The news from Japan during the past month has been tragic: the terrible loss of life and devastation caused by the earthquake and tsunami, and then the damage to the nuclear plant and the subsequent spread of radiation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese as they struggle to recover.
When tragedies occur, we usually wonder how we would react, what would we do? The disaster in Japan has triggered a great deal of speculation around the world, particularly in regards to the safety of nuclear plants.
Since we at Clean-All Heavy Metals®Hand & Body Soap are constantly thinking about safety and health, we realize that a lot of people just take their safety and health for granted, until a terrible event happens. But we think we should all be paying more attention to our environment and the hazards that are dangerous to our health and safety in our everyday lives.
Unlike smoke, which is a sign to take action to protect yourself, you often have no warning that you are being exposed to toxic heavy metals. You can’t see, smell or touch anything that seems dangerous. And because the process of contamination is slow, symptoms are hard to detect or are similar to other less dangerous ailments, so are overlooked.
So it’s best to take a good look at your home, work activities and hobbies and determine whether you and your family are in fact being exposed unknowingly to toxic heavy metals.
