Household Poisons Are GIVING You M.S.

Doctors have always told us that multiple sclerosis is one of those diseases that strikes out of the blue. 

Seemingly healthy people start developing life-wrecking symptoms. 

And then this disease can slowly rob you of your ability to walk… your speech… your vision… and even your independence. 

But what if M.S. isn’t striking out of the blue after all?

New research PROVES that chemicals sitting in your home RIGHT NOW can send your M.S. risk through the roof. 

And you’ll want to act fast to keep yourself and the people you love safe. 

A new study from Swedish researchers has found that there is a significant connection between the use of “organic solvents” and your risk of developing M.S. 

“Organic” is usually a good word… but not in this case.

An “organic solvent” is a liquid compound containing carbon bonded to hydrogen. 

For instance: hexane, octane, acetone, tetrahydrofuran, 2 butanone, toluene, xylene, ethanol, methanol, isopropanol, and benzene. Just to name a few.

And these chemicals are used in a shocking number of household items: paint, cleaner, glue, varnish, and more.  

The Swedish researchers found that frequent exposure to these toxins increase your risk of M.S. by a whopping 50 percent. 

You see, these chemicals irritate your links. That can trigger an autoimmune response that, over time, turns into M.S. 

And the risk is even higher if you smoke or have certain genetic markers. 

It’s amazing to me that the U.S. government keeps allowing these toxic chemicals to stay on the market… and to make their way into our homes. 

A study by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found more than 150 common household chemicals that are linked to autoimmune reactions, birth defects, and cancer.

Thankfully, there’s good news: For every toxic chemical you’ll want to cut out of your life, there’s a safe and effective solution.

Paint brands now offer options free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Organic cleaning agents (REAL organic cleaners) are readily available in supermarkets – even from brands like Clorox.

And, of course, you can make many of these products at home without any added toxins:

  • Vinegar cleans glass and windows.
  • Hydrogen peroxide disinfects surfaces and countertops.
  • For floors, just add a small amount of liquid castile soap to a bucket of hot water.
  • To polish wood furniture, use almond, walnut, or olive oil and wipe off any excess. 
  • Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide remove almost any stain. 
  • Use an essential oil diffuser instead of “air freshener” sprays full of VOCs.
