After months of research and years of wishing there was a great, quick, convenient, yummy source for needed nutrition that did not require hours of shopping, washing, chopping…I’ve FINALLY found a food worth feasting on.
YEVO International is the largest little food company in the world, on a mission to feed humanity the 43 essential nutrients needed to sustain healthy living. The foods are quick to prepare, taste great and packed with nutrition. Our family and many clients have been enjoying them daily for a month now and people are calling daily to share how much more energy they have, how they are sleeping better, losing weight, no longer having cravings, some even feel that the essential nutrition in the food has helped them live headache free for the first time in over 3 years and several parents are reporting that their children’s behavior is noticeably better.
I have to say that I’m not in the least bit surprised. After all, these are ESSENTIAL nutrients needed to sustain healthy cellular function. Our bodies can not make these nutrients, thus they are ESSENTIAL. We must get them from the foods we eat or the supplements we take and according to research the WHO says that 90% of us are not getting the needed nutrition from our daily diets. If you look at the lack of human health, I think you would agree.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to be able to share this wonderful solution – YEVO International meals. Every meal includes 50% of the 43 essential nutrients, 26 grams of protein, Omegas, Fiber and these nutrient dense meals are low in calories. They take about 5-10 minutes to prepare and they taste great!
Since you all know how much research I do before making a decision to try a product then promote it…I want to share some of the science behind YEVO. It’s really such a simple concept – we used to get all needed nutrition from food and there was no need for supplementing. Now YEVO offers this ability again and as you know, our bodies are meant to get nutrition from food rather than pills.
Chip Marsland is the pioneer of anthropological biochemistry. Chip Marsland and Peter Castleman partnered over 4 1/2 years ago to bring YEVO International to fruition. His extensive background in food science and neurology along with the power of proteins has helped him create 100′s of food products which have been rated by Consumer reports as #4 in top functional foods for nutrition and diet. Listen as he explains how everything he was doing was wrong and why.

Ponder this question….Do these companies create good or bad foods? Kraft, Coca Cola, PepsiCo, Kellogg’s, ConAgra, Nestle, Tyson, etc.
- The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a daily intake of 43 essential nutrients for optimal health. These essential nutrients are nutrients that your body can not make. You must consume them every day in your diet to properly nourish your body. Many are overeating unhealthy foods, and starving inside because they are not getting these 43 Essential Nutrients which, when absorbed, cause satiety.
- These 43 Nutrients ensure that your cells are nourished, and they sustain health, and promote growth. The mass population is not even getting half of their daily nutritional requirements, and this foundational weakness is at the root of many of the diseases so common today.
- US Health Care + 3 Trillion attributed to bad food… World Health Care is $85 Trillion
YEVO IS ON A MISSION…
To Reverse 100 years of bad food practices.
Humans need 3 things: Oxygen, Water and Nutrients
Nutrients Help You Grow, Live, Heal.
Every YEVO Food provides 50% of 43 essentials in every serving…
- No MSG
- No Trans Fat
- No High Sodium
- No Preservatives
- No High Heat
- No Cooking
- No Artificial Dyes / Colors
For those who may be wondering what essential nutrients are and why they are important, this information may help.
- What are essential nutrients?
Essential nutrients are carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals that our bodies require daily but can’t make on their own. These nutrients must come from our diet.
- Why do we need essential nutrients?
Our bodies need essential nutrients every day to properly grow, heal, and live. If they are absent from our diet or we don’t get them in the right amounts, it can lead to poor growth and brain function in children and increased aging and chronic disease risk in adults.
- How do we provide you with nutrient rich foods?
Based on information provided by the Institute of Medicine and the World Health
Organization, there are 43 essential nutrients. To provide you with all the 43 essential nutrients you need daily, we use real foods from nature and then add any missing nutrients to our meals.
- What are some of the 43 essential nutrients in Yevo™ foods?
Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Tryptophan, Histidine, Lysine, Methionine, Threonine, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, Cysteine, Linoleic Acid, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Arginine, Alanine, Proline, Serine.
- What happens to me if I don’t get essential nutrients?
Without proper nutrition the body potentially does not have the full capacity to grow to its full potential. Vitamins and minerals are used by the body to maintain healthy cells. When cells are healthy, adverse effects stemming from natural aging process and potential chronic disease can be minimized.
As you can see, every serving of YEVO International foods provides 50% of these 43 essential nutrients including 26 grams of protein and these proteins are globular not fibrous. This simply means your mitochondria will love it!
It’s time to put our money where our mouth is and eat what will heal us. I look forward to getting you more information, a sample and what ever you need to make an informed decision about the foods you currently eat and how one simple change can positively impact your health.

What Are The Six Essential Nutrients?
The six essential nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water. An essential nutrient is a nutrient that the body cannot synthesize on its own — or not to an adequate amount — and must be provided by the diet. These nutrients are necessary for the body to function properly and keep us healthy.
The WHO (World Heallth Organization) has recognized 45 essential nutrients necessary to sustain health. In addition to water & protein they include…
- Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Tryptophan, Histidine, Lysine, Methionine, Threonine, Phenylalanine, Tyrosine, Cysteine, Linoleic Acid, Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Biotin, Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Arginine, Alanine, Proline, & Serine.
Studies have shown that poor nutrition and malnutrition are reflected by a decrease in blood levels of micronutrients and trace elements as well as many vitamins.
What Happens When We Lack These Six Essential Nutrients?
Fat accumulation is also generated by malnutrition (lack of nutrients in food) which also generates inflammation in the body. Inflammation seems to be at the base of many diseases. One of the consequences of malnutrition, inflammation and obesity is a disease called metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is the generic name of chronic conditions such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia. All of these conditions are the result of inactivity and poor nutrition.
Processed, fatty foods filled with empty calories are at our fingertips and we are paying a very high price because we eat it. Right now Diabetes, Heart Conditions, Obesity & Cancer are ALL on an epidemic rise in America alone.
Americans are the most overfed undernourished population on the planet. 70% of us suffer from at least 1 chronic disease and according to the CDC, chronic diseases are the more costly, the most prevalent and the most preventable! It is time to take back our life, stay healthy and empower others to do the same!
In addition to increased fat storage and inflammation, here are more consequences caused by the lack of these six essential nutrients…
Osteoporosis has a lot to do with high consumption of phosphorus rich soda drinks. Did you know that soda is 3,000 times more acidic than water, not to mention the massive amounts of sugar. High refined carbohydrates will increase your calcium loss through the urine. Lack of activity will speed it up.
Your pancreas, the organ responsible for the production of insulin, the hormone that helps to regulate blood sugar, will be overworked. Eventually, your pancreas won’t be able to provide based on the overhauling demand and will collapse which leads to Diabetes.
Studies are finding that as much as 70% of children 12 years old have the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries! As the process of poor nutrition continues and as your activity decreases, the arterial walls continue to be filled up and the plaque is formed. Plaque is the beginning of the end. This plaque will favor the formation of the clot that will trigger your heart attack or your stroke.High fat and high cholesterol levels will oxidize your L.D.L. (low density lipoproteins) what we call the bad cholesterol. Your liver which is also overworked won’t be able to clear up the excess fat. Oxidized L.D.L. will penetrate the walls of the arteries through the initial injury triggered by the free radicals. Rigidity or a loss of elasticity of the artery will follow and your hypertension will set in.
Keeping your intestines healthy is of the utt most importance because 70% of our immune system is in our intestinal tract referred to as “intestinal immunity”. Fibers bind toxins and nourish the growth of good bacteria in the intestines. A low fiber diet will decrease your colon acidity and deprive your healthy bacterial intestinal flora from the necessary nutrients. Celiac, IBS, Allergies & more are a result of this lack of essential nutrients.
