About Lacey's Organics ~ Miessence

Hi, my name is Lacey Evans. This is the story of my journey to organic living. I would like to tell you a bit about myself and why I started this website. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. Growing up I lived in the Santa Monica Mountains and was very lucky to be able to spend time outdoors in the clean air and emerse myself in nature. In college I was drawn to the environment and studied environmental science. I learned quite a lot about the environment, eco systems, geology, climate change and the like, but I didn't learn anything about making a difference or helping to change. I began to dig deeper and educated myself through the internet, movies, organizations and such. I thought I was doing everything i could in regards to saving the environment. I was very wrong. As I started learning about pesticides and its effects on our bodies, I started to eat organically. I tried to have a "rainbow of foods" everyday and to limit the processed foods I ate. Again, I thought I was taking great care of myself and doing the best I could, and AGAIN, I was wrong. I saw a short video about cosmetics and household products. The video explained not only the effects of the toxic chemicals found in our everyday cosmetics and cleaning products, but also about the after effects of these toxins when washed down the drains. I was shocked to learn that I had been slowly poisoning myself, the environment and everyone else because of these chemicals I used everyday! It was quite a wake up call. I went to my bathroom and started investigating. I read the label of every product I had. Woah! Not only could I hardly read the majority of ingredients on the labels, but when I looked up the ingredients, the negative health effects associated with them were overwhelming. I really was poisoning myself over and over every day. I ended up throwing every single product I had in the trash. I had been wasting all this money on heavily advertised personal "care" products that were just bottles of toxic crap. *I found a wonderful site that rates cosmetic products based on their toxicity levels. I highly recommend checking this site out and looking up all of your products. They have almost everything listed! http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ I kept researching...I thought maybe I could use baby products instead, they must be safe. WRONG! The baby products had some of the worst toxin ratings out there. Around the same time I was invited to a "party" that turned out to be a "natural" product party. I was very interested in the products and went home ready to do my research on the company. Maybe I had finally found a product I felt comfortable using on myself, my family and to recommend to people. Sadly, after my research I found the product was just another company involved in "greenwashing". If you don't already know, "Greenwashing" is when green marketing is deceptively used to promote the perception that an organization's aims and policies are environmentally friendly. The company claimed to be natural, but really was not. Don't get me wrong, they were significantly better and healthier than most of the mainstream commercial products I had been using, but I needed more. I wanted to be 100% sure that what my skin was eating was actually good for me. Again...I did more research...I came across a company that fit exactly what I was looking for. Their products were certified organic, to food quality standards...I could eat them if I wanted! And not only that, their business practices were enviromentally friendly and promoted sustainability. Everything from supporting local farmers, planting trees to offset their carbon footprint, to wind powered production plants, this company was switched on as far as I was concerned. I signed up as a representative to take advantage of the amazing product discounts and after using the products for a few months, I was confident I had found what I was looking for and a company I could honestly support. So here I am, helping people get the information they need, the information companies want to keep hidden from us and to share my discoveries with the world. I hope this site gives you organic inspiration and helps you to be the purest and best version of you so together we can be the purest and best us, and maybe change the world, or at least our health!

Is your shampoo harming your health?

Image

Most people use a shampoo to wash their hair on a regular basis; however, many of those people aren’t aware that this common hair care product may contain ingredients that could be harming their health. For many, their choice of shampoo comes down to cost, brand, perceived effectiveness or even fragrance; however, a growing number of consumers are now reading the ingredients on shampoo bottles and basing their purchasing decisions on safety.

Shampoos are generally made from a mixture of water, some form of foaming agent and a variety of other ingredients that combine to make a product that smells good, looks good and appears to do its intended job of cleaning hair. But some of the ingredients that are commonly used are harsh chemicals that have been shown to be potentially harmful to human health, either individually or in combination with other ingredients, and may pose various health risks ranging from skin conditions to cancer.

Listed below are a few of the more commonly used ingredients and just some of their potential health risks:

Propylene Glycol

  • Skin irritant
  • Potentially toxic or harmful to organ systems
  • May enhance absorption of other chemicals into the body via the skin
  • Potential immune system toxicity, skin toxicity and allergies

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate or SLS

  • Potentially toxic or harmful to human health
  • Irritant to skin and eyes
  • May prevent proper development of children’s eyes
  • Potential environmental toxin

Sodium Laureth Sulphate or SLES

  • Potentially toxic or harmful to human health
  • Skin and eye irritant
  • Regularly contaminated with Ethylene Dioxide and/or 1-4 Dioxane, both of which are extremely hazardous. They may cause cancer and reproductive problems and are toxic to most body systems.

