L’Oréal ads tell us to buy the company’s products “because you’re worth it” but some of its products contain toxic chemicals. Compared to companies like Target and Unilever, which have each made important public commitments on toxic chemicals, L’Oréal is lagging behind.
Our partners at the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found chemicals linked to cancer in L’Oréal products including formaldehyde, Benzophenone-1, and titanium dioxide.
These harmful chemicals were found in a range of L’Oréal products, from kids’ shampoo to eye shadow.

We are making PROGRESS! CVS has announced it’s removing numerous toxic chemicals from hundreds of its store-brand beauty and personal care products. By the end of 2019, these nearly 600 products will no longer contain parabens, phthalates or formaldehyde-releasers. Check out all the details in the joint news release with CVS.
This means that millions of families will have healthier products at their fingertips—without shopping in a special section or spending more. This is a big win for our health! Join us in thanking CVS for taking action on toxic chemicals.
One area of advocacy work I've been involved in is Mind The Store! This group has done an excellent job with retailers. They have been working with health advocates across the nation to encourage retailers to safeguard our health from toxic chemicals and CVS is just the latest company to announce major progress. Target announced a new chemical policy in January and Walmart announced big progress on reducing chemicals of concern last year. Guess what—we are winning!
The idea of Mind The Store campaign is simple—retailers control what products they sell so we’re asking them to make sure those products don’t contain toxic chemicals. We’ve seen time and again that consumers can get companies to act on important health issues—often faster than we can get the government to act.
I want to thank you for everything you’ve done to help our Mind the Store campaign!

So how do I get rid of chemicals already in my body?
I suggest everyone have urine testing done. It is very affordable, easy and the results can save your life. Once we know what toxic chemicals and levels you have we can elevated and target removal with evidenced based detoxification programs.
Bisphenol A (BPA) Urine Testing is done to detect chemicals like bisphenol A that occurs mostly through digestion of food and liquids that have been stored and heated in plastic materials. This test also measures Triclosan which biaccumulates in the body and is considered to block thyroid activity affecting metabolism and thyroid hormone signaling.
Another chemical this urine testing lets us know about is 4-Nonylphenol which is often used as a surfactant, found in industrial detergent, foaming agents, dispersants, and emulsifiers. Most exposure is through the skin. This toxin is a endocrine disruptor and all endocrine disruptors have been shown to lead to cancer.
Urine Testing can be ordered in Dr. Carly's Store!

Just when you think it can't possibly get any worse, Monsanto gets a patent on Glyphosate formulations and their use for the inhibition of 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase.
Let me translate this for you....Monsanto's Roundup or any of it's carcinogenic ingredients should never be discussed in the same conversation of antibiotics nor should it ever be used on crops that animals and humans consume. Pesticides contribute to so much disease and sorrow in our world. Every cancer patient must immediately stop eating toxic plants as they fight for their life with life-style changes. Every patient experiencing early cognitive impairment must immediately stop consuming toxic plants and fight for memory recovery.

According to Green Med Info LLC whose work is reproduced and distributed with the permission of GreenMedInfo wrote an excellent educational article titled Is Roundup Weedkiller A Brain-Damaging Neurotoxin?
I teach patients relentlessly to consume only organic produce because pesticides block acetylcholine which is a critically needed chemical in your brain and when this happens your brain will not work.
There is no way to fight Monsanto except for not purchasing products that have chemicals sprayed all over them and placed within the seed itself. Your best defense is to eat certified organic, non-gmo, hormone and antibiotic free, grass fed/finished and kosher. Purchase as much insurance with "labeling" as you can. The only other options you have is to grow your own food and do eat out unless it is absolutely a must and then hunt to find the cleanest food you can!

