One thing we can all do to ensure health is to avoid products with added artificial fragrances or flavours. This isn’t as easy as it sounds. They’re found in the most unexpected products (vitamins, prescription drugs, lip balm, perfume, toothpaste, laundry detergent — the list goes on and on).
I don’t know about you, but I get very tired of seeing all the commercials on television pushing us to artificially “perfume” our indoor air. Indoor air is actually full of pollutants. We don’t need plug-ins (using elecricity), sprays or stick-ons and we certainly don’t need the toxins they all contain. Phthalates are found in a wide array of consumer products, including cosmetics and fragrances, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, vinyl children’s toys, automobiles, paints, and interior finishes.
