FAQ Will dryer sheets or eating special herbs and spices, garlic, vitamin B-1, or bananas ward off biting insects? There is a long list of “repellent” urban legends, including these. NONE of these approaches work reliably. If you want to be protected from insect and tick bites, use a DEET-based repellent. Back to Top Do herbal oils, skin lotions, “natural” plant extracts mixed in oil, and homeopathic approaches repel biting insects? Most of these work for about 20 minutes and are no more effective than smearing cooking oil on your skin. In the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, Richard J. Does DEET cause seizures in children? This recurring rumor is without scientific foundation. I have read something about DEET causing neurological symptoms in laboratory animals in studies at a well-known university. The researcher conducting studies used DEET mixed with known neurotoxins, so a neurological finding is not unusual or unexpected in this instance. Can DEET be used with sunscreen? No.

10 Household Cleaners To Avoid At All Costs | Kirsten Hudson Nothing like mopping your floors, scrubbing your counters and cleaning your shower with hazardous waste. That’s essentially what you’re doing if you use many name-brand household cleaners to get your home spic-and-span. But you eco-conscious clean freaks probably already knew that. If you’re concerned about your health and helping the environment, your toxic household cleaners were likely the first to go. And for good reason. The household cleaning industry is largely unregulated and companies aren’t required to include ingredient lists for cleaning products, like they are for food, drugs and personal care products. Companies take advantage of that lack of regulation to make bogus claims about their cleaning products and to include toxic chemicals in their products without letting consumers know. The EWG debuted its EWG Cleaners Database in September 2012. Simple Green Concentrated All-Purpose Cleaner Scrubbing Bubbles – Antibacterial Bathroom Cleaner & Extend-A-Clean Mega Shower Foamer

Dangerous Detergents: Toxic Laundry Chemicals The Fresh, Clean Smell: Air Pollution Have you ever walked around your neighborhood and noticed that fresh smell of someone doing laundry? Bad news: when you breathe in that “clean” familiar scent, you’re actually getting a lung-full of toxic chemicals. According to research by the University of Washington, when scented laundry detergents and fabric softeners are used, dryer vents emit more than 25 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) per load, many of which are classified as hazardous air pollutants. It’s Only a Small Amount of Detergent, Right? Since the average family in the United States washes about 80 pounds of laundry each week, with ½ cup of detergent per load, an average of 4 cups of detergent per home ends up in the waterways and affecting air quality each week. Conventional detergents are comprised of a concoction of fragrances, endocrine disruptors, neurotoxins and potent cancer-causing chemicals. Harmful Ingredients Why did they end up in our laundry products? What to Do?

Chemical of the Day - Home (COTD) Environmental Agency Uncorks Its Own Toxic Water Spill at Colorado Mine DURANGO, Colo. — The Animas River is the cultural soul of this patch of southwestern Colorado, a sort of moving Main Street that hosts multiple floating parades a year and is typically bustling with rafters and kayakers. Schoolchildren study the river. Sweethearts marry on its banks. Its former name, given by Spaniards, is el Río de las Ánimas, the River of Souls. But since Wednesday, the Animas has been grievously polluted with toxic water spilled from one of the many abandoned mines that pockmark the region — a spill for which the Environmental Protection Agency has claimed responsibility, saying it accidentally breached a store of chemical-laced water.
