A Chance to Help Make a Difference....

I'll be the first to admit that about two years ago I was a clueless consumer and stuck in my old ways!

This video from Healthy Child Healthy World, is one of my favorites because it highlights a short story that resonates with many parents and home owners today. If a family member or someone you  know suffers from chronic illness like cancer, asthma, nervous disorders, birth defects, ADD, Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders that can range from headaches and dizziness to Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease, please take a look at this video.

If you are already taking necessary precautions to maintain a healthier home environment, I encourage you to please share your practices and let's help each other to live inside a healthier home that is within your control. There are so many alternatives to healthier choices and so many wonderful solutions available to support healthy living and improve our quality of life just by changing some simple, everyday consumer habits!

Thank you Healthy Child Healthy World for this overview and appreciate how it shows us why scientists and doctors are discovering that there is a connection between our daily use of household chemicals and the increasing numbers over the last 20 years of children, household pets and loved ones who are suffering from long term, chronic health problems.

Let's start to look at what we choose to bring into our homes and begin changing some simple habits by educating, informing, and protecting our families, children and friends. Getting the facts is the first step!

To your healthy home and healthy habits!

That is a terrific video that was put together that can really hit home and help educate people on the dangers of toxic chemicals in their home. Thank you for sharing!

I absolutely love this video, it actually makes me tear up every time! It's sad that the manufacturers are not held to a very high standard and that labeling laws are there to protect the company, not the consumer. It's so important for us (parents/consumers) to be aware, get educated and pass on information to others!
