By Lisa-Dawn Sheridan, The Flower Child

In a world where many do not understand how to buy products, use them, and avoid toxicities, Healthy Home attempts to educate others on the widespread use of chemical poisons in our daily lives.

With over 80,000 unsafe chemicals in our air and water in which we consume everyday, we can make better choices with the products we purchase and use. We cannot change the industrialized modern world and all of its shortcomings, but we can choose better products today.

My hope is that this will help families across the world to see that they can live a higher quality of life buy simply making better choices in kitchen cleaners, bathroom products, and cosmetics.

    • Parabens can be found in shampoos, commercial moisturizers, shaving gels, cleansing gels, personal lubricants, topical pharmaceuticals and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives in some products. Basically, a huge percentage of the products you buy for everyday use contain some form of paraben, so it can be difficult to find products that do not use them.
  • 14.
    • For starters, Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers.
    • In the July 2002 issue of the Archives of Toxicology , Dr. S. Oishi of the Department of Toxicology, Tokyo Metropolitan Research Laboratory of Public Health reported that exposure of newborn male mammals to butylparaben “adversely affects the secretion of testosterone and the function of the male reproductive system.
