The May June 2015 issue of Costco’s magazine had an article about scent marketing.
The Economist had an interesting article in 2007 regarding manipulative chemical use.
Women’s Voices For the Earth has several reports about fragrances and the fragrance industry.
Why should you be concerned? Read on:
People responded even though they couldn’t detect the chemicals! These were not people with chemical “sensitivities”. These were ordinary people.
What are all the chemicals are they targeting our brains with?
What safeguards and laws are in place to protect our brains from harm?
What is being done about adverse effects? (hint: complete denial)
Women’s Voices For the Earth’s newest report “Unpacking the Fragrance Industry” exposes how allowing the fragrance industry to self-regulate, and establish itself as the sole authority on fragrance safety, simply does not serve the public health interest.
Read the report(s) and think about this for a while. Then, if you believe that we shouldn’t be drugged and exposed to toxic chemicals without consent, act!
Stop buying things with undisclosed and unlabeled ingredients, stop shopping from places that scent their air, and demand an end to this practice, a practice that has serious public health implications!
