Our stories might be cut from the same cloth or my experiences could echo those of someone close to you. Even if you're in a different season of life, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to identify with what I have to share.
Picture this: I'm a GenX empty-nester, and this part of my story kicked off when I realized the products I grew up with weren't exactly my body's best friends – synthetic toxins, endocrine disruptors, carcinogens, the whole shebang. Our parents had no clue, and let's be real, neither did we.
There's a poplar joke going around social media about how drinking water from the garden hose didn't kill us. It's funny, but is that true? We WERE fine, at least initially, but now I'm seeing diagnoses of thyroid dysfunction, cancer, hormonal issues, and more in way too many of my friends. Not that the hose water is the source of it all, but it's probably one of many sources.
Armed with this newfound awareness, I'm on a mission to spill the tea.
