Are you slathering your body in toxic chemicals?

This week I want to focus on all of the chemicals we place into our body and all of the waste we create through the use of cosmetic products. Our personal care products are supposed to make us cleaner right? But what if they are really making us dirtier and exposing us to toxic chemicals?

If you do not have time to watch Annie Leonard's short introduction, you can start simply by going into your bathroom and see if you can identify any of the ingredients in your toothpaste, shampoo, soap, or shave cream. If you cannot pronounce or understand the chemistry list on the back of the bottles, don't worry, you will soon.

  1. Man, this is informative but...depressing. Sometimes the stuff you need to worry about gets overwhelming. But this is a good reminder that you have to pay attention.
