Detoxify your life

October 2, 2008 by  

Toxins may exist in common household productsRecent news about toxins in plastic bottles, the water supply and common household cleaning products may cause people to feel a bit helpless about how to protect themselves against dangerous chemicals.

Nena Baker – author of The Body Toxic – gave Newsweek some suggestions for easy ways to limit your contact with toxins.

Filtering your water can help remove the small quantities of pollutants such as lead, arsenic and pesticides that make it into some communities’ water supplies, she says.

In the home, people should avoid paint that is made with volatile organic compounds that are linked with breathing problems, as well as steering clear of electronics that include flame retardants known as PBDEs, Baker advises.

She explains that shampoos and make-up products may also contain some toxic ingredients, while canned foods and some plastic containers could have been made with BPA – which has been linked with heart disease.

In some cases, it is simply a matter of going back to the basics. When seeking to control the amount of toxic substances that are present in your house, the article recommends that "it’s best to keep your house clean through regular dusting and vacuuming."
