Laundry & Household Products

According to the book, "The Safe Shoppers Bible", many common household products  contain known carcinogens and/or neurotoxins. Carcinogens are chemicals that cause cancer. Neurotoxins are chemicals that adversely affect the nervous system reducing emotional well being, mental alertness, coordination and other functions associated with intelligence.

The average home today contains 62 toxic chemicals — more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century. More than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced since WW II. Less than 2% of synthetic chemicals have been tested for toxicity, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects, or birth defects. The majority of chemicals have never been tested for long-term effects.

Health Effects of Chemical Exposure Chemical exposure presents a real danger to you and your family's health and well-being.

ADD/ADHD is epidemic in schools today. Behavioral problems have long been linked to exposure to toxic chemicals and molds.

Chemicals are attracted to, and stored in fatty tissue. The brain is a prime target for these destructive organics because of its high fat content and very rich blood supply.

There are more than 3 million poisonings every year. Household cleaners are the Number ONE cause of poisoning of children. The top three culprits according to Poison Control: Household cleaners, bleach and medications.

The EPA says only a fraction of the more than 75,000 registered chemicals have gone through testing for human health concerns.

Stamp Gum Recipe by Shawndra on GFCF Diet list: 

If your kids like stickers you can make your own by cutting pictures out of magazines or color books or printing them off of your computer & use this stamp gum.

1 packet (1/4ounce) unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon cold water
3 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 tsp. white corn syrup or cane syrup or veg glycerin
1/2 tsp lemon extract

In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin into cold water. Put aside until softened. Pour softened gelatin into boiling water & stir until completely dissolved. Add corn syrup & lemon extract. Mix well. Makes 4 ounces. Brush gum thinly onto the back of a stamp. When dry, moisten the stamp & apply it to paper. This gum will gel overnight. To return it to a liquid state, warm container of gum in a pan of hot water. If stored in a tight jar it will keep several months.
