Everything we do and surround ourselves has an effect on us. Whether it is people, or substances, sometimes it is good to rethink our habits and replace them with healthier habits. I too have to take this advice. Today there is more and more talk about toxicity in the items we use. Many resources today such as TV, magazines, and blogs, speak to this. What we clean with can have lasting consequences on our health. The reason I am waking up to this knowledge is I wondered if somehow I contributed to my cat’s cancer. I recalled using Lysol and beach a lot to clean up after her. She stayed primarily in my room the last year of her life. I looked online to find that Lysol was very toxic to animals. Well yea, they are closest to the ground and their paws directly touch the surfaces we clean with these cleaners.
