Cancer is running rampant. Auto-immune diseases are sky-rocketing. No, we can't protect our families from all the falleness of this world, but we can certainly do our best and then leave the rest in God's hands. Our world is very polluted. Man is good at ruining what God created. However, there is so much good in the world also. We must keep our focus upon these things and make our homes as healthy as possible.
Many toxic chemicals cause cancer. It has been proven that we all have cancer cells in our body but a healthy immune system can keep the cancer cells from getting out of control. Another way is to try and prevent your family from being exposed to toxic chemicals. It has also been proven that the most toxic air is inside the home from all the toxic cleaning chemicals, furniture, carpet, etc. There is a lot we can do to make the air in our homes cleaner. Keep your windows open whenever the weather permits. Use non-toxic products for your home, organic food, safe hair care and body products, buying used things that have had time to air out, wood flooring or tile, and green plants around your home to clean up the air.
We must go back to the ways God created things to be, as much as possible. Use 100% cotton clothing. Eat food exactly the way He created it to be. Cows were meant to eat grass and hay, not grains. The same goes for chicken. Fish were meant to swim free in the ocean, not farm raised where they get all kinds of parasites and diseases. Pets are getting cancer now too from eating dead, processed food instead of food they were created to eat. Cats and dogs were meant to be meat eaters, not grain eaters.
Be more concerned with toxic chemicals over germs and viruses. A healthy body can fight most germs and viruses, but doesn't do as good of a job with toxic chemicals. I've never used any anti-bacterial soap! I don't use regular sunscreen since it is full of chemicals. I make my own deodorant. When my children were sick, I'd research natural ways to help their bodies heal, never depending upon drugs with all of their side effects.
Am I an environmentalist? Not if it includes saving eagles' eggs over saving unborn babies and preaching against having babies, I'm sure not! I do believe in caring for the creation the Lord has blessed us with, including our own bodies and doing what I can in my power and wisdom to keep them as unpolluted as possible!
For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
