How are you Kids doing in School?

Check out the following testimonial, its shocking what a serious and immediate effect chemicals we use everyday can have on our childrens' brain function.

Are Your cleaning products hindering your child's
academic performance?

Someone suggested we watch Toxic Brew, a news segment produced by a Canadian news station. (This can still be seen online at ) After watching this, the reality of what people were bringing into their home began to dawn on me. Only few months later, we heard about Dr. Doris Rapp, who researches the effects of harmful chemicals on children’s health. In one of her studies, she tested the effect of bleach on six-year-olds’ handwriting. I looked at the printed results, and was amazed at the evidence. Before a bottle of bleach was opened, students wrote their names fairly well. Then, with just an opened bottle of bleach in the room and the fumes wafting through the air, the children wrote their names dramatically different. Some wrote messy, some too small to read, and one even wrote backwards.

Doesn’t it make sense to investigate safer Products?

Why We Should Avoid Chlorine Bleach

Most people use a wide variety of cleaning
products, many of which contain toxic chemicals.

Chlorine bleach is potentially carcinogenic and
can damage the respiratory system.

Among its by-products are chlorinated hydrocarbons,
chloroform and trihalo-methanes, all of which
act like weak estrogens and cause breast cells
to divide more rapidly.

These by-products have been shown to cause
breast tumors in animals.
