It is really crucial to be aware of what we put on our skin, not just for our children but for ourselves. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it absorbs everything. So if you're putting on toxic chemicals, that's just going to go straight to the organs and straight to the blood stream. So I am a big advocate of using all natural oils and creams both for the children and for ourselves. That is crucial. As far as women go, one in three they say may have breast cancer. And that's just frightening and alarming. And I think we have to look not only at our food source but also at what we're putting on our bodies. So that is something I'm very passionate about and hope people will become more aware about. One of the things people are not aware of is that when they shave under their arms they are taking off the dead skin. And then they slather on anti-perspirants and deodorants. And that's going straight into your blood stream and straight into your breast tissue. So that is something that I talk about a lot with my teenage daughter and I try to get her to use more of the natural deodorants that don't have aluminum in them and are just basically deodorants and not anti-perspirants. It's also very important to check your creams and make sure they don't carry lead or phthalates or parabens, because almost every tissue of somebody that's had breast cancer, every tissue that's been examined has had phthalates and parabens in them. And that's a really alarming situation. So I think we need to wake up and realize that what we put on our body is basically what we're going to become.
