Health & Science

All of us are exposed to toxic chemicals through our everyday use of cosmetics and personal care products as well as through the air we breathe, food we eat, water we drink and a variety of products. We are exposed where we live, work, learn and play. As a result, we all carry toxic industrial chemicals inside our bodies. 

Learn about the latest research linking chemicals to diseases, and what you can do to protect yourself and your family.