First of all, processed foods are poor nutritional sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, protein, water and fibers. These types of foods are filled with “empty” calories which cause additional cravings, addictions & overeating.
Fortunately, our body has a very sophisticated antioxidant system to fight the negative effects of nature but it only works as long as we give it what it needs; the six essential nutrients. Trace elements play a major role as a co-factor with antioxidants in the metabolism and integrity of organ functionality.
I know, I know, pretty depressing right! But staying healthy is much more simple than you may think. It does take effort, commitment & some work but it really comes down to 2 very important things; diet and exercise.
This message is serious because it is so very real. If we don’t change our ways, no one else will. Join me in helping make a difference. In doing something that really matters. In changing 100 years of bad foods and getting these six essential nutrients back on your plate.
YEVO Is Changing 100 Years Of Bad Foods:
Do you suffer from “Food Dilemma” too? I do. Every day I’m worried about food…what my kids eat, what to cook for dinner, where to buy healthy foods, having enough time to cook, can we afford organic, can I trust labels (NO), is the food labeled organic still irradiated, what’s REALLY in packaged food and what’s been done to “fresh” food, are we getting the nutrients we need, do I even have the energy for preparing a complete meal today? Then I get into the the torture of knowing we should be eating better, wondering why I always have cravings, what is my body missing to make me want chocolate? Trying not to eat in the evening, taking time to have a good breakfast, making the kids eat before they run off to school, stressing about what my son in college is eating…and on and on…and on…and on…I think we all relate. On some level, we all suffer with FOOD Dilemma. Not to completely change the subject, but have you ever heard of The North Face company, Hawkeye, EON Labs, Herbalife, STR Holdings, Igloo, Caris Life Sciences, DermOne, AppStar….and the list goes on? I ask because I spent last Saturday (Nov 19) learning and gleaning as much as I could from the most prosperous man I’ve ever met; Peter Castleman. He’s taken 11 companies to muti-billion dollar status but prosperity is much more than monetary. Peter is the epitome of a leader; humble, generous, encouraging, brilliant, persistent, honest, loving and courageous enough to take on big food and big pharma. His mission to change 100 years of bad food is one that resonates with my soul. It parallels my message of education beats medication. His company, YEVO Internationaloffers such a simple way for us to get the nutrition our bodies are starving for and overcomes the food dilemma we all suffer with.
The Beginning Of The Bad Food Era:
Since 1911 when Crisco was created, big food has used the perfect formulation of salt, fat and sugar to imprint our brains and make us food addicts. The phrase “You can’t eat just one!” is sad but true. In the past 100 years we’ve been witness to major technological and scientific advancements yet our foods have remained exactly the same; dead, void of nutrients, foodstuffs that keep us coming back for more. What was once malnutrition has become “chronic disease” and we Americans are now the most overfed, malnourished and medicated society on the planet. Have you ever asked yourself why? Why all the disease? Why the need for multiple medications? “Chronic diseases—such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes—are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. Chronic diseases account for 70% of all deaths in the U.S., which is 1.7 million each year. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also the most preventable.” Centers For Disease Control We’ve all been witness to the decline of health due to lack of nutrient dense foods. We are paying a very high price at the gain of large corporations who could care less about your health or mine. Big food and big pharma have capitalized on our food addiction for years. But 100 years of bad foods has reached its apex…we are all fed up!
This mission is massive yet attainable and many will prosper in more ways than one because of it. Peter Castleman is at the helm. His vision is immense and we can’t do it alone.
If you find yourself thinking, “Dani, this all sounds fabulous but what the heck is YEVO?” Simply put YEVO International is the largest little food company in the world. YEVO foods provide 50% of 43 essential nutrients per serving, including protein, fiber, omegas and they are just as delicious as they are nutritious.
