Information For Cancer Prevention

Here is a website we came across recently and thought it was important to share the info!

I don't know anyone who isn't concerned (at least a little) about cancer. Cancer rates have increased steadily over the years and most of us have lost someone to one kind of cancer or another. Well here is a website that gives information about how to cut your risk of cancer by giving information so you can make smart lifestyle changes.

There is information about cosmetics, household cleaners, pesticides, food and so much more! It is definitely something you will want to read through well, maybe even a few times, so that next time you buy any of these products you can make smarter choices, help reduce toxic chemicals in your home and our environment, and reduce your risk of cancer (and other diseases and disorders). Remember, every time you buy something you are voting with your dollar so vote for health and a non toxic environment :)

Here is something that may be of interest to you.... toothpowder!

I learned about toothpowder a few months ago while reading about toothpaste and how to make your own. I was intrigued with the idea of homemade toothpaste because regular toothpaste has fluoride and other undesirable ingredients so I thought I might try making my own. Then I came across toothpowder and learned quite a bit. I especially like that it actually remineralizes and strengthens enamel!!

Here are some of the benefits I found interesting:

(taken from

*DailyCare Toothpowder. Ounce for ounce, and brushing for brushing, contains more minerals essential for strong, healthy teeth than any other dental care product.
*Naturally effervescent.
*Less abrasive than brushing with just a wet toothbrush
*Cleans and polishes teeth
*Hardens and remineralizes tooth enamel without potentially toxic fluoride.
*Leaves your entire mouth feeling fresh and tingly.
*Up to 200 brushings per 2 oz. bottle. Lower cost and less environmentally-polluting packaging waste.
*Contains myrrh to support the gums
*DailyCare comes in Mint, Cinnamon, Anise and "mint-free" Lemon Lime flavors.
*SpecialCare Toothpowders: Including TartarGuard and ExtraBrite for those who have special needs. These special toothpowders contain additional ingredients such as Enzymes, Zinc, and Peroxide for enhanced health and cosmetic benefits.

Or stop into the store, we have tried it, carry it and love it :)
