A MUST See Site!

Do you ever wonder why so many people are getting sick these days? I don't mean just the flu bug I mean the more serious stuff like allergies to diseases. It seems like many little people these days are getting sick and dying from serious illnesses and it breaks my heart. Cancer is a biggie. I've been doing some research lately on health since I'm dealing with my own issues and have come across some interesting sites. One is the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database. If you haven't checked it out before I think you should. In my opinion the site contains very valuable information on items that can greatly affect our health. There is a ton of information on there. One statement that jumped out at me was that nearly 80% of cosmetics have not been evaluated for safety. What? You would think if it is in a store, a brand name even that it should be safe to use. Ha! Boy was I wrong. I think this world has become way too money hungry because so many of the products we use are hazardous! Money is such a priority these days which is so sad. Anyway, that's a whole different story, back to the site. I about fell off my chair when I typed in my favorite chap stick and it was a high risk, hazardous item! Chap stick? Seriously?! That is something I use all the time and even let my daughter use cuz she wants to be like mommy and where "lip stick". I'm not letting her touch it after seeing the risks.

You are able to type in products that you use on a daily basis, such as toothpaste, hair products, skin care, make up, baby products... the list goes on. It will show you if your items are safe. Just check it out HERE, I bet you'll learn something!
