Every choice we make has the potential affect our health – from the foods we eat to the chemicals we expose ourselves to.
Many of the chemicals in our homes have NOT been safety tested. Here is a chemical factsheet.
It’s been established for a long time that chemicals in our environment are linked to the onset of many diseases, including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Cancers, autoimmune and thyroid diseases (e.g. Sharpe and Irvine 2004)
Woman are more likely to have thyroid issues, likely due to exposure to endocrine (hormonal) disruptors in cosmetics e.g. parabens (Koeppe et al. 2015). Similarly, chemicals such as PCBs, BPA and pesticides have the potential to affect thyroid function (Pearce and Braverman 2009)

I am a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant because their products can improve your health
Around the home: I use microfibre cloths, mops and dusting cloths that ensure no chemicals are needed in my home. The fine microfibre in their cloths gathers up bacteria and mould as you wipe, then the embedded silver stop bacteria from growing – this method of cleaning is approved by the Food Standards Agency.
