These chemicals are linked to all kinds of health issues like:

Fertility issues

Asthma

Allergies

Cancer and so much more


Out of some 62,000 chemicals approved for use in the US, only about 300 have been tested for safety


When out and about, the free version of Think Dirty app allowing you to scan barcodes is great.
