HOME – The one word that translates in every language, culture, and faith to Personal, Secure, and Safe.
But in all the fantastic advancements of homebuilding technology and techniques, the meaning has changed. Home has become a place of danger. The danger is in the chemicals we use for everything from hand lotion to lawn fertilizer, from instant snacks to insulation, from food preservatives to lumber preservatives. A tipping point is about to be (may already have been) reached, when we will no longer be able to tolerate the environment we’ve created.
The evidence is in our babies. Coursing through the veins of newborn infants are over two hundred chemicals, which didn’t even exist fifty years ago. The chemicals are so new the effects they might have on human physiology, mentality, and longevity are unknown. The Earth is so saturated, because of environmental disbursement, there’s no place left to live an uncontaminated life.
The answer is beyond the reach of mass populations, entire countries, civilization. But the solution is firmly in the hands of every individual….YOU. You can learn to choose safe alternatives to chemically infused food and fabric, tape decks and sun decks, sweeteners and shingles, and cradles and carpets. You can stand between your home & family, and the rest of the world.
With a little knowledge all the dangers of the modern world can be revealed. With a tiny effort many of those dangers can be avoided.
Take advantage of this learning moment. With knowledge you can become the guardian of health and happiness for the one place that means the most to those in your care and yourself – HOME.
