Many everyday items such as household cleaners, mattresses, cooking pans, laundry detergents, perfumes, and lotions contain chemicals that are harmful to our nervous systems as well as the planet. The number of people suffering from environmental illness such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance) is growing everyday. In 2005, a Red Cross study found that, on average, infants were exposed to 200 chemicals passed through the umbilical cords from the mother. It is vital that we educate ourselves and make consumer choices that are healthier for our families as well as our environment.
The Green movement is no longer just about protecting the environment. It is about protecting our own health. Dr. Carson is an environmental educator who has faced the debilitating impacts of environmental illness in her own life. She knows first hand how to create a safe home environment with reduced chemical exposure. Beyond this, she can help you make better consumer choices to decrease your impact on the planet.
