AWARENESS

Is There Motor Oil in YOUR TOOTHPASTE?
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it?
Cosmetics, shampoo, body lotion, laundry detergents and softeners, furniture polish, pesticides, toothpaste, fertilizers, city water, plastic storage containers and even some foods contain deadly ingredients. The problem today is that most products are made from petrochemical derivatives of nonrenewable crude oil. What is wrong with that? It’s what petrochemicals do to the nervous system and hormones that is the problem. “Neurotoxins are so called because they are toxic to your nervous system. The core of your nervous system is your brain, which not only affects thinking and feeling but regulates every system in your body. When your nervous system is damaged, your entire body can be affected,” said Debra Lynn Dadd, an internationally-recognized consumer advocate specializing in identifying products that are safe and environmentally responsible. Are you tired all the time? Sadly, you may be causing yourself to feel this way because you are using everyday household products that contain toxic ingredients. In some of these products, the neurotoxins, often derived from petrochemicals, can even act as mutagens when found in sufficient amounts. That means these substances can change the genetic coding in cells. Other product ingredients are not harmful by themselves, but when combined with ingredients humans often intake, they can be dangerous. Finally, many of these neurotoxins come from the same petrochemicals that cause cancer.

What’s the Big Deal?
Simple contact with petrochemicals and toxins is enough for them to get into your bloodstream. “In just 26 seconds after exposure to chemicals, they can be found in every organ in the body” according to an EPA flyer called “Top 10 ‘Killer’ Household Chemicals”. That’s why many medications, even some life-saving medications, are applied to the skin instead of being injected. It’s a great way to get medicine working quickly. Unfortunately, it is also the way many products with harmful ingredients affect the body. Many lotions, cosmetics and other products have a mineral-oil base—and mineral oil is a petrochemical. Mineral oil is such a common ingredient that you are probably applying this petrochemical to your skin daily.
