natural Cleaning

According to the Organic Consumer Organization, “In 2000, cleaning products were responsible for nearly 10% of all toxic exposures reported to U.S. Poison Control Centers, of these, 120,434 exposures involved children under six, who can swallow or spill cleaners stored or left open inside the home( How Toxic, n.d.).”  Most store bought cleaning products contain chemicals that are:

1.  Carcinogens -Carcinogens cause cancer and/or promote cancer’s growth. 

2.  Endocrine disruptors – Endocrine disruptors mimic human hormones, confusing the body with false signals.  Exposure to endocrine disruptors can lead to numerous health concerns including such as fertility, premature puberty, miscarriage, menstrual problems, challenged immune systems, abnormal prostate size, ADHD, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and certain cancers.

3. Neurotoxins – Neurotoxins alter neurons, affecting brain activity, causing a range of problems from headaches to loss of intellect (Household Cleaning, n.d).”

The dangers of just having these chemicals in your home are enough to want to toss them in the trash.
