MOTHER'S MILK STRONGLY EFFECTED BY PURITY OR TOXICITY OF HER SKIN AND HAIR CARE PRODUCTS



This information came in today from http://sunfood.com:
"We are avid ingredient readers, and we hope you are too. We know that anything you put on your skin can be absorbed into your tissues and even into your blood stream. A 2010 study by a Swiss research team confirmed this with some scary findings. The team tested the breast milk of nursing mothers and found that 85% of the samples contained dangerous chemicals commonly found in commercial cosmetics and sunscreens. Since none of these women were eating their makeup or sunblock there is only one way the compounds got into their bodies: through their skin.

What does this mean for the health of these mothers or, even more importantly, the babies drinking their milk? At this point, no one really knows. What is known is that many of these same chemicals are known to be carcinogenic (cancer causing), and can also disrupt our endocrine system by interfering with hormone activity."

If you are using hair or skin care products that contain chemicals, you are likely putting yourself and your baby at risk. For those open to addressing the need for a change of products, I recommend going to any health food store and buying Aubrey Organics. All of their products are made from organic herbs and the ingredients will never harm you or your baby.

Keep it safe and pure. That's what love would do.
