In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Maid Brigade — a Green Clean Certified cleaning service — has posted some interesting information on a possible link between household cleaning products and breast cancer.

According to the short video on their website, scientists are beginning to find a link between household toxins — like those found in cleaning products — and a number of illnesses, including breast cancer.

The video features Maid Brigade’s Consumer Health Advocate Marie Stegner exploring the health risks associated with common household cleaning chemicals as well as ways to keep the family safe.

Unfortunately for me, Vermont does not have any local Maid Brigade maids, so I can’t hire any. I guess it’s up to me to buy only safe cleaning products. And keep my house clean.
