Avoiding Toxins – PVC

Avoiding Toxins – PVC

.Avoiding Toxins

We are so inundated with toxins in our environment that it’s almost impossible to avoid them.

Here is some advice on avoiding toxins.

Let’s focus on one particular type of toxin, PVC.
Most people, when they think of PVC, they think about water pipes, rain jackets or shower curtains. While those are certainly products made of PVC, there are thousands more products around us that contain PVC.

There are so many places it’s used that it may be impossible to completely avoid it. But you can lessen the contact by becoming aware.

I make a short video explaining the good and bad things about PVC. In this video I also give you a list of typical products containing PVC and what you can do to identify and to avoid it in your life.

Why should you avoid PVC? Some of you older folks may remember the hubbub made years ago about dioxins in the environment. Many dioxins were banned. But guess what contains dioxins….PVC.

Dioxins are a known carcinogen.

We’re not sure how PVC has not been banned as well. It might have something to do with political lobby. It is banned in about 14 worldwide countries.

Here’s the video. After you watch it, leave me a comment or suggestion and let’s keep the conversation going by sharing. The more people that become aware, the better off we’ll be.
