The Dangers of Soap

Cleanliness is next to godliness, but many soaps are outright made under devilish practices. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4496/woman-scratching-face-thumb.jpg
Cleanliness is next to godliness, but many soaps are outright made under devilish practices.

The ingredients in many mass-brand and designer-brand soaps are made with ingredients known to damage skin, penetrate the body and can have potentially dangerous effects with long-term use.

Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS)


Commercial brand soaps contain Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS), also known as Sodium Dodecyl and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLFS), for its lathering effect. But this chemical called SLS is highly toxic and should be avoided at all costs. It causes eye damage, especially in babies and little children, when it gets into the eyes.

Numerous researchers have known for years that Sodium Laurel Sulfate is a skin irritant. Sodium Laurel Sulfate is used as a laboratory standard for irritating skin and inducing contact dermatitis. Sodium Laurel Sulfate irritates the skin by inflaming it. Many uninformed individuals are exacerbating chronic skin conditions by using soap, harmful soaps.

Animal fat

Most soap brands on the market also contain animal fat.

This is important if you are a vegan or one who abstains from consumption and use of animals and animal byproducts. The animal fat used in soap is called tallow.

Artificial fragrance

Commercial brand soaps contain synthetic chemicals to make them smell a certain way. 'Perfume' as a general word and ingredient means chemically derived fragrance.

Commercial brand soaps are using synthetic smells but these synthetic smells are chemically derived from harmful substances and agents.

Natural alternatives to soap

Natural brands of soap are made of or from glycerin, which is plant derived. Glycerin-based soaps are okay to use for bathing and showering purposes.

There are natural soaps that lather, and it's OK if the sodium laurel sulfate is derived from coconut. Coconut-based soaps make for some of the best natural soaps, especially if you like foam and lather.

Good alternative brands of soap include:
  • Kiss My Face
  • Grandpa
  • Nubian Heritage
  • Dr. Bronner's (liquid and bar soaps)
  • Juniper Ridge
  • Alaffia
  • EO
  • Natural Beauty
  • Mono Tiare Tahiti
  • South of France
  • River Soap Company
  • Organic Grooming
  • Tom's of Maine
  • Nature's Gate, and
  • Whole Foods Market (365)
Dherbs.com lists these natural soap brand companies above (and a few more not listed above in this article) and their respective website addresses in our must-have "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual" Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual e-book which is a great resource for anyone interested in natural and healthy living.

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
