Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that includes PFOA, PFOS, GenX, and many other chemicals. PFAS have been manufactured and used in a variety of industries around the globe, including in the United States since the 1940’s. PFOA and PFOS have been the most extensively produced and studied of these chemicals. Both chemicals are very persistent in the environment and in the human body – meaning they don’t break down and they can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

What it came down to for me was answering a higher calling, to make a difference in the lives of others. Continue reading
When you turn on the faucet for a drink or to make up a baby’s formula bottle, do harmful toxins in that water cross your mind? Tap water has been found to contain many chemicals and impurities. These toxins are 12 of the most dangerous.
Chlorine is a common agent used in the disinfecting process to remove bacteria. It is most often found in swimming pools and used for the purpose of ‘cleaning’ municipal tap water.

Water, the fluid of life and the shaper of the earth, is made from the simplest and most abundant element in the universe, Hydrogen, joined to the vital gas oxygen. Two atoms pair with a single oxygen atom to establish the triple structure water H2O.
