A practical and helpful book that everyone can enjoy
As an award-winning journalist and holistic health advocate, Beth Greer summarizes the results of research and insights of many in the fields of health, food, and environmental toxins in "Super Natural Home."
"Super Natural Home" has three sections (10 chapters), covering the following subjects: What Goes in You: How to Eliminate Exposure to Toxic Chemicals in Your Food and Drinking Water; What Goes on You: How to Choose Safe Cosmetic and Body Care Products; What Surrounds You: How to Minimize Indoor Air Pollution in Your Home Environment.
Beth Greer has compiled some convincing statistics. For example, many of the chemicals found in everyday consumer products cause breast cancer in animals; indoor air can be 5 to 100 times more polluted than the outside air due to the toxic fumes emitted from carpeting, paint, wallpaper and household cleaner.
She has proposed some practical and incremental steps to improve your health, home, and planet: avoid pesticides, food additives (MSG, trans fat, artificial sweeteners), factory-farmed foods, genetically foods, unfiltered tap water; eat organic food and nonorganic fruit and vegetable with the fewest traces of pesticides whenever possible.
Beth Greer also lists many useful resources, and healthy foods, etc. in the book.
"Super Natural Home" has 256 pages. It is a practical and helpful book that everyone can enjoy.
