10 Cancer-Causers to Remove From Your Home
The last one is important. Lots of bad chemicals are created from plastics when heated to microwave oven cooking temperatures. Worst are popcorn and not so bad veggies in a 'steam bag'. Take the stuff out and place it on a ceramic plate cover with a paper towel or a ceramic or glass bowl, microwave safe, of course and most are. When microwaving a food, the less the time exposure the better. I like using a steamer for my veggies.

10 Cancer-Causers to Remove From Your Home

Given poor government regulation, many of the cleaning products available on the market contain “everyday” carcinogens such as formaldehyde, nitrobenzene, methylene chloride, and napthelene, as well as reproductive toxins and hormone disruptors. Not to mention other ingredients that cause liver, kidney and brain damage, allergies and asthma.

1. Air fresheners: Often contain napthelene and formaldehyde. Try zeolite or natural fragrances from essential oils.

2. Art supplies: Epoxy and rubber cement glues, acrylic paints and solvents, and permanent markers often contain carcinogens.

3. Automotive supplies: Most are toxic. Keep them safely away from the house and dispose of at a hazardous waste disposal center.

4. Candles: Avoid artificially scented paraffin candles that produce combustion by-products, including soot. Beeswax only, with cotton wicks.

5. Carpet and upholstery shampoos: Use only wet-clean, natural ingredients.

6. Dry-cleaning: Choose clothes that don’t need perchlorethylene to clean them. Ask for the wet-cleaning option at you local cleaners, or seek dry-cleaners that use liquid C02 or citrus juice cleaners.

7. Flea, tick and lice control: Avoid lindane-based pesticides [Diatomaceous earth (will dry up any bug with an exoskeleton) in a sock, rubbed over your pet works well or applied directly. Watch the dust..don't breath too much!]

8. Paints and varnishes: Always chose low- or no-VOC finishes.

9. Household pesticides: Go natural. Make a Sugar Ant Hotel. [Diatomaceous earth or boric acid work well and are cheap]

10. Microwaves: Never microwave or heat food in a plastic container. [not even the ones the food comes in]
