Toxic Free Living

Toxins are poisonous substances harmful to the body

Home toxins can be divided into three categories:

  • Airborne
  • Biological
  • Chemical

Airborne – Consist of small air borne particles such as lint, dust mites, human skin, and pet dander.

These toxins are more dangerous than they sound because their small size enables them to travel deep into the lungs.

Biological – Such as bacteria and viruses, attach themselves to airborne particles, increasing the likelihood of lung infections. Mold is also part of this category.

Chemicals – Come into our home in the products that we buy to improve the look, smell, and cleanliness of both ourselves and our home.  There are over 80,000 Chemicals out there used to make cleaning and personal products.  Many have never been tested for toxicity by themselves let alone in combination.  Every year 1,800 are introduced in North America, with little to no toxicity test.
