Bringing Home Dangerous Chemicals

The chemical industry has been using a class of toxic plastic softeners, called phthalates (pronounced ‘THAL-lates’), in everything from cleaning products to children’s toys. Although not everyone knows about phthalates, scientists know they are linked to lowered IQs, reproductive harm, learning disabilities, and even asthma.


The most expensive ordeal one can easily get into is trouble. Trouble costs so much because there are so many hands that have to be paid that it will have the poor among us living from check to check broke for a long time! Too many hands are out when trouble arises!