For Example: Todays’ Oatmeal is mostly carbohydrates. YEVO oatmeal has 26 grams of protein (equivalent to a 16 ounce Rib-eye), 1 ½ grams of Omega 3s (4 cod liver oil capsules), 11 grams of fiber (2 cups of Broccoli) and provides 50% of the 43 Essential Nutrients.
YEVO will launch with the most important meal of the day, breakfast and release additional meal options soon thereafter. Options like sauces, soups, mac-n-cheese, red beans & rice, and many more. These foods are simple to prepare, quick meals which simply require water but I love to cook so I will be using them to enhance the nutritional value of my most favorite (and not so healthy) recipes as well.
Enjoy this quick clip of my boys first taste
YEVO is currently in prelaunch so customers will be able to order as of Feb. 1 2015 when YEVO International officially launches. Right now we are looking for leaders to start taking this mission, message and solution to the masses. Remember changing 100 years of bad foods is a person to person mission and opportunity. Who is with me? Who hears this call? Who is in a FOOD dilemma every day? Who wants to be the change? Who has a desire to help others? Who?

Trusting The Network Marketing Industry Again
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…
Late night rant or rave…for the network marketing lovers and haters, who, like me, don’t trust easily.
Just had one of the most challenging yet liberating conversations. A man called me after researching SISEL International, which happens very often because my name still pops up on searches when people Google Sisel.
Anyway, he had read my blog posts, watched several videos, researched who I was, what I stand for and knew a lot about my life because I’ve made my life an open book online…certain aspects of it anyway.
After an hour of doing the best I could to help him comprehend why I or anyone in the Network Marketing industry would walk away from a passive residual income, team of amazing people and resign…then continue to refer people to certain products (this really got his goat)…I realized he was not questioning me or the company or my reasons…
He was questioning his. Under his need for a deeper understanding of what seemed to him to be ludicrous was a desperation that I could not comprehend. I found myself frustrated, offended, challenged, anxious, exhausted and finally compassionate, thank goodness. I had to restrain my desire to reach through the phone and shake him, many times. Self control is an amazing thing.
He needed to know if I could be trusted, if anyone in this industry could really be trusted. Trust was the desire he lacked. Most likely trust in people in general, regardless of the circumstances.
Yet I appreciated his willingness for a better understanding and ultimately this lead me to realize that I too lacked trust. This conversation became a mirror of what was on the inside.
I’ve not fully engaged in the industry for the past 18 months due to complete lack of trust and disappointment, yet I’ve not allowed myself to be out of the industry either. I’ve been on the outside, looking in, trying to figure out WHY.
Trust is something you can not see, with no measure, but is given out of faith. Not for the guarantee but for the possibility. Trust is the greatest gift we can offer another person. It opens us up to hurt, makes us vulnerable, somewhat scared, yet fully alive and vibrant. The unknown is a very exhilarating place.
Trust is a risk worth taking and life is a journey of learning that without trust…we will be alone, desperate for acceptance and yearning for relationship, asking ourselves “What if”…
It has taken me 18 months to trust the network marketing industry again. To know that just because I’ve chose bad people to partner with, does not mean all people are bad partners.
The wisdom that has come from 20 years of industry experience has been astonishing. I’ve grown up, met many marvelous people, become close friends and confidants. This is the ultimate honor.
I am humbled and grateful to be where I stand today. Thankful for my past and looking forward to my future. I am trusting my gut while allowing myself to have faith in founders of a new company. One I can not even tell you the name but I choose, with open eyes and no guarantees.
It’s time to revolutionize the industry. To marry online and offline marketing. To lead a new generation of marketers in making a living while making a difference. To say less and mean more. To extinguish any misconceptions because we WALK our talk and lead by example.
The world is filled with magnificent people and opportunity. More than ever before, we have the ability to positively impact people’s lives. There has never been a better time in which we (you & I) can have a strong influence on the improvement of an individuals’ well being & every day life.
