Toksin dan Racun Di Dalam Produk Barangan Bayi

Sejak mengandung anak pertama hingga kini saya memang rajin menggoogle produk selamat untuk bayi. Bukan tak percaya pada kaedah yang orang tua kendalikan selama ni, tapi sebab zaman dah berubah. Sebab apa:

1. Cara pemakanan kita telah berubah sejak 20 tahun yang lalu berbanding 100 tahun terdahulu. Kebanyakan perubahan ini tidak lagi mengutamakan pemakanan berkhasiat untuk kesihatan yang optima.

2. Ahli keluarga kini mempunyai jadual yang berbeza. Kalau zaman dulu, ahli keluarga tinggal bersama, hidup lebih relaks dan tenang dan menikmati masa makan yang sama. Berbanding kita?

3. Penggunaan microwave yang semakin meningkat. Hampir semua rumah ada microwave kan? Saya bukan nak kata tak bagus tapi bila ada microwave bermakna kaedah membuat makanan itu dah berubah –> processed food. Rule of thumb: Semakin banyak process food, semakin banyak nutrien hilang daripada makanan. Get it?

Justeru, itulah sebab mengapa untuk masa kini vitamin supplement NO LONGER AN OPTION — IT A MUST.

Berbalik kepada produk bayi, banyak produk bayi sebenarnya mengandungi chemicals yang berupa racun dan toxin. Cuba lihat label pada botol produk bayi anda. Ada tak bahan seperti berikut:

•    Phthalates – used in baby shampoos and baby plastic chew toys may de-masculize baby boys and cause endocrine-disruptions.  Phthalates are found in literally thousands of personal care products including baby soap, baby shampoo, and baby skin moisturizers. They  are also used to make baby chew/soft vinyl toys. (CBS News Reports)

•    Parabens – (linked to cancer) are preservatives in food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics products. Parabens are absorbed through intact skin and from the gastrointestinal tract and blood.

•   Sodium lauryl sulfate – a main ingredient in soaps, baby shampoos, baby bubble bath, baby body washes, toothpastes and mostly personal care products used  women and children.  This chemical is a skin irritant and an endocrine disruptor.

•   1,4-dioxane – A probable human carcinogen it may also suppress the immune system. This chemical solvent is a petroleum-derived contaminant found in cosmetics, shampoos, body wash, face wash, infant’s personal care products including baby shampoo and baby lotions and cremes, children’s bath products and other sudsing cosmetics.

•   Formaldehyde –  A colorless, pungent-smelling gas Formaldehyde can cause watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea, and difficulty in breathing. High concentrations may trigger attacks in people with asthma. It has also been shown to cause cancer in animals and humans.

•    Mineral Oil –  (Coal Tar) Mineral Oil is used in just about every daily care beauty product including baby shampoo, lotion, bubble bath and baby oil. Repeated use of this chemical has a variety of adverse side effects. On the skin, mineral oil reduces the production of vitamin D by creating an extra layer or covering on the top layer of skin. If used in excess, Mineral Oil can clog pores preventing the release of toxins from the body, an essential function of the skin. Long-term use can cause permanent skin damage, dermatitis and or other skin irritations and rash.  More Shockers!

Fakta Berkenaan Bayi

Kulit bayi sangat sensitif sehingga membolehkannya menyerap kandungan chemicals dan toksin ni lebih pantas daripada orang dewasa. Contohnya: 
• Most diaper rashes last about 24 hours and are caused by wet diapers. Some baby creams contain boric acid and camphor.  These chemicals can further irritate baby’s tender skin.
• Studies have found that massaging your baby can improve their digestion, circulation, and sleep patterns. And it’s a great way to bond with your little one! Baby needs massage and tender handling without harmful chemicals being rub into their tender skin.
Apa tindakan kita?
1.  Stop buying unsafe baby personal care products, today. Read the labels or buy your baby care products and vitamins from a trusted source.
2. Start doing research on the baby care products you use. Do not be duped just because your mama used the same products. There are hundreds of books, websites and blogs on the subject. Do a quick google search and see what you discover. Sit down with a bottle or jar in front of your computer and type in just one or 2 names of the chemicals on the back of your products.
3. Get involved. It’s difficult to fight big industry alone so join the fight with an active group — make a donation or paint a sign.  Join the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics now, learn more.

5. Or, buy the best organic baby care products available…
