Dr. Linus Pauling concluded that it is possible to
dramatically increase the health, and even the amount of
years a child will live.
What children are exposed to Environmentally And
Everything that comes in contact with their skin...will
eventually (and in many cases immediately) end up in the
child’s blood stream.
This is true for adults too!
Toxic chemicals enter the brain(confusion, lack of focus,
poor memory, headaches, depression, etc.)
Toxic chemicals enter the liver and other organs
(can set the stage for cancer, allergies, poor immune
system, miscarriage, reproductive problems. Etc.)
Today’s kids are exposed to more toxins than ever before in
Cleaning chemicals in the home; out-gassing from carpet
glue, furniture, synthetic clothing, thousands of chemicals
Poor water quality a problem in every state in the U.S..
Water is treated with Flouride and Chlorine. Both are
carcinogens and poisons.
Convenience foods; chemical vitamins, (like Flintstones)
The Air In Our Homes
Is Considered To Be One Of The “Top 5 Health Concerns”
According To The EPA.
There are poisons in the air in your home;
Dangerous Household & Personal Care Products
In industry, workers are required to wear special gloves,
goggles and even respirators when using some of the exact
same products found in just about every home. We use these
same chemicals at home with little or not protection or
Many poisonings happen slowly by gradual skin absorption
and by daily exposure to toxins in the air in the home.
(Nancy S. Green, “Stop Poisoning Our Children”, The Noble
Poisons from carpet, furniture, plastics, dry cleaning,
A baby crawling on the floor breathes the toxin equivalent
of 4 cigarettes a day from molds, mildew, fungi, outgasing
of carpets, dust mites, etc.
Why is our water such a concern?
Every year at least 255 metric tons of hazardous chemical
wastes are dumped into our nation’s environment. These
toxic substances find their way to the water table.
Many cancer causing chemicals are added to our drinking
water to “clean it up”.
Chlorine is a special problem.
“Research indicates the incidence of cancer is 44% higher
among those who use chlorinated water.”
Dr. Robert Harris, environmental scientist, White House
Advisory Council, 1980.
“There is an increased evidence for an association between
rectal, colon and bladder cancer and chlorinated drinking
water.” President’s Council on environmental Quality, Dec.
In addition to drinking pure water, make sure your child
gets enough water!
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue, and may
be the cause of joint and back pain in adults.
Even mild dehydration can trigger fuzzy short term memory,
or trouble focusing.
Drinking adequate water daily (your body weight divided by
2 in ounces. 100# person would need 50 ounces daily)
decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%; breast cancer by
79%, and bladder cancer by 50%.
Pure water flushes poisons out of our system. It’s the
natural answer for thirst.
Carbonated Beverages-Cause critically needed calcium to be
removed from the body.
Did you know what else “Coke” can be used for?
*To clean corrosion from car battery terminals
*To remove rust spots from chrome bumpers
*To loosen a rusted bolt (apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola
to the rusted bolt for several minutes)
Did you know that:
-Coke will dissolve a nail in about 4 days
-To carry Coca-Cola syrup concentrate the commercial truck
must use the Hazardous material cards reserved for Highly
Food today isn’t always real food. There are hundreds of
chemicals in food (we eat stuff we can’t even pronounce)
Lots of soils can’t grow healthy food any more.(we’ve used
too many chemicals and mis-managed our soil for too many
WAY too much sugar in our diets…. (ooops)
-10 teaspoons in Raisin Bran
-11 teaspoons in strawberry yogurt
-3 teaspoons in tomato soup
-8 teaspoons in Hi C
The primary ingredient in Flintstone’s is sugar.
Some Catsups and Peanut Butters are 25% Sugar.
(Now you know why Your Kids like them so much)
A kid can easily be eating 2 pounds of sugar every week.
(without ever taking the lid off the sugar bowl)
Some “Sugar Facts”
-It depletes the immune system
(12 tsp. Of sugar will decrease the immune system’s ability
to destroy bacteria by 60%. Start with a breakfast of
sugary cereal, a pop tart, and the immune system is already
operating below optimum.)
-It depletes the nervous system. Critical vitamins and
minerals that are needed for the nervous system are used up
as sugar is being processed by the body.
-It increases cholesterol. Raised insulin levels cause
LDLs (the bad guys”) to remain highly active, and keep the
“good guys” HDL from being used.
-It makes children “Hyper” Insulin levels rise, then
drop.(*A drug like effect similar to using “uppers” and
Our diet choices are often due to the fact that most of us
are in a HURRY!

Immediately STOP using toxic chemicals in your home!!
Of the – more than – 17,000 chemicals that appear in common
household products, only 30% of them have been adequately
tested for negative effects on our health.
The FDA cannot review or approve of personal care product
ingredients before they are sold to the public.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has linked over 150
Household chemicals to:

presently taking giving you the best value for the money
you are spending? Are you saving money on those products
because they’re concentrated so that you use less to do
more? Does the store where you purchase them give you a
discount or a bonus because you refer your friends to shop