Be empowered and know that the only way you will find out if you can trust somebody, is to trust them.
I thank this stranger for building my resolve. May he find every answer he is seeking and the ability to trust himself enough to trust others.
As I should be recording more online marketing “How to” videos, these are the thoughts I am compelled to share. Yet another page in a chapter of this life which is an open book…
What are your thoughts?
When Opportunity Knocks We Better Answer.
Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve written that I almost forgot my website login. Pretty sad, but life is crazy and when opportunity knocks I always answer. I may not accept the opportunity but I always answer the door. Don’t you? I really want to know. (Amy, if you are reading this, I’m downloading Roboform as soon as I publish this post!!!!)
Have you ever noticed that many times opportunity looks like a heap of stinky laundry? You don’t want to do it, but you want to wear it. We ALL want “it” (success, freedom, money, travel, marriage…) without having to achieve it, or at least we think we do.
Years ago something horrific happened to my family. Something I would never wish on anyone, yet most can relate because their own family has been hit by a stinky stack of it as well…dis-ease, rare and uncommon, incurable…DIS-EASE! YAY Opportunity!
I can look back on the past 10 years and say, “Under that stinky pile of opportunity lies a world of endless possibility.” Dani Walker
Once the stench of Jack’s diagnosis subsided, we thought it was best to let the Drs “deal” with the mess. 3 years passed and we decided that maybe WE should take charge. 18 months later, Jack was in remission and has remained so, since.
When Opportunity Knocks…We Learn
I had no idea that the opportunity to become an author, speaker and wellness coach was in my stars…I did not know that I would also become quite good at building websites and driving traffic to them to spread my message, help small businesses brand themselves, meet and establish amazing friendships and more opportunities.
Most of all, I had no idea Sarcoidosis was the beginning of making this opportunity a reality. If it weren’t for that wretched pile of pungent laundry…you would not be reading this silly message right now! Hmmm
We all have one of those, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” stories. What’s yours?
So here’s the message for today…
When opportunity knocks, you may not recognize it, like the way it looks, or want to put the effort out to achieve it…answer anyway. After all, you never know who will be next on the “100 most influential people in the world” list.Back in the day (1980′s) there was a door-t0-door fax machine saleswoman who created slimming hosiery in 1998 and by 2012 she was the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire! SPANX creator Sarah Blakely literally turned a pile of dirty laundry into a multi-billion dollar business.
What do you do when opportunity knocks? What dirty laundry is still shoved under the bed, being ignored? Which door do you wish you could go back and open?

How To Stay Healthy
Just what do we need to stay healthy?
We need four elements to stay healthy: 1) water, 2) sunlight, 3) nutrients and 4) oxygen. Unfortunately, the overuse or misuse of either one of the four elements will lead to disease formation. We could not live without oxygen, but this precious element could also be the source of our destruction.
The theory of free radicals or oxidation is the most accepted theory in the scientific world. This theory insinuates that we get “oxidized” in a simple word, we rust.
For example, observe an iron rod little by little, with the action of water, wind and sun exposure, this iron rod will rust.
This is what happens to us as our cells “oxidize”: Our arteries get plugged, our brain gets damaged, our bones become brittle and our lungs get darker due to cigarette smoking or pollution from air, water, food and toxic personal care products. Every cell and organ in our body is submitted to the damage of free radicals.
Nutrition: How To Stay Healthy
I am sure you have heard the saying “You are what you eat!” Well you are actually what you absorb.
Studies have shown that poor nutrition and malnourishment are reflected by a decrease in blood levels of micronutrients and trace elements as well as many vitamins. I have confirmed this with Sarcoidosis (My husband was dx in 2004 and has successfully used natural sarcoidosis treatment) and many other autoimmune diseases through much research at pubmed.gov. There are over 26 different studies that consider oxidative stress the underlying pathology of Sarcoidosis & other ILD’s and over 160 studies relating oxidative stress to diabetes.