DEA/TEA

  • Hazardous to human health
  • Potentially carcinogenic (may cause cancer)
  • Toxic to the immune system and may cause allergies
  • Toxic to organ systems
  • Regularly contaminated with nitrosamines, which may be toxic to the liver and digestive, reproductive and other body systems and may cause cancer

PEG

  • Potentially toxic or harmful to human health
  • Potentially toxic to organ systems
  • Often contaminated with Ethylene Dioxide and/or 1-4 Dioxane (see SLES above)

When confronted with this information for the first time, consumers are often shocked and upset; it is natural to assume that personal care products are safe for us to use. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and profits are the motivation for many companies. It is safe to say that human health and safety are not priorities for the companies that use these ingredients. Companies like Miessence are different.  Offering a wide range of certified organic personal care products so pure, you could eat them, they are pioneers in the personal care industry.  Click here to watch a short video about Miessence.

Bottled Water: Your New Hormone Disruptor

chemicals-in-bottled-water-320

Some chemicals in bottled water are so potent, they’re the equivalent to hormone-replacing cancer drugs, researchers have found.

BY EMILY MAIN

Doling out $2.00 for a bottle of water instead of packing your reusable water bottle might seem a small price to pay for the convenience of a healthy drink, but how much is that daily bottle costing you in the long run? German researchers have just published a study in the respected journal PLoS One finding nearly 25,000 chemicals in bottled water. And some of those chemicals act like potent pharmaceuticals in your body.

The study’s authors purchased 18 different samples of commercially sold bottled water from France, Italy, and Germany and, using various methods of chemical analysis, tested the water for its ability to interfere with the body’s estrogen and androgen (testosterone and other male reproductive hormone) receptors. They threw in a sample of tap water to act as a sort of ringer. The majority of bottled waters tested interfered with both kinds of hormone receptors to some degree, the researchers wrote; amounts as little as 0.1 ounces inhibited estrogenic activity by 60 percent and androgenic activity by 90 percent. The latter, the researchers wrote, is equivalent to the hormonal activity of the drug flutamide, a hormonal drug commonly prescribed to men suffering from prostate cancer. The tap water didn’t exhibit any estrogenic or androgenic activity.

For the second part of the study, the scientists were trying to learn which chemicals were causing the interference with reproductive hormones. So they used another form of chemical detection and discovered the water contained 24,520 different chemicals. The most hormonally active belonged to classes of chemicals called maleates and fumarates, which are used to manufacture the form of plastic resins used in water bottles. They can also appear as contaminants of other plastic chemicals.

The mere presence of these chemicals doesn’t mean that bottled water is going to cause you major lifelong problems; hormonally active chemicals, usually called endocrine disruptors, are known to interfere with the reproductive development of children, but more research is finding that they can also trigger heart disease, diabetes, and infertility, among other problems, in adults. But it is concerning that they are there, Bruce Blumberg, PhD, of the University of California–Irvine, told Britain’s Royal Society of Chemicals. “It is a bit early to make any strong inferences about how detrimental these chemicals will be toward human health,” he says, but adds, “It is certain that they are not beneficial.”

But you can now tack iffy chemicals onto the laundry list of reasons to avoid bottled water, most notably:

1. It’s an environmental nightmare. Unnecessary fossil fuels are required to manufacture the oil-based plastic bottles and to ship those bottles hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles from the water’s source to your grocery store. The Container Recycling Institute estimates that just 30 percent of those bottles get recycled.

2. It’s no safer than tap. Chemicals aside, numerous independent tests, including those from the independent Government Accountability Office, have found that bottled water, which is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is much more weakly regulated than tap, which is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA requires daily, weekly, and monthly testing for a wide list of contaminants, while the FDA requires yearly testing, which is often done at the discretion of water bottlers.

3. It usually IS tap water, yet you’re paying 1,000 times more for it. The only upside to that last downside is that frequently, bottled water is nothing more than municipal (EPA-regulated) tap water that’s been filtered once or twice more. Then a major beverage company puts it in a chemical-laden plastic bottle and sells it to you for a 1,000-percent markup. Remember, it’s something you could get virtually free simply by grabbing a glass and turning on your faucet.

