Do you decorate your home with chemicals? Many Australians are unaware of just how many toxic chemicals can be found in their favourite household items. While retailers and commercials may constantly launch new household “essentials”, today we will explore some of the harmful toxic products we use every day and see if there are any natural alternatives.
Cleaning Products are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to household chemicals. Products including bleach, laundry detergents and oven cleaners all contain potential toxic chemicals.
Would you like to discover just how many chemicals are in your fruit and vegetables? Many people are completely unaware that their everyday fruit and vegetables contains many different chemicals including some of Australia’s most popular produce. But why on earth do we have to suffer from a potential chemical toxic intake in the first place?
The core to this problem is something called a pesticide, often advertised a fruit and vegetable saver. Pesticides are sprayed over crops at various stages before harvest in an attempt to prevent pests such as small animals or plant species from harming the crop. The problem is, although rain and sprinklers may attempt to wash away these chemicals, most produce that reaches our homes still contains traces of such substances.
