Alright, parents. Let’s go ahead and kick the myth that it’s ANYONE else’s job to ensure our kiddos’ products are safe but us, ok?
The FDA doesn’t do it.
The companies profiting from the sale of the products in stores don’t do it.
There are products ALL throughout stores right now that are filled with proven cancer-causing chemicals. Products known to make our kiddos sick, infertile, and wreak havoc on their delicate body systems from the inside out. They know it, and they still sell them and come out with new product all the time. Their job is to make money. Their job is not to parent our children and keep them safe.
Check out THIS ARTICLE.
Nobody will protect our kids if we don’t. It is OUR job to read the labels. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming or hard.
Let’s empower ourselves!
I challenge you to read the labels of the products you used on your kids today. Look them up. It’s worth a few minutes. If it’s something known to cause harm - throw it out! Regardless of it costing you money. Regardless of how much is left in the bottle. Because listen to me.. we're betting if you have a truly sick kiddo down the road, you’d pay ANY amount to make them well again, right? The goal is to keep them well from the start. That starts by kicking out the toxins!
