Cancer Causing Agents All Around Us

There is a great article I found online that should have been front page news...

"How to avoid common cancer causing agents", which touches on a subject that I've come across many times before in most all of the books I've read. Many of the common household chemicals we use, foods we eat, and technologies we use (cell phones) do indeed cause cancer. I wish the article went a step further and mentioned the dangers of using most non-organic cosmetic products (soaps, moisturizers, perfumes, shaving creams, woman's cosmetics...), office equipment like laser printers, prescription and over-the-counter drugs as well.

I think it is very important for people to understand this, because most people feel that because they don't smoke or don't work under hazardous conditions or eat lots of fruits and vegetables (non-organic) or "supposedly healthy" non-organic processed foods (snack bars, energy bars/shakes, cereals..) that they are doing all they can to protect themselves from the many faces of cancer.

The fact is though this is far from the truth.

In fact if you eat non-organic foods, use non-organic cosmetics, use non-organic or non-biodegradable "green" household chemicals, regularly take prescription and/or over the counter drugs, and have your cell phone permanently attached to your ear then you are most definitely putting yourself at risk every day.
