Did You Know?
It is NOW known these ingredients do get into our bodies through their intended use 20 years from now, what will we have proven about these ingredients, their use and their effect on our health? Or will we still be asking the wrong questions?
Are there any clues today that
We think so!
What you are about to read is shocking...Incredible, but true!
Before you dismiss this, go to your bathroom and check some labels. You'll find Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Propylene Glycol (not to mention hundreds of other chemicals) in toothpaste, conditioners, cosmetics, shampoos, lotions and many other common products...you and your loved ones use several times, every day.
Could these ingredients possibly have any long term side effects?
Why is the rate of cancer soaring?
Why is the rate of heart disease soaring?
Where did Alzheimer's come from?
Why do so many people need glasses or contacts?
Why are we the country leading the world in the proliferation of degenerative disease?
Why are we spending a trillion dollars annually on Health Care for?
Why are we not getting better?
There is something going on...and it's not pretty. When you know the facts about what these chemicals found in our everyday products are and where they come from and what they cause...you'll be shocked...and then you should get angry
(SLS and SLES) - Harsh detergent implicated in contact dermatitis, hair loss, systemic retention, and possible damage to eye formation in young children. Avoid these ingredients.
A very common carrier in cosmetic products and baby products. Serious health concerns are being raised over the use of this chemical (Material Safety Data Sheet for Propylene Glycol clearly states to "Avoid skin contact".)
The term "natural" means virtually anything the manufacturer wishes it to mean. As whole, natural cosmetics are purely an advertising gimmick. (Beware of these terms).
This common ingredient is found in many beauty creams, cleansers and makeup. It is also found in children's personal care products. The American Academy of Dermatologists Inc. published a clinical review in January 1991, which showed propylene glycol to cause a significant number of reactions and was a primary irritant to the skin even in low levels of concentrations.
It has been shown that Propylene Glycol:

The greatest concern of many scientists is centered around SLS, a detergent found in approximately 90% of commercial shampoos, including "no more tears" baby shampoos
A study done at the Medical
College of Georgia has shown that:
shampoos (with SLS) could retard healing and keeps children's eyes from developing properly, children under six are especially vulnerable to improper eye development (summary of Report of Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc. conference)
SLS can cause cataracts in adults and delays the healing of wounds in the surface of the cornea
SLS build up in the heart, liver, lungs and brain and can cause major problems in these areas
SLS causes skin to flake and to separate and causes substantial roughness on the skin
SLS is such a caustic cleanser that it actually corrodes the hair follicle and impairs its ability to grow hair
SLS is routinely used in clinical studies to deliberately irritate the skin so that the effects of other substances can be tested.
"Modern testing is proving time and time again that many ingredients used in personal care products are not good for the body, skin, or hair" .
Chemical Sensitivity and
Today is commonly accepted that even low-level exposure to a number of different chemicals can cause a wide variety of chronic diseases, according to Nicholas Ashford, Ph.D., J.D., of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Claudia Miller, M.D., M.S.,M.A., of the University of Texas.
In addition, Michael A. Evans, Ph.D. Associate Professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, believes 70 to 80% of human cancer is due to synthetic chemicals that are not themselves completely carcinogenic, but become carcinogenic when they interact with other environmental or genetic factors.
Today, people are exposed to chemical concentrations far greater than were previous generations. Also, ecological changes in the environment are occurring grater than the human body's capacity to adapt to them. "It is interesting to observe how conventional medicine is beginning to acknowledge that food and chemicals in the environment can cause a broad spectrum of physical ailments". "Physicians who will continue to lead the way toward effective, physiologic therapy will be those who have spent years listening to their patients and exploring alternatives that offer the hope of helping them." It wont hurt to start looking into alternatives, your health is important to you. Here is your opportunity to try these products that are safe for all ages. "YES, these are the safest products, for you and your children.

