Recap to post on Toxic Living
A new, independent study based on 20 years of research reveals a sobering fact: cleaning your home with national brand cleaners significantly damages lung tissue. Nearly all of the national brand cleaning products you buy at the grocery store are made with a multitude of harmful chemicals. According to the study, some of the likely culprits are ammonia, chlorine bleach, and quaternary disinfectant compounds—among many others. The study also showed that cleaning with products that contain dangerous chemicals as little as once per week was as damaging over time to respiratory health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years!
When the study, which was conducted by 28 top researchers from nine countries was peer-reviewed and published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, it drew international media attention.
Here is just a sampling of the many stories that summarized the study’s findings:
After a thoughtful review of the study’s conclusions, we’re convinced you’ll see the urgency in removing national brand cleaners from your home and replacing them with the safer, more effective alternative—EcoSense.
EASE OF TRANSITIONING
A clean home. Who needs it?
After a new, independent study concluded that cleaning your home as little as once a week with national brand cleaners was as dangerous for your lungs as smoking a pack a day for twenty years, some parents are seriously wondering if cleaning the house is worth it at all. And who would blame them?
If adult lungs suffer when we breathe in the dangerous chemicals of national brand cleaning products, what about the developing lungs of children?
Yes, it’s just what you suspected: toxic chemicals are extremely dangerous for your children.
Here is what you need to know about hazardous chemicals and your child’s lungs:
• While toxins threaten everyone’s health, infants and children are especially sensitive to toxins and are very susceptible to air pollution
• Children are more vulnerable to chemicals (pound-by-pound because of their smaller body weight)
• Children’s bodies are less able to detoxify because their organs are not fully developed
If the hazardous chemicals in national brand cleaners are affecting adult respiratory health, imagine what they are doing to children who live in the same home, eat in the same kitchen, bathe in the same bathrooms, walk on the same floors, and breathe the same air! Their little lungs—so pure and clean—should be breathing air that is equally as pure and clean.
Giving up on cleaning all together (as tempting as that may sound some days) is not the answer. Living in filth comes with its own frightening threats to children’s health.
The good news is, it’s possible to provide your little ones with the home environment they deserve—freshly scrubbed, tidy and clean (even disinfected)—without harsh, toxic, organ-damaging chemicals.
Melaleuca scientists formulated EcoSense products to get your house sparkling clean without ammonia, chlorine bleach, quaternary disinfectants, or other dangerous chemicals. In fact, our cleaning products are so safe that no child safety caps are required.
You can have a clean home that is also toxin-free! Only EcoSense is the safer, more effective alternative.
HERE IS A GREAT WAY TO “START” THINKING ABOUT A QUICK TRANSITION

Much of life happens on the floor. It’s the foundation of all family activity and the gateway to your home. It’s where everyone gathers for games, homework, story time, and relaxing. It’s the playground for your children and the highway for family pets. You want your floors to be welcoming to bare feet, five-second rules, and everyone who stops by. Life on beautiful floors is a beautiful thing.

This company does things Right! I’m amazed at the quality of their products and use them all! I’ m so fussy about unknown products and their efficacy, their lasting strength, the company itself.! I came from a family who were clean fanatics, so naturally I keep my home the same way! Well almost as clean as my mom!! In this day and age, there is so much sickness, and germs, and diseases out there that you just never know what will inhabit your home.
I learned that long ago while I was teaching! I constantly went to the doctors having “things” checked out for fear of catching something it would take months to get over. Who can afford that when your a single female supporting yourself? Not me for sure!
I would love for you to visit me on :
