Exposure to Toxic Chemicals is the #1 Health Problem in the World Today

Virtually EVERY Health Problem Has Now Been Associated With Toxic Chemical Exposure

If you want to protect your health, live longer, look more beautiful, improve your sex life, lose weight, think more clearly, or improve your physical, mental, and spiritual condition in any way, becoming free of toxic chemicals will help.

Want to save money on health care costs? In early 2010, the organization Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families released a report called The Health Case for Reforming the Toxic Substances Control Act.  According to this study, 133 million people in the USA—almost half of all Americans—are now living with chronic diseases and conditions related to toxic chemical exposures, which now account for 70% of deaths and 75% of US health care costs. They calculate that if only a fraction of toxic chemicals were removed from consumer products, it would save the U.S. health care system an estimated $5 billion every year.

The good news is that it is possible to be free from the harmful effects of toxic chemicals in consumer products and your environment. There are three basic steps. These are discussed abundantly throughout this website.

Compact Fluorescent Lights May Save Energy but Can Harm Your Health

On Mondays and Fridays I replay a selection from the archives of past shows.

My guest today is Paul Wheaton, who is well-known in Permaculture circles. I invited him to be a guest on the show because he wrote a great article about why we shouldn’t use compact fluorescent bulbs, even though they are being heavily promoted by environmentalists to save energy. Paul believes, as I do, that we shouldn’t do something toxic to achieve some other goal, but rather find a solution that supports the entire ecosystem, including the humans. So today we’re going to talk about how CFL’s can harm your health and what else you can do to save energy that is toxic-free. www.richsoil.com/CFL-fluorescent-light-bulbs.jsp#CFL-bulb-toxicity

Toxics in Essential Oils?

Diana-and-JimToday my guest is Diana Kaye. She and husband James Hahn are co-founders of their USDA certified organic business Terressentials.

They own a small organic farm in lovely Middletown Valley, Maryland and have operated their organic herbal personal care products business there since 1996.

Prior to Diana’s cancer, they were involved in commercial architecture in Washington DC. Diana and James are proud to be an authentic USDA certified organic and Fair Made USA business. They are obsessive organic researchers and artisan handcrafters of more than one hundred USDA certified organic gourmet personal care products that they offer through their two organic stores in Frederick County, Maryland, through a network of select retail partners across the US, and to customers around the world via their informative web site. www.debralynndadd.com/debras-list/terressentials

 Within each one of us is an immeasurable capacity for love, understanding, compassion, creativity, joy, and all positive qualities. The tragedy of illness is that it prevents the full expression of outgoing healthy emotions and creative abilities… I feel that the achievement of health is worth considerable effort and expense because it can add happiness to our lives and to others, can help us to know love and warmth, song, laughter, and music, to experience the joy of creativity and the satisfaction of accomplishments well done.