Carry a refillable nontoxic glass or stainless steel bottle with you wherever you go, and you’ll avoid all those problems—and save a fortune, to boot.

Is Your Shampoo Loaded with This Cancer Causer?

20130922-174624.jpgPromises of more volume, shine, and botanical extracts may lure you in as you browse the shampoo aisle, but you may want to turn your attention to the tiny ingredients lists on the bottles as you shop to make sure you’re not choosing a product that will have you showering yourself in a carcinogenic chemical every day.

According to a new report from the Center for Environmental Health, dozens of shampoos, soaps, and other personal care products the nonprofit group tested contained cocamide diethanolamine, otherwise known as cocamide DEA. The basis of the chemical—coconut oil—seems innocent enough. But scientists tinker with the ingredient, modifying it into an unnatural, toxic form.

The kicker? The change is not even necessary. The chemical is usually added as a thickening and foaming agent.

California listed cocamide DEA as a known carcionogen in 2012 under its Prop 65 law, which requires warning labels on consumer products containing carcinogens or reproductive toxicants.

The Center for Environmental Health recently filed a California lawsuit against four companies that sell shampoo and personal care products containing the toxic chemical without a warning label. The group detected cocamide DEA in shampoo ingredients sold in stores like Walmart, Target, Babies ‘R’ Us, and other major national retailers. Some name brands contained the carcinogen, as did store brands sold at Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Pharmaca, and Kohl’s, according to the nonprofit. “Most people believe that products sold in major stores are tested for safety, but consumers need to know that they could be doused with a cancer-causing chemical every time they shower or shampoo,” said Michael Green, executive director of the Center for Environmental Health. “We expect companies to take swift action to end this unnecessary risk to our children’s and families’ health.”

Some other things uncovered through the center’s independent testing:
• A store brand children’s bubble bath from Kmart and a children’s shampoo and conditioner from Babies ‘R’ Us also contained cocamide DEA.
• Falsely labeled organic products from Organic by Africa’s Best also tested for high levels of the cancer-causing chemical
• One shampoo tested contained a whopping 20 percent cocamide DEA.
See the list of shampoos reportedly containing cocamide DEA.

Here’s how to clean up your shampoo routine:

Choose safer shower staples. Look for safer shampoos, such as Miessence Certified Organic Personal Care Products. When you’re on the road, old-fashioned nontoxic shampoo bars work well, too.

Rate Your Shampoo | Find Safer Options

Know the other no-no’s. Cocamide DEA also goes by other names on ingredients lists, notes Environmental Working Group, a consumer-safety group. (See the list.)

Make your bathroom a safe zone. To create a truly healthy bathroom, replace vinyl shower curtains with a less-toxic plastic like ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA). Better yet, choose hemp or cotton shower curtains. (Hemp is naturally mildew resistant.) For more tips, read

Six dangerous prescription drugs you should think twice before taking

Image

by: Ethan A. Huff,

Just because your doctor prescribes it does not necessarily mean it is safe for you to take. Many popular prescription drugs, it turns out, come with the potential for serious side effects, including everything from short-term nausea and headaches to chronic inflammatory myopathy and heart disease — or worse.

But this important information is often shrouded from public view, which intentionally perpetuates the myth that the benefits of FDA-approved drugs far outweigh any risks. So to give you a more solid understanding of the subject, here are six classes of prescription drugs you should definitely think twice about taking due to their inherent dangers:

1) Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Millions of Americans take PPIs to alleviate the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition marked by food and acid in the stomach leaking back into the esophagus and causing damage. But PPIs like Nexium (exomeprazole) and Prevacid (lansoprazole) have been shown to both block nutrient absorption and inhibit the production of necessary stomach acid, which can cause a host of other health problems. (http://well.blogs.nytimes.com)

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued at least a dozen warnings about the dangers of PPIs, which include an increased risk of bacterial diarrhea, magnesium deficiency, and bone fractures (http://www.fda.gov). Long-term consumption of PPIs has also been linked to increased risk of pneumonia and unhealthy weight gain.
(http://www.naturalnews.com/036336_PPIs_acid_reflux_side_effects.html)

2) Statins. The top-selling class of drugs for several years in a row, statins are hailed by the medical system as a type of miracle cure for high cholesterol and heart disease. But popular statin drugs like Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) and Crestor (rosuvastatin calcium) have been shown to greatly increase users’ risk of diabetes, liver disease, brain damage, muscle atrophy, and even early death. (http://www.drfranklipman.com)

The side effects of statins are so severe, in fact, that the FDA recently expanded its official warnings about their use (http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm293330.htm). Beyond this, more than a dozen studies have shown that taking statins for primary prevention does little, if anything, to prevent heart attack or stroke, which means the drug class is medically useless for the millions of otherwise healthy people who are prescribed it. (http://www.minnpost.com)

3) Antibiotics. The leading cause of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs,” antibiotics are another class of drugs that can cause long-term health problems without providing much, if any, benefit. Insanely overprescribed for conditions that often do not even respond to them, antibiotics and their long-term abuse by the medical system has made many infections more virulent and untreatable.

