LGLWSM Newsletter 086 - Danger in Your Shampoo
November 07, 2015

Don't you just hate getting soap in your eyes when you're washing your hair? Man, that stings! At least your shampoo can't really harm you! Or can it?

Last week I found out that a chemical called cocamide dea - a shampoo ingredient that most of us recognize - is engineered coconut oil and not based on the REAL THING... quite the opposite of what I'd been told in the past. It blew me away!

Turns out this stuff - if given the right conditions - can cause a lot of havoc, including giving you cancer. That's risky business.

Most people think that chemicals you wash off can't get absorbed into the body. There's just not enough time. That's simply not true. It only takes a short time for chemicals to reach the bloodstream.

Hope you all had a great Halloween! Lars and I carved our pumpkin, made some buttered popcorn, and watched Halloween the movie. It was fun! Here's our pumpkin from last year - haven't had a chance yet to upload the one from this year. I'll show it to you next newsletter! It was much scarier than this one. Hope to see ya soon! XO
