This is an amazingly informative presentation from the Seventh Generation Blog, called 7Gen Blog (but the presenter makes you laugh many times…I promise, it’s not boring, it’s not political, it’s just facts).  I was emailed this by a friend, and while I’ve been learning about how many toxins are in our bodies and all around us for years, this is such an important 22 minutes of film that every person should watch–it can change your life for the better.  Pass it on.

“We all know pollution and toxins are bad for you. But the Environmental Working Group has conducted perhaps the deepest analysis of this issue on the most vulnerable demographic on the planet.
