I sure wish it were different, but so many so-called “safe” products are actually potent endocrine disruptors. What that means is that these products adversely effect our thyroid and sex hormones. They can cause such problems as hypothyroid symptoms, weight gain, and infertility, among many others. PLEASE read the attached article. EWG has a top 12 list of dangers as well. Bottom line, avoid artificial fragrances (perfumes, air fresheners, dryer sheets, hair care products, lotions, soaps, detergents, etc.). Check out EWG‘s site for safer alternatives.
