We like to think that many of our everyday products are safe. But the truth is many contain ingredients that are harmful. Now, an app can help you find out just how dangerous each product is by simply scanning the barcode.
“I came to realize once I had the information about those ingredients, that were potentially harmful and linked to human health issues, I had them all,” said mother of three, Susan Erb. “I had them all in my cabinets.”
It began with a scary realization for Erb, “It first started probably when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, her cancer was actually hormone receptive positive.”
Prompting her to change her and her family’s ways, “I became more proactive in looking at different products and things that caused cancer, specifically to breast cancer.”
