There's a BIG misconception that losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is ONLY about what you eat. While the food you put on your plate is the BIGGEST component of weight loss and health, it's not the only factor.
A healthy life and maintaining a healthy weight also depends on:
Personal care, skincare and makeup products hit the shelves everyday and only 10% of the 13,000 chemicals in these products are tested for safety.
Personal care products are allowed to reach store shelves without any prior approval by any agency. Only after a product has demonstrated harm, has been misbranded or adulterated, the FDA take action.
Compounding this situation, the FDA also has made manufacturers responsible for ensuring the safety of the products they produce and those manufacturers are not required to share the tests that reportedly demonstrate the safety of these products with any Federal agency or the public.
What does this mean for a health-conscious person like yourself? When you use body lotion, deodorant, shampoo or nail polish, you may be applying harmful chemicals to your body, even if the product claims to be nontoxic and safe.
You may be surprised by the number of toxic chemicals that likely reside in your bathroom cabinets. The average woman in the U.S. uses 12 personal care products each day, containing nearly 168 different chemicals.
Until there is control over the chemicals used in personal care products, safety testing and regulation that protects you, it’s important you read the label on every personal care and cosmetic product you purchase.
