The Science

"As the tide of chemicals born of the industrial age has risen to engulf our environment, a drastic change has come about in the nature of the most serious health problems. For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is subject to contact with dangerous chemicals from the moment of conception until death."
Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, 1962

Breast cancer rates in the US have risen correspondingly with the use of deadly chemicals.

In 1960, 1 in 20 American women struggled with the breast cancer. By 2000 the rate had reached 1 in 7.

Worldwide, the mortality rate of breast cancer is epidemic. With over 1 million deaths a year, this is the primary cause of the premature loss of life for women throughout the developed world.

The Truth behind many Lice treatments
  • Lindane (KWELL), used in the treatment of lice & scabies, is banned in at least 18 countries. It is a proven neurotoxin & potent carcinogen, identified as a hazardous substance by the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease. Archives of Env Contam & Tox
  • Children are especially vulnerable to the effects of Lindane, through inhalation, ingestion or absorption through the skin.
  • Lindane may cause vomiting, diarrhea, vertigo, paresthesia, irreversible neurological damage, convulsions, seizures, coma, circulatory collapse, & death. It may also cause liver damage, stillbirths, birth defects, & cancer. Archives of Env Contam & Tox
  • Brain cancer was nearly 5 times more likely in children treated with KWELL (Lindane). Archives of Env Contam & Tox
  • Scientific evidence demonstrates that persistent organic pollutants are altering our children's ability to learn, to resist disease & to reproduce. WWF-UK-Impact of Toxic Chemicals on Children, 2000.
  • One out of every six children in America suffers from problems such as autism., aggression, dyslexia & Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADDH).
  • From 1987 to 1998 the cases of autism rose 210% in California. In New York children with learning disabilities jumped 55% from 1983-1996.
  • Any physician who treats scabies with Lindane should be prepared to explain in a court of law-in the event of neurotoxin side effects-why this product was chosen when safer & efficacious alternatives are available. Barry A. Soloman, MD,JD
  • Laboratory & clinical tests have demonstrated the effectiveness of Neem in eliminating lice & their eggs. Schuld M, Jungen C, Control of Lice & Nits with Neem, Proceedings of the 4th Workshop, 1996, 103
  • Koo-dies' synergistic blend of proven essential oils optimizes the effectiveness of Neem while promoting healthy scalp & hair.
The Truth behind many Pet products
  • Scientific evidence demonstrates that persistent organic pollutants are altering our children's ability to learn, to resist disease, & to reproduce. WWF-UK-Impact of Toxic Chemicals on Children, 2000.
  • Pesticide use and exposure in the home and garden increase the risk of developing Parkinson's disease. American Academy of Neurology, 2000.
  • 8 out of every 10 American homes actively uses pesticides. Pest products present the single greatest threat to your health-even more so for the very young & the elderly. The Environmental Protection Agency, 1999
  • Lingering pesticide residue on toys and other surfaces in homes that have used flea & tick treatments, is likely to cause a child between the ages of three and six to ingest a daily dose of pesticides that is sixty-nine times higher than the dose the EPA considers safe. For younger children who put toys in their mouths, the dose could be as much as 211 times higher. Rutgers University, 1999
  • Neem has demonstrated effectiveness in eliminating parasites such as fleas, ticks and mites in laboratory and clinical tests.
  • Pest Ban's synergistic blend of proven essential oils optimizes the effectiveness of Neem while promoting healthy skin, and coat.


The Truth behind many Mosquito repellants
  • Laboratory studies have concluded long term use of DEET kills brain neurons & has numerous side effects including rashes, seizures and even death.
  • DEET is classified as a pesticide by the EPA & is proven to enter the blood stream by absorption through the skin.
  • The American Association of Pediatrics issued a warning that DEET solutions over 10 percent concentration should not be used on any children, and as little repellent as possible should be used. Infants and pregnant women should not use it at all.
  • Catnip repels mosquitoes more effectively than DEET. Researchers report that the essential oil in Catnip is nearly ten times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET, the compound used in most commercial insect repellents. American Chemical Society, 28, August 2001.
  • Neem oil is an excellent skin moisturizer while DEET is not recommended for repeated application to the skin, around the face or on the hands of small children.
  • Neem oil is a natural vegetable oil while DEET is not recommended to be sprayed on furniture, plastics, watch crystals, leather & painted surfaces including automobiles. DEET may actually dissolve all synthetic fabrics but nylon.
  • Neem oil has been used safely for centuries while DEET is a synthetic chemical that has only been used for a short time & may pose future unknown health risks. Many researchers believe DEET to be partly responsible for the devastating effects of the Gulf War Syndrome.
  • Neem is a healing herb that is famous for its wound healing properties. Cuts, scrapes & poison oak & ivy can be healed with Neem oil salves and lotions, while DEET products contain warnings against getting them in open sores or on damaged skin.
  • Neem extracts tested by the Malaria Institute were found to repel the mosquito that causes malaria for up to twelve hours.
  • Peppermint oil offers an effective solution to mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, filariasis, Dengue fever & West Nile virus. The oil not only repels adult mosquitoes but also kills the larvae. It was particularly effective agaianst the Anopheles culcifacies mosquito, which is responsible for around three-quarters of malaria transmissions in the northern plains of India. BBC News, November 17, 1999.