Fat accumulation is also generated by malnutrition (mainly caused by lack of nutrition in foods we eat) which also generates inflammation in the body.
Inflammation seems to be at the base of many diseases. One of the consequences of malnutrition, inflammation and obesity is a disease called metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is the generic name of chronic conditions such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hyperlipidemia. All of these conditions are the result of inactivity and poor nutrition.

Another common saying is “Americans are the most overfed undernourished people in the world.” Processed, fatty foods filled with empty calories are at our fingertips and we are paying greatly. Right now Diabetes, Heart Conditions, Obesity & Cancer are ALL on an epidemic rise in America alone. It is time to take back our life, stay healthy and empower others to do the same!
Stay Healthy Or…
Here are just a few of the consequences to lack of nutrition:
Your pancreas, the organ responsible for the production of insulin, the hormone that helps to regulate blood sugar, will be overworked. Eventually, your pancreas won’t be able to provide based on the overhauling demand and will collapse. Eventually leading to Diabetes. Lower Your A1C Naturally
High fat and high cholesterol levels will oxidize your L.D.L. (low density lipoproteins) what we call the bad cholesterol. Your liver which is also overworked won’t be able to clear up the excess fat. Oxidized L.D.L. will penetrate the walls of the arteries through the initial injury triggered by the free radicals. Rigidity or a loss of elasticity of the artery will follow and here is your hypertension that your mom gave you after nine months of suffering and tender love.
Studies are finding that as much as 70% of children 12 years old have the beginning stages of hardening of the arteries! As the process of poor nutrition continues and as your activity decreases, the arterial walls continue to be filled up and the plaque is formed. The plaque is the beginning of the end. This plaque will favor the formation of the clot that will trigger your heart attack or your stroke.
A low fiber diet will decrease your colon acidity and deprive your healthy bacterial intestinal flora from the necessary nutrients. Celiac, IBS, Allergies & more are a result of this lack in health and nutrition.
Osteoporosis has a lot to do with high animal protein diets as well as your high consumption of phosphorus rich soda drinks. Did you know that soda is 3,000 times more acidic than water, not to mention the massive amounts of sugar. High refined carbohydrates will increase your calcium loss through the urine. Lack of activity will speed it up.
Stay Healthy, It’s Simple
Learning how to stay healthy is simple; doing it takes effort, commitment & some work.
First of all, food should be consumed in its most natural way. Processed foods end up being poor nutritional sources of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals and fibers.
These types of foods are filled with “empty” calories which cause additional cravings, addictions & overeating. Trace elements play a major role as a co-factor with antioxidants in the metabolism and integrity of organ functionality. Fibers bind toxins and nourish the growth of good bacteria in the intestines. Keeping your intestines healthy is of the utt mot importance because 80% of our immune system is in our intestinal tract referred to as “intestinal immunity”. Fortunately, our body has a very sophisticated antioxidant system to fight the negative effects of nature.
With the help of a healthy life-style as well as appropriate nutrition and excellent supplementation our body can minimize the effects of oxidation and reverse or prevent dis-ease.
Every single testimonial on this site is due to people’s bodies healing through super-saturated nutrition. From Sarcoidosis to Psoriasis our bodies get “out of whack” and then dis-ease is the result. I meet people everyday who are tired of suffering & want to be healthy again. I give them information and options and many of them choose to continue popping pills to “feel” better.
These supplements, referred to as the Triangle of Life are simply super-saturated extracts from naturally growing, powerful foods. They can complement almost every drug treatment for any disease and add health and nutrition back into your life.
Enjoy your life, save your time & money & Stay healthy!

Toxins Found In Personal Care Products
Before I share this list of dangerous and deadly toxins found in personal care products like shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, cosmetics, lotion, & more I want to make sure everyone reading realizes the words natural, pure, organic, botanical, herbal, etc. mean NOTHING in the personal care industry. I learned this after buying Tom’s of Maine toothpaste and deodorant without reading the ingredients. I just trusted the label and was willing to pay more for “natural” (& what I thought meant safe, toxin free) products.