NEW YORK CHILD
POISONED TO DEATH IN DENTAL CHAIR
June 28, 1974: Little William Kennerly, age 3, of New York died just four hours after receiving a brush-on stannous fluoride treatment during his first and only trip to the dentist. William didn't know that he wasn't supposed to swallow the fluoride, and he paid with his life.
Extracts from the autopsy report, performed by a Dr. Tomo on May 25, 1974 at Kings County Mortuary:
Case #K74-3511 AUTOPSY REPORT
Age: 3 years
Weight: 32 lb
Clinical history - the child swallowed about 45cc of 2% stannous fluoride solution in the pediatric dental clinic, Bristol Street Clinic, at 9:30 a.m. He was given Epinephrine I.M. in dental clinic and sent to Brookdale Medical Center for close observation. The child came to Brookdale Medical Center at 12:30 noon, was well until 1:00 when suddenly went into cardiac respiratory arrest and was in shock. The child vomited out and had an unrecordable blood pressure. He finally expired on May 24, 1974, at 2:00 p.m.
A toxicologist's report stated that little William had swallowed the equivalent of three lethal doses. His parents later collected several hundred thousand dollars in a wrongful-death lawsuit, but that was small consolation for the senseless loss of their son.
Toothpaste is similar in this regard, because a typical family size 7 ounce tube of toothpaste contains enough stannous fluoride or sodium fluoride to kill a 20-pound child. To test this, just call the 800 number listed on your toothpaste box, tell them that your 2-year-old child has just eaten half a tube of toothpaste and that he's now vomiting. Act frantic, and watch how quickly your call gets patched directly to a Poison Control Center. (It's common for a child to vomit for 12 hours, after eating a large quantity of toothpaste.)
SOLUTION? Neways products do not contain any fluoride or any other harmful ingredients that would affect your health in any way. INVEST IN YOUR HEALTH using "state of the art products."

In 1938, the FDA grand fathered the use of several ingredients as safe for personal care items, with restrictions of course. Based on what? Like DEA, PROPYLENE GLYCOL may be absorbed through the skin.
……..20 Years after the first Surgeon General’s report. In fairness, the producers of these products are just doing business as usual. They use Propylene Glycol and other questionable substances because it’s the way things have been done for decades and the FDA isn’t stopping them. These common, plentiful ingredients are inexpensive and consumers generally shop price. Changing to safer ingredients would mean slightly higher costs in a very competitive market. Now that DEA has been linked to cancer, the FDA has something new to valuate, while the producers have a new issue to defend. If DEA is banned or restricted, how long will it take? At this time it’s known if Propylene Glycol is the target of many studies. The folks formulating products with propylene glycol probably won’t be changing anything soon. So, if you think Anti-Freeze ingredients in your expensive cosmetics and personal care items is disgusting...and this is just the tip of the iceburg!

COMPARISON OF ETOMIDATE IN PROPYLENE GLYCOL AND A LIPID EMULSION FORM IN HEALTHY CANINE PATIENTS.
M Mosing, U Auer, M Teinfalt. Anesthesia Team, Central Laboratory, Veterinary University of Vienna, Veterinärplatz 1, A-1210
Etomidate has been
shown to be an anesthetic agent with little effect on vital parameters during
and after induction. The major side effects are excitement, myoclonus, vomiting,
salivation, defecation and apnea. Etomidate is known to suppress adrenocortical
function and cause hemolysis due to the propylene glycol form. The aim of this
study was to determine the anesthetic and hemodynamic effects and the prevalent
side effects, the duration of cortisol suppression and the hemolytic effect of
the two different forms in healthy dogs.
The dogs were
sedated with 10 mg/kg
of medetomidine and 0,02 mg/kg atropin intramuscularly. Fifteen minutes later
all of them received 0,5 mg/kg of etomidat, half of them with the propylene
glycol form, and the other half with the lipid emulsion form. Measurement of
vital parameter begun 3 minutes before and stopped 10 minutes after the
application of etomidate. Blood samples were taken before and, 1, 2, 3, 6, and
24 hours after the etomidate application.
The only major side
effects observed was an apneic phase in 50 % of all dogs in both groups. All of
them were intubated one minute after application was completed. The hemodynamic
changes were not significant. The plasmacortisol levels were significantly
reduced in both groups. The only difference between the groups was significant
hemolysis in the propylene glycol group, without any sign of hemolysis in the
lipid emulsion group.
We conclude, that
the new form has the same pharmacodynamic effects as the propylene glycol form.
The advantage is, that the lipid emulsion doesn´t cause hemolysis, so this form
of etomidate can also be used as an infusion for maintainace.
