Being Your Own Health Advocate

I am sure you have seen those commercials advertising for a mesothelioma lawyer, where they talk about asbestos-related diseases. My heart always goes out to those who are suffering from one of these diseases, because I feel that this is one of those conditions where people are suffering because of lack of knowledge of what is toxic to our health.

Too often, our government and society write off things as being safe, when they really haven't been studied that thoroughly or that long, and we end up paying the price later. That is why I am such a firm believer in being your own health advocate and educating yourself on what you believe is safe.

A lot of times people look at me as being an alarmist or being obsessed with health and natural living. I try not to take offense at that. I actually feel sorry for those people, because it seems to me that they are walking around each day confused and misinformed about the possible health dangers in their own homes and lives. That is the whole reason I started this blog. I want to help share what I have researched, learned and changed in my own life, so you can make decisions you feel comfortable about for your family's best interest.

These days, you can't be a trusting consumer. You have to be an educated consumer and citizen. I am always looking for your thoughts and tips, so be sure to share them with all of us, so we can all learn and grow together!
