Toxins are EVERYWHERE in our Children’s Lives

Do you have the resources to remove the toxins from the products you use every day? – Actually you do…

Most products bear the warning “Keep Out of Reach of Children” in bold type on the label. As consumers, we believe that if our children don’t ingest these products they will not be harmed by them. Consider though that the most common methods of exposure are through the skin and respiratory tract.

Children are frequently in contact with the chemical residues housecleaning products leave behind, by crawling, lying and sitting on the freshly cleaned floor. Children, especially infants and toddlers, frequently put their fingers in their mouths and noses, increasing risks for exposure. When infants eat solid food, how common is it that the food is placed directly on a high chair tray that has just been wiped down with a household cleaner or dish detergent?

Another factor is that, pound for pound, children’s’ exposure levels are higher than adults’ because, although the amount of chemicals in an exposure remains equal, children’s bodies are smaller so the concentration is stronger, essentially. Also, their immune systems are still developing. Thus, children are probably the highest risk population for chemical exposures through cleaning products.

For many of these same reasons, pets may also be at risk. Other populations with a pronounced risk are breast cancer victims, the elderly, asthma and allergy sufferers and those with compromised immune systems.

Follow the link to read more, but it is so much more than that – we are all living and working, running & playing 24 hours a day and many days it seems we’re doing it all  just to keep our heads above water.  We, as a society, suffer from burn-out, disappointment and sheer exhaustion and we find ourselves reaching out for anything that will bring a little relief and a little peace to our lives, our thoughts, our very beings.

When we have good news – there are only 2 reasons we don’t share it with someone. Because either we really don’t love or care for that person, or we have no confidence in our message.

February – Heart Health Month

We all have women in our lives whose very breath fills us with joy…But, it has been found that women have very different symptoms of heart attacks. If you turn to this page and are experiencing the symptoms listed below – CALL 911 – don’t wait…

Women’s symptoms not as predictable as a man’s…

According to Patricia A.Grady, PhD, RN, Director of the NINR, “Increasingly, it is evident that women’s symptoms are not as predictable as men’s. This study offers hope that both women and clinicians will realize the wide range of symptoms that can indicate heart attack. It is important not to miss the earliest possible opportunity to prevent or ease AMI, which is the number one cause of death in both women and men.”

The women’s major symptoms prior to their heart attack included:

•Unusual fatigue – 70%
•Sleep disturbance – 48%
•Shortness of breath – 42%
•Indigestion – 39%
•Anxiety – 35%

Major symptoms during the heart attack include:

•Shortness of breath – 58%
•Weakness – 55%
•Unusual fatigue – 43%
•Cold sweat – 39%
•Dizziness – 39%

In other words, there really is no definitive symptom for either before or during a heart attack for women. We all have experienced these occurences and many of them all at the same time. But, with time so valuable when you are in the middle of a heart attack.

According to the http://www.womenshealth.gov/

Do women need to worry about heart disease?

Yes.
Among all U.S. women who die each year, one in four dies of heart disease. In 2004, nearly 60 percent more women died of cardiovascular disease (both heart disease and stroke) than from all cancers combined. The older a woman gets, the more likely she is to get heart disease. But women of all ages should be concerned about heart disease. All women should take steps to prevent heart disease.

Both men and women have heart attacks, but more women who have heart attacks die from them. Treatments can limit heart damage but they must be given as soon as possible after a heart attack starts. Ideally, treatment should start within one hour of the first symptoms.

With the necessity for heart health it is critical that we do all we can to keep our hearts as healthy as we can.
