For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death.”   Rachel Carson (1962, Silent Spring)

Sources of toxic chemicals

Studies on toxic chemicals have detected hundreds of these substances in our homes, food, and our bodies at all stages of life. These chemicals have been linked to health issues such as cancer, asthma, heart and lung disease, infertility, and neurological impairment.

Learn about environmental toxins that you and your family are exposed to on a daily basis. More importantly, learn what you can do to reduce these exposures in your diet, at home, and at work! Join me on Facebook and follow my blog to learn more. I'm currently posting on how toxic chemicals get into your diet and would love your questions and feedback!


“I have always been sensitive to strong chemical smells and being around them gave me really bad headaches… I have continued to follow many of Laurel's suggestions for reducing the chemical toxins in my home and notice the change in the number of headaches I get now, almost none! I am so glad I met Laurel and learned what I could do to reduce my exposure to toxin substances that I didn't even realize were in my home.”

-       Linda J Brown, Coach/Consultant

"I really benefited from Laurel's clear presentation of information that is often only known to scientists. It has made searching for safer products much easier for me and I've shared this info with many interested friends."

Lynn Taylor, Landscape Designer

"I particularly appreciated how Laurel framed the problem, described how to sort the available information and focused on practical actions we can take to reduce our exposure."
