Nail polish — a highly toxic solvent!

nail polishThrow out your nail polish and nail polish remover! It’s a common source of potent xenohormones which are highly toxic!

“One of the most insidious routes of solvent exposure and toxicity is through fingernail polish and fingernail polish remover. Some of the immediate effects of exposure to solvents include central nervous system (CNS) depression (which would look like fatigue or depression), psychomotor or attention deficits (which would look like incoodination and inability to focus), brain swelling (headaches), CNS capillary damage, and oxygen deprivation in the brain, with possible permanent brain damage resulting in lower cognitive abilities.” – Dr. John R. Lee, MD, What Your Doctor may NOT Tell You About Breast Cancer: How Hormone Balance Can Help Save Your Life

Here are some nontoxic brands to try.

About Donna Pinto

I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles when I was 12. I graduated with a BA in Journalism/Advertising from San Diego State University. After a short stint in magazine ad sales in LA, I was offered my dream job working for Club Med. I spent two years working at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met while working at Club Med in Ixtapa, Mexico. We returned to "real life/jobs" for three years before we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. Together we wrote a book called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life," a quote book for new graduates. Becoming a mom changed my life and I was fortunate to work part-time from home with many amazing nonprofits. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis inspired me to an investigation that culminated in creating DCIS 411 and Give Wellness.

    Thanks Donna!! I’m passing on this information to both of my daughters and others that use nail polish and removers! Don’t want more toxins in our bodies that risk cancer or other long term damage or side effects. Much appreciated and keep up the good work! We love and are so thankful for all your hard work, research and sharing your knowledge with us! Love & Blessings, Kat Ü
