Harmful ingredients in Dish soap and detergents - how washing your dishes/clothes can cause disease and what to do
superdupersingh posted a topic in HEALTH | FITNESS | DIETIf you've never read or researched the ingredients list on your dishwashing liquid/laundry detergent I suggest you do so now. You're in for a big shock. They contain: potent carcinogens, irritants, neurotoxins, endocrine disruptors, volatile organic compounds, fragrances, optical brighteners (aromatic compounds e.g. benzene) to name but a few. https://branchbasics.com/blog/2018/02/laundry-chemicals/ These nasty chemicals actually stay inside the clothes and you absorb them via breathing them into your lungs and through skin contact. Regarding dish soap/liquid you probably think you are not eating it so there isn't a problem, right? WRONG! The surfactants (reduce surface/interfacial tension between surfaces) actually cause there to be a small residual layer of dish soap after washing the dishes, so therefore the next time you use the dishes you are ingesting small amounts of this residue. This adds up over time. Secondly, you're absorbing the toxic chemicals through skin contact when hand-washing dishes. Solution: Wash dishes with: soapnut/lemon liquid or vinegar/ACV or sand. Wash clothes with: soapnut liquid. (soapnuts/reetha available online on Ebay/Amazon) Again another topic where going back to nature will save you from adverse health outcomes. This is a recurring theme. Remember that Guru Ji warned us about following the ways of the world. We are basically committing physical and spiritual suicide if we ignore His advice.
