As my research about nutrition expanded, I learned from several different sources that our skin absorbs much of what is put on it (like administered drugs through transdermal patches) and should be considered as much as what we put in our mouths!
About this same time I learned that around 75% of the world’s pesticide use is for cotton. I thought why would I spend this much time, money, and energy finding impeccably pure and nutritious food to eat if what I am putting on my skin (my largest organ) is causing harm to my body!?
So the next stage of my healthy (and happiest!) life began: the search for “nutritious” clothing and skin products.
What a transformation! I never expected the joy that would follow such an overwhelming undertaking!