According to Shane Ellison, M.S., from The People’s Chemist, the three most dangerous antibiotics currently being prescribed are Levaquin (levofloxacin), Vancocin (vancomycin hydrochloride), and Bactrim (trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole). Ellison also lists quinolones, the most commonly prescribed class of antibiotics, as dangerous as well, noting that antibiotics like Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Avelox (moxifloxacin HCL), and Floxin (ofloxacin) can cause severe and permanent disability. (http://thepeopleschemist.com)

4) Antipsychotics. One of the deadliest drug classes, antipsychotics are commonly prescribed for conditions like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and severe major depression, as well as for many “off-label” conditions such as mild mood disorder and everyday anxiety. But popular antipsychotic drugs like Seroquel (quetiapine fumarate), Abilify (aripiprazole), Risperdal (risperidone), and Zyprexa (olanzapine) have been shown to increase blood sugar levels, elevate lipid and cholesterol levels, and promote weight gain. (http://www.nytimes.com)

But even more concerning is the long-term neurological and brain damage that can result from taking antipsychotics, not to mention the greatly elevated risk of metabolic syndrome, which can include major health conditions like cardiovascular disease and diabetes (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/11/121127190016.htm). Antipsychotics are so dangerous that a study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) declared them to be more deadly than terrorism. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

5) Opioid pain relievers. Pharmaceutical drugs have officially been declared a leading cause of death in America today, and leading the way are opioid-based painkillers like Vicodin (hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen), OxyContin (oxycodone HCI), Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen), codeine, and morphine.

According to a study out of Brandeis University in Massachusetts, prescription painkillers are now responsible for causing more fatal overdoses than both heroin and cocaine combined. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has actually declared an epidemic in response to this elevated number of prescription painkiller deaths. (http://www.naturalnews.com)

6) Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Antidepressants like Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine), and Lexapro (escitalopram) have been around for years, but their dangers typically receive far less attention than they deserve. Side effects like suicidal tendencies, sexual dysfunction, gastrointestinal bleeding, and heart disease are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the many side effects of SSRIs.

In some cases, SSRIs can actually make depression symptoms worse, leading some individuals to become violent. Be sure to watch the Health Ranger’s music video S.S.R.Lies for a creative glimpse at the dangers of SSRIs: http://www.naturalnews.com

Omega-3 fatty acids reverse nerve and spine damage

Image 

by: Raw Michelle

 

New research out of UCLA is giving doctors hope that their discovery may eventually lead to a treatment for individuals whose walking has been impaired by damage to their spinal cords.

Choking a communication highway

As people age, the tiny hole through the center of each vertebrae gradually constricts, increasing the pressure that is placed on the spinal cord itself. The pressure, in unfortunate cases, can become great enough to cause distress to the individual, and damage to their mobility and nerve function. Currently, treatment is surgical relief of the pressure. Unfortunately, individuals tend to seek medical attention because of symptoms like pain and problems with motor skills, both of which are indications that spinal cord damage is already underway. Relieving the pressure with surgery won’t reverse the nerve damage, but nerves do have an incredible plasticity that allows them the potential to heal the damage.

A common problem for an aging population

A condition called cervical spondylotic myelopathy involves compression of the spinal cord by the vertebrae. The condition is common in individuals with progressively degenerative diseases that can affect bone tissue, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. “Cervical”, a term which is often used to refer to the fluted opening of the uterus, actually means “neck”, after which the cervix is named. The cervical vertebrae are, consequently, the ones directly beneath the skull and above the shoulders.

Because the condition effects communication between the brain and the rest of the body, compression can result in problems like pain, numbness or difficulty moving when trying to use their arms and legs. Among individuals over the age of 55, it represents the most common type of walking impairment caused by the spine. Surgery is the preferred method of correction.

