87 Chemicals Found in Febreze

The first thing that is really important to understand: the product does not remove odor molecules and it doesn't clean the item it comes into contact with.

The odor molecules are still there. Your nose just can't perceive them because you smell the chemical product instead.

That alone should be your first warning. We know inhalation of any chemicals is dangerous, and several of its ingredients listed below are known to irritate the lungs...but this is a chemical whose entire purpose is to be inhaled!

Unfortunately there is not much data being shared on Febreze and their many products, but the Environmental Working Group (EWG) did conduct a test for the ingredients of one of their products, Febreze Air Effects.

Shockingly, P&G only disclosed THREE ingredients in this product, but the EWG...they found 87 chemicals in total!

Now this is just one Febreze product, but the fact that only 3 ingredients were disclosed and that so many undisclosed ingredients are dangerous, it's safe to assume that their other air freshners are just as dangerous.

Febreze Ingredients

Below you'll find a list of just some of the 87 chemicals found by the EWG in Febreze Air Effects, listed in order of their toxicity to humans:

BHT - Known as a neurotoxin, endocrine disruptor, immunotoxicity, non-reproductive organ system toxicity, skin eye and lung irritator

Acetaldehyde - Known to cause cancer, toxic to reproduction and development, immunotoxin, non-reproductive organ system toxin, skin, eye and lung irritator

"Fragrance" - One of the three ingredients actually disclosed, it's a neurotoxin, immunotoxin and allergen

Propylene Glycol - Causes cancer, allergies, toxic to immune system, accumulates in the system, non-reproductive organ system toxin, is classified with "enhanced skin absorption" and irritates the skin, eye and lung

1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol - Carcinogenic (causes cancer)

Limonene - Allergen, immunotoxin and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Methyl pyrrolidone - Toxin to reproduction and development, allergen and immunotoxin, non-reproductive organ system toxin and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Alcohol denatured - Also disclosed in the ingredients of Febreze, it's linked to cancer, developmental/reproductive toxicity, organ system toxicity and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Butylphenyl methylpropion al - allergen, immunotoxin and and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Ethyl acetate - linked to developmental/reproductive toxicity, neurotoxicity, organic system toxicity and and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Geraniol - Linked to allergies, immunotoxicity, organi system toxicity and and skin, eyes and lung irritation

Linalool - allergen, immunotoxin, and and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Benzaldehyde - neurotoxin, and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether - non-reproductive organ system toxicity

Ethylhezanol - developmental and reproductive toxin and skin, eyes and lung irritator

Hexyl cinnamal - allergen, immunotoxin and skin, eyes and lung irritator
And way too many more..

As I continue to do this work I find that so many of my clients are confused as to what is healthy and what is not. Many of us have fallen prey to the often false and misleading marketing "tricks" that are routinely used by food manufacturers.

So how do we decipher between fact and fiction?

First and foremost, read the ingredient list!!

Do not rely on clever (aka deceptive) labels such as "All Natural", "No Artificial Colours or Flavours", "0 Trans Fats", "Heart Healthy", "Fat Free" or "Made with Real Fruit" just to name a few.

These labels mean very little, most have no regulatory definition and they are often misleading. For instance, there are no standards for the use of "All Natural" and "Heart Healthy", therefore food manufacturers can use them on virtually any product they wish.

Using the "Zero Trans Fats" claim simply means that the product contains 0.5 grams or less of trans fats per serving. Given that most studies now show that trans fats in ANY quantity are harmful this can be problematic, particularly if consuming more than a single serving or more than one trans fat containing product. A quick glance at the ingredients list will reveal whether a product contains trans fats or not. Watch out for ingredients such as hydrogenated oil, partially hydrogenated oil or shortening.

In fact, I have been noticing a trend recently where labels (that would otherwise be negative) are being used to trick the consumer into thinking that something is healthy. For instance, a grocery chain near me advertises in store with bold signage that their beef is "100% Corn Fed". Cows should never be fed corn!! They are actually unable to digest it properly and it makes them more susceptible to e coli infection which in turn can infect those that ingest their meat. Yet because it's boldly labeled, consumers who don't know any better are tricked into thinking it must be a good thing!

A friend of mine recently sent me an article regarding the relabelling of GMO foods as "biofortified". Nothing could be more misleading than that!!

What do you think? Are the labels that are used by food manufacturers confusing and should they be required to prove their claims? I'd love to hear from you!

Some interesting commentary from Zen Honeycutt (Founder of Moms Across America) regarding the trend towards pesticide and chemical free ingredients.

Also the disturbing reality that companies like Dupont, that manufacture and sell pesticides are also profiting from the sale of probiotics that are used to heal gut damage caused by the very pesticides they sell!!

Vegan Beyond Meat burgers are just ultra-processed patties that can be bad for our health

A few weeks ago I shared with you my concerns over highly processed foods such as the Beyond Meat Burger. As I mentioned in my previous post, the concern is when people mistakenly consume these foods thinking that they are a "healthier" alternative.

According to Michael Rogers, a food scientist at the University of Guelph, "the proliferation of Beyond Meat is only adding to a growing food crisis, where in Canada, 50 per cent of people’s calories come from ultra-processed foods.

“We’ve created a whole new form of malnutrition that, from an evolutionary perspective, didn’t exist until a hundred years ago. There is no anthropological evidence to suggest juvenile Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes [or] that diseases like metabolic syndrome even existed a hundred years ago. And that is a direct consequence of the ultra processing of our foods,” he said.

“These consumers are blindly purchasing foods that they think are healthy because they associate it with a plant. But once that food has been processed, it doesn’t matter if it came from a plant, or a piece of cardboard — whatever — the whole food has gone.”

