cheap footwear = cancer



Holy flippin moly. My footwear could give me cancer.

Sunday, gorgeous weather, Autumn has arrived, and a laundry kinda afternoon. Not your typical weekend, but who's watching. Chores, yuk. I was hanging my clothes up today and just started thinking about ALL of these plastic hangers I use. 

Then it dawned on me that half the stuff in my home is plastic, or some processed chemical wood product. I've heard that some plastics cause cancer, but I never bothered to verify it or look it up. Cancer rates seem epidemic  of recent - but only a few bother to find out the scientific truth. 

Is plastic really that bad? it appears so.

My bare feet walking, sitting, sweating in these closed-cell foam sport sandal could very well be soaking toxic in the bottom of me feet.  My ultra sticky yoga mat is made from what?
