I found this great checklist for home toxins from the Environmental Working Group. Check it out:
Walk through your home and open your bathroom cabinet, look under your sink, and check those laundry supplies. It's an easy, hands-on way to create a less toxic environment for your family. And when you're done, you can breathe easier knowing that you've tackled the toxins that matter most in your home.

Did you know that corn chips are one of the worst genetically modified foods that you can eat? About 85 percent of the corn grown in the US is genetically engineered to either produce an insecticide, or to survive the application of herbicide. And about 91-93 percent of all soybeans are genetically engineered to survive massive doses of Roundup herbicide. What this means is that nearly ALL foods you buy that contain either corn or soy, in any form, is genetically modified unless it’s certified organic by the USDA. Other major genetically modified crops include cottonseed and canola. The following article that is an interview with Jeffery Smith, author of the bestseller Seeds of Deception, explains how genetically modified foods cause health problems, and their potential for creating a vast array of unforeseen and surprising illnesses, and also sheds light on how the corruption within the U.S. government, the FDA and the GMO industry has allowed, and perpetuated, the cover-up.
