As I write this I am high on some toxic, recently-applied-floor-wax fumes I’ve been inhaling at the gym over the last couple of days. Man, that shit takes a toll! I am dizzy and nauseous and tired beyond belief… This is definitely not a good high. I have lots on my mind besides this, but am feeling so utterly run down by toxic pollutants that I had to share some of my thoughts and a couple of links on the subject.
I personally became aware of the poisons that we are surrounded by and ingest on a day-to-day basis in the end of 2010.. Before then it had never even occurred to me that I should be suspicious of my shampoo, moisturizer or the cube of vegetable stock that I used regularly. The truth is that toxic chemicals are lurking in the majority of products that are being sold today. We artfully apply them into our hair, on our faces, on and into our bodies… Bottles and bottles filled with unpronounceable ingredients are lined up on the shelves of pharmacies and grocery stores…We’re all so used to it we don’t even question it.
It is horrible to realize that most people are as oblivious to the hazards of these products as I was so very recently. Once I became aware of these poisons, I actually went through the labels of all my household products and found that pretty much all of my cleaning stuff, cosmetics and even food was loaded with really nasty ingredients. I’ve been trying to steer clear of these chemicals ever since and buy things that are as non-toxic as possible.
But clearly, even with diligent research it’s impossible to avoid poisons all together as they are everywhere, my floor-wax stupor a case in point. Even so, below are a couple of links to check in case you are interested and haven’t seen or heard this information yet. Every little bit that we do helps the bigger picture, I’m sure.
Here’s to hoping that one day the norm will be to opt for non-toxic floor-wax instead of this brain-irritating bullshit.
