Indoor Toxins that affect your health!

The average home today contains more chemicals than were found in a typical chemistry lab at the turn of the century, much of it stored under kitchen and bathroom sink's from bug sprays to detergents to oven cleaners. Most
poisonings happen over a long period of time by daily exposure to toxins that enter
the body through mouth or skin, and significantly, through breathing air
loaded with chemical out-gassing.
In a study conducted over a 15-year period, women who worked at home had a
54 percent higher death rate from cancer than women who worked away from
home. The reason? Daily exposure to hazardous chemicals in ordinary household

What are just some of the toxins the EPA and other researchers found in inside air?
Benzene from paint, new carpet, new drapes and upholstery
Ammonia in tobacco smoke and cleaning supplies
Chloroform from paint, new carpet, new drapes and upholstery
Formaldehyde from tobacco smoke, plywood, cabinets, furniture,
particleboard, office dividers, new carpet, new drapes, wallpaper, etc.
Sulphur dioxide, cyanide, and carbon monoxide from tobacco smoke
Trichlorethylene from paints, glues, furniture and wallpaper
Carbon tetrachloride from paints, new drapes, new carpet and cleaning supplies
Nitrogen dioxide from stoves, furnaces
Radon gas entering through foundations
Pollen from plants and trees
Mold spores from moisture and bacteria
Dust mites from dust and bacteria

Bacteria from all areas of the home Exposure to these chemicals resulted in:
headaches, memory loss, slow poisoning pulmonary irritation, fatigue,
drowsiness, eye, skin and nasal irritation, dizziness, depression, respiratory
irritation, gynecological problems, shortness of breath, cancer and bronchial

For the first time in history, it's safer to be in the wilderness than in your own home.


For pennies a day, add a whole house Air Purifier and Mold Reducer so you can breathe fresh air again!

Why should you switch to SAFE Cleaners

The Natural Health Magazine reports there is a definite health connection to the hazardous chemicals in your home. Here are five prime examples:

a) All Purpose Cleaners (such as Fantastik or Formula 409): Many popular household cleaning solultions like Fantastik & Formula 409 contain a synthetic solvent and grease cutter called butyl cellosolve. This hazardous petroleum-based chemical can irritate your skin and eyes, and repeated exposure to it can cause permanent liver and kidney damage, and impair the body's ability to replenish blood supplyHealthy Alternative of Choice... Shaklee Basic-H All-Purpose Cleaner
b) Bathroom or Countertop Cleaners (such as Ajax or Comet): Traditional scouring cleansers like Ajax & Comet contain crystalline silica, an eye, skin and lung irritant, classified as "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen" by the National Institute of Environmental Health Science. Chlorine, commonly used, is also extremely harmful to the respiratory system.Healthy Alternative of Choice... Shaklee At-Ease Scouring Cleaner
c) Glass Cleaners (such as Windex or Glass Plus): Window cleaning sprays like Windex & Glass Plus contain ammonia, a suffocating gas, irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. Many like Windex and Glass Plus, contain butyl cellosolve, a NEUROTOXIN that's easily absorbed through the skin.Healthy Alternative of Choice... Shaklee Basic-H All Purpose Cleaner
d) Laundry Detertent (such as Tide, All, Gain, Dash, etc.): Most well known powders like Tide, All, Gain & Dash contain corrosives that can burn the eyes and skin. Other chemicals include sodium bisulfate (a corrosive that can cause severe eye, skin and respiratory irritation), ethoxylated alcohols (which may contain I-4-dioxane, which is "reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.)Healthy Alternative of choice... Shaklee Basic-L Liquid Laundry Concentrate
e) Dishwashing Detergent (such as Cascade, Sun Light, etc.): Two of the best selling brands of automatic dishwashing detergents, Cascade & Sun Light, contain phosphates and chlorine - two extremely toxic chemicals. Phosphates released into the environment rob lakes and ponds of oxygen, leading to the suffocation of aquatic plants and animals. Chlorine fumes are highly irritating to the eye, throat and respiratory tract. Inhaling them can cause headaches, burning eyes, and breathing difficulties. Healthy Alternative of choice... Shaklee Basic-D Dishwashing Concentrate

Avoid using Antibacterial Soaps that make you SLUGGISH! Triclosan, a key chemical ingredient in anti-bacterial detergents and soaps, is thought to suppress thyroid hormone metabolism.
