Cancer Causing Toxin Could be in Your Home

Mom w_ Kids Horizontal

by Rachel Lynch

Bringing eco-friendly, natural, and non-toxic products into your home is great and contributes to a long and healthy life but all the products in the world can’t make up for a toxic home. You may be thinking to yourself – my home isn’t toxic! Even if you have all the best products invisible  structural aspects of your house could be wreaking havoc on your body.

Danger Asbestos HazardAsbestos, a known carcinogen, is still legal in the United States and is present in countless homes and public spaces across the country. The toxin was used in building materials through the 1970s and can be found in wallpaper, insulation, piping, and radiators among many other products. Asbestos was used in such applications for its ability to resist heat, fire, and electricity. Unfortunately these seemingly advantageous abilities came with a very grave downfall. Asbestos particles are the only known cause of mesothelioma cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 2,400 to 2,800 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States every year.

There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos but the danger increases when the toxin is disturbed and particles are released into the air. When inhaled the asbestos particles embed in the lining of the organs where the cancer develops. There are four different types of mesothelioma – lung, heart, abdominal, and testicular. Each form of mesothelioma presents with different symptoms making the disease difficult to diagnose. There is currently no cure for mesothelioma so preventative measures are imperative – avoiding unnecessary exposure is critical.

Popcorn_ceiling_texture_close_upCurrently the greatest risk of exposure is during home renovation projects. Americans completing their own home repairs without the help of a professional run the risk of exposing themselves to the toxin, such exposure can be fatal. Major home improvement organizations – such as HGTV – are still touting the ease of home improvement projects that can cause the cancer. On December 19, HGTV posted a video to their facebook profile informing people how to remove the once common popcorn ceilings that have since gone out of fashion. In the video they demonstrate how to sand off the ceiling to reveal the popcorn free beauty underneath. Completing this project on a home constructed through the 1970s would result in inhalation of the toxic dust. Before undertaking this, or any home repairs, samples should be taken to ensure there is no asbestos present in your home.

Exposing yourself, or your loved ones, to asbestos begins a terribly long fight with mesothelioma cancer. The disease has a latency period of 20 to 40 years before the symptoms manifest making it difficult to diagnose. After that much time has passed many patients have simply forgotten, or did not realize, the exposure ever happened and don’t mention it to their physician after the onset of symptoms.

Recognizing the symptoms is yet another hurdle that stands between patients and an accurate diagnosis. The four different types of the disease present themselves differently. The symptoms of each are related to where the cancer forms. For instance – peritoneal mesothelioma, in the lining of the abdomen, includes symptoms of nausea, unexplained weight loss, blood clots, and low blood sugar. Peritoneal mesothelioma is the second most common form of the disease but has a slightly higher prognosis than the other types.

Most mesothelioma patients only have 12 to 21 months to live following their diagnosis. Often times the patient doesn’t receive the proper diagnosis until the cancer has spread from its original location to elsewhere within the body. At the later stages of the disease treatments are generally no longer a viable option and a patient only receives palliative care.

If your home was built from the 1930s to through the 1970s simply taking the time to have a specialist inspect for asbestos could ensure that your family won’t be added to the long list of those touched by mesothelioma cancer. Begin 2018 by taking control of your surroundings to ensure that you have a happy and healthy year!

Consumer Safety Guide Updates!

As all people do, when we purchase for the home (whether it is food, cleaning products, wellness items, etc.), we rely on the company and the government to bring to light any hazardous concerns we should be aware of. However, various findings and court proceedings show the opposite and that consumers themselves are the ones who are exposing the dangers of these products.

To help educate the public, Consumer Safety recently released an updated fact sheet of some commonly used products that are still on the market and not banned by the FDA or EDA.

Talc in Baby Powder
Dangers​: Talcum powder has been linked to a higher risk of ovarian cancer & lung disease. Additionally, it can contain asbestos fibers, which have been linked with mesothelioma lung cancer.
Findings: ​Industry leader Johnson & Johnson has been at the center of the talc issue. Already, four juries have found in favor of plaintiffs who claimed their ovarian cancer was caused by prolonged use of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder or Shower-to-Shower Powder. Reparations of up to $110 million have been ordered on behalf of the victims. Johnson & Johnson continues to deny any danger, and their talc-containing products are still available across the nation.
Regulatory Status:​ While the FDA does regulate talc in food products, cosmetic products are not currently required to be reviewed by the FDA. There is no federal ban on the use of talcum powder in cosmetic products, despite bans on the use of the ingredient by the European Union.

