Awareness

Not to be alarmist, but chemicals are everywhere.  Many people are unaware of the vast number of chemical exposures they have daily.  These chemicals impact our immune systems, nervous systems and hormones.  They can cause autoimmune diseases, learning disabilities, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.  The first step is knowing what is out there so you can minimize your exposure.  These are some of the best sites for finding out more.
