ARC Living with Autism Conference

This was a great time conference. How could it not be? Temple Grandin was the all day speaker and presiding super star of the event. There were over 800 people in one room. All having a great time and learning a lot! We had some different conversations here because many of those in attendance were parents. These were people who were already knowledgeable about safe chemistry as they have been raising and living with environmentally sensitive children. Again, we got a perspective about how unique SafeNow products are and also learned what a tough time parents have in creating an environment that is “toxin” free. We understand. Our research shows that damned near everything we bring into our homes to clean something has something not so go for us in it. And it sticks to the walls, floor, and other surfaces we are cleaning. It gets into the air we breathe. And the rest we flush down the drain .. and that eventually gets into our drinking water and, thus, into US!

As if that weren’t bad enough, all sorts of research is starting to show a connection between this “chemical surround” we live in and a whole variety of neurological and physical conditions. Recent research, in fact, is saying that air pollution affects the fetus and damages cells of the hippocampus. The hippocampus is a part of our brain that – From Wikipedia – “plays important roles in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory and spatial navigation.” The headline of this article was Air Pollution and Autism.

It is pretty clear to me that whether we consider ourselves “sensitive” or not that we all need to be cleaning up our household environments. Get rid of anything that could be harmful and that includes anything that says to, “call the Dr.” if ingested. That means that it is not safe no matter how many times “green” appears on the label. So you can understand why we are so passionate about getting the SafeNow story out there. Please feel free to help out. Buy and use SafeNow. Tell your friends and family. And if there is a way we can help you get your organization packaging, using, and selling it, all the better! It is more than a good idea.
