    The Safe Shopper's Bible

    This is the first book that I have ever read that goes above and beyond to help people differentiate between safe and unsafe products. I was truly amazed by the explanations for ingredients used in products that are listed in the book. I felt that it is a vital lesson that everybody should engage in at some point, even just to know what is being made available to the general public despite its harmful content. Now I find myself referring to this book for it's recommendation on products that I buy! I have been changing a lot of my former choices of products and to my amazement, the products that I switched to, based on the book's advice, actually seems to do a better job! This is truly a book that I will keep as a reference guide for my everyday shopping!

    A great book!

    I found the book to be very informative and helpful -- bought it when it was first published. I would have given it 5 stars, then. Even though I believe the book now needs to be updated, I would recommend it to everyone as an important book to add to their library.

    The Safe Shopper's Bible

    This book contains a lot of valuable information for anyone interested in lowering the amount of toxic and carcinogenic items in their home. I liked the 'recipes' for homemade nontoxic cleaning products. This book also includes easy to understand comparison charts on items from cleaning products to foods, to cosmetics. The comparison charts include some name brands too. The only item I felt was missing was a comparison on facial cleansers. All in all, VERY informative!