As a concerned consumer I started researching companies that claimed to make safe personal care products. What they put in their products was no different than the toxic ones I was buying. The only thing that changed was the price! Why? The more I researched the more frustrated I became. We are smothering ourselves, our children & our environment with a chemical cocktail, scientifically proven to cause neurological & endocrine disruption, cancer, degenerative disease and more!
Avoid These Toxins In Personal Care Products
Please share this post with those you care about and let’s clean up our bathrooms and our environment at the same time!
THE TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN:
Women have four times the toxins as men because we have about 10% more body fat than men & store more fat-soluble toxic materials. These toxins in personal care products have been tentatively linked to breast cancer and hormone disruption. Women transfer toxins to children in utero and through breast milk, which some researchers suggest can affect fetal development and childhood growth. Ref: Women’s Foundation of California
Toxins In Personal Care Products:
1. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) & Laureth(SLES) –in shampoo, soap, toothpaste, facial cleansers, car washes, garage floor cleaners & engine degreasers and in 90% of products that foam.
2. PROPYLENE GLYCOL –used in cosmetics, hair care, food, deodorant
industrial and RV antifreeze, brake fluid, concrete additive, tobacco products.
Many deodorant formulations contain a higher amount of propylene glycol than industrial applications (Tom’s of Maine is one of them). Topical application to injured skin or intravenous administration has sometimes been associated with Lactic acidosis, Comas , Seizures & Renal Failure. Linked to: Central Nervous System Effects, Metabolic Effects & Poisoning
Ref: ATSDR Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry Ref: Reprotext2004
UK scientists have claimed: In their analysis of 20 breast tumors found high concentrations of para-hydroxybenzoicacids (parabens) in 18 samples.
3.PARABENS -(Mehtyl, Isobutyl, Ethyl-, Butyl-, Propyl-): used in hair care, lotions,creams, cosmetics, deodorants and soaps. Also used in pet care and food additives. Parabens can mimic the hormone estrogen, which is known to play a role in the development of breast cancers. The preservatives are used in many cosmetics and some foods to increase their shelf-life. These preservatives have been shown to cause skin rashes, eye irritation, respiratory irritation, are very harmful if swallowed. (Published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology 2004.)
4. Alph-hydroxyAcids: used in cosmetics, skin creams & facial peels -causes redness, peeling & irritation. Should ONLY be used under dermatologist supervision because of dangerous nature.
5. MEA: used in shampoos, body washed, skin creams & shaving gels as a solvent & wetting agent. Shows clear carcinogen activity.
6. DEA (Diethanolamine): used in shampoos, body wash, skin creams, shaving creams.Is a solvent, wetting agent or emulsifier. Is a carcinogen, U.S. Dept of Health’s National Toxicology Program suggests warning labels on all products containing DEA
7. Dioxin: a hidden unlabeled ingredient commonly found in plastic bottles, lotions & shampoos. Known carcinogen & endocrine disruptor.
8. Flouride: used in toothpaste to help prevent decay.
Studies suggest it contributes to bone disease, may be a carcinogen. In high doses flouridecan be fatally toxic. Children are known to swallow ½ of the toothpaste during brushing!
9. Benzophenones: used in personal care products & sunscreens to protect fragrances from UV light damage. Is a derivative of highly toxic Benzene & are known eye, skin & respiratory irritants.
10. Formalin or Formaldehyde: used in nail polish, antiperspirant, perfumes, dyes, shampoos & more.Is a carcinogen & neurotoxin that may be fatal if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin.
11. BiphenolA : used as coating or ingredient for bottles, canned food, plastic containers. Link between it & increased risk of diabetes & heart disease. Is an endocrine disruptor & has negative prenatal effects.