The FDA has issued a final ruling and has established that over-the-counter (OTC) consumer antiseptic wash products containing certain active ingredients can no longer be marketed.
There are a number of reasons but one immediate reason is the toxic chemicals Triclosan and triclocarban that are in the products.. These two chemicals are used in products intended to reduce or prevent bacterial contamination. They are added to antibacterial soaps and body washes, toothpastes, and even cosmetics.
Here is the problem:
Some short-term animal studies have shown that exposure to high doses of triclosan is associated with a decrease in the levels of some thyroid hormones. Anyone with a thyroid diagnosis getting exposed to Triclosan?
I know people are afraid of germs. and of getting sick but as this FDA announcement points out —there is NO EVIDENCE that anti=microbials added to soap decrease infections compared to regular soap and water.
The final FDA rule is that companies will no longer be able to market antibacterial washes with these ingredients because the FDA cannot demonstrate that the ingredients are both safe for long-term daily use and more effective than plain soap and water in preventing illness and the spread of certain infections.
I think a pledge should mean something, don't you? It’s a promise you make to someone that you intend to keep. So when SC Johnson promises that their products don’t contain formaldehyde, we expect them to fulfill that promise. After all, formaldehyde is a cancer-causing chemical that doesn’t belong in household cleaning products.
That’s why we were disappointed to find Pledge® wipes contain DMDM hydantoin and quaternium-15—preservatives that release formaldehyde into products. What does that say for SC Johnson’s pledge of “no formaldehyde”?
Take action! Tell SC Johnson to honor its pledge of no formaldehyde by ditching these toxic chemicals and upholding their own standards! Click here.
SCJ is a company that repeatedly touts its commitment to transparency – and it’s true that they are leading the industry in ingredient disclosure because of YOU raising your voice.
SCJ also touts its commitment to product safety and upholds their Greenlist™ chemical screening process as evidence of this commitment. But the criteria for this chemical screening process is kept secret. What we do know: Greenlist™ forbids formaldehyde, but apparently allows chemicals that are known to release formaldehyde. Huh?
Claiming to forbid formaldehyde but allowing chemicals that knowingly release it is misleading.
SC Johnson made a pledge to their customers to tell the truth. Tell them to honor it by eliminating toxic chemicals like formaldehyde releasers, and to come clean about how they define “safe”.
Zika. Zee-kah. You’ve heard about how this mosquito-borne virus is barreling through the southern Americas, namely Brazil, and how it’s potentially linked to microcephaly, a condition wherein newborns are born with shrunken heads and severe disability.The World Health Organization said Thursday the virus could infect up to 4 million people this year. Since the Zika outbreak first sprouted in Brazil in May 2015, the country has notched around 4,000 cases of microcephaly.
The CDC Director Tom Frieden said "There have been isolated cases of spread through blood transfusion or sexual contact. The virus is in the blood for about a week. How long it remains in the semen is something that needs to be studied more. Zika has been sexually transmitted in Texas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday. It is the first known case of the virus being locally acquired in the continental United States in the current outbreak.Click article here
Lack of funding is why scientist have not been able to do more. Scientists say not nearly is being done before the virus sparks a global emergency. We do not have a medicine or vaccine to treat the infection. Only one in five people show symptoms of the disease and don't seek medical treatment - meaning Zika is a benign illness for the vast majority of patients.
The virus is spreading quickly and what makes it so scary is that Scientists probing the rapid onslaught of the virus claim pregnant women can catch it through unprotected sex. The best way to prevent infections is using DEET, covering most of the body with long pants and shirts and staying inside. The CDC Director Tom Frieden said "There have been isolated cases of spread through blood transfusion or sexual contact. The virus is in the blood for about a week. How long it remains in the semen is something that needs to be studied more."

