Details

We diligently scrub, launder, deodorise and disinfect ourselves and our surroundings, in order to ensure our continued good health and well-being. But the shocking fact is that many of the products we use to ensure that we are clean and protected are made from highly toxic chemicals. We buy these products in good faith in supermarkets and shops and use them in our daily efforts towards good hygiene, unaware that they contain a range of ingredients known to cause, among other things, hormone disruption, mood swings, birth defects and even cancer. 'Cleaning Yourself to Death' takes a thorough look at the range of everyday cleaning products in our cupboards: what they contain, how they are sold and how we overuse them. Pat Thomas begins her campaigning book with comprehensive information about the skin and respiratory systems and how chemicals are absorbed through them. She then takes an in-depth look at the toiletries and household products we all use, and their adverse effects on our health. Full of practical, hard-hitting information, valuable tips on how to lessen our exposure to toxins and natural, effective alternatives, this book is a must for every home.

    enlightening book
    Review by wease on 11/07/2017
    This book was reccomended to me on a course i did recently- It was well worth reading- it is very enlightening. The amount of chemicals that we use without even knowing is scary- we all suffer from them eventually though, in one way or another- this is a must read!

    Review by Mr Squiffy on 11/07/2017
    Great service and product from seller.
    A must read to try to avoid contaminating our bodies with the huge amount of chemicals which are in most of the products we use in the home and on ourselves...
    Give this a read in the specific areas and make your own decisions on your own life and those of your dependents!

    Cleaning yourself to death
    Review by Sandraon 11/07/2017
    interestint, loads of information about harmful ingredients in our everyday products. Good reference guide to dip in to. The version is quite old (2001) - would be nice to have an updated book since the chemical industry is changing so quickly.

    invaluable information and practical advice
    Review by janice gibsonon 11/07/2017
    If you are interested in natural living,green issues, or alternative health this book is invaluable.As well as providing detailed information on chemicals and ingredients present in commercial cleaning products, it also includes tips and recipes for home-made cleaners and personal hygeine products.The structure and layout of the book is such that you do not have to read it cover to cover but can dip in and out of any section. Within a week or so I had banished my usual kitchen and bathroom cleaners with great ease and relief!
