What a chore! But I really am careful about what we eat, put on our bodies, and clean with.
MSG causes huge problems - like hands swelling especially and headaches.
A little sugar is ok, but more than a tiny bit and I get headaches and feel ick.
Artificial colors - not good, especially for my 6 year old, I have to really be aware. Makes him bounce off walls.
Propylene Glycol - they use this in stuff like hair products, skin products, supplements, why??? It is anti-freeze!
I do as much as I can from scratch. I haven't reached the point of making my own yogurt, but I may. Stoneyfield is good though.
I am using Burt's Bees cosmetics and I only buy body/skin/hair products that aren't full of chemicals. (I had reqched the point where all the makeup I would put on was causing swelling, redness, itching, sinus problems, etc and I was using Aveda, which is actually full of chemicals, ugh~)
I could go on and on about this subject, but I will spare you...
And people wonder why we have so much cancer and other diseases nowadays.
