New research by the University of Washington shows that scented laundry detergents and fragrances are hazardous to your health. The study looked at six of the leading laundry products and air fresheners and found that all of these products emitted nearly 100 disease-promoting volatile organic compounds and none of these chemicals were listed on the product labels. One of my books, Clinical Purification, discusses ways in which volatile organic compounds lead to disease in the body, including cancer. It is important to test for toxic chemicals and toxic damage in the body, and to detoxify the body as a means of preventing diseases in the future. As this research study reveals, it is also important that we use non-toxic household products to minimize our exposure to disease-promoting chemicals. Fortunately there are lots of them available these days. Some of my favorites include Thieves household cleaner and wipes (you can use the # 931983 to order the products direct from the manufacturer) and products by Seventh Generation.
