Let's go toxic free!

Thad and I are taking the next step to living a toxic free life by switching over to all natural and organic beauty/body products. We already eat vegetarian, and have rid our home of most toxic cleaning items but now it is time to stop dumping chemicals onto our bodies. A friend recommended an awesome website called Cosmetic Data Base which offers toxicity ratings for over 78,000 products! Just type in the product you use and get the rating. It amazes me how many toxic chemicals are put into products and we dump them directly onto our heads, skin and our children. These chemicals cause cancer, skin diseases, asthma, allergies and overall unhealthy environments. Also, don't assume things are OK because the bottle says "natural." If you want to be forever changed... look up HEK-293. I won't tell you what it is... but I will tell you that it is added to many foods and beverages because it makes sugar taste sweeter. (When you google it, be prepared to be horrified!)
So today, take a look at what you are putting on your body and in your body, make some better choices, even small steps are better than no steps and Live Inspired Now!
