Government Admits Environmental Cancer Risk

The news is not that we are bombarded with cancer causing chemicals in our food, medicine, and our environment, but that the Government’s advisers are actually admitting this.

A recent report from the President's Cancer Panel, Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk, is a hard hitting report that calls on America to rethink the way we fight cancer, including, but not limited to, a much more serious regulation of cancer-causing chemicals.

   On page five of the report they say,
“With nearly 80,000 chemicals on the market in the United States, many of which are used by millions of Americans in their daily lives and are understudied and largely unregulated, exposure to potential environmental carcinogens is widespread.
One such ubiquitous chemical, bisphenol A (BPA), is still found in many consumer products and remains unregulated in the United States, despite the growing link between BPA and several diseases, including various cancers.”
   The report also states that only a few of the 80,000 chemicals we use in the U.S. have been tested for safety and “Many known or suspected carcinogens are completely unregulated.” 
It makes sense to me to shop with wellness as my first concern. I shop with a company that has an impeccable track record. Everything I purchase is better, safer and even more cost effective than the grocery store brands.
The simple choice of switching stores can make a huge difference.
