ZaKaiRan’s Health Tips
Toxic Ingredient of the Month
I offer you the “Toxin of the Month”, as a divine service, to educate yourself about the toxic ingredients that are routinely used in body, skin, oral & hair care products, cosmetics & food products. Profit driven companies who produce most of the products that people routinely purchase and use daily across the world, are not particularly interested in creating products that are actually good for you, because to make good quality, healthy, beneficial products, costs too much money. So, typically, body care products are made from synthesized chemicals, often made from petroleum, that give the appearance of helping, when in fact, many or most of these chemicals are low or high level toxins. These chemicals might be carcinogenic (cancer causing), mutagenic (damaging DNA), teratagenic (causing birth defects), toxic (poisonous), or at the very least irritant, are not regulated by the health “authorities”. And due to “greenwashing”, many consumers think they are buying a quality “organic” product, when in fact it is not.
Profit driven industries rely upon people’s ignorance, gullibility, complacency and lack consciousness orientation to sell their cheap products. Your personal empowerment and ability to affect planetary change, is in your hands, based upon your desire to educate yourself about what you purchase, what you put in and on your body, and what you take from and put on the earth.
of divine health, prosperity and empowerment!
- Deliberately misleading consumers through false advertising using health
oriented catch phrases, such as “natural” and “organic”,
or including a microscopic amount of natural or organic ingredients, so that
health oriented people will purchase the product, even though the product
may not be healthy or organic at all).
Toxic Ingredient of the Month
Propylene Glycol / Butylene Glycol
Glycol is routinely used in many body care products. It is a highly toxic
synthesized petroleum derivative that is the primary constituent in radiator
fluid/anti-freeze in your car! It is technically classified as a carcinogen.
It is a completely unnatural product that has no business being in any thing
we put in or on our bodies, yet is allowed to be put in body care products
because it is not “eaten”, but when you put things on your skin,
they go immediately into the blood stream without being filtered by your normal
detoxification systems, such as you liver.
Propylene glycol is found in tooth pastes, skin creams, soaps, moisturizers, conditioners, baby wipes, cigarettes, pet foods, etc.
glycol is classified as a humectant by the body care products industry, but
its technical classification is as a Coolant and de-icer, it is an "industrial
antifreeze" and the major ingredient in radiator fluid, brake and hydraulic
fluid. Tests show it can be a strong skin irritant. Propylene glycol accumulates
in the heart, liver and kidneys, (causing abnormalities and damage) and weakens
the immune system.
Propylene glycol can provoke acne eruptions and can cause contact dermatitis. It penetrates the skin and can weaken protein and cellular structure.
Propylene glycol is also commonly used to make extracts from herbs, and is strong enough to remove barnacles from boats!
The EPA considers Propylene glycol so toxic that it requires workers to wear protective gloves, clothing and goggles and to dispose of any PG solutions by burying them in the ground. Because Propylene glycol penetrates the skin so quickly, the EPA warns against skin contact to prevent consequences such as brain, liver, and kidney abnormalities. But there isn't even a warning label on products such as stick deodorants, where the concentration is greater than in most industrial applications.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on Propylene Glycol warn users to avoid skin contact as it is systemic and can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage.
