Affecting Your Health?
Everyday exposures can be harmful
We are inundated with products – at home, at school, at work, on our bodies – that can adversely affect
our health. Some symptoms appear on warning labels, but mounting evidence indicates that many ingredients need further scrutiny, particularly for effects on brain, respiratory, and reproductive function. The connection between chemical exposure and resulting symptoms can elude doctors because we are exposed to so many chemicals, and no two people react exactly alike.
Some People Are More Sensitive To Common Chemicals
Those at greater risk from low-level chemical exposures include: babies in utero; children; women; the elderly; the poor; workers in high-risk occupations; and people with chronic existing illnesses, such as asthma, allergies,
and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS).
