What are the reasons to clean with organic products?
After all, all
products available have been tested and found to be safe. Each one is done
individually and of course they will be safe. How many people use
just one product in their home? Most probably use more than 10
different cleaning products for their home, many more for their hair and
bodies, use items to improve their yards, paint rooms--the list goes on
and on. What ends up happening is that we are using a multitude of
items and each is safe in their own right, but all added together causes
a big problem. As much pollution as there is outside in larger
cities, indoor pollution is now worse! Less physical activity
means less air exchange. Poorer eating habits means our bodies are
less able to handle toxins. We are taking in more and more toxins,
with less and less ability to naturally detoxify! If you want to
explore more of this, rent or purchase the video "The Gerson Miracle".
It has an entire section on toxins that are in our homes. No,
these toxins weren't always in our homes. Two things have happened over
many decades. Houses have become tighter and tighter which means
toxins can no longer 'escape' and people love their air conditioning so
do not open windows as they used to--again low air exchange leaving
toxins inside the house. The other is that companies have produced
more and more toxic cleaning products--due to demand! We all want
products that really work! Companies develop products that meet
that demand. There is little doubt that companies have been
producing ever more toxic products over the years. The 'green'
push has started to change that, but most of the people I know actually
avoid green products. They want products that work and when I talk
to the public, their idea is if it is safe, it won't work as well.
To some extent they are probably correct so there is a trade-off.
Over time 'green' products have become better as well so they have
become more mainstream. It is up to you to figure out what you can
live with and what trade-offs you are willing to accept.
