It’s not just what we eat!

Unfortunately, our toxic exposure is also from our use of personal care products — cosmetics, skin care, etc.  It’s unfortunate that our government regulations don’t provide for truthful labeling and products free of known toxins.  The result is that we all (men, women and children) carry these in our blood stream and fatty tissues, and ultimately, they take their toll on our health.  This video, “The Story of Cosmetics” (from the popular, “Story of Stuff Project”) is worth watching.  After you watch, grab your smartphone and download the free app “Skin Deep” from the Environmental Working Group.  Key in a product name or scan the barcode and get critical information on more than 69,000 personal care products.  Here’s a short article that will give you more detail on “Why This Matters”.
