Margie Jarvis speaks about the toxicology in our environment and the danger to us and our planet. We are in touch with chemicals that are toxic to us through our air, skin, and water.Evey minute of our lives we are surrounded by chemicals and we need to research what we put into our bodies, on our skin and use in buildings/ 250 billion tons of substances a year are being manufactured. It is a toxic avalanche.
PER YEAR JUS IN THE USA these are the statistics Manufactured chemicals 30 million tons. Plastic pollution into the oceans 9 million tons. Hazardous waste 400 million tons of waste a year, Coal, oil, and gas 400 billion tons of waste a year. Lost soil 70 billion tons Metals materials 75 billion tons per year. Mining and mineral waste 200 billion tons per year. Contaminated water 9 billion tons per year.Where does it go to?
What we need for life is Fresh air, fresh water, and arable soil and all these are being lost to toxins.We can make a difference by our choice of cosmetics and toiletries. When you shop always look at the ingredients. If any of the bad ones are present there may also be because there is obviously not produced with care about toxins.
Preservatives must be used but what kind should be approved by the Organic certification.
AVOID ANYTHING CONTAINING PARABANS, 60% of what you put on your skin ends up in your blood. LAUREL SULPHATE A FOAMING AGENT 0 VERY TOXIC TO THE PLANET.NICOTINE
Plant oils have fine molecules which can penetrate within the dermis and blood and promote cellular healing.
The original people like the Bushmen and the Aborigines knew what plants they could use which had healing properties… the synthetic version is cheaper but they are always the same and they are not effective or as effective.
Women are attracted to fragrances and when they are inhaled into the lungs they have an even stronger effect. The calmants and the stimulants like lemongrass which promote the feeling of well-being. The supermarkets have less than 10% of any food and toiletries on their shelves that are healthy for us and definitely terrible for the planet.
Once things are cheap, people are resistant to paying the higher price for the organic. WATCH OUT FOR THE LABELLING. Many that say Organic and Environmentally Friendly are far from that. Laurel sulfate is a foaming agent and in washing powders. They do not get this and the phosphates out and this becomes highly toxic to the river and sea life where it ends up. We then eat the sea life and get the toxins into us.Use SLS-FREE (Sodium Laurel Sulphate free) These use a coconut derivative instead which is natural and avoids environmental destruction.
WATCH OUT FOR COLOURANTS ESPECIALLY GREEN, RED, PURPLE. THEY ARE DAMAGING TO THE HUMAN BODY AND THE EARTH.
Most colorant is not natural because if they were from beetroot, for example, the color being alive would break down and that means it would make the color brown. So avoid coloring in food especially kids party food.
Parabans are connected to breast and other cancers. Yet everyone is using parabans.
The numbers are also an indication. You cannot get a soap from a supermarket. Only vegetable glycerine and then check that there is no palm oil or parabans as well. Ach ingredient is a toxic recipe that we should not be producing at all let alone using and disposing of on the planet.
AVOID PARAFIN. Why put petrol on your skin.It is drying and toxic. They are using the byproduct from crude oil, adding fragrance and alcohol emollients to hold it all in and stop coagulation/ All this is highly toxic.Massive chemical companies are making a fortune
134 000 man-made chemicals in the world. Probably now more as these are increasing by about 200 a year.
To stop this we need to understand and not to buy these.
Headaches and migraines – First look at what you are putting into or onto your body or environment.
In the past, people pressed the olives and pants and worked with nature.
Lavender’s healing properties origin.
We think we can trust the government to check these things for us but they do not check most things. The Trump administration has gone backward and now stopped the prevention of the use of asbestos, styrene and formaldehyde.
When you see the poisons in the plastic that we use even to make baby’s bottles. They were starting to regulate and now Trump is deregulating.
Because we are not stopping this, our planet is dying.
