At this day and age, we must be extremely cautious of the products we use in our daily lives, what ingredients make such products and how they affect our health
Mountain View, CA (Vocus) October 13, 2010
EcoBold, a leading provider of online video reviews of various green and eco-friendly products, released today a video that aims at bringing awareness towards cancer causing products. Cancer has affected our nation in many ways. According to the American Cancer Society, the rate of breast cancer alone has almost doubled from 7% in 1960 to 12.5% today. Furthermore, research shows that cancer spending has tripled from $27 billion in 1990 to over $90 billion in 2008, and this number doesn’t even include the people that are turning down treatments due to the high cost. Lastly, 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime.
“At this day and age, we must be extremely cautious of the products we use in our daily lives, what ingredients make such products and how they affect our health,” Steffany Boldrini, founder of EcoBold.com says. It is estimated that in the last sixty years, more than 80,000 synthetic chemicals have invaded our world, and over 40 million tons are manufactured worldwide. Some of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, developmental toxicity, birth defects, allergies, and even death. Several of these chemicals are inside our own homes, and can be found in our furniture, mattress, skincare products and even in the pots and pans that we cook our own food with. These chemicals not only end up in our own bodies, most end up in our environment and can harm forests, rivers, oceans, and affect animals at unforeseen rates. “Our goal with this video is not only to bring awareness towards what is surrounding us, but also to show the public that there are several alternatives out there,” Steffany adds.
There is a considerable amount of green companies making safe and natural products that are not only better for our environment but also for our health. They just need to be found by consumers. “With the products made by these great green companies, we are able to bring safer items inside our own homes,” Steffany says. At EcoBold.com our lifetime goal is to make green products available and affordable to every family. By voting with your dollar, you can make a tremendous statement.
