Happy New Year from all of us at the Non Toxic Revolution! We are ready to make 2015 the year without toxins. The beginning of the year is a great time to make goals for the upcoming months and commit to changing our routines for the better. Our resolution is to make it easy for you to go non-toxic for the new year.
Keeping your home and body free of poisonous chemicals is a health goal that many of us may not think of. It’s not as obvious as cutting out junk food or exercising daily, but it goes hand in hand with many health goals. For example, keeping your home free of toxic fumes boosts your lung function and helps you perform better for your fitness goals and eating cleaner food without processed chemicals and GMOs will help your body do it’s thing with less problems and maintain a healthy weight. Not to mention the illnesses and cancers that many chemicals and toxins are linked to like breast cancer, prostate cancer and thyroid cancer to name a few. You don’t need all that junk messing up your New Year flow and we can help you stress less about it!
With work or school about to start up again, we have brought some helpful resources all together in one place to cut down on your research time and get you going on your non-toxic way of life.
