Endocrine Disruptors: The Silent Killers


Liberty V JusticeThank God I have Grit to write for now. They gave me a venue to write about my greatest passions: passing on information about truly living. (That means not being sick.)

There are dangerous toxins lurking in our everyday products.

I found out the hard way. Most of these things are cancer causing, and I had cancer many times. I also had major problems with my neurological system, my female reproductive system and a lot of other organs. I lost 200 pounds by 2009, and the healthier I ate, the sicker I became. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2011 (when I first started college). When I started drinking a lot more tap water, I got sicker. I switched to bottled water and read that some of the major companies lie to us and most of their water is tap water. I also found out that the plastic in the water bottles is bad for you. It usually has bpa (bisphenol a) and other harmful chemicals.

It’s cheaper to buy sustainable, natural products. One example: I use Dr. Bronner’s Castille soap. I use it for my hair, body wash, dishes, cleaning, laundry, I can even use it as toothpaste if I run out. ) Castile soap is not only versatile, but it’s cheap and lightweight. I get a 32 oz bottle from ThriveMarket.com and it’s under $15. I can take 1/8 of that bottle and put it in a sports water bottle, fill the rest with water and that’s my soap, hand soap, shampoo and laundry soap for the next week (or more). I don’t have to carry as much stuff, and it is much much lighter. Best of all, I know I’m worth it and I don’t have harsh chemicals on my skin, inside me or in my air.

When I became a member, and subsequently a partner with Thrive Market their magazine article reminded me about this stuff. They offer natural products besides food, like make up, body wash, everything. You can go on their website to read the full article, along with plethora of health-empowering information and recipes. I got my recipe for the superfood fudge from their holiday magazine.

Isn’t your family worth the time and effort to read the labels? Shouldn’t we be informed about what we’re paying our hard earned cash for, and what we’re bringing into our households?
