GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Our indoor air contains the nation's worst pollution, with the typical American home having chemical contamination levels 70 times higher than levels found outside, as reported by the EPA to Congress. In addition, women who work at home have a 54% greater risk of cancer than women who work outside the home. These disturbing results are from a 15 year study conducted by the Toronto Indoor Air Conference. One way to detoxify our homes is by making the switch to natural cleaning products.
What sense does it make to bring home organic food and prepare it in a kitchen that is ladened with the toxic chemicals which are found in most common cleaning agents? We are spraying toxins on our countertops, cookware and on produce to clean. Stop the madness!
There is a simpler, cheaper solution. One that requires minimal effort, less packaging, and does not contain toxins that can harm us, our families and our pets. It really is palm to forehead easy! Get started by coming to my class this week, Green Homekeeping.
Join week-three of the Cooking Simple: Living Well lifestyle classes! A new in-store educational series that will help provide solutions for those looking for a fresh, new approach to a healthy lifestyle.
Hosted by yours truly, Master Raw Food Chef, WOTV 4 Women's Healthy Eats Expert, Margaux Drake and full time wellness warrior for over twenty years.