Teflon on Nonstick Pans
Dangers​:
Increased risk of kidney and testicular cancers, as well as thyroid disease. Higher levels of exposure have been linked with miscarriage and fertility issues or birth defects.
Findings: ​Teflon (brand name) maker DuPont has been found guilty in several personal injury and wrongful death suits after the chemical was found to have tainted water surrounding the plants where they made their nonstick coating for cookware. A paper released in 2015 called the Madrid Statement was signed by over 200 scientists from 40 countries and presented evidence that Teflon, created in part by chemicals called poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), is carcinogenic. Additionally, these toxins were confirmed both by independent scientists and DuPont’s in-house team to be released by the nonstick pans after just 2-5 minutes of heat on the stove.
Regulatory Status:​ The EPA has ruled that a substance closely lined to PFAS, perfluorinated compounds, is a likely carcinogen. In 2005, the EPA fined DuPont for hiding information on the health hazards associated with PFAS. In 2010, the EPA launched a voluntary program to encourage manufacturers to reduce, and by 2015, eliminate these chemicals in their products. Though the Teflon brand name is no longer used, non-stick coated pans containing PFAS are still widely available in the cookware aisle.

Glyphosate in Weed Killer
Dangers​:
Both the WHO and, more recently, the State of California, have listed glyphosate as a probable carcinogen. Glyphosate exposure has also been linked with kidney and liver issues. While more pressing danger has been associated with RoundUp Weed Killer, the use of the pesticide in farming has resulted in finds of trace amounts on popular foods, like Quaker Oats and Cheerios.
Findings:​ Current litigation against Monsanto’s RoundUp product is ongoing, with dozens of plaintiffs claiming their cancer was caused by RoundUp usage. However, Monsanto recently lost a battle with the State of California to keep the ingredient off a list of known carcinogens. Monsanto is now required to label their product with warnings accordingly.
Regulatory Status:​ After being called out last year for not including glyphosate in annual testing practices, the FDA began testing the herbicide; however, the testing was shut down soon after. A new testing period has begun recently, likely as a result of increased pressure stemming from these lawsuits. The EPA previously published reports saying that glyphosate was not a likely carcinogen, but with new studies to the contrary, and with California’s recent decision to list glyphosate as a carcinogen, perhaps it is time to take a deeper look into the issue. The EPA sets “tolerances” for residue from pesticides like glyphosate that remain on food products; American standards allow in some cases double the amount of residue than what the European Union considers safe. 

You can also view all of the safety guides here.

We, at LOVE GOODLY, do our part by being transparent when it comes to sharing what is in each product! Using resources and databases such as the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics database and our list of banned ingredients, we thoroughly research each item before we include it inside our bi-monthly boxes or in our online shop.

Juicing For Your Health

LOVE GOODLY_ Juicing for Health_July 2017_image 1_Juicegeneration.com

We know sometimes it’s hard to eat our fruits and vegetables. Juicing is a delicious way to get them in! Juicing also gives your stomach a break from digesting solid foods while still in taking more essential vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients.

Not all juices are created equal. The best and most nutritious kinds of juices to buy are those that are organic, cold pressed, and contains no added sugars or other ingredients. Cold pressed juices taste better and are more nutritious than regular juices because during the juicing process, enzymes in the fruits and vegetables are not destroyed. When we are out and about, we like to grab Suja’s organic, cold-pressed juices.

If juice is something you would like to incorporate into your diet more regularly, it would be beneficial and financially more sound to invest in a juicing machine. There are three types of common juicers:

  • Centrifugal juicers: These machines are the least expensive option. Centrifugal extractors chop and crush the input with a high spinning blade, extracting juices from the pulp using centrifugal force. However, the blades generate a lot of heat, which destroys the enzymes in the input, rendering the juice less nutritious. This is a great blender if you’re looking for something that does the job and not picky about lost nutrients.
  • Masticating juicers: These juicers crush your input and squeezes out as much juice as possible. That being said they extract juice at a much slower rate. Masticating juicers also process nuts so you can make your favorite plant-based milks. They are quitter than centrifugal juicers and more efficient.
  • Triturating juicers: The best of the best, but also the priciest! Triturating juicers have twin gears that crush the input in between, producing the maximum amount of juice and a very dry pulp. There is little to no foam in the juice and it preserves almost all nutrients.

Many juice bars sell one, three, or five day juice cleanses. Juice cleanses don’t necessarily “detox” or “clean” our bodies nor will they help us lose sustainable weight. In essence, you are simply consuming fruits and vegetables without their fiber for however many days. But done with the right intentions, juice cleanses can be a great tool to resetting your body from previous eating habits. They also give your stomach a break while still being sustained by the nutrients and vitamins of the juice.

Happy Juicing!
