Keeping the Heat on Our Efforts to Simmer the Poisonous Sizzling of Our Planet
Last week, we had a summer recap of steps to take for a safer and healthier world. Hopefully, you found the suggestions to optimize your family’s wellness helpful. Now that your skin is protected and the children’s “bug away” needs are met, you can sit back and relax, content to enjoy the last few days in the Northeastern sun with assurance of less chemicals and toxins.
Now is NOT the time to let our efforts chill out with the oncoming bombardment of back to school and fall weather.
This month, the evidence of the necessity of staying diligent to what we allow in our home, put in our mouths, and apply to our bodies, was literally piling up on my desk.

The Poison Papers Expose Decades of Collusion between Industry and Regulators over Hazardous Pesticides & Chemicals
Watchdog Groups Digitize and Release 20,000 Documents for Public Review
The Bioscience Resource Project and the Center for Media and Democracy today are releasing a trove of rediscovered and newly digitized chemical industry and regulatory agency documents stretching back to the 1920s. The documents are available at PoisonPapers.org.
Together, the papers show that both industry and regulators understood the extraordinary toxicity of many chemical products and worked together to conceal this information from the public and the press. These papers will transform our understanding of the hazards posed by certain chemicals on the market and the fraudulence of some of the regulatory processes relied upon to protect human health and the environment.
I skimmed through some of these documents to look for studies that showed toxicology data and cover up…it’s there…. all 20,000 documents worth!
This is probably the most sustainable evidence and documentation of why I’m so passionate about this topic!
I’m trying to get the message out there to all who will listen:
We need to take matters into our own hands to protect the well-being of ourselves, our loved ones, and our environment!!
We’ve come to that critical point where we need to consider the accountability of our purchases as impacting the negative trajectory of an unlivable poisoned planet and sick and sterile children.
No mincing words. This is important and the solution is being made simpler as more companies rise to the challenge and consumers demand better!
Where We Stand Now
For those who want more data on the imperative nature of my plea, I’ve provided some my research reviews this month. Click here to read more.
For those of you who have been convinced already and are ready for a break from the dirty, dreary, news, here’s my hopeful message below.
Help Me Obi-Wan Kenobi, Are You My Only Hope?!!
No, no, no, we don’t need Obi, remember?!
Behind every circumstance, there’s an opportunity.
“Obi-Wan can go back to using the Force to fight imperial troops. We got this.”
Thanks to the power of nurture combined with nature, we now know healthy choices cannot only mitigate and prevent diseases, but actually “turn on” the right genes and “turn off” unwanted ones through epigenetic changes. This definitely shakes up the old viewpoint that “genes are destiny,” or that we are victims of circumstance, with some tasty salt for a more palatable plate of hope. We have the power to move from The Disease Delusion and into a vibrant, full life.
We can, and will, provide a safer planet and healthier world with non-toxic personal care and household products that don’t contribute to more air and environmental pollution. Think of when we will have a world without everyday headlines such as this, “Rush hour pollution may be more dangerous than you think.”
Stay tuned…part two of my Seedlings obsession, based on non-toxic products that support the health of our children, is coming up!
