Green, Greener, Toxins, Carcinogens – And this means WHAT?

Well, what it means is that all of those things we’ve been taught are “good” for us – is bunk!  We’re poisoning our bodies, our planet, and our families with the lies that the major manufacturers and advertisers have told us for decades.  Soap Operas were called that because advertisers had to wrap something around their advertisements – Some of the young people who read this will go “Yea, right!”…

Left side Jar: Tide 2X, Right side Jar: Melapower 6X

It’s true and those of my generation who are suffering the effects of these toxins we’ve brought in to our homes will attest that what I’m saying is true!

I found this funny in my quick research.

Tide doesn’t have any real difference from the others other than fragrance. All laundry detergents are mostly water, with surfactants (which basically lower surface tension on clothes to allow molecules to release), usually some enzymes which are targeted at specific common “dirty” material, and sometimes fabric softener.

For exact ingredients go to “Tide Laundry Detergent MSDS” . All products on the market are required to publish Material Data Safety Sheets.

& surfactants in detergents help remove organic compounds from a substance by making them dissolve more readily in the water.ter in which the substance is washed. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/surfactants)

Surfactants are largely made from the waste bi-products of the petroleum industry. Some time ago, scientists managed to combine propylene and benzene, producing sulphuric acid and then neutralise it by adding sodium hydroxide. The result was a product rather like natural soap and suddenly marketers were able to develop a new commercial must-have consumer line of detergents.

I actually found a blog posting that has great information about the levels of cancer-causing agents and hormone changing chemicals that are in our every  day products. http://www.pollutionissues.co.uk/additives-soaps-surfactants.html – The author ends with a Call To Action – We must start now to break the cycle we have been trained to believe was the only way to go.

This isn’t a joke and honestly there is nothing funny about it – although I truly wish there was!  Then writing this would be easy not having to search out the truth among all the ads, blogs, and websites that constantly send you back to the pollution/cancer-causing manufacturers. It’s amazing and sad…
