Hi, I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend.
I'm posting a link to a very important article from EWG.
I live with MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivies) and it is very difficult to function in society with it, as anytime people like me are around people with any kind of chemical smells, we get sick. Many people get very hurt when you mention it to them. People that suffer from this ailment look normal, and people who don't have it themselves find it very hard to believe.
We are often referred to as the canaries, since we are the first one feeling the effects. It happens more frequently with people that have any kind of auto immune diseases. The fact is, though, that anytime you can smell something it means the molecules are going into your nose, and consequently into your body. You couldn't smell it if it didn't. So everyone who can smell it is getting the chemicals into their bodies.
That is one of the reasons I wanted everyone to read this article, so that everyone is at least aware of the chemicals they are exposing themselves to, and everyone else. Remember also, that perfume and cologne are not the only things with "fragrance" added. The list is endless, most things that you use daily probably have many dangerous chemicals in them.
I'll be posting more about this important topic in the future. I hope you read the article, and peruse the rest of EWG's website.
