Default common household products that contain known carcinogens and/or neurotoxins

From email -

Healthy Home Information for the Intelligent Consumer

You can find out what else is lurking on your shelves, go to the National Institutes of Health Library of Medicine Household Products Database - http://www.householdproducts.nlm.nih...ngredients.htm
. You can search almost any brand of cleaner you use, find out what's in it, and uncover its links to health effects.

According to the book, The Safe Shoppers Bible, there are many common household products that contain known carcinogens and/or neurotoxins. Carcinogens are chemicals that cause cancer.

I can add another to the list that most do not know about either. Moth balls. I was told they would keep the spider and mice population down, but they have caused cancer in lab animals.
