Why Do We Allow This?

      What strange, possibly toxic, chemicals are in those Bounce sheets you put in the dryer with your clothes and linens? 

     Breathing unknown chemicals 24 hours a day:  what’s that doing to you?   Solution:  put up a clothes-line and hang laundry out in the sun; or just dry them in the machine without adding chemicals.         

     What chemicals are in those plastic plug-in, “smell good” thingies?  Or scented candles?  More chemical exposures you can do without.

     How about “anti-bacterial” soap and detergent?  Their use is creating super-bad bacteria as bacteria develop immunity to antibiotics.  Please don’t use them. 

     Your make-up;  do you know what’s in those formulas, and what they might do to your health?  They used arsenic in lipsticks for years; still might, for all I know.  You look beautiful as you are; a bees-wax-based cream is all you need to alleviate dry skin.

     Dry-cleaning chemicals – you breathe them in whenever you wear dry-cleaned clothes.  Solution:  wash everything (except certain leathers), including wool and silk, in cold water, and only cold water, in your machine or by hand, then hang them carefully out on the clothes-line  to dry.             

     Perchlorethylene dry-cleaning chemical is in the bodies of virtually all earth’s creatures, including you; it is poisonous to humans and other life forms.   There are cleaner dry-cleaning methods, but few dry-cleaners use them.  For your health, don’t use their services unless they’re one of the “cleaner” ones.   

     How about your food?  Unless you grow your own with no poisons, or buy only organic, you’ve got pesticides in there.  No, you can’t wash them off – they’re IN the food.  

     Corn and soy are in nearly all non-fresh foods today; you’ll be hard-pressed to find canned or other processed food without corn or soy in some form.    

     Unless they’re organic, corn and soy have likely been genetically-engineered with toxic bacteria’s DNA by chemical companies looking to sell more pesticides (the DNA-changed plants will allow more pesticide exposure before it kills them).   

     Your body accepts all of this as “food.”  The foreign DNA junk gets spread throughout your body’s cells.  Solution:  eliminate processed foods from your diet, or check labels carefully to make sure no corn or soy or canola oil are present, unless organic.  Or grow your own food.

     Oh, yes, the fake sugars.  You’re better off using maple syrup or honey or agave syrup; they’re natural foods, and just a few calories. 

      For a no-calorie sweetener, you can get the crushed herb Stevia at your health food store.  It’s extremely sweet; you need only a few grains to make coffee, tea, or hot chocolate taste sweet; no danger to your health, either.  

     BPA, a plasticizer used in baby toys, and as a lining in canned food, is known to be a hormone disrupter; it imitates estrogen (female hormone) in our bodies.  It can affect the sex organs of a child. 

     We’ve been locked in an epic battle with chemical companies for years; they don’t want to stop using it (it helps stop food spoilage in the cans, but it hurts us), we want them to stop using it.  Still ongoing.   

     Studies show that some chemicals put into processed “food” today actually turn off your body’s “I’m full” mechanism, so that you will keep eating.  This is not illegal. 

     Chemical companies have their people in high government places;  thus, they are permitted to keep poisoning us with pesticides and other toxic chemicals to enlarge their next quarter’s profits. 

     Occasionally, after a long battle, citizens get Congress to pass a wimpy law that forces food manufacturers to make some food safer.  Not often, though.  Our food system is in the grip of the moneymen.

     Two solutions present themselves:  grow your own and/or buy organic. 

     If you stop buying and using the other chemical-filled non-necessities above, you’ll save lots of money (especially on cosmetics) and be healthier, too.

Lawyer joke:
One afternoon, a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the road-side eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and got out to investigate.
He asked one man, “Why are you eating grass?”
“We don’t have any money for food,” the poor man replied. “We have to eat grass.”
“Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I’ll feed you,” the lawyer said.
“But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.”
“Bring them along,” the lawyer replied.
Turning to the other poor man he stated, “You may come with us, also.”
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, “But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me!”
“Bring them all as well,” the lawyer answered.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine.
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, “Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.”
The lawyer replied, “Glad to do it. You’ll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high.”
