found in deodorant products have been banned because they posed a health
hazard to users. Today, most still contain numerous questionable chemicals,
including aluminum chlorohydrate, a substance that may be implicated in
the development of breast cancer. Crystal Body Deodorant, is not only

it to be MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE than the chemical deodorants we used before!

intake of pesticides—sometimes dramatically so. When organic
is not available, eat fruits and vegetables with consistently low
pesticide loads. The Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce ranks
pesticide contamination for 46 popular fruits and vegetables based
on an analysis of over 100,000 tests for pesticides on these foods,
conducted from 1992 - 2001 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture
and the Food and Drug Administration.
Rosacea is a common but little-known disorder
of the facial skin that affects an estimated 14 million Americans
-- and most of them don't know it. In fact, while rosacea is becoming
increasingly widespread as the baby boom generation enters the most
susceptible ages, a Gallup survey found that 78 percent of Americans
have no knowledge of this condition, including how to recognize it
and what to do about it. Common symptoms includ redness on the cheeks,
nose, chin or forehead; small visible blood vessels on the face;
adult acne; and watery or irritated eyes.
