9780717131624: Cleaning Yourself to Death: How Safe is Your Home?

We diligently scrub, launder, deodorise and disinfect ourselves and our surroundings, in order to ensure our continued good health and well-being. But the shocking fact is that many of the products we use to ensure that we are clean and protected are made from highly toxic chemicals. We buy these products in good faith in supermarkets and shops and use them in our daily efforts towards good hygiene, unaware that they contain a range of ingredients known to cause, among other things, hormone disruption, mood swings, birth defects and even cancer. 'Cleaning Yourself to Death' takes a thorough look at the range of everyday cleaning products in our cupboards: what they contain, how they are sold and how we overuse them. Pat Thomas begins her campaigning book with comprehensive information about the skin and respiratory systems and how chemicals are absorbed through them. She then takes an in-depth look at the toiletries and household products we all use, and their adverse effects on our health. Full of practical, hard-hitting information, valuable tips on how to lessen our exposure to toxins and natural, effective alternatives, this book is a must for every home. Other books by Pat Thomas Headaches - The Common Sense Approach Pregnancy - The Common Sense Approach What Works, What Doesn't.
