Welcome to the Toxic Test

There are over 80,000 chemicals used in the United States. 11,000 of these chemicals are banned in Europe and Japan due to safety concerns. They are found in products we use everyday to clean our homes, our bodies and our children. It only takes 26 seconds for chemicals from shampoos, laundry detergent, household soaps, cosmetics, lotions, household cleaners and many more products found in the home, to enter the blood stream.

The proof of this is in our children’s cord blood where over 200 chemicals have been found, chemicals that have been coursing through their veins from the beginning of when their tiny brains and bodies first began to develop.

If these chemicals are in your home, They are in you!

The next 5 minutes may be the most important 5 minutes in your life. We have created the Toxic Test so you can learn just how many dangerous chemicals are in your home. We’ve also included compelling research below to help you learn the truth about what these chemicals are doing to our bodies and supplied tools for you to spread awareness of this chemical epidemic.

Please help us help you make your home a healthier place to raise your family.

Want to know more about why we created the toxic test? Read a letter from our CEO.
Over 80,000 chemicals are manufactured and sold everyday. These chemicals can be found in common household products. These chemicals are seeping into our ground water... they poison our food. If these chemicals are in your products, they are in you. It only takes 26 seconds for the chemicals in dozens of products found in the typical home to enter your bloodstream.
These 4 Organs are Major Targets of Toxic Chemicals. (It's important to detox, support, and replenish these vital organs with healthy ingredients.)

Liver

The liver processes many chemicals entering the body through the mouth, nose, skin or bloodstream.

Bladder

The bladder is the "last stop" for many processed chemicals and may be damaged by high levels of exposure.

Kidneys

The kidneys serve as a natural filter of the blood, and remove waste from the body.

Digestive System

The digestive system supports the majority of the immune system so it is critical to support and detoxify this system regularly to keep it running smoothly.

Not only are these chemicals in us,But they are also in our unborn babies!We must protect the most vulnerable

...The developing fetus is one of the most vulnerable populations, if not the most vulnerable, to environmental exposure.
Their organ systems aren't mature and their detox methods are not in place, so cord blood gives us a good picture of exposure during this most vulnerable time of life.

Babies are born pre-polluted
With toxic chemicals

baby

In the months before birth, the umbilical cord brings over 300 quarts of blood each day. It supplies all the nutrients and oxygen the baby needs to develop. But... it can also carry the chemicals and pollutants from the environment.

An Environmental Working Group
and Commonweal study* of blood in the umbilical cord found:
an average of 200 chemicals and pollutants with 287 different types of chemicals found in the group

180 may cause cancer in humans or animals.
217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system.
208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests.
