Our modern world exposes us to too many toxic substances

Theatrical Smoke

Theatrical smoke or haze is used to enhance lighting effects in concert halls, theatres, and television and film production.
The most common form of theatrical smoke is made by using a fog machine to heat a liquid (commonly known as fog juice). The liquid contains an oil that when heated to a sufficient point produces smoke. The fluid is pumped by the machine into a temperature controlled heat exchanger that vaporizes the fluid into thick clouds of fog, projecting it out through a nozzle located at the front of the machine.

Cosmetics in the News

Over the last few years, there have been a number of reports alerting women to the toxic ingredients in many cosmetics.

The cosmetics industry has not told people of the harm that some ingredients can cause with repeated use.
You do have a choice. Now is the time to change to a brand that does not use harmful ingredients.
We can refer you to a brand that is a quality cosmetic and that does not contain toxins. You can ask here.

Toothpaste - Spit It Out

There is a reason why you should spit out toothpaste rather than swallow it - most toothpaste is bad for you.

Look at the ingredients in your toothpaste. Many brands sold on supermarket shelves contain a host of unfriendly substances - flourides, detergent, fragrances, colours, and preservatives.

Yes, I listed flouride in the bad substances. Flouride is actually quite dangerous. It is absorbed and retained within the body, and can cause many problems. Our exposure to flouride needs to be minimal and controlled.

Check Your Mouthwash

Dental experts are warning that many brands of mouthwash available in supermarkets could contribute to oral cancer.

A review published in the Australian Dental Journal has linked mouthwash brands containing alcohol to an increased risk of developing the deadly disease.

The ethanol in mouthwash is thought to allow cancer-causing substances to permeate the lining of the mouth more easily and cause harm. Acetaldehyde, a toxic by-product of alcohol may also accumulate in the oral cavity when swished around the mouth.
