Chemicals and Choices We make

Hi folks!

When I read about the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 in California requires that the Governor revise and republish at least once per year the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.  

Seriously, if we wonder how these days people are not as healthy as before despite the advancement in medical and healthcare. Does anyone realised how many types of chemicals we are exposing ourselves daily from the day we wake up, brush our teeth, clean our face, shower and drinking and eating from plastic made of BPA material, etc.

Check out our household products, skincare or even processed/junk food we have at home whether they appear in this Proposition 65 list of chemicals.

Time to take a close look and ditch the chemical that is adding the burden into our body detox system. Try to use glassware and not to reuse or even reheat the food in plastic containers. Reduce the dependent on canned and processed food and go for whole food as much as possible. Note: It's also a reminder to we can balance between health over convenience sake! Make the right choice!

Go now, take out the common toothpaste,  containers, or skincare and check on the list. How many can you identify:

Sadly, many medicines are also listed in the list.

Now can we do ourselves a favour by ditching the chemicals in our daily life and stay clean as much as we can to reduce the burden we are adding on to our body detox system?

I have since changed to use glassware more than plastic containers. It is cheaper in the long run 🏃 

Also, I have switched to chemical free toothpaste, skincare, laundry soap, washing detergents and trying to avoid the convenience products like canned and processed food.

Still got a lot to work on I must say as our family members are so used to all these food and products. But as a mom we must make the right choice for our family! Hopefully we are able to include more of the good and none of the bad starting from our home 🏠 

Cheers and have a chemical free life!
