But maybe it hasn’t come far enough. Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmedthat asbestos — a known carcinogen that’s unsafe at any level — had been found in eye shadow, foundation, and other make-up products marketed to pre-teen girls.

24. jún je sviatkom Jána Krstiteľa a jeho sila je spojená so začiatkom astronomického leta, s letným slnovratom, ktorý pripadá na 21. jún. Dodnes sa moc tejto noci oslavuje svätojánskymi ohňami, rôznymi magickými praktikami a zvykmi. V období letného slnovratu má slnko najväčšiu silu a dni sú najdlhšie z celého roku. Je to najsilnejší a najkrajší sviatok energetického rytmu Matky Zeme. V dobách, kedy ľudia ešte žili v tesnom spojení s prírodou, žili podľa jej rytmov a zákonitostí, ctili si príro...

Those who exclusively drink bottled water rather than tap water can add up to 90,000 plastic particles to their estimated annual total, according to the studypublished Wednesday in the journ...

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently banned 12 products containing neonicotinoid, a pesticide that functions similarly to nicotine. Neonicotinoids have been linked to impaired memory, movement, and death in bees, which are critical to the world's crop production. Seven of the recently banned pesticides are used to protect crops like soybeans, cotton, and corn from diseases and pests.
