The Story of Cosmetics examines the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. The seven-minute film reveals the implications for consumer and worker health and the environment and outlines ways we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and towards safer alternatives.
Think Dirty® is a mobile app that allows consumers to learn about potentially toxic ingredients in everyday cosmetics and personal care products via a quick search or barcode scan. Currently, the daily growing database has more than 80,000 products available. Think Dirty® also generates a score on the Dirty Meter™ for each product. This score is produced by consolidating information from multiple resources, such as government lists of prohibited chemicals, peer-reviewed journals, non-profit health organizations' reports, and regulatory agencies' guidelines. Think Dirty also has additional social features that encourage users to participate in shopping for safe cosmetics and personal care products. These social features include: challenges, rewards, and in future users can see what their friends’ favourite products.

So if you are having serious health issues that your doctor can't explain, then look in your mouth, and if you see any silver, get your butt to a BIOLOGICAL dentist and have them removed and replaced with a composite that is safe for your specific body. You'll need to get a bio compatibility test to find out what is safe for your specific body.
And then you'll need to detox your body from the mercury.
It's not a quick process, but it is WELL WORTH IT!