I'd love to hear what you think. Is having more plant based options a good thing even if they are highly processed? Should food manufacturers be allowed to market these products as healthier alternatives even when the science doesn't support it?

While someone might eat a Beyond Meat burger for ethical reasons, it does little for that person’s health. In fact, it might be more harmful than good

Supermarket Meat Contaminated with Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria.

Overuse of antibiotics in meat production is a real problem. Healthy animals are routinely given antibiotics in order to "compensate for stressful, crowded and unsanitary conditions."

As a result of this overuse, "nearly 80 percent of the bacteria found on meat remain antibiotic resistant. And despite the overwhelming evidence, the government still allows most producers to give highly important antibiotics to healthy animals ... These non-treatment uses are counter to WHO recommendations, and create a breeding ground for antibiotic-resistant bacteria."

EWG’s most recent analysis of more than 47,000 federal government lab tests of bacteria on supermarket meat found an increase in the already high number of pork chops and ground beef contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Very recently, I was part of an online discussion about the health claims of products on grocery store shelves. Specifically, we were discussing the benefits, or lack thereof, of Beyond Meat products. I watched quietly as this product started showing up in what seems to be every grocery store shelf and restaurant.

While I believe wholeheartedly in the merits of a plant based diet, claims by products such as this to be "better for you" really bother me! Why?

Well .. if we take a quick look at the ingredient list we can see that canola is one of the main ingredients in their Beyond Beef Burger. While the company has gone to the trouble of sourcing non-GMO canola it seems somewhat pointless as canola oil of any kind is extremely inflammatory and can cause a whole host of health issues when consumed.
Another ingredient of concern is yeast extract and natural flavours, both forms of MSG, a dangerous neurotoxin. It's also important to note that natural flavours are anything but natural. Although they are derived from natural sources, they are put through numerous chemical processes, thus altering the final product to the point that it no longer resembles anything even remotely natural.

Of less concern, but still not ideal is the use of pea protein isolate. Despite being found in many "healthy" products, isolates are not always the best option. First off, in isolating the protein, we often miss out on the other beneficial and synergistic nutrients present in the food in which they have been isolated from. Furthermore, it would be important to know if the protein was isolated using a chemical process (which often is the case!).

I suppose I would have less of a problem with this product if we just called it what it was ... terrible for human health. But when companies make false claims about the supposed health benefits I take issue.

For those of you that know me, you know that I am very passionate about health and nutrition and get very frustrated when food manufacturers not only choose to use harmful ingredients in their products but then go so far as to claim that they are healthy!! Sadly most people are unaware that this happens. The general belief is that if it’s on a store shelf it must be safe. AND IT SHOULD BE! Unfortunately this is far from true. People are getting sicker and sicker with more disease than ever before and this is largely attributable to the “food” that we consume.

I believe that everyone has a right to know what’s in their food and food manufacturers should have an obligation to ensure product safety. It is my goal to make people aware of what is happening so that they can make more informed choices for themselves and their families.

I'd love to hear what you think. Should food manufacturers be obligated to ensure ingredient safety? Should we be holding companies accountable?

Feel free to reach out if you’d like more information. I’m always happy to share!!

Third of early deaths could be prevented by everyone giving up meat, Harvard says

A recent study out of Harvard suggests "... that at least 200,000 lives could be saved each year if people cut meat from their diets."

Scientists involved in this study believe that even this may be vastly underestimating the value of a plant based diet.

The idea of food as medicine has clearly been established. Every bite of food that we consume is either healing us or fuelling disease.

“Prescribing” fruits and veggies would save $100 billion in medical costs

Finally the world is catching up!! FOOD IS MEDICINE!! We need to ditch the prescription pills and experience the true healing that comes from a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.

According to the CDC "roughly 70% of diseases in the U.S. are chronic and lifestyle-driven .. and nearly half of the population has one or more chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, asthma, heart disease, obesity, or cancer".

At face value, these statistics are frightening, however, each of us has the power to change it one food choice at a time.

Researchers at Tufts University made the case that subsidized fruits and vegetables could prevent millions of cases of chronic diseases.

Happy World Sleep Day!!! 😴 Are you getting enough sleep?

Did you know that sleep is critical for healing? Its true!! Nourishing our bodies is about more than just eating the right foods. Ensuring that we get the right amount of sleep, eat the right foods and remove toxins from our lives (including emotional ones) are all part of the healing journey.

There are many things that can lead to sleep problems including a sluggish liver, heavy metal overload as well as digestive and adrenal issues. Working to relieve the body of these issues will lead to a more restful sleep.

If you have trouble staying asleep try going to bed earlier. Our bodies do the greatest amount of healing between the hours of 10pm to 2am. Getting sleep during this window will do a great deal towards repairing and restoring your body.

How much sleep do you get in a night? Tell me in the comments below.

Happy Valentines Day! ❤️ Today is the day of LOVE!! So celebrate the love in your life. I’m not just talking about romantic love but the love you share with friends, family and most importantly YOURSELF!!

There are so many ways to show yourself love. Maybe it’s going for a walk and connecting with nature or a taking time out for a relaxing massage. It can even be as simple as taking a few moments each day to breath deeply and be present.

One of the ways that I love myself is by eating well and giving my body the nourishment it needs. As part of my daily routine I drink 16oz of celery juice on an empty stomach every morning just before my heavy metal detox smoothie. Celery is an incredibly hydrating herb with amazing healing properties.

So go ahead and do something nice for yourself today. You deserve it!!

What are some of your favourite ways to show yourself some love? 💕💕
