Remove Toxins From Your Yard

Pesticides increase your risk of dozens of cancers, not to mention the virtual certainty of endocrine disruption and, eventually, insulin resistance.

Getting the pesticides out of your home and your yard is pretty much job one.

NO:  Weed killer

Chemical lawn treatment companies use atrazine, a weed killer proven to cause extreme endocrine disruption.

Boy frogs treated with atrazine look fine from the outside but grow girl parts on the inside – part of the reason frogs are dying out all over the world.

YES:  Make your lawn organic

Mowing, watering, and fertilizing lawns contribute approximately 2% of America’s fossil-fuel consumption and 10% of our air pollution.

YES:  Plant a native garden

Beneficial bacteria found in soil could even help your brain produce more serotonin.

One study found that the bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae activates pathways similar to the effects of antidepressant drugs.

Ditch your dry cleaner

Sierra Club has asked the EPA to ban nonylphenol and nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), estrogenic chemicals found in dry-cleaning products, about 400 million pounds of which are produced each year.

Europe and Canada have already banned them.

Until it happens, avoid dry cleaning, or find a dry cleaner that uses alternative products.

If you must dry clean, remove the clothes from the plastic bag and air them outside for at least 4 hours.
