Most consumer products we use every day contain over sixty-three hazardous products which includes hundreds of different toxic chemicals. The products we clean our homes with are filled with toxic chemicals. We use these products with no protection at all and with no ventilation. Industry workers are required to wear special gloves and goggles when dealing with chemicals just like the ones we use every day.
We assume that just because the products are sold in the stores that they are safe to use. Toxic chemicals can enter our bodies by swallowing, absorbing through the skin, and breathing the air.
