Chemical Reaction: Pregnancy and Cancer

Ready to explode over the amount of harmful chems in products? Be prepared to spontaneously combust over this info. In the next few days, the cancer panel will be releasing a 200-page report that focuses on chemicals and its relationship to cancer.  Did you know there are 300 contaminants in the umbilical cords of newborns?  Before babies are even born, they have chemicals running through their tiny bodies…eek!  This report will hopefully push mainstream America to realize the importance of going green and organic. Some of the panel’s solutions include eating food grown without pesticides or growth hormones as well as storing water in glass, not plastic containers due to BPA leeching.  To break down the science behind it – the cancer panel believes chemicals used in water, foods, and household products are the cancer-causing culprits.

We Greenista Girls have a few quick tips on how to green items in your house instantly.

  • Store water in glass, not plastic bottles – get some SIGG bottles for when you’re on the go.

  • Shop at your farmer’s market or the organic section of your grocery store.

  • Buy organic milk and eggs to avoid any growth hormones in your dairy products.

  • Use green household cleaners or make your own.

Greenista Cocktail Factoid: “Only a few hundred of the more than 80,000 chemicals in use in the United States have been tested for safety,” the report says. It adds:  “Many known or suspected carcinogens are completely unregulated.”