A good sign for chronic spinal injuries

In an attempt to address the problematic nerve damage that the compression may have caused, researchers have replicated the Standard American Diet – high in sugar and fat – in rats, to examine how inflammation might impact the process, and the healing pattern that would arise. They also created two other test groups. One simply received a normal rat diet, and the other received a normal diet with supplements of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a curcumin found in the yellow spice, turmeric. DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, is beneficial in the repartition of damaged cells. All of the rats suffered from spinal cord injury.

Researchers investigated the impact that various dietary adjustments might have on the progress of nerve regeneration. Over the course of the trial, the rats on the standard Western diet exhibited walking difficulty that progressively worsened. After eating the American diet for three weeks, the condition was already deteriorating. The rats on the DHA diet, by contrast, were making improvements in walking ability by only six weeks. When examined at a cellular level, the groups showed levels of nerve damage that directly corresponded to their walking ability.

Twelve highly toxic chemicals to banish from your home

Image

1. DEET (N, N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide) is the most common active ingredient in insect repellents. One-third of all Americans use this repellant, which has been shown to be toxic to the central nervous system. Natural insect repellant solutions exist; otherwise, candles with eucalyptus oil or citronella oil in the area will do the trick.

2. Glyphosate is the chief ingredient used in Monsanto’s Roundup, which has been link to birth defects, DNA damage, hormone disruption, cancer and neurological disorders. Ditch this weed killer for good. Get rid of weeds naturally, using boiling water, vinegar, salts or pulling them out by hand.

3. Phthalates are most commonly found in air fresheners. They also exist in vinyl, wood varnishes and lacquers. Pthalates disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive and neurological damage. Avoid the word “fragrance” on air fresheners, as it can be a synonym for pthalates. Candles are a better alternative.

4. Bisphenol A (BPA), which is found in nine out of ten Americans, is used in food containers, baby bottles, plastic bottles and CDs. Scientists have linked BPA to heart disease, diabetes and liver abnormalities, as well as brain and hormone development problems in fetuses and children. Be sure to buy BPA free plastics with recycling codes 1, 2 or 5. Recycling codes 3 and 7 are more likely to include BPA or phthalates.

5. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gasses from certain solids or liquids. These unsafe substances add to indoor air pollution and are linked to asthma and cancer. Paints, pesticides, lacquers, building materials and office equipment can all contain VOCs; however, the biggest culprit of VOC emissions in the home are scented, petroleum-based laundry detergents. Instead, buy plant based, unscented laundry detergents and look for no-VOC paints. Avoid plywood and particleboard when possible and keep VOCs contained by waterproofing any plywood furniture with safe sealant products.

6. Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) flame retardants, which are linked to hormone disruption, developmental deficiencies and cancer, are used in furniture and electrical equipment. Tests showed that toxic fire retardant chemicals contaminate the bodies of ninety-nine percent of pregnant women. When buying new products, always ask the manufacturers what type of fire retardants they use.

7. Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are used in non-stick cookware like Teflon, as well as in stain-resistant fabrics. PFCs are believed to cause birth defects and cancer and have shown to be highly concentrated in the breast milk of nursing mothers. Instead, use stainless steel or iron cast cookware and avoid buying stain resistant furniture.

8. Perchloroethylene (PCE) is a chemical used in dry cleaning that has already been banned in Europe and Canada. PCE causes toxic effects in the liver, kidney and central nervous system. It is much easier now to find green dry cleaners that use chemical free methods.

9. Formaldehyde is used in carpentry, soaps, detergents, cabinetry and glues. Formaldehyde is an extremely toxic carcinogen that was rated as a high level threat for causing cancer by the Environmental Working Group. To reduce your exposure, purchase solid wood furniture or make sure that pressed wood products are sealed.

10. Triclosan is used to make antibacterial soaps, which promote antibiotic resistance in bacteria, thus creating super bacteria. When triclosans are mixed with chlorinated tap water, the toxic gas chloroform is created. Stop using antibacterial soaps and switch to a natural alternative.

11 & 12. Chlorine and ammonia are deadly ingredients commonly used in household cleaners, including toilet bowl and oven cleaner. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that chlorine byproducts are 300,000 times more carcinogenic than the chemical pesticide DDT. Instead, use cleaners such as baking soda, lemon juice, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and castile soap.

80,000 different untested chemicals, not proven to be safe, are sold in the U.S. Many of these chemicals are known to be to dangerous, yet they continue to be sold.
