I've recently purchased the book How Everyday Products Make People Sick: Toxins at Home and in the Workplace
, written by Paul D. Blanc
from the University of California. He is recognized as one of the leading experts in Occupational and Environmental Medicine.
I've perused through it but haven't had the time to really go through it.
Buts...... You mentioned two of my most difficult health challenges, Phthalates and BPA, especially the forms of these nasty two chemicals when they are put into plastic products.
It took me several years to find a place where I could buy eyeglasses that did not effect my breathing and make me sick as a dog!
I went through just about every different eyeglass company, burning through hundreds of dollars, but could not wear the glasses without suffering from difficult or labored breathing.
Anyways...... I thought that I would contribute my book offering to your thread.
