Why Are These Ingredients In The Products We Use?
There are many reasons. The first one that comes to mind is profit. Many of the ingredients used in these products are industrial waste by products that would normally cost to dispose of. Instead product manufacturers can buy these by products for cheap and make profit off of selling the finished product at an inflated cost.
These by products are not fit for human consumption. Many are carcinogenic. Many are toxic and accumulative. Many are being used by you and everyone you know every day and until you start researching you will continue to do this to yourself and wonder why you can’t get healthy.
You can find simple, healthy alternatives easily. You can make many of the products yourself using organic ingredients. You can find organic version of these products, but still remember to read the ingredients list!
Once you start becoming aware and conscious of what you are doing you will lead a healthier life.
