right to breathe fresh air?!!! ACK!
There are plenty of websites that will tell you what the dangerous chemicals are in the products you use,and what diseases they've been linked to. Here is one link that has many other good links attached:http://www.ourlittleplace.com/mcs.html
Remember two things:
1. If you wouldn't EAT it, why are you putting it on your skin?
2. If you can smell it, you ARE eating it!