Lots of talk going on in the media wars with each other and quoting the science and trying to make the issue of Measles, Vaccines and Children a Political issue. Simply put if you let thousands of immigrants into the country with no healthcare then this is exactly what we would expect to see..........disease running rampant. Its predictable and it should not surprise any public heathcare provider or any American citizen. President Obama did not step out and lead and immigration reform was not implemented and now we have a much bigger healthcare crises.
However, I really wish when news media quote studies they would actually READ the study and see the flaws. I heard one evening woman news host quote a particular study and say something that went like this " studies have shown that there is NO problems with thimerosol exposure." However, when I looked at this Lance Study it reported that only 33 subjects were evaluated and they used various amount of thimersol. She never mentioned that one little fact!
The Journal of the American Medical Association reported no increase risk of autism with thimerosol but according to the study the authors were affiliated with the state-run Statens Serum Institute and 89% of the institute's profits are from vaccines!
I have my own theories on Autism Disease and I personally feel that single dose vials need to be instituted. When you have mult-dose vials and the nurse does not shake, shake, shake the vial you will have heavy metals all sitting on the bottom of the vial and you would not want to be the person who gets the last dose of that vial! Poor nursing or medial tech care could be a possible answer from a lack of understanding of the chemistry of heavy metals.
Another explanation is genetic predisposition and an inappropriate liver phase one and phase two pathways and/or a lack of very critical nutrients that are needed to run these pathways. Therefore, the patient simply cannot unload the metals like someone else can. We have simple laboratory testing for these pathways and if they are not working correctly I would highly recommend fixing the pathways long before vaccines are introduced to an infant.
Another hypothesis could be GUT Issues. Many children with autism do not have sufficient microflora (good bacteria) in their guts to adequately receive the nourishment they need from their digestive tracts or to support a healthy immune system. Click here to read my article on this very critical piece of information. Autism is one of the most mysterious and challenging conditions facing conventional medicine today, but it need not be! Politics needs to get back to what they should be doing and that is securing our borders!
Heavy Metals in our food is a big concern but a bigger concern to me as a Healthcare Provider is the physical impacts they have in the human body. I test heavy metals in the patients and the elevated levels in most of my patients and clients is very significant. Elevated heavy metals in the blood and tissues contributes to almost every disease and interferes with healthy cellular function. Heavy Metals bio-accumulate in the human body and can lead to degenerative disorders.
I recommend you read the work published by the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center. People are essentially unaware of the risks and potential disease causing outcome of these toxins getting into the body from sources that most people think are safe.
Lead has been found in herbs such as ginkgo as well as in Cacao powders and in mascara products! Mercury was so elevated in Maine lobster that the government halts fisheries!
The industry needs a standard and Mike Adams, Executive Director of the Consumer Wellness Center has reported the USDA nor the FDA have expressed any interest in promoting or enforcing such a standard. Natural News developed and published testing and standards.

Scientific fraud at the CDC? Great job by Natural News and Mike Adams for their publishing work in bringing this story to the public. Is the CDC covering up the link between Autism and Vaccines?
An article detailing the finding was published in the scientific journal, TRANSLATIONAL NEURODEGENERATION but was just pulled citing, “serious concerns about the validity of its conclusions.” Adams likens the removal of the article to “Burning Books” stating “the journal... did not find any scientific errors with the study.” To read the full article click here.

Every time I test a person for Heavy Metals and the test comes back with elevated blood levels of Arsenic my patients always ask the same question, "where am I getting Arsenic from?"
Here is my professional recommendations:
1. Switch to non-rice baby cereals
2. Avoid brown rice syrup as a sweetener
3. Limit certain fruit juices to a maximum of one-half to one cup per day
4. Do not use rice milk as a dairy substitute for cow's milk
If you're preparing rice, rinse it thououghly. Boil brown rice in a lot of water (as you do with pasta).

Before the widespread use of fluoride in dentistry, dental fluorosis was rarely found in western countries. However, according to our researchers we have dentistry, toothpaste, and most U.S. water supplies containing fluoride chemicals at unprecedented levels. According to the CDC, 41% of American adolescents now have some form of fluorosis. (CDC, 2010)
The Fluoride Action Network develops and maintains the world’s most comprehensive online database on fluoride compounds. The information in the database is free and available for anyone seeking to educate themselves. As I always preach "information is power."
12% of cases occur in the age group of 14 to 24 year old, especially in college students. I only had to see this disease once in my career to spend the rest of my life telling youth to NOT share glasses, eating utensils, or toothbrushes or anything that someone has in or near their mouth.

To the parents and kids who laugh and make fun of those who try to educate you please allow your ignorance room to get educated! Education Saves Lives! We do not want one more person to die of this disease or lose a body part when vaccinations stop this disease. KNOW THE SYMPTOMS & GET TO A HOSPITAL
Right now, Starbucks is serving milk to millions of customers every day from factory farms along with baked good products chock full of GMOs. As if that weren’t bad enough, as a dues paying member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), Starbucks has helped lead the charge in fighting against common sense GMO labeling in the U.S.
In the past 2 years alone, Starbucks has been a part of a GMA-led coalition that has donated more than $70 million dollars to defeat GMO labeling efforts in California and Washington State.By opposing GMO labeling, Starbucks has willingly climbed in bed with Monsanto and the GMA and is intentionally misleading customers about their commitment to “sustainability” and “ethical sourcing”.
Tell Starbucks to stop fighting against GMO labeling and commit to serving the most sustainable dairy option - organic milk - at all of its locations. Every voice counts! Add Your Voice CLICK HERE.
