Do you have kids?... Check their bath products!
« on: March 17, 2009, 07:33:53 PM »
Check out this news article on USAToday.com about carcinogens in children's bath products.

Start of the article:  (If THIS doesn't trigger concern, then you're dead.)

Many children's bath products contain chemicals that may cause cancer and skin allergies, according to a report released Thursday by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

Twenty-three of 28 products tested contained formaldehyde, the report says. Formaldehyde — considered a probable carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency, — is released as preservatives break down over time in a container.



If this is the case for children's bath products, what keeps this from being true for adult bath products too?  Actually, I would bet that adult products are worse.

The chief idols in the desecrated temple of mankind are none other than the triple gods of Nationalism, Racialism and Communism, at whose altars governments and peoples, whether democratic or totalitarian, at peace or at war, of the East or of the West, Christian or Islamic, are, in various forms and in different degrees, now worshiping. ~~Shoghi Effendi, The Promised Day is Come

New and improved isn't always as it seems. This type of thing is exactly the point I was trying to make about prescription medications in the thread; "Makes no sense to me."
As God as my witness, I cannot tell a lie.  ;)

I believe it is true that the words "buyer beware" have never had more meaning than they do in todays market. Thanks.

And for that reason, we need, individually and collectively, to contact our Reps and Senators, specific departments of the government and the industry itself, that we are not going to tolerate the poisoning of ourselves anymore.  We have the power of the purse and we will start to read labels and quit buying items that harm us.
