Healthier Living With EWG’s Ratings

This is a terrific resource I found a few weeks back and have been using it to get a better sense of how toxic some of the foods, cleaners, shampoos, etc are that I’ve been eating/using.  I’ve always thought I ate quite healthy and I do for the most part, but I challenge you to open up your fridge and check them out at EWG.  You’ll be shocked!  TIP: there really are no healthy salad dressings.  There are better ones like Annie’s dressings, but it’s best to make your own.

Let’s just say that companies using the latest buzzwords such as “all natural” aren’t exactly creating safe products free from harmful chemicals 🙂

EWG rates many thousands of products from foods, to cleaners, to beauty products with a score of 1 – 10, 10 being the worst.  It’s really tough for products to achieve a 1 or 2, but try to stick with products at 4 or less if possible.
