For a 'clean' New Year, evict these household toxins
Because we're being bombarded by toxins so regularly, it's no
coincidence that there is a nationwide increase in immune system disorders,
neurological problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple chemical
sensitivities, allergies, obesity and hormonal disturbances.
Though the EPA screens most products for at least some toxins, the
many loopholes in the system allow some less-than-safe products on the market.
Sadly, most people don't monitor for hazardous material content as closely as
they should. After all, most of us are just too busy to research every single
thing we buy on Consumer
But it's very important that you take precautions today. Effects
from exposure to toxins are difficult to identify and it can take years before
problems from exposure manifest themselves as disease or chronic ailment. Here
are a few of the best ways you can reduce your exposure to toxins in and around
Only use natural cleaning products. Most stores have
these available, or you can make your own cleaning products using safe
ingredients. Baking soda, Borax, soap powder, vinegar, lemon and hot water work
just as well as harsh chemicals but without coating your home in toxins.
Establish a "no-shoes" policy in your house. This reduces the
number of pesticides and other chemicals that you pick up outside from getting
in your home. Residuals of toxic chemicals can last for years in rugs and
Buy fresh, organic produce. Organic farmers are
prohibited from using toxic synthetic herbicides. For the freshest organic
vegetables, grow your own produce or choose foods
that are known to have lower pesticide-residue levels. For cleaning, sprinkle
baking soda on a clean sponge, wipe down fruits and vegetables, and rinse
thoroughly. Baking soda has mild (and safe) disinfectant qualities.
Get rid of air fresheners. Anything you breathe in eventually
ends up in your bloodstream. Plug-in scents or synthetically scented candles
may contain toxins linked to reproductive problems. As an alternative, choose
candles made with essential oils or fresh flowers to scent your home. Baking
soda and white vinegar works great as an odor absorber.
Ventilate. Modern homes and businesses are created to be leakproof,
which we want, but unfortunately, it also means that toxins are sealed in and
fresh air is sealed out. To ventilate indoor air in winter, open doors and
windows on opposing sides of the room to facilitate air flow for five to 10
Check your cosmetics. Opt for cosmetics with mineral-based
pigments and natural oils. Choose soaps and shampoos free of synthetic
fragrances and chemicals. Pay close attention to your deodorant/
anti-antiperspirant: many antiperspirants use aluminum-based compounds and
other chemicals, which are absorbed through the sweat glands. You can buy
aluminum-free antiperspirants, and there are many chemical-free brands of
natural deodorant sticks and sprays that don't contain dangerous parabens.
Ditch the mothballs. Since moths chew holes through clothing and other textiles,
people pack away these stinky repellents to kill them. But studies on one
active ingredient in some repellents causes cancer in animals. Cedar chips and
satchels of lavender keep moths at bay naturally.
Pass on the "stain-resistant" and "non-stick"
stuff. Anything that uses the words Scotchgard, Gore-Tex,
Stainmaster or Teflon contain PFCs. PFSc are used to make your pots and pans
nonstick and your clothes, upholstery fabric, carpets, backpacks and coats
water and stain repellent. They have been linked to hypothyroidism and

18 Best Foods for Your
Every year, the world seems to get a little crazier and a little
more dangerous. Maybe that's why rich people are buying doomsday bunkers and
stocking them with survival food.
If you have a doomsday bunker of your own, it’s important to
stock it with foods that are not only nutritious and tasty, but also
long-lasting and easy to store. In addition, they need to be foods that
can be eaten right out of the package or at least require minimal preparation.
With all that in mind, what are the best foods for your doomsday
bunker? Read on to find out...
