One of the main selling points which led me to sign up with my current company was the wide assortment of non toxic household cleaning products that they offered. During a company presentation, it was mentioned that there are so many toxic ingredients in most name brand cleaners that using these products on a daily basis is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day! This is now suspected to be partially responsible for the increase in lung cancer rates among non-smokers in recent years. They are also a hazard to those with asthma.
Some other disturbing statistics that I learned are:
Women who work at home have an ~50% higher cancer risk compared to those who work outside of the home. This is largely due to the toxicity of many popular household cleaning and disinfectant products.
Women who clean houses for a living are at an 80% increased risk.
Toxic chemicals in household cleaners are three times more likely to cause cancer than air pollution.
Within 26 seconds after exposure to chemicals such as those found in cleaning products, traces of these chemicals can be found in every organ of the body.
These above mentioned statistics are not simply false claims made up by the company to sell products. This information is readily available from multiple online sources.
For my April order, I purchased an all purpose cleaner, disinfectant, and an air freshener to replace some of the older products I had in my home. These products are economical as well since they are very concentrated, sometimes up to 12x. I especially like the new air freshener since it is a “tropical sorbet” fragrance. It is also available in Tuscan Orange and Sea Salt and Vanilla varieties. As you can see from the labels, the cleaners contain no chlorine bleach, ammonia, toxic chemicals, formaldehyde or phthalates. These substances are also known to have harmful effects on the body, as noted above.
