Have you ever looked at the ingredients of a typical (grocery) store product? I can almost guarantee there will be two - three names which sound scientific and unnatural. As some of you may agree, I believe nature contains a ready - to - use product for every situation a human may need. From sicknesses, to beauty amplification, to disorders and pain, there is a biological substance out there. 

Everyday Canadians are exposed to hundreds or thousands of synthetic toxins, through the food they eat, the air they breathe, the clothes they wear, and the water they drink and wash with. The health effects and illnesses are warning signs: in China, where there are many cars and people, the chemicals in car exhaust results in air pollution so bad that citizens need to be hospitalized for respiratory illnesses. In Canada, we are still experiencing allergies, skin disorders, and discomforts relating to health issues (headaches, body weakness, impaired functioning) at least partially due to our everyday interaction with substances. These substances have been derived from chemical methods which are chosen and purchased by producers for the additive's efficiency,  longevity, and efficacy, rather than it's long-term environmental effects or it's influence upon humans and other living beings. 

I personally can recall how bland Genetically Modified (GMO) foods taste. They pale in comparison to the natural tangy, earthy, and deep rooted sensations of local and organic foods.  I use homemade, non - processed materials for my personal beauty and care products, and am astonished by the discomfort I once put up with in the past. The overwhelming smells, colours, and textures of the cheap and popular products on many media advertisements led me to accept my abnormal body functioning and state as "normal". As a sensitive person, I find that using organic ingredients is a hands-down, no comparison, better experience than using fake ingredients which make my emotions, senses, and organs defensive and irritable. Honesty, I can feel the chemicals remain with me long after I stop using them, signifying they are foreign and powerful enough to cause harm to me. Meanwhile, the natural ingredients are much gentler, simply integrating to become a useful and beneficial part of my system, like a healthy snack or a warm moment under the spring sunshine. 

But, let's also think about the environment. Pesticides, artificial fragrances and additives such as food preservatives actually get released into the waters, back into the soils which grow the food we eat. From the toilet to the oceans, to the seafood and back up to the sky, to the rain, to the soil, to the bugs, plants, wildlife, and food, and into our skins (if you garden or walk in the soil). It's bad news for sealife and creatures which eat sealife such as seagulls, as well as insects, skunks, squirrels, bees, bears, and  other birds. They have to also ingest foreign substances which may lead to all sorts of health issues.

Therefore, the chemicals we buy and use can very likely become the genetic and molecular make up of our bodies...! Fast forward a few generations, and the principle of sustainability, safety, and unity are disturbingly unclear.
