Back in the day, Rachel Carson wrote her book Silent Spring, and I think that was like, the first one that really just shocked everybody in terms of the number of legal chemicals that are very carcinogenic in our society we’re all exposed to. And it’s a little bit harder sometimes to have control of things like that that are agricultural or societal, but just to kind of be mindful that everything that goes into our body, whether it’s topically, internally, we breathe it in, it’s all cumulative. And so the things we do have control over, whether this is cosmetics, body care products, our household cleaning products, I mean, these are the things that we do have control over, and it can really help keep cancer risks down to be mindful of the types of chemicals we’re putting into our body.
Use resources like Pharmaca. There are a lot of other great eco-minded stores in the community in Santa Monica as well. But like, for example, the aestheticians that are on staff here are very knowledgeable in terms of what the bad list of chemicals are for your skin in terms of body products. And you can come talk to them and they can counsel you on which of the things, like is it parabens. Which are the things that we should really be avoiding in our day to day regime?
There are plenty of new companies; the green movement’s really big now. It’s actually become quite trendy, which is nice, so it’s actually really easy to start to get more affordable green, so to speak, types of products that are not going to cause us health problems.
