Lesson 5: How To Reduce Exposure

How to reduce exposure

Tips for reducing Exposure

#1 Personal Care Products

You need to be careful about the shampoos, cosmetics, moisturizers, deodorants, conditioners, and sunscreens that you use. Start small by picking one product and replacing it with a safer alternative, then working your way down the list until all your personal care products are completely safe to use.

#2 Fruits and vegetables

Conventionally grown fruit and vegies contain a lot of herbicides and pesticides. Go for organic alternatives whenever you can. A great place to start is to check out the dirty dozen list and go for organic alternatives for those produce.

#3 Plastics

Plastics and plastic wrap become more dangerous the warmer they get. Avoid heating food or eating it out of plastic containers. Do not drink bottled water if you notice that it has gotten warm. Whenever possible, go for glass or stainless-steel alternatives. 

#4 Canned Foods

If you are going to buy canned food, go for cans that are labeled BPA-free. Plus, try as much as you can not to buy canned tomatoes. Tomatoes are acidic, and they react with chemicals inside the can, which then leech into the tomatoes.

#5 Cleaning Products

You have two options here: choose green products or make your own. Making your own cleaning products is the only way to be sure that everything they contain is safe to use. There are many fantastic recipes online that you can check out.

#6 Water

Conventional urban water systems are filled with chemicals. Use filtered water for drinking and washing whenever you can.
