Did You Know....

... That it takes only a mere 26 SECONDS for anything that you are exposed to AND also what you apply on your skin to enter the bloodstream?

That also includes products which you use in your home and things that you come in contact with on a daily basis. You don't need to come in contact with Agent Orange to kill you. The plastic bottle which you use to drink your water from, the shower gel you use, the air freshener that is on auto-spray-every-30-seconds, the smog that you are exposed to every other day, the detergent you use to wash your clothes and many more are enough to sicken your body and bring about a host of health problems.

Imagine that an unborn baby will 'inherit' roughly about 200 chemicals from his/her mother. Those are passed through the placenta and umbilical cord. And even more will be passed to the baby when breastfed! (taken from HERE. Do read the WHOLE article.)

Click on LINK to read about the journey of one man who tested for chemicals which he has been exposed to, in his daily life since birth. Do read the whole article.


  1. I read something similar just recently...products you swallow (like pharmaceuticals) are less toxic because they are worked and changed through the liver, but skin treatments bypass the liver and go right into the blood for a direct effect. Scary.

    I read some comment on an article where a woman blasted another person because they were stupid enough to think the skin absorbs anything including chemicals. The article was about the toxicity of dying your hair. It amazes people are so stupid they have no clue how deadly anything you put on your skin can be.

    I love your "Did You Know..." series. Fun.

    1. It's a horrible world today...

      Thanks! Researching facts are really fun.
