The sad truth about our home is that we are exposed to toxins on a regular basis. An increased risk for developing cancer is the one I think about the most, I do TRASH Cancer parties. I come to your home or you come to mine, and I have treats that are made with healthy food, and we play a few games that are like a game show, but about toxins, we learn a lot about what we can do to change our home and do a clean sweep.
Trash Cancer is something Fran Dreser started ... and I have made it into a FREE party at my house.
IF you want me to come to your house there is a small fee.
We talk about Radon, smoking and cleaning the air in a non toxic way. Those glade plugins you have NO GOOD. WE talk about asbestos and testing your water. We talk about pesticides on your lawn .
Based on current cancer rates, about 41 percent of people born today will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetimes. THAT is so scary.
Many women don't know that their lipstick and cosmetics have chemicals. The carcinogen formaldehyde is one ingredient to look out for in your personal-care products. I use a database called ewg.org to find out if something I want to buy is good or bad. I have begun to find beauty products that are made safer or I make my own, when possible.
I am working on a "spray" deodorant with a few of my favorite essential oils and will let you know how that turns out.
Household cleaning products are the worst, and at the trash cancer party you leave with your own cleaning products that you make at the party.
I even have made my own oven cleaner, cause you know those fumes are harmful. Some products irritate our eyes and noses, and may give us headaches. Those irritating fumes from paints, stains, glues and cleaning products usually contain volatile organic compounds. Benzene is not good to have in a product so be on the look out for that.
We talk about dry cleaning and how you should stop using the service and why.
We will discuss Tupperware and plastic glad storage, I recommend to my clients to go glass, and have started to ween myself off of plastic and am using much more glass "Tupperware". Once again used my Kohl's cash to purchase. BPA is present in many plastic containers. As of today, BPA hs not ben classified as a human carcinogen. Research has shown that it has been linked to brain cancer and breast cancer. So far, the FDA has banned BPA from baby bottles and children's sippy cups. For now, consumers who want to avoid BPA can avoid plastics especially NO.7. Canned foods are dangerous too... I know I still buy soup and beans that way..but try to find cans that say NO BPA. I know a brand named EDEN foods is safe.
I try hard not to purchase water bottle for my son or for myself I use a great water bottle that is glass with a outside rubber piece to deter breakage, I have 3 and I have not broken one yet. ( knock on wood)
the bottles are so pretty and they have for kids and babies.. I worked in a daycare for many years before teaching and I had many mother's use glass bottles, it's hard to get use to at first, but so smart.
I use baking soda for many things...So you might start too.. If you are interested in learning more about a Trash Cancer party or about how you can clean sweep your home of toxins... you can write me a email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 845 204-8945
