Raising a child with special needs, it took me years to realize that she was highly sensitive to chemicals in the products I used daily in the home. She developed asthma, and I went crazy cleaning to remove dust and dander. But it never occurred to me that the cleaning supplies I used daily, and even personal care products, were now more than ever, were part of the problem! When I finally started researching the ingredients in these things, I was overwhelmed.
What I learned was that Children and young people are more sensitive to chemicals than are adults. This is partly because their bodies, including the brain, hormone system and immune system, are not fully developed. This may mean life-long consequences if damage occurs during childhood. A new study showed that the leading cause of lung cancer is not cigarettes but cleaning products used in the home. These chemicals are not only affecting the respiratory system, they are affecting overall health and brain health and development. Instead of doing critical developmental tasks, our kid’s bodies are working overtime to detox. Chemical sensitivities may be a contributing factor in some cases of behavior and attention problems, and with my own child, they were.
A study cited on CNN stated:
“It was long believed that you could acquire “better living through chemistry.” But that may really not be the case. In a landmark alliance, known as Project TENDR, leaders of various disciplines have come together in a consensus statement to say that many of the chemicals found in everyday products can result in neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism and attention-deficit disorders.”
“Ten years ago, this consensus wouldn’t have been possible, but the research is abundantly clear,” said Irva Hertz-Picciotto, an environmental epidemiologist at the University of California, Davis and co-chairwoman of Project TENDR.”
I have a passion to help other parents get the toxins out of their homes. Not only special needs kids, but ALL kids are susceptible. The effects are cumulative. A seperate, new, independent study showed that 1X week cleaning with the most common products is as damaging overtime as to the respiratory system as 20 years of smoking a pack a day! This study with 6,235 male and female subjects for 20 years, done by 28 to researchers from 9 countries, was published the American Thoracic Society’s’ American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. The study showed that:
- Damage is cumulative over time
- Cleaning at home is just as harmful as being an occupation cleaner
- Weekly use of home cleaning products is as damaging to lung health as smoking 20 cigarettes a day
- Liquid cleaners are just a dangerous as sprays
- Dangerous chemicals including ammonia, chlorine bleach and quaternary disinfecting compounds appear to be the primary culprits
- Women are affect far more than men
- Women who regularly use cleaning products have increased rates of asthma
But, How could I do all my daily tasks without these products? Ajax was cheap! I looked at more natural cleansers at Whole Foods and just about cried when I realized what a big chunk of my budget those products would eat up each month. We simply could not afford it.
