Healthy Living & Chemical Exposure
The most important fact to keep in mind is "Children Are Not Little Adults". Chemical exposure that does not effect adults can be toxic to children and some seniors. Reducing toxins and chemicals in our day-to-day lives helps to protect our children and families from invisible dangers and health risks.
Creating a chemical free, safe, healthy home environment requires lifestyle changes and is one of the most important tasks one can do to protect their families. Reducing chemical exposure goes beyond the garage, laundry room and under the sink. We hardly give any thought to the invisible dangers on the food we consume or in personal care products.
Most importantly is finding practical solutions to reducing chemical exposure. We have outlined a few steps to help you get started. Learn More
Reduce Exposure to Toxic Chemicals in Personal Care Products
What You Can Do
Simple changes in everyday routines can reduce long term exposure to low levels of potentially harmful chemicals.

Reduce Exposure to Pesticides on Food
O3 Pure products help provide safe and healthy food for your family by utilizing the proven technology of O3 (ozone). Ozone is a naturally occurring trace element in the atmosphere that is produced during lightning storms (high voltage passing through the air). Ozone is nothing more than three oxygen atoms electrically bound together. ozone is a highly reactive molecule killing bacteria and other microbes 3,000 times faster than chlorine. In addition washing away infectious microbes from raw meats and fresh produce ozone can oxidize and eliminate many chemical residues from your food. After the ozone oxidizes microbes, pesticieds or chemical reside the only residue is (O2) a molecule of oxygen.
In June 2001 the Food and Drug Administration's final ruling (see below 1) published in their Federal Register, approved ozone as an anti-microbial agent on food including meat and poutry. Furthermore in the Landais et al., m1991 report(2) it stated "Ozone can also destroy pesticides and chemical residues.

Protecting Your Family From Toxic Laundry Detergent
Stop washing your clothing in toxic brand-name laundry detergents, and stop using fabric softeners or dryer sheets. Start using Mother Natures alternative to laundry detergent and fabric softener (soap nuts).

The fruit or the shell contains saponins which have the ability to clean and wash. When the dried shell comes in contact with water they create mild suds silimar to soap. Learn More
