The Chemicals in Brand Name Clothing
Brand Name vs Organic Clothes
Hormone Altering chemicals are now showing up in most traditional brand name clothing. There are some new manufacturing techniques that are being used that you should be aware of. They include using harmful chemicals that get into our blood streams through our human network of thousands of pores and sweat glands and organs.
This is alarming because we pay a lot of money for clothing, and it should not be poisoning us. No wonder we are getting allergic reactions to almost everything, it may be in the very fabric of our clothing! Be careful of what you place on your skin because you can absorb more from your skin (your largest organ) than you can from drinking a whole glass of anything.
The harmful chemicals that you should not put on or near your skin (particularly your infant, children or seniors) are called nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), commonly used as detergents in industries including the production of natural and synthetic textiles. Another good reason to go natural if you can.
It is wise in today’s world to watch what you put into your body, whether food, water or clothing, make sure it will promote health instead of rob it. You can find more information here on: Organic Health Products, Toxin Removing Water Filters and Organic Sustainable Clothing.
There is a new free ebook out called “Dirty Laundry 2: Hung Out to Dry” that you may want to download for free and check out. Clothing from top brands including Adidas, Uniqlo, Calvin Klein, H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Lacoste, Converse and Ralph Lauren to name a few have tested high for these neurotoxins (brain and nervous system poisons).
Ever hear of ADD or ADHD, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s. Our brains are our most important organs to make sense of our world and also to communicate with others. We need to protect our brain and nervous systems at all costs. If you’ve used these types of clothing, you will want to consider getting organic cotton clothes or natural fibers that are not treated with cancer causing chemicals and you may even want to do a really good detox (Royal Detox, Pecta-Clear and Bentonite Clay).
There are natural green ethically and sustainably produced goods, products and organic clothing (some highly fashionable as well) that you might want to begin wearing. You not only protect your own (your families too that are around you) as well as our environment as a whole. When you buy organic clothing, you are getting high quality clothing without the harmful chemicals that can disrupt your hormones and be absorbed into your blood system.

This is especially important for infants, children and the elderly as it can affect their more fragile nervous systems and lead to hormone imbalance, ADD, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
