Is Your Health Being Destroyed by Toxic Fragrances?
Writer John P. Thomas states: "Secondhand fragrance contamination should be the number one health problem being addressed by the public health system in America, but it doesn’t even show up on the list of current priorities."
Could your health be suffering due to toxic fragrances hidden in perfumes, colognes, laundry products, air fresheners, and hundreds of other products?
In this four part expose, John P. Thomas looks at the growing epidemic of secondhand fragrance contamination.
In Part I, John looks at the problem of toxic fragrances contained in hundreds of products in the market today, and compares the problem of secondhand fragrance contamination to that of secondhand tobacco smoke 30 years ago.
In Part II, John exposes the fragrance industry, and discusses the difference between man-made synthetic fragrances, and natural essential oils.
In Part III, John exposes the addictive power of toxic perfumes and colognes, and explains that they contain narcotic-like substances.
In Part IV, John gives guidelines on how to shop for fragrance-free and non-toxic products.
In the appendix, we bring you the tragic story of Rosa Silk's son Brandon, who developed airborne anaphylaxis from toxic fragrances worn by other children at his school, and had his health completely ruined.
