I share this graphic alot.
26 seconds is all it takes for the ingredients in your shampoo to be in your bloodstream.
26 seconds is all it takes for the bleach you were scrubbing the bathroom with to be found in your bloodstream.
26 seconds is all it takes for the ingredients that are harmful to you to start affecting you. These ingredients are slowly killings us. They are known carcinogens. Hormone disruptors. Allergy inducers and a list that goes on for paragraphs!!
They are the reason infertility is so high. Why cancer is still killing thousands. Why our systems are not battling the way they are supposed to. Why our insatiable quest for convenience is now our demise.
When I finally decided to read labels I was horrified. I was also incensed with myself for not doing it sooner. There is a statistic out there that the average female puts 250 toxic products into her system before she leaves the house!! 250?!?! 250 things that are harmful to you, to your children and your pets. It’s time for us to wake up!! It’s time to stop and take a big step back. Open our eyes and stop hurting ourselves. There’s enough out there that we can’t control, let’s grab the reins on what we can and do better. This topic seriously fires me up!! Our progress towards bigger, better and faster has turned us on ourselves. We are destroying the planet and ourselves right along with it.
I decided I should do better.
