There is a growing body of research that points to serious health effects from the use of chemical laden cleaners including laundry detergents. Individuals most susceptible to chemical laden cleaners are infants, young children, those with asthma, allergies, and respiratory issues as well as those with weakened immune systems (including cancer patients). If the research, coming from varied institutes and locations all point in the same direction, why are there not stronger warnings, messages, and even bans placed on these dangerous cleaners?The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is said to be monitoring about 300 environmental chemicals that have been found within the human body. Many of these chemicals can be found in household cleaning products. Why are they simply monitoring these chemicals?
Take for example asbestos: How long was asbestos "being monitored" before something was done about its dangerous health affects? We now have thousands of people with mesothelioma!
EWG reported a 2010 study done by the New York State Department of Health found that "children born to women who held cleaning jobs while pregnant have an elevated risk of birth defects." Are women being warned of this occupational hazard?
What's the hold up?"Big money" is at stake if these products were banned.
Regulating industries is a touchy subject, especially if lobbyist' money is at risk.
A necessary baseline:People should have the right to decide what products they want to use. With that said, for the health and safety of the consumer, there needs to be much greater levels of transparencies regarding the chemicals used in household cleaning products and their true dangers.
What can YOU do:At the grass roots, one way consumers can make a change on a national scale is to "vote" with their wallets. This is occurring within the food industry as more and more people are purchasing organic foods, more organic food choices are becoming available. The same, grass roots effort can bring positive changes in other industries!
For the sake of yourself, your family, pets, and environment seriously think about the household cleaners you have in your home. If they are NOT 100% all-natural, you are more than likely inviting unwanted health issues into your home. If you already have family members that have asthma, allergies, and or weakened immune systems; chemical laden cleaners will further aggravate their health problems.HG Labs family of green cleaners: Brightly Green, Harmony Aromatherapy, Baby Harmony, are 100% all natural, sustainable and non-toxic.
